Covid-19 Management & Vitamin Supplement List (Ivermectin Update)

Supplement Recommendation Measures For Immune System as it relates to Covid-19, and important information about Ivermectin.

UPDATE: I have just added lots more information about Ivermectin, which is proven to dramatically hinder the progress of Covid-19, if infected…

“Prophylaxis” : measures designed to preserve health (as of an individual or of society) and prevent the spread of disease.

Someone here on MSB recommended a link to a PDF from Eastern Virginia Medical School. It is titled, “Critical Care COVID-19 Management Protocol” (summary to a more detailed paper).

It’s a PDF (linked below) which lists treatment for Covid-19. It includes preventative efforts as well as treating mildly symptomatic Covid-19 at home, and at Hospital.

The reason I’m posting this is because I found it interesting that I’m taking most of the same supplements as recommended in their document.

Prophylaxis for Covid-19

  • Vitamin C 500 mg BID (twice daily)
  • Quercetin 250 mg daily
  • Vitamin D3 1000-4000 u/day
  • B complex vitamins
  • Zinc 30-50 mg/day
  • Melatonin (slow release): Begin with 0.3mg and increase as tolerated to 2 mg at night
  • Ivermectin for post-exposure prophylaxis (200 ug/kg immediately, then repeat on day 3) and prophylaxis in high-risk groups (200 ug/kg day 1, then day 3 and then every 4 week s)

(New Ivermectin Information Below)

I have researched this since Covid-19 came on scene. There are many sources of information for recommendations to help one’s-self for better resilience of Covid-19, and better immune system in general.

The list of supplements are widely agreed upon to varying extents by many reputable sources.

*It is always good (better) to consume foods which contain the nutrients you’re looking for. When you can’t get enough that way, then supplements are the next best thing.


For example, I wrote about foods that are high in zinc. Meat has a good amount of zinc (as one example). But to get the 30 mg as listed above, that would equate to about ~ 20 ounce steak a day. While that might be delicious, a supplement would be helpful. I take a 30 mg supplement every day.

Most people are vitamin D deficient. Especially during the winter! I take a 5,000 IU supplement of vitamin D3 each day.

>> Nature Wise D3, 5000iu

There are some fruits and vegetables that provide a decent amount of vitamin C. However it is well known that vitamin C supplementation is favorable to one’s immune system. I use vitamin C powder and add it to a glass of water and make each dose 500 mg. I drink two glasses of this a day.

Again, this is widely recognized as a good thing. I take one tablet of “B Super Complex” each day.

>> Super-B Complex


I discovered Quercetin during my early research of Covid-19 and immune system support. I take a 250 mg tab each day.

This was interesting. So, melatonin is a sleep aid. We keep a bottle of 3 mg tablets, just in case. They make it in a variety of strengths. I definitely would not take this unless I wanted to get sleepy! So not during the day for sure! Anyway, it’s listed for Covid-19 from 0.3 mg to 2 mg. Maybe a small dosage at night before bed?

>> Nature’s Bounty, 3mg



This is by prescription only here in the United States. Consult your doctor.

Unfortunately not all doctors are prescribing this. Which in my view (and the opinion of many, many doctors) is ridiculous, and even unethical. Watch the video I’ve included below this section. Hundreds of thousands in the U.S. alone have probably needless died because they were not prescribed Ivermectin during early onset of the disease.

Ivermectin Dose for Covid-19

The Ivermectin dosage for Covid treatment is widely established. Worldwide. Search yourself and you will find MANY reputable sources to establish this fact. Just don’t use ‘G r o o g l’ because they unfortunately hide this type of information. Which is also ridiculous because this information is NOT controversial. It’s proven fact. All over the world. Do you due-diligence and you will see for yourself…

As listed above (and anywhere else you’ll look), for normal adults,

“200 ug/kg immediately, then repeat on day 3”

Let me translate that…

200 micrograms per kilogram of your weight. Or…
90 micrograms per pound.

If you happen to weigh 185 pounds, that’s 90 x185 = 16650 micrograms.

16650 ug (micrograms) / 1000 = 16 mg (milligrams) (rounded)

A tablet of Ivermectin (Stromectol) is typically 3 mg.

So in this example, the 185 pound human would take 5 (or 6) of these tablets per dose of Ivermectin.

“Stromectol should be taken on an empty stomach with water.”

Stromectol (Ivermectin) Dosage and Administration

Here’s a chart from for Stromectol (Ivermectin) which lists this exact dosage, although for treating a different condition (Ivermectin works on lots of other disease too). So I will use this chart to translate/equate to American units (pounds) versus number of tablets.

Body Weight Single Oral Dose
(kg) (pounds)Number of 3-mg Tablets
15-24 kg (33 – 53 pounds)1 tablet
25-35 (55 – 77 pounds)2 tablets
36-50 (79 – 110 pounds)3 tablets
51-65 (112 – 143 pounds)4 tablets
66-79 (145 – 174 pounds)5 tablets
≥80 (>176 pounds)200 mcg/kg (90 mcg/pound)

Getting Out The Ivermectin Message

There are many, many doctor voices and organizations screaming out to push this important message. They’ve been trying here in the U.S. for a long time. But very powerful politics and agendas are in their way.

One organization of doctors is called Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance, Prevention & Treatment Protocols for COVID-19. Very interesting information if you’re interested to check it out.

Here are some current results of Ivermectin trials under way as of this post update:

Here’s another:

And more:

Doctor Ryan Cole

He recently spoke about the subject of importance for Vitamin D as well as Ivermectin (among other Covid topics). I highly recommend you watch it (28 minutes).

However if you want to jump to the Ivermectin part, it begins at the 14:30 mark.

Maybe this will be of interest to some of you. Prevention is a good thing. A healthy body and immune system is a very good thing!!!

Fortunately Covid-19 has a very high survival rate for most people.

Age 0-19: 99.997%
Age 20-49: 99.98%

As you all should know by now, the highest risk groups are the very elderly with comorbidity issues / other health problems. But even with that said, a 99.5% survival rate for those 50 – 69 years of age (including those with comorbidity issues). And 94.6% for 70+ with the caveats mentioned.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Which is why I supplement as indicated above.

  1. I’m totally on board with vitamins. Not familiar with ivermectin? I take the rest and also take tumeric among others.

    1. Ivermectin is a very common anti-parasitic used on livestock. I dose my cattle to kill intestinal worms and other parasites.

      It is said that the livestock version is different from the human version… I don’t know if I believe that, because most animal medicines are the same as human…

      Anyway, I have already had my dose of Ivermectin, whether I wanted it or not.

      1. It is done by weight. And everyone should always to their own research to check for allergies and reactions.

      2. He is probably talking about the fact that when you pour the ivermectin on the back of the cows like I do, he doesn’t wear gloves and splashes it all over himself like I do, in cow level doses, we even put a cowboy in the crush and dosed him against his will, and sure he did get cancer a few years later, but he smoked a lot, so it probably wasn’t the ivermectin.

        For what it’s worth, he came up swinging.

      3. Vickie ,,,,,,,,,BULL,,,,,,,, you don’t know what your talking about ,,,,,i got splashed a full dose several times a day working in the ped. Clinic. And yes it was the cattle pore on with a sticker over the human use label

    2. Ivermectin is a potent dewormer/antiparasitic, and apparently recognized as an antiviral across much of the world. Unfortunately in the US most of the medical “officials” have made it their job to discredit a drug that is in use against COVID across most of the world. The published papers and studies are interesting and seem to show it highly effective, both in preventing infection and in reducing the severity of the disease, but only outside the US. It doesn’t make any money for big pharma, so they’re fighting against it in preference for their vaccine.

      1. Lauren: We have consulted with our family doctor who is an internal medicine specialist and two relatives who are also doctors.They are all
        in agreement that Ivermectin is the best possible treatment currently available.
        There are and will always be skeptics.While they ring their hands and
        rant wild conspiracy theories our countrymen are dying unnecessarily
        because of lack of information.
        It is time to start believing the science.Dr.Chris Martenson,Dr John Campbell,and especially Dr.Pierre Kory and his colleagues at FLCCC
        are at the forefront of this battle.
        Do whatever you can to acquire a supply of oral Ivermectin.Your life is to valuable to do otherwise.

    3. Yes, DO your on research.!
      Ivermectin CAN react with blood thinners, warfarin/coumadin specifically… also….If you are ill it can definitely save your life,
      ….anything one takes can cause an adverse reaction. check each medication or supplement to make sure you take nothing any addition would/could “clash” with. Look this information up before you take this drug and make sure you are taking nothing with an adverse reaction.

      Quercetin: Dose i found for preventative was 500mg daily..for highest antiviral effect.

      D3 Drs on Peak prosperity and other sites have recommended anywhere between 2000 and 10K daily. Most Americans are deficent and so are most people w/ dark skin.Get your levels checked…if you are in doubt…. It is an oil soluble. People who have a lot of fat tissue will need more, because much of their supply is stored in fat and unavailable…

    1. The gummies are good. Ivermectin saves lives across all age groups at all stages of infection.

      1. Elderberry might be a cause of cytokine storm in this situation,thats one you might want to avoid in this case.

    1. That’s actually the recommended cut for ultimate Carnivore diet :) A nicely well marbled Rib-eye (I’m getting hungry)

      1. A nicely well marbled Rib-eye, you haven’t bought into that grass fed beef that they’re promoting yet, Huh! If I had the money, even my elk would be corn feed. Trekker Out

        1. The was a pecan nut farm down the road that threw out 20 tons each year, they let me pick them up and I fed them to my pigs. I’ll raise your corn fed beef with pecan milk fed 8 week old sucker pigs. The meat was so rich I could only eat about a desert spoon worth before I quit.

  2. I went looking for zinc the other day. Several different stores were entirely out, with no expectation of resupply. I spoke to one of the managers and he said they haven’t gotten zinc in for months. Curious, considering how zinc has been a recognized aspect of COVID treatment right from the beginning.

    1. Lauren, That’s interesting. It’s quite readily available online though (which is where I purchase mine). Early on during this Covid, it was sold out (along with so many other items!). But looks to be available once again.

      1. I am personally aquatinted with the “someone” who posted the Protocol on this site. That was over a month ago!!!

    2. I use for all my herbs and pills.
      I take no prescription drugs so I am pretty healthy.
      I’ve learned Puritan is world-wide and beats most drugstore prices….always beats Walgreens and sometimes walmart.

      1. And that statement says a LOT about our culture. “I take no prescription drugs so I am pretty healthy.

    3. Lauren,
      Yep, same in our area.
      Walmart, Meijer completely out of zinc and have been for some time.
      We have a limited stock.

      Off topic, but maybe not…

      Who does the hydrogen peroxide in the ears at the start of feeling a bit ‘off’?
      The very start of a cold/flu…vid?

      1. I have heard about the peroxide in your ear but don’t know the effects. I do know that you can nebulize h2o2 with a saline solution that will help kill any virus in your lungs. Look up Dr Mercola he swears by it. Super cheap treatment.

      2. Joe c,

        We do that at the first sign the eustachian tubes are getting plugged from congestion. The other thing is an onion poultice that works for breaking up phlegm in ears, sinuses and bronchial/lungs. Sure clears me up when I’m making them!

    4. Lauren…..If you have a Sams membership they have zinc in stock. I just ordered two large bottles and they also have Airborne in stock, which has a good dose of zinc in it.

      1. Chip/Lauren – I’ll vouch for VITACOST. Love them! IIRC Mrs. U also spoke highly of them. Super fast shipping and yes, even if one type or size is out of stock, you can still get the product in a different strength or size. Only one caution…. they will blow up your email 2-3 times a day, so give them a trap email account. But do check that account before a purchase as they are always giving out coupons.

    5. Lauren, Yes zinc seems to be available in “waves” . Availability comes and goes at stores here as well. I order supplements from several companies. (in NO order of preference) swansons, puritans pride, piping rock, and vitacost. I try to do a cost comparison of 3-5 needed items , being sure to compare strength and form/count.cold eze is my preferred form, and generic works as well as the name brand. I like that form because it is a lozenge, as long as it has a pleasant flavor, levels are low or normal.. when it has an off taste- unpleasant , levels are high enough. take it out and wait 3 days and try it again. sometimes need 6 in a month and sometimes only 3.. Other supplements are also fluctuating wildly with availabilites.

  3. I was reading the other day on melatonin and used too often can disrupt your natural melatonin. Just FYI.

      1. Vickie, I am not a doctor nor do i play one on tv. Mrs U is right, look it up! Put it in a duck duck go or start age search bar. form a question in How does Melatonin work? can i gt too much Melatonin? etc… Melatonin needs are highly individualized. If you think Melatonin may beneft you for some reason- and you are not on it- consider getting a Physician to check your labwork as a baseline before making changes ..

  4. Who here has experience with ear candles? We’ve been using them since the late 80’s with impressive results. There is no gray area here. People either swear by them, or they brand you a special kind of kook for even knowing of it.

    In addition to my anecdotal experience, they’ve also been purged from the US market; which is typically evidence that the product poses a threat to physician income streams. I have to order them from Germany now.

    Look into it and don’t be quick to judge. These tapered fire wonders will get at anything you have building up behind an ear drum or working it’s way into the Eustachian tube and throat.

    1. Tmac
      When my son was in his early teens used an earwax candle..

      I couldn’t believe the crap that came out.
      I, personally, have never tried.
      The $hit betwixt me ears, is all I got….?

  5. I have tried ivermectin twice, when feeling “under the weather”, and concerned it might be Covid. I took a quarter of a tube, of the type you can buy for horses at Tractor Supply for $5. No side effects, and I didn’t get sick afterwards.

    We keep a few tubes on hand just in case.

    It has also been highly rated as a Covid prophylactic, although I’ve never seen a recommended dosage or frequency.

    1. Bobcat,

      Here’s a link to the FCCC I-MASK+ protocol

      And also the EVMS Protocol MATH+:

      And Dr. Zelenko’s Hydroxychloroquine protocol:

      And a general recap referencing all of the above:

  6. You can buy Ivermectin at Farm and Fleet. It’s “for animal use only”. I’m not recommending that people should use it, just mentioning that it’s there.

  7. FWIW, I use Zicam swabs every day. I work as a long-term substitute teacher and before I leave the house, I apply the swabs. In addition, I also take selenium, along with D-3, tumeric, probiotics, C and other vitamins. So far, so good.

  8. About the survival rates at the end of this article. Are they for the noted population as a whole or for the people who have tested positive for covid 19??? Big difference between the two. Never see this stated clearly covid statistics

  9. Solely as a point of discussion, the horse tube of Ivermectin would treat a 1200 pound horse. Would that translate to 6 doses per tube for a 200 pound human?

  10. Paleo,

    Everything I’ve gathered on the subject says yes….pound for pound, human-livestock.

    The tubes I purchased have 250 lb increment lines on the plunger (my tubes are for 1250lb. horse)
    The plunger has 5 “notches” between each 250 lb. line (50 lb body weight per notch). Hope this helps…..

  11. There is an Ivermectin Group on MeWe for folks who want more info but there are a lot of people taking the animal version. I have used the liquid Ivermectin as a prophylactic. 1.5 cc/ml…I’m about 125 lbs..and I did not notice any effect…and I have sensitive digestion. For a larger person, 2 mls is considered a normal dose. You take it once a week. For active Covid, take it every other day until well. For Long Covid, for which it has shown to help those suffering long term effects, I do not know the dosage…. but my friend took it every day for a while during Covid and problems she had post infection and she had no side effects. She is well now and she has several serious health problems and really believes Ivermectin saved her. She could not get any medical help at all..was sent home to suffer and told to go to the hospital if she had trouble breathing. The emergency room had a 19 hour wait for a bed in her town but she was able to avoid that.

  12. For what it’s worth……..

    My trip to town this last week (yes…the one where I forgot my teeth) was for a regularly scheduled visit with my Nurse Practitioner. I brought up the debate on Ivermectin, asking if she would be against writing me a prescription as a prophylactic. She responded by saying her professional organization (an advisory organization for nurse practitioners) had issued guidelines recommending it’s members not to write those, but….went on to tell me, if I would make a separate appointment with her supervisory physician (a D.O.), that he had been doing those prescriptions.

    I passed, but thought I’d share the exchange.

  13. I’ve been going through supplement and medical supplies, to inventory and replenish while the gettin’s good. After watching Dr. Ryan Cole’s video from another of Ken’s articles, I decided it might be a good idea to have more iv3rmect1n on hand, as a prophylactic if nothing else. Was able to find paste at TSC, 1.87% concentration. Does anyone know if the formula for mg/kg given for the tablets is equally applicable for the paste? How exact does the dosage have to be? Tube has markings in 250lb. increments. Outside my comfort area – I’m more a plant/herb girl. Thanks for any insight!

    1. Farmgirl, And note that dosage per weight varies per species. What works for horses is either double or half of what works for pigs. I have to look it up every time. There may be some studies out there but will take some searching. For pour-on for cattle here is info .. .. Here is the Safety Data Sheet. .. .. .. It is available as a head-lice and rosacea treatment so that will give good info re safe topical exposure.

    2. Farmgirl,

      “Self Sufficient Momma” on you tube has several posts on ivermectin paste and doses.
      I got my paste at TSC (Durvet brand). If you’ll notice, there are 5 notches in the plunger stem between each 250lb line, effectively a 50lb body weight dose for each notch…..I figure 4 notches for my 200lb body weight.

    3. Farmgirl ,,,,,,,i have worked with ivermection for over 35years , both on humans when out on volunteer med mission and with live stock when ranching ,have used pill ,pore on and horse paste on humans ,,human and cattle are same dose rate based on weight with pore on or paste ,i still have paper work from W H O that came with ivermection out in the field ,,it has a residual effect for up to 45 days but as a prophylactic look at 3 to 4 weeks between use ,a PDR has like 4 pages about it’s use on label ,side effects from use that I know about …head ache with over use ,in the clinics we would get splashed. And sometimes would have to put it on to get kids to let us treat them ,
      Am told that the protocol for c19 is dubble dose on day one and single dose on day 3 and 5. That is what I would do ,remember I can’t tell you how you what to do ,just what what I would do

      1. OH Was kinda hopin’ you’d chime in! :-) So horse paste is same dose per weight as people? That’s my primary uncertainty. Absolutely understand – my body, my responsibility. Appreciate you sharing your experiences.

    4. Here’s what I recommend,

      Just ask your doctor if he or she will give you a prescription to have Ivermectin on hand, just in case. Depending on your doc, it may be a simple as that. This way you will have the exact right product and dosage. No worries or concerns about other ways to get around it…

      Mrs.J has a regular dr. appointment this week. We’re going to try this approach and see what happens.

      If that fails, well, to each their own. (This is not medical advice.)

  14. Dennis and Anony Mee, Thank you so much for the info. I copied and pasted to save. Don’t want to have stuff I’m uncertain of using when we need it. I’ll check out the youtube posts – kinda surprised if they haven’t been removed.
