The Covid-19 pandemic has devastating effect on human life, society and economy although the full impact remains to be revealed. Vision Forum is engaged in an international and interdisciplinary project to dampen the impact of the disease. The endeavour is now involving partners in Sweden (Karolinska institutet and Prima) and in France (Hôpital universitaire la Pitié-Salpêtrière and ISBA) and we are currently negotiating with partners in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Finland and Denmark to expand the project in those countries.
The project brings together research in epidemiology and other fields such as biochemistry and psychiatry in order to see how simple changes in diet along with certain food supplements can boost the body’s natural immune system. Current research indicates that intake of certain prebiotic and probiotic substances can make humans more resistant to inflammation and therefore also to the onset of viruses such as Covid-19. In a situation where the spread of the pandemic is waning in many parts of Europe such measures are seen as essential to prevent another peak.
