Background: The novel severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was spreading rapidly in 2020, and researchers and medical professionals were working around the clock to develop effective host-directed treatments and prevent it from causing the coronavirus illness 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
Methods: This was done in an effort to prevent the novel severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 from causing COVID-19. In 1989, Dr. Stephen combined the terms nutrition and pharmaceutical to create the phrase "nutraceutical," which was described as a dietary component or nutrient that, in addition to its nutritional value, also has health benefits, such as those that promote health and fight disease.
Results: The nutraceuticals are helpful for both preventing and treating COVID-19; therefore, they serve a dual purpose. COVID-19 is caused by the same virus that causes SARS-CoV-2, which is a severe acute respiratory syndrome. The signs and symptoms of COVID can vary, but they frequently include fever, coughing, headaches, exhaustion, problems breathing, and a loss of taste and smell.
Conclusions: To treat and prevent the symptoms of the Corona virus, nutraceuticals like minerals, antioxidants, dietary fibers, and various vitamins are used.
