My Journey to Recovery: COVID -19 Vitamins/Vitamins against COVID - 19

After contracting COVID-19 last year, I had enough and made changes by religiously paying attention and listening to my doctor’s advice on how to take care of my immune system and keep it at its optimum so as to possibly prevent contracting the said virus a second time. Without a hint of a doubt, during times like this, it is of great importance that we take care of our health in order to protect not just ourselves, but also the people that we love. By doing so, small changes that we do for our health impacts the overall well-being of others and towards the greater good of society by helping to mitigate the spread of the virus. 

Hence, I’d like to share vitamins that were prescribed to me when I had contracted COVID-19. I never really had known the importance of taking vitamin C not until I had been prescribed hahaha. Kidding aside, here is the list of vitamins that I took and still am currently taking along with the respective links on where you could get one. Although, it is still important to remember to always always consult your physician before taking any form of supplements or vitamins, this is just “my” personal list that may or may not be suitable for the general public.

1. Vitamin C

RANI C Vitamin C Sodium Ascorbate (P400.00) - 

For vitamin C, RANI C Vitamin C Sodium Ascorbate is my go for this is the only vitamin C that did not trigger my acidity. What I usually do is I take a capsule of RANI C twice a day so as to have a 1000 mg of vitamin C to keep my day going. Nevertheless, I have come to like this brand primarily because it does not aggravate my acidity. If you’re someone like me perhaps you’d be happy to try this one out.

2. Zinc

Puritan’s Pride Zinc 25 mg (P769.00) - 

GNC Zinc 50 mg (P650.00) - 

As you all know, puritan’s pride has been my go to after trying the effectiveness of their collagen supplement, this brand has truly gained my trust. I was advised by my doctor to take at least 50 mg of zinc a day. But if you are on a budget, GNC Zing that is already 50 mg might be the best option.

3. Vitamin D3

Puritan’s Pride Sunvite Vitamin D3 (P399.00) - 

Another important vitamin that you should not forget is Vitamin D. Yet again, I opted for Puritan’s pride for I am surely convinced of their products' effectiveness. But still it is safe and okay to opt for other affordable and suitable brands out there if you’d like. This is just my preferred brand. I take vitamin D once a day.

Luminously winning! Sure White with Luminous White Glutathione

We have another contender that might be up for grabs this year! Thanks to all your support and recommendations, I finally found another product that not only is similar to our Kamukha’s choice last year, but also compares equally with most of my favorites. This well requested whitening supplement is none other than Luminous White Glutathione! An FDA free form glutathione that is rightly formulated to brighten your skin complexion. Because of your recommendations I did not even spare a second and grabbed a hold of this product to try one for myself and share my honest review about it. 

Core Strengths and Active Ingredients

Right off the bat, the packaging of this product clearly states upfront all the necessary details to guide you about the product’s formulation, and recommendation. It’s nothing fancy out of the box. But examining closely, the formulation I think is where Luminous White Glutathione shines the most. Per capsule you’ll be getting 1,000 mg of the six (6) active ingredients that this product have, namely:

  • L- glutamic acid - 200 mg

  • Glycine - 200 mg

  • L- cysteine - 200 mg

  • Nac (N-Acetyl Cysteine) - 200 mg

  • Vitamin C - 100 mg

  • Alpha lipoic acid - 100 mg

All of which claims to work together potently to help with skin brightening, and will work as a  powerful antioxidant. If you’d ask me, I think it’s pretty clever that they decided to make this product as a free form glutathione, it is, as other articles suggest, more effective and potent as compared with other forms of glutathione supplement. 


Most important of all, you should never forget these three (3) letter words that you should always be asking yourself - Need, Budget, and Form. If you are looking for a need to better improve your skin complexion and also skin texture, this I think is worth the try. For an original price of P795.00 that usually goes on sale for P695.00 on shopee, you’ll be getting 60 capsules worth of supplements. It’s honestly not that bad for the price, there are other brands that might charge you for more with as little glutathione content as compared to Luminous White’s.

As for the formulation, I think you wouldn’t think twice in not wanting to try this out, Luminous White Glutathione is a free form glutathione that is also formulated with a booster L-glutathione. And with a price that is less than P1,000.00, I don't think you wouldn’t want to miss out and give this a shot.
