Women regularly taking multivitamins, probiotics, omega-3, or vitamin D supplements are less likely to contract the coronavirus infection, a new study says.

Contrary to a common belief, the latest study published by BMJ Nutrition Prevention and Health Monday has found no effect of vitamin C, garlic, or zinc on reducing the risk of getting infected with the virus.

“In women, we observed a modest but significant association between use of probiotics, omega-3 fatty acid, multivitamin or vitamin D supplements and lower risk of testing positive for SARS-CoV-2,” said the researchers of the study.

The study “found no clear benefits for men.” EFE
