This Supplement Slashes COVID Death Rate by 93%, Why isn't this reported by the media?

Melatonin Greatly Reduces Risk of Dying From COVID-19

I read this from Dr. Mercola's newsletter this morning and felt I should share this with my readers. I've been using melatonin for over a year to help improve my deep sleep. Melatonin also reduces risk of death for COVID patients by helping to balance and calm the immune system, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.

It has also been shown to be beneficial for prevention and improvement of cancer and autoimmune conditions such as type 1 diabetes. And it has proven to reduce the risk of testing positive for COVID-19.

Melatonin Benefits, From The Article:
-Boosts immune function
-Helps recharge glutathione (and glutathione deficiency has been linked to COVID-19 severity)
-May improve the treatment of certain bacterial diseases, including tuberculosis
-Helps regulate gene expression via a series of enzymes

Since Dr. Mercola's webpages are only available for 48 hours, I'm including a link to the PDF version of his article page below.
