JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The Indonesian government continues to roll out its COVID-19 vaccination program. Even though people have been vaccinated, they are still encouraged to implement health protocols and maintain health.

"It is very important to maintain good health during this vaccination period to keep our body in excellent condition to prevent from various viruses. We strongly encourage people to maintain their body health both before and after the COVID-19 vaccination," said dr. Helmin Agustina Silalahi, Medical Manager of the Consumer Health Division at PT Kalbe Farma in a press release on Wednesday.

The COVID-19 vaccination is given to help protect the body from the coronavirus. Although vaccines can build immunity, maintaining health with herbal vitamins is also necessary to strengthen immunity, as reported by Antara.

Here are some tips for maintaining a healthy body:

1. Maintain Immunity to Repel Viruses

The immune system is important to be maintained in order to block the viruses that enters the body. This is important to pay attention to both before vaccination and after vaccination. Maintaining immunity is easiest by adopting a healthy lifestyle. These include fulfilling a balanced nutritional intake, regular exercise, coping with stress properly, and getting adequate rest.

2. Follow the Health Protocols

In addition to maintaining body immunity, health protocols are just as important. This will further protect us from COVID-19. Washing hands, wearing masks, and keeping distance are health protocols that we must always apply.

3. Take Vitamins as Needed

In addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle, taking vitamins or supplements can also help maintain endurance or immunity as needed. Choose supplements that contain natural ingredients and have properties to block viruses. One of them is herbal vitamins which are able to maintain health and endurance, and boost stamina so that it can restore fitness and energy faster.

One of the vitamins that Kalbe Farma produces is H2 Cordyceps Militaris, a herbal vitamin containing Cordyceps Militaris mushroom extract.

These mushrooms have active compounds, such as cordycepin and adenosine which are used to help maintain a healthy body, keep stamina stable, and increase energy levels in the body.

Cordycepin extract contains polysaccharides as antioxidants in the body and helps increase oxygen supply to the cardiopulmonary system while maintaining endurance.

Based on a study made by Professor Widodo, S.Si., M.Si., Pd.D.Med.Sc., a Professor of Biology at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of Universitas Brawijaya, the cordyceps militaris mushroom, as one of the raw materials for traditional medicine, has the potential to act as an antidote to virus attacks inside the body.

"The content of two active compounds, adenosine and cordycepin in the cordyceps militaris mushroom has a structure similar to that of the viral drug Galidesivir, which is an antiviral which is potentially suitable for the COVID-19 virus," he said.
