Aarti Life Science has recently launched an orange-flavored chewable tablet form under the brand name Yetocee and Yetocee D3 that promises to strengthen one’s immunity by regulating three essential nutrients – Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, and Zinc in the doses recommended by doctors to fight Covid-19.
Yetocee is so much more than just a regular immunity supplement dose. It provides not only an immunity boost but also sustenance and acts as a preventive for many diseases, including Covid-19.
Importance of immunity
Studies indicate that a person infected by the SARS-Cov-2 virus can develop resistance to the virus for an extended time if one has a well developed immune system. Such individuals – even in severe cases – can stay resistant for up to 6 months or more – the subject, of course, to individual biological makeup and co-morbidity conditions, making them more susceptible and changing the window of protection.
Recent Covid-related research has also shown that patients recovering from Covid can sustain their immunity. Research from the Huazhong University of Science and Technology Wuhan, China, for instance, shows that patients who have recovered from Covid have ‘sustained humoral immunity’ which means their antibody levels remain high for more than six months. Another research published in the Cell Journal on 11 August 2020 concluded that infected individuals ‘exhibited robust memory T-cell responses months after infection, even in the absence of detectable circulating antibodies specific for Sars-CoV-2’ which means that the antibodies to fight SARS need not necessarily be specific to the virus. In Seattle Fishing Boat Case, 122 people on a fishing boat on a voyage of 18 days, the virus-infected 104 crew members. Of those spared, three members of the crew had likely recovered from a previous disease suggesting that the neutralizing antibodies for other diseases can fight Covid. All this boils down to three essential facts – high antibody levels (immunity) can help fight Covid; antibodies need not be SARS-Cov-2 specific. Even the uninfected can resist the virus with sufficient immunity. A robust immune system is, therefore, definitely a better bet for protection against Covid.
Picking up on the possibility of developing immunological resistance to the SARS-Cov-2 virus, Aarti Life Science investigated the possibility of developing a dietary supplement that could provide critical nutrients to strengthen immunity.
The two most essential micronutrients for immunity are Vitamins C and D, and the third is Zinc. Vitamin D regulates the immune-related genes, while Vitamin C forms reactive oxygen species – or oxygen radicals – that help fight pathogens.
Zinc is an essential mineral for cell function – the division and growth of cells. It helps in the production of white blood cells that are essential to fight infection. It also helps reduce inflammation, which is the cause of some of the most severe symptoms of Covid. According to NCBI, “Administration of Zn supplement has a potential to enhance antiviral immunity, both innate and humoral, and to restore depleted immune cell function or to improve normal immune cell function, in particular in immunocompromised or elderly patients.”
These nutrients have also been recommended by the doctors treating infected patients and the government for management of Covid patients right from Stage 1 – positive but asymptomatic to Stage 3 – Pneumonia with respiratory failure. The recommended doses are considerably higher than the prescribed RDA for these nutrients.
“Our consumer focused wing at Aarti Life Science, is busy providing timely solutions to help improve immunity and protection against diseases. We believe that vitamins should be in the proper portions and they should be affordable for all to buy. This is an integral part of our core value system. At Aarti Life Science, we develop healthcare products that adhere to socially responsible norms, ensure quality, and are compliant with the requirements of the Indian Pharmacopoeia Commission,” Savla added.
Their recent offering Yetocee – a chewable supplement – reflects their vision to be a pioneer in the Indian market by combining all immunity building supplements in a tasty, chewable form and has already attracted many as low as Rs 6 per tablet.
The double-action combination of Vitamin C and Zinc helps in the absorption of iron from one’s diet while zinc controls the immune system. Zinc has the added benefit of treating common cold and healing of wounds. A daily dose of vitamin D will keep one’s bones and heart-healthy. It also helps lower one’s blood pressure. Yetocee contains doses that are safe to consume daily, and a regular intake of these supplements can ward off disaster.
Yetocee contains 500 mg of Vitamin C and 5 mg of Zinc, while the all-new Yetocee D3 contains the additional benefits of 400 IU of Vitamin D3.
