However, various studies are reporting regarding the potential of bioactives against the transmission of COVID-19 have been uploaded as preprints with less opportunity to revise content for benefit and impact. The current review discusses current stylish substantiation and information behind the part of food ingredients and bioactive composites in supporting vulnerable functions in humans and creatures, specifically in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infection. Currently, some substantiation from clinical trials and randomized population has further suggested that vitamin D situations are likely to be linked with COVID-19 transmission and inflexibility. Multitudinous theoretical studies have refocused to polyphenols and particularly flavonoids as implicit impediments of covid19 infection. There's also inconclusive substantiation to support the unborn use of β-glucan to address COVID-19 due in part to variability in vulnerable response growing from diversity in branch of polysaccharide and length of chain for the absence of a standardized extraction method and different sources. To confirm the promising outcomes and hypothesis for bioactive composites, further randomized and controlled clinical studies are demanded. In addition, the results of such studies had a profound effect over the food supplements and nutraceuticals prospects as potential prophylaxis which was against the virus and serve to help consumers to cover themselves during the post-lockdown recovery period.
