Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19): Some experts warn that senega may interfere with the body's response against COVID-19. There is no strong data to support this warning. But there is also no good data to support using senega for COVID-19. Follow healthy lifestyle choices and proven prevention methods instead.
