Vegan and lifestyle blogger Tracy Kiss, from Buckinghamshire in England, is taking a shot of her semen smoothie every day in the hope that it will boost her immune system and fight off Covid-19, Mirror reports.

“I found a free and vegan-friendly alternative method to boost the body's immune system,” Tracy said.

“It isn't for everyone, but it is packed full of vitamins and I haven't had a cold or flu ever since drinking it in 2017 – I also put it on my face to clear up my skin.

“It is best to consume semen as close to production as possible to get the most nutrients and benefits.

“But I often store it in the freezer in an ice cube tray as my partner, who doesn’t wish to be named, and I are in a long-distance relationship.

“The quantity depends on how hydrated my boyfriend is on the day.”

Tracy goes onto say that if you don’t have a male partner you can ask another healthy male to supply you.

"The smoothies aren't any different to drinking honey and lemon water when you have a sore throat.

"It is just another natural remedy but completely free – you don't have to have a partner, you could just ask a male friend who is healthy.

"Most people think I am joking because it seems too good to be true that I am being so open about a 'taboo' subject but I am not.”

The 32-year-old is adamant that it will work, even though there’s no medical evidence to prove that her smoothie is effective, The Sun reports.

“There are hundreds of myths out there about how to protect yourself against Covid-19. Most of them are exactly that – myths,” said Dr Sarah Jarvis, a general practitioner at Shepherd's Bush Hospital in London.

“The idea of drinking semen doesn’t have the slightest nugget of science behind it and is frankly extremely worrying.”

To avoid contracting the virus, The World Health Organisation (WHO) urges everyone to wash their hands regularly and thoroughly or to use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser. In addition, people must maintain social distancing.
