Abstract

Introduction: COVID-19 is a disease caused by infection with a recent type of coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. The positive cases of COVID-19 have been increasing, particularly in the West Nusa Tenggara region, Indonesia. COVID-19 is a self-limiting disease and can be overcome by the innate immune system of an otherwise healthy patient. Stamina is related to strength, and so is linked in many traditions to the immune response; Therefore, a method to increase immunity can be linked-to maintaining stamina. Sumbawa honey is a type of honey that is tremendously popular both locally within the island of Sumbawa and internationally, for its use as a stamina enhancer.  

Objective: This study examined the potential of Sumbawa honey as a tonic for improving stamina.       

Methods: This research was an experimental model with the natatory exhaustion method. The parameter measured was the fatigue time of the test animals. The greater the difference in fatigue time, the higher the tonic effect produced.     

Results: The results of the one-way ANOVA test display significant differences in all groups (p < 0.05). Sumbawa honey at a dose of 75g/70kgBW with a positive control group provided a significant difference in value (p = 0.017). It is expected that Sumbawa honey can be an alternative treatment, a traditional therapy, to help maintain a healthy body, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.       

Conclusion: Sumbawa honey has significant activity as a tonicum and the optimal dose of Sumbawa honey possessing an effect as a tonic is 75g/kgBW applied once a day.
