Best Foods to Boost Your Immunity and Keep COVID-19 At Bay

Best Foods to Boost Your Immunity and Keep COVID-19 At Bay
By Barbara Ross

TP 202004 NUTRITION 012020 has so far been quite a dark phase for the world at large. COVID-19 has literally wreaked havoc across many countries and still continues to do so. While the BEST way to combat this pandemic, which does not have a counter vaccine yet, is to simply distance yourself socially and stay away from people in general, you can also work on your immunity to keep this disease or any other disease at bay.

 

The corona virus is not exactly air borne, which means that it does not spread directly through the air. According to the WHO, it spreads mainly through droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when someone with the virus coughs or sneezes. This is precisely why you stand less risk of contracting the disease if you stay indoors and away from people.

 

So let鈥檚 promise each other to stay indoors and not make the situation any worse than it already is.

 

While we鈥檙e at it, here are a few foods that we could include in our daily diet to boost our immunity and keep ourselves safe.

Citrus Fruits

鏌戞绫绘按鏋

TP 202004 NUTRITION 03Since grade school, we鈥檝e been learning that oranges contain vitamin C, and rightly so. Oranges are indeed quite a powerful source of vitamin C, which is known to help increase the production of white blood cells and, in turn, improve our immunity. That鈥檚 why people often turn to citrus fruits like tangerines, lemons, and oranges right after they鈥檝e recovered from a cold. Citrus fruits in general, including grapefruit, limes etc., are rich in vitamin C.

Watermelon

TP 202004 NUTRITION 04Watermelon is another powerhouse of immunity containing not only vitamin C, but also potassium, glutathione and vitamin B6, all of which play an important role in improving the immune system. Being that it is already quite delicious on its own, including it in your diet wouldn鈥檛 be a problem at all. You can slice it up or make a smoothie, or even include it in your salad. Plus, it only has about 80 calories!

Ginger

TP 202004 NUTRITION 05Not the most delicious of foods, ginger is also highly sought after following a cold or fever, just as oranges are. It has anti-inflammatory properties which help relieve a sore throat or other inflammatory issues. It can also help reduce nausea and aid digestion. If you have a history of high cholesterol, ginger is something that can help with that, too.

Yogurt

TP 202004 NUTRITION 06Yogurt, as we all know, is a good source of probiotics, and these probiotics help in reducing the severity and duration of issues like a cold. On top of that, it also serves as a general immunity boosting food as it contains vitamin D, vitamin B12 (riboflavin) and vitamin B2, all of which contribute towards the proper functioning of the immune system.

Spinach

TP 202004 NUTRITION 07Spinach has always been right at the top of the superfoods table with its high content of essential nutrients like folate, vitamin C, vitamin A, fibre, iron and magnesium. It is also a great source of trace minerals that your body needs, and all of these properties together not only help in boosting immunity but also in DNA repair and cell division. Popeye wouldn鈥檛 get all that strength from nothing, you know.
