“Let food be thy medicine.” Hippocrates
Healthy bodies with strong immune systems, boosted by healthy food, good sleep and exercise is our first line of defence against Covid-19. So, what do we need to eat to support our immune systems against this virus and recover more quickly if we do get sick? Here are some tips.
NATURAL IMMUNE-SYSTEM BOOSTERS FOR COVID-19
Vitamin C and D, Selenium and Zinc are key to supporting your immune system to fight the new Coronavirus. And they are available in all kinds of foods (and sunlight!)
EAT A BALANCED AND DIVERSE ALKALINE DIET
Bacteria and viruses thrive in an acid environment. Try to eat the right balance of foods for a slightly alkaline level of fluids in your body. This mainly means eating more vegetables.
STRENGTHEN YOUR GUT INTESTIFLORA (microbes in your intestines)
Healthy gut flora promotes the production of antibodies in the body, boosting immune cells. Your intestinal immune system contains more immune cells than any other organ, and so a healthy gut reduces the likelihood and duration of respiratory infections like Covid-19.
Viruses love sugar – you don’t need sugar at all so try to eat much less (or none)
DRINK NATURAL ANTI-BIOTIC & ANTI-VIRAL TEAS
