The most important thing to do in order not to catch the COVID-19 virus will be to keep the immunity strong after complying with the rules of social distance and mask use. Our biggest fighters for keeping immunity strong after adequate sleep and stress management are our food.
First of all, there is no therapeutic nutritional supplement or food for the COVID-19 virus, but it is necessary to choose protective and immune system-supporting foods to reduce the risk of catching viral infections. In order to prevent inflammation in the body, it is recommended to consume at least 5-7 servings of vegetables with flavonoid stores and 2-3 servings of fruits per day. In addition, especially in this period, the consumption of foods such as onions, apples, tomatoes, oranges, hazelnuts, strawberries, parsley, celery, chamomile and turmeric should be given importance.

Supplementary foods:

  • Vitamin C and its sources: foods such as green pepper, parsley, cress, arugula, cauliflower, spinach, orange, kiwi, lemon, tangerine, rosehip, pineapple, mango
  • Vitamin A and its sources: eggs, milk, fish, sweet potatoes, oranges, carrots, yellow, orange and green peppers such as apricots, green vegetables and fruits such as cabbage, spinach, broccoli.
  • Zinc and its sources for supporting cells in viral infections: animal-derived foods such as red meat and shellfish and liver, foods such as pumpkin seeds
