Eating right plays a major role in keeping well, too. One cannot avoid a risk of being affected by the virus, but the right diet is said to support the immune system, so that it is ready to take on anything. Here are a few immune boosting-remedies to load up on…
‘Have enough proteins and antioxidants’
There are several nutrients that you can include in your eating plan and protein ranks high among them at this time. Affirms dietician Sheela Tanna, “Most Mumbaikars are avoiding non-veg because of Corona virus scare and heat. Asian vegetarian food lacks in proteins, which play the role of immunity booster and unfortunately are ignored, too. Every meal must include a protein like dals, pulses (sprouted), paneer, curd, nuts and seeds.”
Spices that play an anti-bacterial role
The culinary cabinet has a variety of spices that have significant antibacterial and anti-fungal advantages — such as ginger, garlic, cloves, cinnamon, turmeric and cumin, says clinical dietician Zainab Gulamhusein.
