The discovery of foodstuffs that may speed up recovery from Corona


British scientists have put together a list of foodstuffs that they believe will speed up the recovery process, after they discovered how immune nutrition affects the rehabilitation of people with Corona disease.

According to BMJ Nutrition, Prevention and Health, researchers Emma Derbyshire and Joan Delange are studying the role of nutrition in boosting immunity. Therefore, they studied and analyzed scientific studies devoted to nutritional substances and supplements, which help in rehabilitation after “Covid-19”. The researchers focused their attention on the effect of therapeutic feeding on the immune system of people over 65 years of age

As is well known, the immune system consists of four components: T lymphocytes; B lymphocytes; And the supplement system and phagocytes. All of these components protect the body from pathogenic infections and act as a barrier against viruses and bacteria entering the body.

There is innate immunity and acquired immunity, and with age their capacity decreases, and one of the causes of “immune aging” is a lack of nutrients. Therefore, the elderly have to compensate for this deficiency through special immune feeding. This becomes necessary and important in the rehabilitation phase after serious diseases such as Corona.

The researchers say, “There is sufficient evidence that malnutrition and lack of proteins, vitamins and minerals lead to a decrease in the immune system’s ability to perform its function at the required level.” Therefore, fruits, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and probiotics help to enhance them and play an important role in resisting viruses and disease infection.

Based on that, the two scientists suggest that people who have had Corona eat foods rich in vitamin C, vitamin D and zinc. This is because vitamin C strengthens the epithelium of the respiratory system, which limits the incursion of pathogens and prevents them from reaching the lower parts of the system. This, according to expert opinion, prevents pneumonia. As for vitamin D, it is a powerful immune regulator, as it is found on the surface of some immune cells – B and T lymphocytes, macrophages and monocytes – receptors for vitamin D. Therefore, it plays a protective role in all respiratory infections. Zinc is an important element for health and stimulates the functions of the immune system.

The researchers suggest eating the following items rich in vitamin C, such as broccoli, citrus fruits and rich in zinc, such as crab, hemp, beans and boiled eggs, as well as dietary supplements rich in vitamin D at 50 micrograms per day.

The results of the study showed that adherence to this diet shortens the rehabilitation period and speeds up full recovery from “Covid-19”.

The researchers point out that these recommendations are for people who do not suffer from chronic diseases such as diabetes, pulmonary embolism, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Therefore, those who suffer from chronic diseases should consult a doctor before committing to them, “Novosti”.
