You no catch Corona, so what,
You are not a suspect, so what,
You don’t have any contact with Corona Patient, so what.
While we are practicing routine personal hygiene/Hand washing, physical distancing and all the preventive measures there is, there is a need to also boost our immune system.
From my research on Corona, having a high immune system can reduce the risk of rapid spread of the virus in your system, thus the stronger your immune system, the greater your chance of survival if you are infected.
One of the reasons there is increasing number of COVID’19 death in Italy, is because the nation is the second oldest population worldwide, with low immune system that comes with aging amongst other factors.
Back to our gist, here are some foods that can boost your immune system;
Citrus Fruit: a great source of Vitamin C eg grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, limes, clementines; Broccoli, Garlic, Ginger, Spinach, Yogurt, Almonds, Red bell peppers.
Zinc food source like oysters, baked beans, cashews, raisin bran, chickpeas, etc
While most of us will be home, left with little or no job/activity to engage in, here is the best time to invest in personal development.
