7 things that can help to boost your immune system during the coronavirus outbreak, and 6 that won’t

  • Despite the constant misinformation on how to prevent the coronavirus, there’s no miracle cure, food, or supplement that can cure or prevent COVID-19 or other diseases. The Remdesivir is now being tested in many Covid-19 clinical trials that have been set up at breakneck speed.

  • Sleeping is crucial for your body’s ability to recover and defend itself. Getting plenty of sleep is your best bet to stay healthy, whether there’s an outbreak or not. Boost your immune system.

  • The best way to protect yourself is simple healthy habits like sleeping enough, exercising, eating well, and finding good ways to reduce stress.

  • No single food can help protect you.

  • If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Drinking too much can make you feel worse and more vulnerable to illness.

  • Please Stop Smoking NOW!!! People who smoke are at higher risk of being infected with the coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • Please wash your hands with soap and warm water properly!

  • Using masks. Experts devise do-it-yourself face masks to help people battle coronavirus.  You need to wear a mask now!!

  • Trying to manage stress — even during anxious and uncertain circumstances — is one of the most important ways to stay healthy.

  • No amount of citrus fruit will prevent illness if you’re exposed to the coronavirus. “If you’re in contact with coronavirus, it doesn’t matter how many oranges you eat, you’re going to get it,” Dr. Caroline Apovian, director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at Boston Medical Center, previously told Business Insider.

  • Avoiding sugar and salt won’t boost your immune system. A lot of Sugar isn’t great for you but won’t give you coronavirus.

  • Massive doses of vitamins ( A, D, E, K) are unhelpful and can be potentially dangerous. A multi-vitamin  (C, B) won’t hurt, but 100+ times the recommended dose is definitely not healthy.

  • Getting enough vitamin D and Omega 3 Fatty Acids is a very good idea now. Sunshine is a good natural source of vitamin D, but in winter and spring, months make sure you take a supplement.

  • Exercise can boost your mood as well as keep you healthy. Getting up and moving in nature can help keep you healthy and happy.

  • Try Traditional herbal medicine. Native Americans used Echinacea purpurea to treat many ailments, including wounds, burns, insect bites, toothaches, throat infections, pain, cough, stomach cramps, and snake bites.[15]
