Spanish nutritionist Alejandro Canovas and head of the Spanish Society of Pulmonology and Thoracic Surgery (SEPAR) Eusebi Chiner named products that help protect the lungs from coronavirus in an interview with La Vanguardia.
According to Canovas, eggs, whole rice, blue fish and walnuts can help strengthen the respiratory system. According to Chiner, when the lung condition worsens, the body’s need for protein increases. And in particular, eggs contain fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, as well as high-quality proteins.
In addition, tomatoes, whole dairy products and water have a positive effect on lung conditions. In particular, tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C, which can help prevent breathing problems as an antioxidant.
According to the pulmonologist Eusebi Chiner, the consequences of most cases of lung damage due to the virus can be minimized if you adhere to a healthy lifestyle. In addition to proper nutrition, one should observe a sleep pattern and practice physical activity, he stressed.
Earlier, dietitian Vera Sharoshkina called foods that are useful in an epidemic of coronavirus. In her opinion, they are yogurt, kombucha, herbs and cod liver.
