. 5 Foods to Help Fight Coronavirus
A phrase that’s been tossed around for a few years is, “You are what you eat.” Those 5 words are a lead-in to the topic of 5 foods to help us combat coronavirus. Foods beneficial for older people, those with compromised immune systems, and caretakers. So, if your immune system is compromised, and seek remedies or you simply want to gain more insights into the foods God has given us to boost the immune system, read on. Let’s look at nitric oxide against the coronavirus.
What is Nitric Oxide?
Nitric oxide is an unstable molecule produced by nearly every cell in the body. It is the most crucial molecule for healthy blood vessels! In a 2005 study on the usefulness of nitric oxide against the SARS coronavirus, D Kwon noted, “nitric oxide disrupts the virus’ ability to grow.” Meaning, it hampers its effort to take over the body.
Top 5 Nitric Oxide Foods
Nitric oxide is commonly produced through exercise, but there are foods available to aid in this effort, too. Try the top 5 sources of plant-based nitric oxide rich foods.
- Beetroot Juice
Beets are the best when it comes to raising nitric oxide levels. One study indicated the level of nitrates increased by 20% in less than an hour!
This century old spice commonly used to treat colds can boost nitric oxide levels up to 40% in an hour.
- Leafy Greens
Arugula, broccoli, cabbage, celery, kale, spinach are packed with nitrates. A regular diet of green veggies will maintain a high nitric oxide level in the body.
- Citrus Fruits
Vitamin C rich foods such as oranges, lemons, limes and grapefruit are excellent sources. Vitamin C increases nitric oxide levels by changing the nitrate in food to nitric oxide.
- Nuts and Seeds
Almonds, cashews, walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds contain a type of amino acid that aids in the production of nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide must be constantly replenished. So, it’s up to us to feed our families and ourselves the proper foods to sustain a productive life. In turn our body that is “fearfully and wonderfully made” will rally in the fight against any coronavirus.
