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.
They note that eggs, whole rice, blue fish and walnuts can help strengthen the respiratory system. 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. 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.
In addition to proper nutrition, one should observe a sleep pattern and practice physical activity.
