As a nutritionist and wellness coach, I get so many queries regarding immunity boosters daily. A lot of sales are going on in all areas due to COVID and people who don’t know anything about diet or local food and nutrition is spreading all wrong news about immunity. Yesterday, I had an interview regarding this topic in a leading newspaper.
The food movements like eat right movement promoted by FSSAI and all local food with different varieties and colors are good. There is no superfood or any immunity booster that can prevent COVID. Maybe a balanced diet that includes the local food from all food groups can help.
A man-made virus spread for destroying humanity is reflecting people to find the truth and the myth which was spreading to mask the truth against diet and nutrition science. In every nutrition program we can find stalls with thousands of local food items as superfood from coconut to jackfruit which were available in almost all households in Kerala. However, it has some effects if you include it in a balanced diet. And mind or emotions and mental health issues are more now so stay at peace with what you have than believing these. People have the right to know the truth and they decide what is the best and your life is your choice. This is just derived from the discussion with thought leaders and dietitians around the globe and from my own experience in the last 17 years as a nutritionist practicing in India and believing in the power of nature and natural food and meditation to heal!.
Go for a balanced diet plan that suits you and your family with available food source and income or personal preferences.
