You may be running around pharmacies to look for face mask, hand sanitizer and disinfectant, and they are all out of stock. With the recent outbreak of Wuhan virus (COVID-19), Singapore raised DORSCON level from Yellow to Orange. The public is getting more worried as there were more and more cases reported which were locally transmitted.
Keep calm and stay strong
Your body’s immune system is your first line of defence, like a surveillance system that operates 24 hours a day, constantly monitoring and protecting you. A healthy immune system is able to quickly detect and defeat potential cold, flu or upper respiratory tract infection causing pathogens such as bacteria or viruses. An unhealthy immune system is not able to fight off these pathogens, leaving you and your family more vulnerable to infections. With the recent coronavirus outbreak, besides looking for external protection, it is important to take precautions from within by enhancing your immunity.
Good nutrition is essential to a strong immune system, which offers protection from seasonal illness such as colds, flu and mild upper respiratory tract infections caused by virus and bacteria. Protect yourself against infection and boost your immunity by including these nutrients in your diet.
Garlic has been used for centuries as food ingredient and medicine. Studies have shown that raw garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties. When intruders like bacteria or viruses invade our body, the immune system can react fast and get rid of them quickly. This, in turn, can help relieve and improve the resistance to common cold, flu and other infections.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the body’s cells against reactive oxygen species that are generated by immune cells to kill pathogens. It is an important component of both innate and adaptive immunity, aiding in immune cell production in response to invading pathogens.
Medicinal mushrooms have a long traditional use in Chinese medicine to help maintain a healthy immune system, helping to strengthen the body’s defences and relieve the symptoms of colds and mild upper respiratory tract infections. Cordyceps and Ling Zhi (Reishi) has been used for centuries as a tonic to soothe the lung and relieve mild respiratory health conditions.
Turmeric is an Indian spice which has a long history of use in Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Curcumin/curcuminoid is the active component found in turmeric which is responsible for its health benefits including anti-inflammation, antioxidant and immune support. Inflammation is a natural response that helps the body to recover from illness and injury, however, chronic or uncontrolled inflammation can do more harm than good and is damaging to our body system.
