While a healthy and balanced diet is important to maintain the functions of the immune system, there are some foods that threaten this immunity, at a time when we need our immunity to be in the strongest state to confront the emerging corona virus.
In this report – which was published by Marie Claire in its Russian version – writer Ksenia Chekovskia pointed out that vitamins are not the only nutrient that the immune system needs, and improper nutrition undermines most of the benefits of the nutrients you need to boost immunity.
Here are the foods that you should stop eating to maintain your immune system:
Sausage and sausage
The author stated that half of the formula for canned meat includes ingredients such as glucose syrups, flavor enhancers, color stabilizers, dyes, and white fats; These processed food preparations are among the main destructive elements of the immune system.
The various types of sauces that we consume – such as cheese sauce and mayonnaise – contain a large proportion of saturated fat. Thus, it may harm the health of the arteries, while other sauces such as barbecue sauce and hot, sweet and sour sauces are harmful to the intestine, along with their sugar and flavor content.
Breakfast cereals and noodles
Breakfast cereals contain a lot of sugar, and instant soups contain flavorings, palm oil and glucose syrup, while dressings that come with instant noodles contain preservatives and flavorings, according to the author.
Nutritionists always warn against excessive sugar consumption, which indirectly affects the immune system and increases inflammation in the body.
Beware of the sugar hidden in processed foods that are claimed to be healthy, such as fruit yogurt, instead it is recommended to eat natural yogurt with pieces of fruit that you prepare and add; Because that would be beneficial to the immune system more.
