Food consumed when exposed covid-19 become one of the important things for the healing process. Foods rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc will help the healing process. That’s according to the CDC’s website.
In addition to the foods that should be consumed, there is also a list of foods and drinks that should not be consumed when exposed to COVID-19, because it can slow down the healing process and make your symptoms worse. Here are some of them:
1. Alcohol Drink

Alcohol is not only a drink that causes people to become dependent, the substances present in alcohol can weaken the immune system. Alcohol consumption is also known to increase symptoms of anxiety, fear, and panic. This is according to the WHO website.
Although for some people it is considered to reduce stress, consuming alcohol when exposed to Covid-19 is not the right choice, Beauties. Alcohol can make certain drugs we are currently taking less effective and increase the toxicity of other drugs.
2. Oily and Spicy Food

Generally, fried foods such as fast food are often oily and high in fat. The oils and fats present in these foods will have a negative impact on the microbes in the digestive system that suppress immune function.
Oily foods can also increase bad cholesterol in the body and slow down the healing process. In addition, spicy food should also not be consumed when exposed to COVID-19, as reported by the Eat This, Not That!
This is because spicy food can irritate the throat and cause a prolonged cough. Sore throat is one of the symptoms experienced when we are exposed to COVID-19.
3. Foods with High Sugar Content

Foods with high sugar content can reduce immune function. If the body’s immunity or immunity decreases, viruses and bacteria will more easily enter the body and damage the immune system, as reported by the CNBC page.
Sugar is also known to cause inflammation in the body. Also avoid soda drinks, because the sugar content in soft drinks is quite high and has a negative impact on the body exposed to the virus.
4. Drinks Containing Caffeine

As we already know, drinks containing caffeine such as coffee or tea can cause the body to become dehydrated. Water is the best drink that should be consumed to keep the body well hydrated.
Keeping the body hydrated can keep the body’s organ functions working properly and the healing process will be faster. Make sure to always drink water, Beauties!
