Coronavirus Has a Crush… on Sugar

Coronavirus has a crush on sugar.  It gets really amped and energized on sugar and makes a bunch of virus babies.  Coronavirus loves that sugar is the most inflammatory food you can eat.  So, if you are exposed to Coronavirus, don’t feed it sugar or processed foods that turn into sugar once you eat them.

What should you eat to help your body beat the Coronavirus?  Foods that decrease inflammation can help your immune system squelch the Coronavirus.  

Anti-inflammatory foods include:

• green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, chard)

• cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli)

• omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, sardines, chia seeds, and flax seeds) 

• nuts like walnuts and almonds

• berries

• beans like lentils, chickpeas, pinto beans 

• unrefined, whole grains like quinoa or barley

• fermented veggies like sauerkraut and kimchi

• spices like turmeric, ginger, rosemary, cinnamon

• green tea and black tea

Speaking of green tea, several studies have proven there is antiviral activity in the polyphenols found in green tea.  In fact, some of the chemical compounds in green tea and in dark chocolate have been found to interfere with the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to replicate by binding to its main protease.  Does that mean you can eat a bucket of dark chocolate?  No.  Moderation is key.
