25 Apr Olive oil strengthens the immune system
What are the usual ways to consume Extra Virgin olive oil? I’m sure you put it in your salad, maybe make marinades, pour it on toast? Perhaps you drink a spoonful of oil sometimes to cleanse the intestines. Did you know that real high-quality olive oil protects the immune system from viral attacks as well as vitamins?
It has been repeatedly proven that olive oil is rich in polyphenols-antioxidants that protect cells from destruction and increase the body’s resistance and relieve inflammation.
Everyone is afraid that viruses affect the immune system, but in fact, our body is constantly fighting for its survival with an aggressive environment. The skin, tonsils, tonsils, lymph nodes, spleen, and even the Appendix are all part of the immune system.
A healthy person does not need to stimulate the immune system, and even harmful, except for diagnosed acquired or congenital immunodeficiency, of course. But it is still necessary to maintain and strengthen the immune system, because when the body needs all its strength to fight the virus, even caries or some neglected sores will spend a resource on themselves.
In the case of infection with a coronavirus or any other, our task is not to interfere with the immune system to cope. Any new virus is a “stranger” to our immune system, so antibiotics do not work. When it hits the nasal mucosa, the immune system immediately turns on and the body begins to produce specific antibodies. At this time, we are lying with a temperature and a stuffy nose. If the body is weakened and cellular immunity is not strong enough, the virus penetrates further into the lungs, pneumonia begins, which is more difficult to cope with and you need to be hospitalized.
Do not forget that proper nutrition is a very large part of the immune system and the decision is up to you to take care in advance to meet the virus in full readiness or not.
