How can we strengthen our immunity against the Corona virus, according to dietician Mirai Qurbani?

With the Corona epidemic spreading all over the world to reach 199,409 cases globally to date, including 442 in Qatar, 241 in Bahrain, 196 in Egypt, 171 in Saudi Arabia, 142 in Kuwait, 124 in Lebanon, and 113 in the UAE, the focus remains On the prevention of deadly virus which is said to be sourced from the seafood market in Wuhan, China.

What can each of us do to boost our immune system, according to dietician Mirai Qurbani?

A hygiene routine like washing hands is essential, but it is also important to include antiviral foods in our diet and they are as follows:

Antivirus supplements

Contrary to what is rumored, vitamin C does not protect against corona virus! Experts found no vitamin C benefit for preventing or treating the common cold. Supplements that protect are:

Vitamin D

It strengthens our immune system and can modify innate and adaptive immune responses. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with increased autoimmunity as well as an increased exposure to infection.

Therefore, I advise everyone to take vitamin D supplements especially these days as we are not exposed to too much sun.


This mineral may provide effective anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory results. Research indicates that people who are deficient in zinc, suffer from severe dysfunction in their immune systems. Taking zinc supplements reduced the duration of cold symptoms, such as coughs, nasal secretions, and muscle pain.

Mirai Tip: If you're a vegetarian, it's best to start taking zinc supplements right away.


70% of our immune system is in the gut. Therefore, eating probiotics helps boost the immune system! Probiotics are good bacteria, such as bifidobacteria and lactobacilli, which are found naturally in the intestine as well as in fermented foods. These friendly microbes help protect the body from pathogenic microbes, and they also produce substances that keep the intestinal lining healthy, improving the immune system's functions.

 But not all types of probiotics are equal. There are criteria for good bacteria that are considered probiotics.

Mushrooms (Reishi and Chaga)

It boosts immune function by affecting white blood cells, which helps to fight infection and cancer.

In addition, it contains regulated carbohydrates that help immune cells fight infection, including increasing the production of natural killer cells.


This plant has been used for thousands of years to reduce stress, strengthen and strengthen the immune system. Since high and chronic stress levels weaken your immune system and cause chronic disease over time, Ashwagandha can help by modifying the reaction to stress and stress.

Echinacea or Echinacea

Perhaps the most well-known immune support herb is the echinacea, which helps the immune system fight infections and viruses. This is one of the reasons why Echinacea is sometimes used to treat colds.

According to studies, taking Echinacea may reduce the risk of catching a cold by more than 50% and make the duration of the common cold shorter for a day and a half.

As for the anti-virus foods, mention them:

Manuka honey

A magazine showed in 2016 why Manuka Honey is important to boost your immune system. Not only does it contain anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and oxidant properties, some research has indicated that it may have antiviral effects and may also help protect your body from influenza. So, keep eating manuka honey!


Turmeric consumption improves the reaction of each person's immune system, thanks to the properties of curcumin, a compound found in turmeric.

Note: If you take 1500 milligrams daily of turmeric as a dietary supplement, also make sure that it is accompanied by black pepper to ensure its absorption into the body.

the Garlic

It is a powerful antivirus and can be eaten raw, pureed, or added to all foods. You can mix chopped raw garlic with a tablespoon of manuka honey and consume a little mixture for three days.

Star Anise

Please pay attention, as I am not talking about the traditional anise!

It is a flower-flavored spice and contains chichemic acid which is used as the main material for producing Tamiflu, which is used for influenza virus. It is considered very powerful as an anti-virus! Boil the Star Anise in water and add it to green or black tea.


Mix ground ginger with Star Anise, add a little manuka honey and eat the mixture.

Coconut Oil

The lauric acid and caprylic acid present in it are necessary to strengthen the immune system against viruses.

Resveratrol or Resveratrol

Foods rich in resveratrol, such as cocoa, dark chocolate, pistachios, peanuts, grapes, berries and strawberries, are useful for fighting fungal infections, UV rays, stress and wounds.

Now let's talk about anti-viral herbs

Oregano, basil or basil herbs and dried thyme are perfect for immunity! It can be used in all types of tea to enhance respiratory health, including mucous problems that eventually become "breeding grounds for bacteria and pathogens".

Some preventive advice:

Mix ginger and garlic with 1 tablespoon of thyme and oregano to make a healthy tea.
Inhale essential oils such as thyme, oregano, eucalyptus, and Star Anise. Or you can use a spray device in the room.

In conclusion, the immune system of each of us is our weapon to defend our health with a healthy lifestyle choice that strengthens this immune system. So consider the following:
Reducing stress and stress
Eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables
Exercise regularly
Avoid eating foods rich in sugar
Maintain a healthy weight
Get enough sleep (at least 8 hours a day)
