Most of the countries around the world including India have been caught by the new variant Omicron of Corona. According to health experts, it is very important to include protein in your diet to prevent corona and for faster recovery in case of corona. The reason for this is that due to lack of protein in the body, our immune system becomes weak, which increases the risk of corona infection.
role of protein in the body
Protein is a very important macronutrient for our body. It plays an important role in repairing our cells and making new cells. Lack of protein in the body directly affects our immune system. That is, if protein is less then immunity is less, if protein is more then immunity is also high.
Protein needed during corona
Experts believe that people already suffering from serious diseases during corona are at risk of multi-organ failure. To avoid this, patients are given anti-inflammatory and anti-viral drugs of amino acids. According to experts, meat and other sources of protein contain all the essential amino acids, which can protect us from these troubles.
Apart from this, there is also a risk of viral infection due to lack of protein. Recently, Floreona Naman infection has been in the news. This is the co-occurrence of corona and influenza infections. The body needs proteins to fight such types of viruses.
How much protein should we take in a day?
Although you should take 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of your weight daily, but it also depends on your gender, age and medical history. However, corona patients should increase the amount of protein in the diet. Please consult your doctor before making any changes in diet.
Non-vegetarian and vegetarian sources of protein
All animal products like chicken, fish, eggs and turkey are high in protein. Along with this, protein can also be found in milk and its products. If you are a vegetarian, then lentils, beans, nuts, seeds and whole grains can make up for the lack of protein in the body. If you are a corona patient and want a faster recovery, then change your diet after consulting a doctor.
