Coronavirus is an infectious disease that has been confirmed in more than seven million people across the world. You could lower your risk of severe COVID-19 symptoms by adding more extra virgin olive oil to your diet, it’s been claimed.
The UK has officially passed the peak of the coronavirus infection.
The government has advised the public to remain indoors in an attempt to curb the spread of the infection.
Despite nearing the final stretch of the COVID-19 outbreak, hundreds of people are still dying in the UK everyday.
But, eating more extra virgin olive oil could lower your chances of severe complications of coronavirus, it’s been claimed.
“The microbes that live in your gut [microbiome] play an important part in maintaining your immune system and your overall health,” said the COVID-19 Symptom Study app.
“If you want to do the best thing to support your health during the COVID-19 pandemic, maintaining a healthy gut is probably more important than stockpiling toilet paper.
“Recent research has shown that following a Mediterranean diet can improve your gut diversity and reduce inflammation, which may put you in a better position to fight pathogens like coronavirus.
“This involves eating plenty of fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, legumes and pulses; healthy fats like high-quality extra virgin olive oil; and lean meat or fish for those who wish. At the same time, keep your gut bugs healthy by limiting alcohol intake, salt, sweets and sugary drinks.”
