Superfoods That May Help Promote Lung Health Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

By Merab Inyika March 29, 2021

Covid 19 pandemic has affected so many people across the globe. While some remain asymptomatic, others experience severities that take a toll on them. Adults of any age with underlying medical conditions are at a higher risk of severe illness from the virus. One such condition is lung-related troubles like asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

While exercise and medications are a must for any health-related condition, food plays an important role in boosting immunity and nourishment from within.

Here are superfood options that help promote overall lung-health;

  1. Citrus fruits:

A good source of vitamin C and antioxidants, citrus fruits like lemon, orange etc help prevent the body from inflammation and free radical damages. Regular consumption of vitamin C helps limit asthma and other respiratory issues.

  1. Leafy greens:

Vegetables like spinach, kale, cabbage etc are loaded with vitamin A, C, E and K, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help boost lung-health. They also contain a strong antioxidant, B-carotene, which is known for its potential for scavenging free radicals and protecting the body from damage.

  1. Carrots:

Alongside promoting lung health, carrots are known to counter the effects of smoking - a factor that increases COVID risk.  Carrots are loaded with beta carotene that provides protection to smokers who are exposed to an increased risk of numerous cancers and other degenerative diseases.

  1. Berries:

Berries are the powerhouse of antioxidants; they help protect lungs from various troubles.  The dietary flavonoid in berries (especially blueberries) help slow down age-related lung function decline.

  1. Broccoli:

Broccolis are loaded with an anti-inflammatory compound called Sulforaphane. This compound helps protect our lungs from toxic damages.

Other superfoods for lung health and also help boost your immunity  include Black  seed oil, moringa powder, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and honey.
