By choosing foods of plant origin and excluding processed foods from our diet we not only maintain the proper functioning of the heart, but we create a protection shield against coronavirus

Patients with cardiovascular disease as well as those suffering from an underlying disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity are more likely to develop Covid-19. 

A recent study led by Dr. Kim Williams, a cardiologist at Rush University Medical Center, adds the importance of a vegetarian diet for both reducing the incidence of cardiovascular disease and shielding the immune system against coronavirus: “If you really want to avoid a bad outcome from Alzheimer or even COVID-19, this is the time to change your diet”.

The importance of a healthy diet of plant origin

The findings of the research showed that a diet with whole grain and vegetable foods associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases, and ultimately contribute to a lesser risk of disease by coronavirus.

“When fed with unprocessed foods and foods of plant origin, the levels of inflammation of the heart are reduced by strengthening the immune system,” he says, urging us to follow a mostly vegetarian diet to prevent coronavirus.

The variety is great as there are more than 20,000 species of vegetables, fruits, cereals, and legumes on earth. The best solution is to choose fresh fruits and vegetables that are seasonal, depending on the time of year. But if you are still wondering what to eat, focus mainly on what the primary sector has to offer and it’s as little processed as possible. 

In addition to fruits and vegetables, you can eat oats, seeds such as flaxseed and chia seeds, nuts but also any legumes you like and try different recipes and combinations. You may also prefer whole grain foods as they are less processed.

“If it is a fruit, vegetable or plant, ensure you always consume it in its natural form and not processed,” says Williams and points out that when the vegan diet includes processed cereals, french fries, and sugary drinks, it ceases to be healthy, on the contrary burdens health much more than the food of animal origin.
