The number of #Covid-19 positive cases are on the rise. After several months of lock down, most of us have gotten back to our business adapting to the new normality of social distancing, masks, sanitizers and #IMMUNO BOOSTERS!
Most of the pharmacies these days are running out of stock on immunity boosters and Vitamin tablets because we ‘think’ popping a #Vitamin-C tablet could help us build immunity and save us from the virus.
But what we are ignorant is of the fact that, an obese person or a person with lifestyle diseases will have lesser ability to cope with diseases. The immune system becomes inactive in such cases and therefore consuming an immunity booster would make no or lesser impact on one’s body.
For example, excessive blood sugar and excessive insulin production can lead to a deficiency of many nutrients, especially magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, and #Vitamin-D. This weakens the immune system and thus the Vitamin C tablet’s effect becomes null.
Towards each of these, the first stone to be laid is with one’s eating habits and thereby controlling insulin levels, blood sugar levels, and reduce obesity. Eating right is as important as taking any precautions against the #pandemic. Now that we are being told to live with the virus amongst us, any of us could be affected in the near future. So the first thing we could be asking ourselves is ‘am I fit enough to be able to recover?’. A self assessment on our health and health introspection is inevitable these days. Every minute symptom that our body shows needs to be understood to improve our health.
Here’s what we, at ESCASO® GDDiET® suggests to improve one’s metabolic health and immunity.
Eat #nutrient dense real foods
Increase leafy vegetables intake that include phytonutrients and #antioxidants
Eat at regular timings.
Maintain balanced diet

This pandemic has taught us that the only important thing that matters to anyone in the whole wide world is one’s health. The job you earned, money you made, positions you held doesn’t matter, if your health isn’t taken care of, your survival is at risk.
Like Jack Ma, the billionaire founder of Ali Baba said, “If you put money and bananas in front of monkeys they will choose bananas not knowing that money can buy a lot of bananas. Similarly if you put health and money in front of humans, we tend to choose money not knowing that only health can bring more money and happiness”. That’s how much our health needs to be prioritized.
Let us be grateful for not being infected with the virus until today, and if you have been infected and recovered, you have more reasons to be grateful for. Let’s put health first before anything else.
