In times of coronavirus, it is better to be safe than sorry, and that includes boosting the immune system. For this, it is important that you stay away from certain foods that, despite how delicious they are, sabotage that function.
As you can imagine, they are foods that have little nutritional value and are high in calories, which also compromise you to other diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.
Yes, it is sad to know, but save it for special moments if you want to take care of your immune system. They are high in fat, salt, sugar, and processed foods that serve as ingredients, which makes you weak to bacteria and viruses, according to the same medium.
Not in vain have they been recognized as the most harmful food and even with a tendency to be carcinogenic due to the fact that they have glycidamide, which appears at the high temperatures with which they are cooked, according to the Informative Plan portal.
Although through advertising they have been sold as diet foods, the truth is that common box cereals have a lot of sugar that ultimately weakens the immune system.
Oats, rice, amaranth, wheat, and corn are cereals with a high nutritional value that you should have in your diet.
Also ice cream is high in calories, even in its smallest servings. Half a cup of this has 14 grams of sugar and 30 grams of cholesterol, that is, the same that you should consume daily, reported the aforementioned source.
According to Glamor, this is one of the most harmful foods in this regard since it is rich in high glycemic carbohydrates which causes it to raise blood sugar levels, to the highest level, with only two slices.
This is worse when combined with other sugars or carbonated drinks. It is preferable that you replace it with its full version. This causes inflammation and wears down the immune system, even more so if we accompany it with sugary drinks such as soft drinks, fruit juices, or sweetened coffees.
