What should we be eating during the COVID-19 outbreak to better protect ourselves against the virus?

FOX 2 spoke with Dr. Kellyann Petrucci. Watch the video player below for more information.

  • Citrus fruits - Like lemon water. The doctor says one thing you want to do is always have a hot liquid. It breaks down the mucus -- going into your stomach and gastric acids can break apart the virus before it gets to your lungs. 
  • Berries - They reduce inflammation in the body. 
  • Fresh garlic - Before you throw your garlic into any foods, cut it and let it sit for a minute. The potency of the anti-microbial effect heightens even more
  • Ginger - Powerful anti-inflammatory, put it in anything you can
  • Red pepper - High in Vitamin C. We want Zinc - Zinc and Vitamin C are a powerful combination.  
  • Pumpkin seeds - Full of Zinc
  • The biggest advice Dr. Kellyann Petrucci has is not to smoke. Try a humidifier. Stay away from cold drinks at this time.
  • And of course, sleep, the recommended 7-8 hours, and exercise.
