4 Ways to Boost Your Immune System to Fight COVID-19


On 31st December 2019, the first case of coronavirus was reported in the WHO office in China and from that day, the virus spread throughout the world like wildfire and has affected millions of people of all ages. Doctors and researchers are continuously working to learn to come up with vaccines and different methods to fight the virus as the time progresses but so far, the only recommendation and suggestion for the masses is to take care of the immune system in order to fight against the COVID-19.

Immune System and Coronavirus (COVID-19):

The human body has a defense mechanism in place to fight against infections and viruses that can hurt our body. The immune system attacks viruses and infections and keeps us healthy.

Coronavirus is a form of the virus that enters our body through the respiratory system and infects our lungs and can cause further health complications.

The weakness of the immune system can be identified by the following signs;

  • Continuous stress
  • You get tired easily
  • You always a cold
  • Wounds take longer to heal
  • You often have stomach problems

Having a strong immune system helps you fight better against the coronavirus. But it takes work to build a strong immune system, and for the very least, we have listed down the possible ways to help you get there.

4 Ways to Boost the Immune System


1. Through the Use of Rice Milk

Rice milk is a great source to enhance the immune system’s capability to fight bacteria, infection, and viruses due to the high content of selenium and magnesium. Even people with lactose intolerance are advised to drink rice milk since it is cholesterol-free with unsaturated fat.

2. Through the Use of Rice Proteins  

Rice can be a good source of B vitamins (including thiamine, riboflavin, and niacin) and iron. Rice also represents an excellent source of manganese and magnesium.

Brown rice delivers more vitamins than white rice. In addition to thiamine and magnesium, brown rice contains selenium, which is essential in antioxidant processes and influences thyroid function.

3. Improving Sleeping Patterns

You may have noticed that when you don’t get enough sleep, you are more likely to catch a cold infection. Studies help to underline that well-rested people receiving the flu vaccine have developed greater immunity against the disease.

Not having enough sleep will lead to greater stress hormone levels. This can also cause the body to get more inflammation. You must improve the way you sleep in order to help build a strong immunity system.

4. Use of Vegetables and Fruits

Studies have shown that fruits and vegetables provide nutrients that can boost immune function — like beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. Since many vegetables, fruits, and other plant-based foods are also rich in antioxidants, they also help to minimize oxidative stress.

Beta-carotene: Beta-carotene is an effective antioxidant that can minimize inflammation by increasing disease-fighting cells in the body and improve immune function. Sweet potatoes, onions, and green leafy vegetables are excellent sources.

Vitamins C and E: Vitamins C and E are antioxidants that help in the destruction of free radicals and promote the normal immune response of the body. Vitamin C sources include red peppers, bananas, peas, broccoli, mangoes, lemons, and other vegetables and fruits. Sources of vitamin E comprise nuts, seeds, and broccoli.


It is vital to have a strong immune system in order to stay healthy and fight off infections and viruses. A person with a strong immune system tends to have a better chance at rapid recovery from infections compared to a person who has a weak immune system.

In these difficult times of COVID-19 pandemic, we highly recommend you to stay indoors as much as possible and follow the SOPs provided by the governments and WHO.

Stay Safe.
