Nutritional recommendations to boost the immune system of frontline workers.


Cristina Palacios, associate professor in the Department of Dietetics and Nutrition at the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work, and a team of international experts recently released a guide for the Latin American Society of Nutrition (SLAN) to help frontline workers protect their health during the COVID-19 pandemic with nutritional guidelines that boost the immune system.

“Frontline workers, whether they are healthcare workers or essential personnel in other industries that are helping our communities stay afloat, are putting their health on the line and I hope that with these recommendations, we can at least help guide them be safer,” Palacios said.

good link 2greys thank you.

Thanks. A few years ago, when having my B12 injection from our practice nurse and discussing the fact I took Vit D as housebound, she said she did not understand what all the fuss was about, as they were only vitamins. A lot of educating needs doing in this area, but with reliable literature (as you have just found,) rather than stuff by manufacturers etc.
