NFSC: Keep your mind and body healthy during the Covid-19 pandemic

NFSC and AUBMC’s Department of Clinical Nutrition prepared important information on the ways in which diet and lifestyle can—and cannot—boost your immune system during the coronavirus pandemic. 
The team of nutritionists emphasize that “thorough and frequent hand washing, avoiding touching your face, and social distancing remain the most effective means to avoid COVID-19 infection (or any other viral respiratory illnesses).” They also recommend:

  • Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet
  • ​Physical activity for at least 2.5 hours per week
  • Getting enough sleep
