When it comes to pandemic, prevention is always better than cure, and sticking to the fundamentals like wearing masks, keeping a nutritious diet, and washing hands often, as well as following a good diet and fitness routine may go a long way in keeping the infection at bay. 

A powerful immune system can aid in the fight against the highly infectious Omicron strain. Our immune army's T-cells also play a vital role in killing virus-infected cells and protecting us. Their effectiveness in battling new Covid-19 strains has been discovered to be greater than antibodies. 

Diet plays a vital role in boosting our immunity. Home-cooked meals, fiber-rich foods, vitamin C-rich foods, and micronutrient-rich foods such as green leafy vegetables and fruits can all contribute to enhance our health. 

We will suggest you some food items that will help you fight Omicron: 

Ghee: Ghee is a lipid that is easily digestible and generates heat in the body, keeping you warm. It’s a great thing to add in your daily diet. 

Amla: Amla is a seasonal fruit that is high in vitamin C and helps to strengthen your immune system. It protects you against all diseases and illnesses. Make sure to have raw amla or amla juice on a regular basis. 

Millets: Millets are full of fiber and have a low glycemic index, making it a great choice for diabetics. It not only boosts your immunity but also helps you lose weight. Millets such as ragi, bajra, and jowar, which are high in fiber and healthy for your digestive system and blood circulation, are wonderful to add during the winter season. 

Ginger: Its anti-inflammatory characteristics aid in the treatment of sore throats. It has a high level of effectiveness against germs, bacteria, and viruses. Adding it to your tea or kaadha on a daily basis will help your immune system stay robust. 

Turmeric: It’s a potent antioxidant, and including it in your daily diet can help you get rid of your cough problems. Take 1 tsp of turmeric, mix it one glass of warm water and have it every morning on empty stomach. 

Honey: High on antioxidants and good for digestion and gut health, it's effective for sore throat also. Add it to your ginger tea or kadhaa to fight Omicron.
