Scientists from India have investigated the issue of nutrition during and before the coronavirus infection.

Experts have learned that a low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein diet (the ketogenic diet) significantly reduces the risk of contracting coronavirus. If a person does become infected, then his diet can facilitate the transfer of COVID-19.

Indian researchers noted that during the ketogenic diet, a person receives little "bad" cholesterol in the body, which also stabilizes blood sugar levels.

In addition, the ketogenic diet increases plasma ketone bodies, which control oxidative stress and have anti-inflammatory effects. Therefore, even with a coronavirus infection, the period of illness will be greatly facilitated and may not lead to serious consequences.

`` Such a diet can improve the functioning of adaptive immune cells and reduce the risk associated with COVID-19, '' the study says, citing data from the Times of India.

Recall that there are already more than 70 million people infected with a new type of coronavirus in the world. The leaders in terms of the number of infected, according to the latest information, are the United States, India, Brazil and Russia.

Earlier it was reported that American scientists have found an easy way to destroy COVID-19.
