Obesity and Covid-19

The current pandemic has intensified our interest in health and wellness and made us aware of how important it is to maintain a healthy weight.

Obesity has been shown to be one of the highest risk factors for Covid-19 diagnosis, hospitalization and higher risk for death.

Several other diseases are also linked to Covid severity such as respiratory dysfunctions, heart disease and hypertension

Vitamin A deficiency is very common in obese individuals. In obesity you also see a chronic inflammatory state (Hotamisligil 2006).

Antioxidants such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Omega-3, polyphenols, carotenoids, and chlorophyll are all beneficial in reducing inflammation.

Plant based foods are lower in saturated fats which can be helpful when trying to maintain a stable weight during lockdown.
