Acıbadem University Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Nutrition and Dietetics Professor. Dr. Murat Baş explained the food that should not be taken into the houses during the coronavirus process.
Acıbadem University Faculty of Health Sciences, Department of Nutrition and Dietetics Professor. Dr. Murat Baş, stating that there is no food that acts against and eliminates any viruses or bacteria, “It is not right to add meaning to the head or to pickle and pickle water. Every day, pickle food brings salt consumption. Salt consumption is also negative for intestinal health. Those who have hypertension, kidney and liver problems and cancer patients should be more careful with these foods, so let's not add meaning to any food. Let's not talk about a concept called 'super food'. In this period, open milk should never enter home. Because we do not know where that milk came from, who was alive, sneezed or coughed while milking. ' said.
Professor Dr. The head said that the immune system is related to nutrition and gut health because about 70 percent of immune cells are produced in the intestines.
Emotional impairments such as head, stress, anxiety and depression, which indicate that constant sitting, not exercising, high-fat, sugary, low-fiber, poor vegetables and fruits, called “Western style nutrition” are effective in weakening immunity. He noted that it could cause a crash.
The head said that the most definitive conclusion about whether the immune system is weak or not can be reached after a physician's control and looking at the molecules that determine the immunity in the blood, but being very often sick is one of the biggest indicators.
FOCUSING ON A SINGLE FOOD TO IMPROVE IMMUNITY IS NOT A SOLUTION
Emphasizing that everyone makes different suggestions to strengthen immunity, but it should be known that nutrition is a whole, Baş stated that more than 50 nutrients are needed daily, including vitamins, minerals, pigments that give color to vegetables and fruits called bioactive compounds.
For this reason, Murat Baş underlined that nothing can be solved by eating a single food and it should be considered as a holistic one, and he made the following recommendations: “Consider a round plate, half of the plate must consist of vegetables and fruits for both lunch and dinner. It is necessary to separate it as cooked and raw because some loss of vitamins occurs when cooked.Therefore, we need to combine colorful, if possible, vegetables of different colors every day, and switch to a diet based on vegetables and fruits.On the other hand, our protein sources in 1/4 of the plate Our protein sources will consist of as much red meat as possible, more poultry meat such as chickens and turkeys, or fish from the most important protein sources. In addition, such as chickpeas, beans, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds. hard k Eggs with nuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds and eggs will be included in this group. There will also be grain sources in the other 4 in 1 part of the plate. The important thing here is that there is a group of whole grains. So we are not talking about white pasta, white rice, white flour. We are talking about whole grains that are not separated. “
“ANXIETY, DEPRESSION AND STRESS ENCOURAGES TO FOOD”
Professor Dr. Murat Baş pointed out that the consumption of food and drink containing added sugar was one of the biggest mistakes made during this period, and continued: “We all go home in the evening, follow the news, follow the social media.” What is happening, what is going on, how many people have been seen? ” When we say that anxiety, depression and stress encourage us to eat more, malnutrition habits come along. Our focus should be drawn to different points. It is absolutely necessary to have milk and dairy products such as yogurt, kefir, milk and buttermilk next to our plate. Olive oil is our main crown but expensive. Therefore, olive oil is used in some butter. “
“As the amount of fat in the body increases, immunity decreases”
Talking about healthy snack alternatives, Baş emphasized that fruit is an important food in this context. In addition, Baş stated that both nuts and oil seeds are good alternatives such as raw almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, which will be preferred without salt, and that dried fruits can be eaten as an alternative to fresh fruits.
Murat Baş recommends to pay attention to the portion size while consuming nuts and dried fruits, “If you eat 30 grams of walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, it will give you health, but when you consume 100 grams, you will get about 700 calories of energy. we should not forget. ” he spoke.
“THIS IS PROBIOTIC, YOU ARE PROTECTED FROM VIRUSES, IT IS NOT RIGHT”
Professor Dr. Noting that there are no foods that act against or eliminate any viruses or bacteria, the head made the following assessments: “Kelle leg is a soup in Turkish culinary culture, but it is not right to add meaning to the head of kelle or pickle and pickle water. There are probiotic bacteria in the pickle juice, which can be pickled, yes, but in order for us to call a product a probiotic product, one gram of that product must have 1 billion live probiotics. Let's give an example of the pickle, Ayşe and Fatma aunt made pickles. The hygiene conditions of people, the water they use, the salt content, the vegetables may be different. Therefore, the pickles of all people are not the same. So 'This is probiotic, if you eat, you are protected from diseases and viruses.' There is no edible distress next to pickled dry beans, chickpeas, but every day eating pickles brings salt consumption. Salt consumption is also one of the most important factors that negatively affect intestinal health. People with hypertension, kidney and liver problems and cancer patients are more likely to be against these foods. “So let's not add meaning to any food. There is no such food right now in the world. Let's not talk about a concept called” super food “.”
DO NOT PREFER PRODUCTS FOR SALE
Underlining that no open products should be bought in order to be protected from Kovid-19, Baş said, “These may be nuts, such as spices, walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds. In this period, open milk should never enter the house. Because where did that milk come from, who was alive, We do not know if he sneezed or coughed while milking. We do not know if the container he brought was a healthy container, whether the virus was transmitted. Even if I was, I wouldn't even make yogurt at home. During this period, it must be prepared with pasteurized milk. ” He spoke in the form.
Professor Dr. Murat Baş, from his many people these days, “Should we take vitamin and mineral supplements?” Stating that he heard the question, he gave the following information: “There is a problem in the excessive use of both vitamins and minerals. In this period, the most important 3 nutrients if people will use them are vitamin D, zinc and vitamin C. These three are considered sufficient to increase immunity, but excessive harmful not forgetting this. Therefore, it is very important to use food supplements after consulting a health professional. The main point of immunity is the intestines. Probiotic supplements sold in pharmacies can also be used to protect and maintain gut health, but it is very important to make them in consultation with a health professional. ” (AA)
