2-hour On-Demand: Diet, Gut Microbiota & Immunity

Price: $40.00

Course Description & Information:

  • Worldwide, millions of individuals have been affected by the prevailing SARS-CoV-2. Therefore, a robust immune system remains indispensable, as an immunocompromised host status has proven to be fatal. An optimal immune response depends on an adequate diet and nutrition in order to keep infection at bay. Poor nutrient status is associated with inflammation and oxidative stress, which in turn can impact the immune system. Dietary constituents can have an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, respectively. In this seminar, the importance of an optimal status of relevant nutrients and a healthy gut microbiota to effectively reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, thereby strengthening the immune system during the COVID-19 crisis is explored.
