“Adequate Intake of citrus fruits and green leafy vegetables supplies much-needed antioxidants to the body to fight viral infections,” he advised.

According to Parmeet Kaur, the Senior Dietician at Narayana Hospital in Gurugram, this winter season is approaching just around the corner like another second wave of the pandemic.

“Our body has the power to heal as most of 70-80 percent immunity comes from the gut. Vitamin C and antioxidants help to build up immunity and prevent various illnesses,” Kaur said.

Along with taking different natural products recommended by the Ministry of AYUSH for building immunity, the demand for natural antioxidants has also increased.

“To keep your body immune and healthy, using natural anti-oxidants like Gamma Oryzanol has many health benefits including boosting immunity as it neutralizes free radicals in the body,” Byotra told IANS. Gamma oryzanol is a substance that is taken out of rice bran oil. It is also found in wheat bran and some fruits and vegetables. People use it as medicine.
