Which foods should we eat more before and after vaccination?
Drink plenty of water and fluids before and after vaccination. It is important to get enough water before and after the Covid-19 vaccine. Adequate fluid intake not only improves the body's performance in terms of vaccination, but also prevents a drop in blood pressure in people who are usually afraid of injections or vaccines.
People with cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, or lung disease should talk to their doctor about fluid intake. Juicy foods such as fruits, vegetables, soups and broths, in addition to helping to hydrate the body, also strengthen the immune system. Especially if you develop a fever after vaccination, it is recommended to drink plenty of fluids and juicy foods. Note that sugary drinks such as sugary juices and very sweet syrups, carbonated beverages and all very sugary drinks in general weaken the immune system and impair its function. The best drink is water. Consumption of fresh and natural fruit juices, low-salt and non-carbonated buttermilk, low-sweet homemade syrups are also suitable for hydrating the body.
Adding spices such as ginger, peppermint, cinnamon, pepper, turmeric, garlic and onion is recommended in food preparation due to its anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric can also be added to tea. Fish is also an anti-inflammatory food. Fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, herring, trout, carp and cod liver oil have the most omega-3s as anti-inflammatory agents. Nuts and nuts (almonds, walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, peanuts and sesame), sesame oil and olive oil are also anti-inflammatory foods.
