Can we boost our immune system against Corona Virus?

On 02 April 2020 by Droobi


The immune system is a well-designed system, you don’t want it to work more than normal otherwise it can lead to serious problems like auto-immune diseases. However, it is our duty to support our body systems in working to their best performance, and that is doable.


Few things science has proven related to the performance of the immune system:


Chronic stress is associated with the suppression of immunity. Consider stress management techniques like meditation, yoga and excercise. Also, give yourself a break, redefine your priorities and try not to focus on too many things a time.


Drinking alcohol more than one drink per day for women and 2 drinks per day for men can weaken the immune system, making the body more vulnerable to infections. So, if you want to drink, do it responsibly.


Exercise is essential for a healthy body including a healthy immune system. It can promote good circulation, allowing the cells of the immune system to efficiently move and achieve their functions.


Regular adequate nutrition is needed by a healthy immune system to function normally. So, the next time you visit the supermarket, remember, the more colorful the fruits and vegetables are, the better. Aim to include a variety of food in your meals


Staying hydrated can boost your immune health too, Zumpano says. Water helps your body produce lymph, which carries white blood cells and other immune system cells. Try to avoid overdoing beverages that can made you dehydrated, like coffee. Or try eating more hydrating foods, such as cucumbers, celery or watermelon.


7 to 8 hours of quality sleep are recommended by the National Sleep Foundation, to keep your immune system strong. If you can’t make it,

take two naps less than 30 minutes each during the day, it  has been shown to help lessen stress and the negative effects that sleep deprivation has on the immune system.


Do I need to take vitamin supplements?


Yes, for people who do not eat well like some elderly with medical conditions. However, vitamins are better absorbed and used from real food.

Some supplements may have serious side effects, so be sure to consult with your doctor first.


Final note, even with the best performing immune system, the rules to protect yourself from catching the virus still apply ( like good hygiene and social distancing…) ; having a healthy immune system does not necessarily mean the virus cannot invade your body and cause damage. So keep taking your precautions and stay safe. Good Luck!

Diabetes Program

I have been living with type 2 diabetes for 5 years now. I used to struggle to maintain my blood sugar levels under control. Droobi has truly changed my life! My blood sugars are at target now, I lost some weight and changed my eating habits. I am so happy with the daily support I receive from my health coach. They are always super-supportive and positive even in my worse days. I really don't know what would I do without my personal coach. Thank you Droobi for helping me live better with diabetes.

Gestational Diabetes Program

On my 3rd pregnancy, I was informed after doing a test that I had gestational diabetes. I was really shocked because I was healthy in my previous pregnancies. When my doctor recommended Droobi, I thought I will give it a try. My health coach was super reactive and very helpful. She supported me in tracking my blood sugars and make the right food choices every single day. The program helped me overcome my fear and have a healthy delivery and baby. I am still using it even after giving birth.

Prevention program

​I have heard about Droobi online and I decided to give its Prevention Program a try, given that diabetes runs in my family. It’s a very easy program, small steps made me lose weight, exercise more, and reduce the risk of getting chronic disease. Great simple app that offers the support, through reminders, tracking tools, lessons and professional coaches. I’ve been using it over a year and I would recommend it to anyone.
