COVID-19 is a respiratory illness accompanied by a cytokine storm and high level of inflammation. This creates a major disruption in the body, affecting the appetite, energy levels, muscle mass and sleep cycles, as well as the general quality of life and wellbeing. We know that the pillars of a strong immune system are a healthy diet, adequate physically activity, and management of stress.
