How staying hydrated boosts your body’s first line of defense against the novel coronavirus?
Drinking water helps to oxygenate your cells. When your cells have enough oxygen, they are working at their full capacity, which helps them guard your body against any foreign bodies that try to enter, and fight them, if they do. Hydration also plays a very important role in regulating your body temperature. Staying hydrated is important for a variety of reasons, and keeping the risk of infections reduced is one of them. Hydration also helps in the transmission of nutrients to all parts of the body and keeps all body tissues and functions running efficiently – a pre-requisite for reducing your risk of infections. While staying hydrated does not guarantee that one will not contract the novel coronavirus, it can to a great extent be helpful in reducing your risk, and may also help in recovering from the disease.
