In Brazil, from the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic until May 2021, more than 13 million Brazilians faced and were cured of the disease. But the challenges linked to the virus do not always end with a medical discharge. In one study, most of those infected with SARS-Cov-2 (76%) reported the permanence or appearance of at least one symptom after the acute phase of the disease.
These sequelae have been called “post-covid syndrome,” naming a set of remnants of the disease that a person may have weeks or even months after being considered cured of Covid-19. The main symptoms include tiredness and muscle weakness, changes in taste and smell, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, and depression.
Thinking about this and the importance of nutrition as an ally in recovery and physical rehabilitation, Prodiet, with the signature of nutritionist and consultant Paula Soares, prepared 8 recipes and a tip to face these consequences and ensure good nutrition; check it out!
