Millions of Americans are getting a COVID-19 vaccine every day, and now researchers have revealed which food you need to eat after receiving your vaccination.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that people may experience adverse side-effects after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. These side-effects can include fevers, chills, tiredness, and a headache.
According to Thaddeus Stappenbeck, MD, PhD, these side-effects are coming from inflammation that is happening as a result of your body adapting to the spike protein in the vaccine.
For this reason, eating foods that boost your immune system and are anti-inflammatory help to recover from a COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally, foods with high-water content and drinking plenty of fluids can speed up the recovery process from a COVID-19, according to the CDC.
EatThisNotThat recommends that people eat broth-based soups such as chicken soup that has immune-boosting foods such as kale, beans, lentils, potato, and broccoli.
