Over the course of the pandemic, alarming rates of infections have shifted the focus of populations towards health and wellness, particularly on immunity. Martin Kohlmeier, MD, PhD, details more about the possible role nutrition can play on immunity, more specifically with regards to upper respiratory tract infections, which is of utmost essence in the time of COVID-19. View the video to hear Dr. Kohlmeier discuss further about nutrition and immunity, as well as the roles of early acting innate, then humoral immunity, the impact of nutritional status on respiratory infections, and the latest updates on the relationship of vitamin D status and COVID-19 severity and outcomes.

While new forms of malnutrition has emerged, such as overnutrition, undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies still affect the world today. Currently, one-third of the population is deficient in at least 1 micronutrient, and this may affect immune response. Otilia Perichart-Perera, PhD, MSc, RDN, details how nutrients and the lack thereof may affect the immune system, such as how it may alter immunologic function and have inflammatory effects, nutrition-related chronic diseases, and in the era of COVID-19, the dietary and lifestyle changes that have brought about the trends in nutrition today, and its effects of the gut microbiome and its implications on immunity. Learn more about this, as well possible interventions such as supplementation, especially in women and children in this video.
