Scientific Roundtable Discussion about “Precision Nutrition and Food Science Strategies to Combat Persistent Metabolic Challenges Associated with Long-COVID SRD

SARS‐CoV‐2, the etiological agent of COVID-19, is devoid of any metabolic capacity; therefore, the viral pathogen must hijack host cellular metabolic machinery for its progeny and propagation. Emerging clinical data suggest that about 25-70% of virus-free COVID-19 survivors continue to sustain viral-induced human metabolic reprogramming dysregulation (HMR/D) and exhibit a wide range of symptoms that are persistent, exacerbated, or new ‘onset’ clinical manifestations, collectively termed as post-acute sequelae of COVID-19 (PASC) or long COVID. PASC patients experience several debilitating clinical conditions with >200 different and overlapping symptoms that may last for weeks to months. Nutritional intervention is an important aspect of recovery from and management of PASC that often concomitantly presents severe inflammation, malnutrition, and sarcopenia, especially in those with preexisting health conditions, and typically at risk of adverse health events, such as among pediatric populations, the elderly, and women of childbearing age. An adequate food supply and availability of foods that contain an array of potential bioactives may be critical in reducing risks associated with PASC, the ongoing global health crisis.
