In a recent post on her brand’s website, Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she was one of the stars who battled COVID-19 last year. She also gave an idea of the symptoms she battled with at the time.


Gwyneth Paltrow, 48, recently shared a piece about healing her body with a long-term detox program. The actress confessed in the article that she contracted COVID-19 early last year, sharing:

“It left me with some long-tail fatigue and brain fog.”

Paltrow explained how she ended up on a detox program on her Goop website. She shared how she had tests done this January that revealed she had very high inflammation levels in her body.

Seeking assistance, the “Contagion” star reached out to her functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Will Cole, for guidance. She described the doctor as one of the smartest experts she knew in the field.


Cole saw her laboratory results and explained to her that healing was going to take longer than usual. The protocol he put her on is plant and keto-based but quite flexible.


Paltrow shared how she could have fish and other meat products. However, she fasts until 11 a.m. daily, and although she’s used to having cleanses, she confessed to needing to adjust to this one.


The star shared how she was cooking a lot more on this detox and praised it for coming with delicious foods. She revealed that the program didn’t include sugar and shared some of the products she was using.

Paltrow, who was one of the first guests on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in January 2021, proved she didn’t need makeup in a social media post shared in the same month. She posed for an Instagram image makeup-free.

The “Emma” actress appeared sitting with her foot up on a desk while wearing prescription glasses at home. At the time, the star was promoting her brand’s G. Label clothing collection on Instagram.

Paltrow has sort-of retired from Hollywood since having her children.

The actress is married to producer Brad Falchuk, 49. Together they are parenting two teenagers, Apple, 16, and Moses, 14, whom she had with her ex-husband and musician Chris Martin, 43.


The Oscar winner has sort-of retired from Hollywood since having her children. Instead, she’s focused her energy on her Goop lifestyle brand while still appearing in films like “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”

She also stars in her husband’s Netflix series “The Politician.” Paltrow spoke about transitioning from full-time acting to her part-time work while on “Quarantined with Bruce” on December 11, 2020.
