19 Mar Foods That Boost Your Immune System (Part 2 of 3)
With everything going with the corona virus – Now, more than ever, it’s incredibly important to choose your foods wisely to ramp up your immune function.
But there’s so much confusion about which foods to pick…. Keep reading, we’re going to solve that!
I’m going to share some of the best foods that are shown to boost your immunity! – Ultimately “How to stay Ready”
One mantra I follow is “You don’t always want to GET Ready, you want to STAY ready”
Meaning: We can never predict when outbreak of any sort will occur. If our immune system compromised (not strong) BEFORE the outbreak, it makes us more vulnerable and susceptible and our body less able to fight!
In such a time as this, immune system health is important! This is the perfect time to start thinking about and how to build up your ‘nutritional fitness’ or ‘nutritional status’ so that you are always armed and prepared physically to fight and much as possible any virus or illness.
I will make this note, the best means of avoiding COVID-19 is good hygiene practices. But also, having a strong immune system will help your body “fight the fight” until medical attention is provided!
I am going to share 13 foods to add to your eating pattern on a regular basis. If you are currently eating them, Kudos to you and continue!
Spinach is not just rich in vitamin C. It’s also packed with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene, which may increase the infection-fighting ability of our immune systems.
Similar to broccoli, spinach is healthiest when it’s cooked as little as possible so that it retains its nutrients. However, light cooking enhances its vitamin A and potassium content
Look for yogurts that have “live and active cultures” printed on the label. Regular or Greek is good.
These cultures may stimulate your immune system to help fight diseases.
Choose brands around 90-100 calories per 6 oz serving. This avoids unnecessary added sugar. Flavored or plain works fine.
When it comes to preventing and fighting off colds, vitamin E tends to take a backseat to vitamin C.
However, vitamin E is key to a healthy immune system.
#9 Green tea
Both green and black teas are packed with flavonoids, a type of antioxidant, which has been shown to enhance immune function.
Papaya is another fruit loaded with vitamin C. Papayas also have a digestive enzyme that has anti-inflammatory effects.
