Food You Need To Eat To Boost Your Immune System
A strong immune system is very important to help you stay healthy to fight off viruses. Specially during the global pandemic (COVID 19) it is particularly important to focus on your mind and health. Depending on your lifestyle try to put in at least about 20 minutes of movement and meditation everyday.. It could be as simple as walking up the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Remember Nelson Mandela did it in a 8 x 7 foot concrete cell. So even if you’re under quarantine there is no reason for you not to be jumping up and down in one place to get your heart rate up.
Keep in mind there are a few types of food you need to add to your diet to increase your immune system (don’t worry not all at once)
1 – Citrus fruits (seriously eat the fruit not the tablet) – grapefruit, oranges, lemons, limes
2 – Red Bell Peppers – bell peppers has more vitamin C than Citrus fruit
3 – Broccoli – they are supercharged with vitamins and minerals and many other antioxidants
4 – Garlic – go ahead and add it to everything you eat (might as well word off vampires)
5- Ginger – Add it to your tea, food – it’s great for sore throat and nausea.
6- Spinach – has tones of antioxidants
7 – Yogurt – the yogurts that has live and active cultures like Greek yogurt is the best
8 – Almonds/ sunflower seeds – provides vitamin E which is important to regulate and maintain the immune system
9 – Turmeric – Immune Booster and reduces arthritis
10 – Green Tea – Keeps your healthy and backed with antioxidants
