5 FOODS THAT CAN BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY

The key to a disease-free life lies in following a perfectly balanced diet that satiates your taste buds and also your health needs. The urban lifestyle, characterized by irregular eating habits and sleeping hours, has made us more susceptible to minor ailments and frequent illnesses.

In order to strengthen the germ-fighting capacity of our body, we must follow a nutritious diet. Low immunity can weaken the body’s defense mechanism and become a major hurdle in our personal and professional life.

Thus, we have enlisted expert-recommended foods that can enhance your body’ immunity and
improve your overall health as well.

Garlic: Garlic contains antibacterial and antiviral properties and proves effective against various ailments. It can stimulate the generation of white blood cells in the body which leads to a stronger immune system. It is rich in antioxidants and helps the body to ward off germs and infections. Garlic is usually chopped into various kinds of Indian curries and even continental dishes. They also add an amazing flavor to the food and make it more appetizing.

Ginger: Ginger tea is quite a popular beverage among the Indians and it entails a whole lot of additional benefits for the body’s immune system. Just like garlic, it can fight off harmful free radicals owing to the high amount of antioxidants in it. Apart from that it also gives off a zesty aroma and adds an exciting flavor to whichever dish it is added to.

Broccoli and bell peppers: Phytochemicals present in broccoli help strengthen our immune system. Besides, it’s a rich source of lutein that acts as a potential antioxidant. Also, richly colored veggies such as red and yellow bell peppers contain the powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene that further enhance the body’s immunity.

Lean meat: Lean meat and skinless chicken are high in protein, contain low fat and retain a good amount of zinc in them. This mineral is instrumental in boosting the production of white blood cells and T-cells. Thus consumption of these kind of meat can enhance your body’s defense mechanism against various diseases. Moreover during the flu season when the possibilities of infections are high, it is always great to feast on a bowl of steamy chicken soup.

Yogurt: Probiotics are live good bacteria that is present in yogurt. Studies indicate that probiotics can strengthen the immune system of the body and also prevent bowel disorders. The live cultures in yogurt such as lactobacillus can protect the intestinal tract against digestive disorders. It also increases the body’s resistance to immune-related diseases such as cancer.

Having immunity-boosting foods can keep several health afflictions at bay. Thus, it is very important to opt for nutritious food products that keeps our body healthy and adequately nourished.
