Boost Your Immune System With These Ten Foods

Boost Your Immune System With These Ten Foods

Your immune system is responsible for protecting and defending your body from all the viruses and bacteria that you encounter every day. Therefore, proper nutrition is key for your body to be strong and without health complications. Know here the foods that will help you strengthen your immune system.

Why is the immune system important?

Not only does it protect your body, but it helps to immediately fight against viruses or bacteria that affect your body and impede the development of daily activities.

These viruses or bacteria could be contracted on a day-to-day basis, either by not having adequate sanitary conditions, by a disease that afflicts you or simply by an agent in the air, which is most of the cases.

Remember that your body is not always prepared, so it is important to strengthen your immune system with a healthy diet. It is important to include fruits, vegetables, protein and drink water to have a strong immune system. That is why here we tell you some of the foods that will help you reinforce it.

So, which foods should you eat to boost your immune system?

Eating a balanced diet can help you stay well. Try adding the following foods to help boost the immune system:

1. Onion

Did you know that onion is the best natural remedy against respiratory infections? And even more in cases of pharyngitis, laryngitis and lung infections. You can consume it cooked to relieve respiratory conditions such as congestion in the bronchi and raw to relieve cough, as it helps to cough up mucus.

2. Kiwi

This fruit contains trace elements and vitamin C. It is also full of antioxidants and increases your body's resistance to disease. Kiwi is one of the most complete fruits that you can find and due to its high content of vitamin C, it is an excellent fruit to strengthen your immune system.

3. Yogurt

Do you like yogurt? Do you usually consume it in your breakfasts? If not, you have to incorporate it into your daily diet! Its contribution in calcium and the good bacteria it provides helps balance the digestive system.

Remember that consuming a cup of yogurt (low-fat) daily strengthens the bacterial flora and therefore reduces the risk of gastrointestinal infections.

4. Carrots

Foods in beta carotene, such as orange vegetables, are a great contribution of vitamin A for your body. This helps keep your mucous membranes healthy, which are a barrier to infection.

5. Mushrooms

 Mushrooms are a nutritious as well as a delicious addition to your recipe. They can help improve your health in several ways. They reduce the risk of contracting diseases by improving the immune system's response of the body and increase the production of white cells in the blood. This helps increase their metabolism, eliminating toxins and preventing free radical damage.

6. 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.

7. Ginger

Ginger tea is one of the popular beverages 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 number 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.

8. Almonds

Vitamin C might get a lot of the attention when it comes to immune support, but Vitamin E is also important. It helps protect cells from damage and gives them a longer life—important benefits for the immune system. Vitamin E is fat soluble, and nuts – particularly almonds – are full of good fats (unlike processed foods) that are packed with Vitamin E.

9. Spinach

Spinach is one of the most nutritious foods packed full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The leafy, green vegetable is high in vitamin C, beta carotene, and other essential nutrients that support the infection-fighting ability of your immune system and reduce the risk of several diseases.

10. Red bell peppers

Red bell peppers aren’t just rich in vitamin C but also a great source of beta carotene. Adding them to your daily diet to strengthen your immune system, keep your eyes and skin healthy.

You already know, staying healthy and eating fruits and vegetables will make your immune system strong enough to protect you from viruses and diseases. What are you waiting to start preventing!

मैं पेशेवर काम कर रहा हूं, मेरा जीवन बहुत व्यस्त है। अगर आप मेरी रोजाना की दिनचर्या के बारे में जानना चाहते हैं, तो मेरे ब्लॉग को रोजाना पढ़ें।
आज शुक्रवार सुबह, मैं लगभग 5:30 बजे उठा, फिर बालकनी में गया और देखा कि मौसम बहुत अच्छा है। लॉन्ग ड्राइव के लिए 3 महीने के लॉकडाउन के बाद अचानक प्लान किया। फिर मैंने अपनी कार की चाबी ली और सुबह 6 बजे के करीब नीचे चला गया। मैंने अपनी कार शुरू की और लगभग 100 किमी के लॉग ड्राइव के लिए चला गया। मैंने इस 3 महीने में बहुत सारे बदलाव देखे, पर्यावरण बहुत साफ है, सड़क खाली थी इसलिए मैंने अपनी ड्राइविंग का आनंद लिया। मैंने 25 किमी की ड्राइविंग के बाद एक जगह पर कार रोकी, फिर खुले वातावरण में 1 किमी दौड़ लगाई। बहुत समय बाद मैंने खुली जगह पर दौड़ लगाई। जाते समय सड़क खाली थी, लेकिन घर लौटते समय सड़क पर कुछ लोगों और वाहनों को देखा। आउटिंग के तीन घंटे बाद आखिरकार 9 बजे के आसपास घर पहुंचा। फिर स्नान किया कुछ ब्रेड स्लाइस के साथ एक कप चाय ली और मेरी सुबह की गतिविधि समाप्त की।
