Food That Helps Boost Your Immune System!

This list of foods will protect you from common colds and flu.

1. Green Tea- It does not only fights against colds and flu – it’s also packed with antioxidants and anti-cancer agents, and makes it harder for viruses to replicate inside your body. So, you’re less likely to get sick.

2. Yogurt- he type with live bacteria cultures lines your intestines, and helps fight off infections, and attacks by harmful bacteria.

3. Turmeric- the spice found in yellow curry. It’s packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory, and has strong cold and flu-fighting properties. In Chinese and Indian medicine, it has been used as an antiseptic for cuts, burns and bruises.

4. Garlic- It’s packed with immunity-boosting sulfur compounds – the stuff that makes garlic stink. It fights against all kinds of infections, including bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic. Garlic also enhances your immune system, slows tumor growth, and helps guard your cells from everyday wear and tear.

5. Red Bell Peppers- They’re packed with nutrients and immunity-boosting phytochemicals, and have twice the vitamin C of oranges. Studies show that eating vitamin C-rich foods can shorten the length of your cold, and reduce the severity of your symptoms.

6. Oregano- A staple in spaghetti sauce, oregano is a disinfectant. It is also packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory, and can protect you against colds, flu, fevers, indigestion and infections.
