Foods That Can Help Boost Your Immune System

With the coronavirus outbreak, people have taken hygiene and their health more seriously than ever before. The COVID-19 disease is highly transmissible and has proven deadly to those with compromised or weak immune systems.

The body’s immune system is its internal defense against harmful invaders such as viruses and bacteria. The strength of your immune system depends mostly on your lifestyle and diet. If you don’t eat nutritious food and don’t observe good hygiene practices, you’d be more susceptible to contracting infectious diseases.

Think of your immune system as a soldier defending your body. You wouldn’t send it off to fight without giving it the weapons or tools it needs to do a good job, would you?

As it’s your immune system’s job to protect and defend your against the myriad of illnesses and diseases that are itching to make you sick, it’s your job to make sure that your immune system has the resources it needs to get its work done. The best way to keep your immune system strong is by feeding your body with the nutrition it needs.

The Foods That Matter Most

While COVID-19 has taken the spotlight, it shouldn’t be the only disease you should look out for. Everywhere, there are harmful viruses and other microorganisms that can make you sick, some of them probably even worse than the coronavirus.

Do your body a favor by giving it what it needs to ensure you’re well protected from the inside. Take a look at these three foods that can supercharge your immune system.

  1. More mushrooms!

Keep your immune system in tip-top shape by eating more mushrooms. Selenium, riboflavin, and niacin are just some of the nutrients found in mushrooms that can help build up your immunity. You don’t need to eat them raw or by themselves since you can combine them with other dishes. Grilled, roasted, or added to soup, mushrooms can spice up your meals.

  1. Mouth-watering watermelon

With heaps of vitamins and low calories, watermelon is the immune-boosting fruit that you’ve been looking for that won’t be too heavy on your body as well. Power up your immune function with the vitamins and nutrients loaded in watermelons.

  1. Yogurt

Rich in probiotics and vitamins, yogurt will give your immune system an extra kick. It helps detoxify your body and aids in digestion, too. If you’re concerned about the calorie intake, then you can opt for low-fat yogurt.
