SUPERFOODS FOR IMMUNITY

Dr Rohini Patil MBBS & Nutritionist in an interview with HT Digital shares a list of immunity boosters to support your health.

1. Almonds: Not judging them by their size, these tiny nuts pack a powerful punch when it comes to supporting your immune system. Almonds are a source of iron which is a fundamental element for the normal development of the immune system. Packed with Vitamin B2, Vitamin E, magnesium, copper and phosphorus, almonds yield tons of energy and can support the body in illnesses at bay.

2. Citrus fruits: Next up, we have citrus fruits like oranges and lemons. Loaded with vitamin C, these fruits are essential for maintaining a strong immune system. Vitamin C helps your body produce white blood cells, which are vital for fighting off infections.

3. Yoghurt: Don't overlook yoghurt. Packed with probiotics, yogurt helps keep your gut healthy, which in turn strengthens your immune system. Adding yogurt to your daily routine can help keep you feeling great all year round.

4. Garlic: The spice isn't just for flavour, it's also a powerful immune booster. Rich in allicin, garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties that can help your body ward off infections and stay healthy.

5. Berries: Berries like strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries are bursting with antioxidants, which help protect your cells from damage caused by harmful free radicals. Including berries in your diet can help reduce inflammation and support a healthy immune system.

6. Leafy greens: Lastly, don't forget to load up on leafy greens like spinach and kale. These veggies are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support overall health and immunity. Adding them to your meals is an easy way to give your immune system a boost.
