Current COVID crisis has generated a lot of interest in immunity, especially natural and innate immunity. One way to improve it is by eating right.
Below is a very opportune guest post by Palak Nagpal, who is a nutritionist based out of Delhi, India.
Immunity isn’t built overnight nor does eating a superfood alone help you to build it.
I know there is a lot of information out there so I’ll keep this short and crisp. Keep checking off the things you are including in your nutrition plan every day and make space for those which you aren’t. Here’s a list of important foods particularly important for boosting our immunity:
- Load up on Vitamin C
Sources: Amla/gooseberry, lemon, orange, kiwi, guava, black pepper, bell pepper
2. Vitamin E is the most well-known antioxidant which fights infection and keeps our immune system strong. Nuts & seeds are rich in Vitamin E.
