When it comes to giving your immune system a boost, there are three main vitamins that will do just that;
Vitamin C is a battle-axe when it comes to fighting illness. This is why you’ll find the supplements go as high as 10,000mg. It’s arguably the best immune-boosting vitamin and during these times, it’s important to have a daily dose. Foods rich in Vitamin C are pineapple, watermelon, oranges, guava, spinach, lemon, papaya, mango, kale, kiwi, turmeric, yellow bell peppers, chili pepper, and strawberries. Believe it or not, watermelon has the highest amount of Vitamin C.
Vitamin B6 helps the biochemical reactions in the immune system. To break it down, what it basically does, is help your body to store energy from carbohydrates and protein in foods. It also helps the body form hemoglobin which is the substance in red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body. Foods rich in Vitamin B6 are bananas, soya beans, oats, spinach, peanuts (groundnuts), milk, and watermelon.
Vitamin E is so good for your body. It’s more than a beauty secret. Full of antioxidants, it helps your body to fight off infections. Foods rich in Vitamin E are almonds, avocado, mango, leafy greens, red bell pepper, sunflower oil, peanut butter, pumpkin and asparagus.
