8 Superfoods that will boost your immune system

When we are sick, we are not only low in spirits, but we feel more depressed and lethargic. So if we want to avoid ending up with a cold, the flu or any other illness, we need to think about how to help our immune system to be ready for action.

Not only should we exercise, rest properly and avoid bad habits such as alcohol or tobacco, but it is also essential to maintain a healthy diet. We should eat superfoods, that is, ingredients that are a source of fiber, vitamins and antioxidants, which strengthen our immune system and prevent us from possible diseases.

Today, we bring you a list of 8 superfoods that will help keep your immune system free from threats:

  1. Blueberries

Blueberries are composed of flavonoids, an essential component in the fight against viruses. Flavonoids work with intestinal microbes to increase the ineffectiveness of viral infections.

  1. Citrus

Citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons or limes are rich in vitamin C and polyphenols, which not only strengthen our immune system but also improve its response to possible threats.

  1. Garlic

It is a natural antibacterial with anti-inflammatory properties, helps us to avoid viral diseases and accelerates our recovery process.

  1. Blue fish

Oily fish such as tuna, mackerel or salmon are foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and Zinc, which help the immune system fight the invasion of viruses and bacteria.

  1. Ginger

As a natural source of potassium, niacin, phosphorus and vitamin C, ginger strengthens the immune system and has expectorant, antitussive and antibiotic properties that help fight colds, flu and coughs.

  1. Parsley

Parsley protects cells against aging, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, provides large amounts of vitamin C and beta-carotene, and promotes the elimination of toxins from our body.

  1. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a great ally. It has antioxidant and antibiotic properties, promotes digestion, relieves coughs, protects joints, activates our lymphatic system and improves our defenses.

  1. Probiotic products

Probiotics are microorganisms that exert digestive and protective functions on our organism. They generate vitamins and amino acids, and help us to build a microbiological protective barrier against pathogens.
