5 Immune-boosting Foods to Incorporate into Your Daily Diet.

A healthy immune system is what makes the difference between getting sick, say, once a year, and coming down with colds and other illnesses on a regular basis. The virus has certainly taught us all a lesson about the importance of immunity. Falling ill isn’t a risk you want to take these days. So here are 5 immune-boosting foods you can add to your diet right away.

  1. Blueberries & Acai Berries

These exotic berries have a delicious flavour and taste, and they’ve effortlessly paved their way into our plates. They contain a type of flavonoid called anthocyanin, which has antioxidant properties that can help boost a person’s immune system. People who eat foods rich in flavonoids are known to be less likely to get an upper respiratory tract infection or common cold. Pretty convincing if you ask us.

  1. Turmeric

More than just a delicious kick to your dinner time meal - this spice comes power packed with powerful compound curcumin. (The same compound lends turmeric its signature vibrant orange-yellow colour.) It activates the production of T-cells, which are the main cells fighting for your health in your immune system. Adding turmeric to your diet helps boost immune cell activity and fight against anti-inflammatory issues, too. Pro tip? Add the newly discovered golden latte to your daily regime!
