Immune-boosting foods that everyone should consume
One carrot provides enough beta carotene for your body to convert into 1480mg of vitamin A (far more than the recommended daily intake of 800mg).
Red and green peppers have twice as much vitamin C as oranges. Vitamin C is necessary for a healthy immune system.
Kale is another vegetable that has more vitamin C than citrus fruits, as well as vitamin A (from beta carotene) and antioxidant vitamin E.
Garlic is said to keep vampires away, but it may also help you fight the common cold.
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, we need enough protein for our immune systems, especially for healing and rehabilitation.
Not only do greens, reds, and oranges boost your immune system; mushrooms are also high in selenium and B vitamins.
