Certain foods may be helpful for boosting the immune system and preventing colds and the flu. Here's a look at five types of nutrients that the immune system needs to perform and which foods to find them.
1. Vitamin C
An essential nutrient, vitamin C acts as an antioxidant. There's some evidence that vitamin C may be particularly helpful in boosting the immune systems of people under major stress. To increase your vitamin C intake, add these foods to your diet:
- citrus fruits and juices (such as orange and grapefruit)
