Winter’s the most common time to get the common ailments and illnesses that will keep you in hibernation this season. No one enjoys the aches, chills, and losing the ability to breathe out of their stuffy nose. Before you start sneezing, check out our list of healthy super foods that can boost up your immune system and stop sicknesses from taking over!
Apple Cider Vinegar
Although this isn’t the tastiest of treatments, apple cider vinegar has multiple health benefits. It boosts your metabolism and sooths a sore throat, which can put an end to your harsh cough before it gets worse! To make the experience more pleasant, try mixing it with some lemon juice, cinnamon, or some honey.
Citrus Fruits are filled with Vitamin C, which can stop a cold dead in its tracks in the beginning stages. Plus, there’s plenty of delicious ways to eat or drink these favorite fruits, such as oranges slices, orange juice, grapefruits, or flavoring your water with some lemons and limes!
Sweet Potatoes are good sources of Vitamins A-D, which can fight off small illnesses, such as a cold, and the carotenoids in Vitamin A can prevent cancer. As a bonus, these nutrients also keep your skin looking young and healthy!
Oily fishes are rich in omega 3 that can fight off colds. Of the oily fish, we recommended salmon. If you’re already starting to feel sick, the Vitamin D levels in salmon can help restore your immune system more quickly and get you feeling better faster!
Bacteria can be good for you! The bacteria in Greek yogurt builds up your immune system, and reduce the likeliness of getting an infection. Combine your Greek yogurt with some citrus fruits to create a scrumptious and super food snack, or make a Greek yogurt dipping sauce with baked sweet potato fries. Yum!
