      Get the superfoods that fight cold and flu!

      Cold And Flu can be one of the most annoying and distressing ailments that leave you feeling weak. Here’s how you can prevent these by taking the right diet of superfoods.

      Boost your immunity

      Keeping your body healthy and strong helps it fight infections such as cold and flu. Make sure you include adequate quantities of food from every food group. Take foods rich in Vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.

      Put fish on your table

      Oily fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, tuna and mackerel help to reduce the inflammation in your body. When your body is in a chronically inflamed condition, the immune system can’t effectively fight infections.

      Zinc up with oysters

      Oysters are a rich natural source of zinc that fights colds powerfully. Uncooked oysters carry the risk of harboring harmful bacteria, so make sure that you cook oysters before you eat them.

      Garlic packs in a punch

      Garlic is not just a pungent spice, it’s rich in anti-oxidants. Research has shown that those who took garlic contracted fewer colds.

      Fruits that fight colds

      Citrus fruits such as oranges and limes are rich in Vitamin C and these help in preventing colds. Take them at the first onset of cold and you will heal faster. Blueberries contain active antioxidants and boost your immunity in a big way.

      Veggies that work wonders

       Red peppers are high in vitamin C, in fact they are richer in the vitamin than even citrus fruits and they help prevent colds. All mushrooms are loaded with immune-boosting antioxidants besides potassium, B vitamins and fiber. Leafy greens such as kale and argula up your defenses against flu. Carrots and sweet potatoes are rich in beta-carotene which is converted in Vitamin A and keeps the immune system strong.  This vitamin is a great help during cold and flu as this works to keep the mucous membranes that line our nose and throat strong and healthy. This is important as these are our body’s first line of defense.
