Six Foods to Eat for a Stronger Immune System



Yogurt:

 It contains live and active cultures, the probiotics found in yogurt, and other fermented food products have been shown to improve the immune response.

Hummus:

Tahini, a key ingredient in hummus, is made from ground sesame seeds and is loaded with zinc, a key role player for your immune system that may help shorten the duration and severity of symptoms of a cold. Try hummus toast topped with bell pepper strips, abundant in vitamin C, for an extra immune boost.

Sweet Potatoes:

They are extremely rich in vitamin A, a nutrient that plays a role in the development of connective tissue. That connective tissue-that is, your skin-is the first line of defense against invading pathogens.

Tea:

Tea contains a compound that primes the body's immune response against infection. Choose black or green tea for the most benefit.

Mushrooms:

Mushrooms have been shown to increase the production and activity of white blood cells, making for a healthy and humming immune system.

Oatmeal:

Oats are rich in a type of fiber called beta-glucan, which has been shown to have antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.
