World Health Day is observed every year on April 7 to spread awareness regarding the right to good health. This global campaign was initiated by the World Health Organisation in 1950. The theme for this year is ‘Building a fairer, healthier world’; fairer because every section of the society should get proper healthcare facilities and excise their right to good health.
Take a look at some healthy food which will help you to build your immune system.
Vitamin C is the key element that helps in building your immune system. It helps in speeding up the process of forming white blood cells that are responsible for fighting against diseases. Have more citrus food such as oranges, lemon, limes, grapefruits, etc. as they are enriched with Vitamin C.
Broccoli is a superfood that possesses numerous Vitamins and minerals along with fibre and several antioxidants. This vegetable is the go-to health food you must consume to keep your immune system fit and strong.
The green leafy veggie is not only packed with Vitamin C but also possess beta carotene and antioxidants that aids in acting as a protective shield in fighting against diseases.
Yogurt is the most convenient and best food to have in summers. Especially the plain variant of yoghurt, which contains Vitamin D that helps in regulating the immune system. For giving it an appetising twist, you can mix honey/ dry fruits/ fresh fruits and enjoy a healthy meal.
Craving for snacks? You can have nuts like almonds instead of unhealthy junks to satisfy those small cravings. Almonds contain healthy fats and vitamin E which is quite beneficial in boosting your immune system.
