Yes, there’s a such things as Flu fighting foods.
Healthy eating is crucial to maintaining good health throughout the Flu season. In fact, it’s one of the best prevention methods against the Flu.
During the Flu season, you should pile up on fresh yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and eat plenty of chicken.
When you eat this type of good products, you can help strengthen your immune system which ultimately can prevent you from suffering flu symptoms.
If you are wondering what’s so great about eating yogurt during the cold season, you need to ask yourself why your doctor recommends drinking plenty of milk.
Diary products like yogurt have probiotics which boost the body’s immune system.
To identify whether your food products have probiotics, look at the seal for a statement that says: ” live active culture,”. This means probiotics are included in the good product.
You should also purchase products like milk and orange juice to receive a good amount of vitamin D.
If your body has low amounts of vitamin D, you’re more likely to experience respiratory infections and colds throughout Fall and Winter.
As for garlic, this vegetable can help reduce your stress level and make your body more resistant to infections.
We recommend making a homemade health drink once a day to help you fight the flu. A popular drink is the Creamy Orange Shake. This shake features orange juice, fat free yogurt and vanilla. You’ll gain plenty of energy from this shake and your taste buds will thank you all at the same time.
