Nutritionist Manisha Mehta writes about foods that help build a stronger immune system to fight infections lurking around
Strong immunity is a result of a healthy lifestyle; plenty of sleep, well-balanced diet, regular exercise, and by washing your hands regularly. Leading a healthy lifestyle can strengthen your immunity quickly as far as you make the effort and stick to your routine.
Immune system is a group of cells that protect the body against infections. There are two types – innate and adaptive immunity present in our body. Innate immunity is something we are born with. When our body is invaded by a virus, innate immunity immediately acts on it by producing extra mucus and by rising the body temperature – fever. Adaptive immunity on the other hand is gained as we grow and combat infections/diseases, vaccination. Adaptive immunity identifies the virus and produces specific antibodies to fight and eliminate from the body.
Revive your immunity by incorporating these foods to your daily diet.
