8 Immune Boosting Foods You Should Be Eating
If you want to help support your immune system, be sure your diet includes plenty of natural vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant plays a central role in the repair and regeneration of tissues, and helps protect cells throughout the body. Good food sources of vitamin C include:
- Pink grapefruit
Be sure to err on the side of organic forms of these foods, as several are on the Dirty Dozen list from the Environmental Working Group. You may also consider supplemental vitamin C. While it is available in many forms, Dr. Weil suggests using a simple vitamin C supplement derived from D-glucose, taken with a meal to prevent stomach upset.
