After couples of snowstorms and blizzards in New York City, it seems that winter has gone and spring has finally come. However, we can still feel the great temperature differences between the day and night. In early spring, the temperature fluctuates a lot; we need to strengthen our immune system so as not to catch a cold. This week, let us find out some ways to naturally build and boost our immune system. This is because immune system is responsible for fighting foreign invaders like pathogenic bacteria and viruses to your body! 

In spring, having a balanced diet helps boost immune system. We know that almost all whole grains, vegetables and fruits can serve as excellent sources of at least some of these vitamins, but some vegetables are particularly beneficial since they are excellent sources of many of these immune-supporting vitamins. In particular, spinach is a great source of beta-carotene that boosts immune system and chlorophyll that cleans your blood. But make sure to blanch it in boiling water (than soaking it for a long time) to keep beta-carotene. Water parsley, which is in season (from March to April), contains plenty of Vitamin C that has detox effect, as it strengthens the functioning of liver. Having great effect in boosting immunity, water parsley is known to treat allergic rhinitis, not to mention cold and viral diseases. Garlic, which contains powerful sulfur compounds with antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral properties, spice up your meals and immune system at the same time. Moreover, other vegetables such as romaine lettuce (vitamins B1, B2, C and folate), cauliflower (vitamin C, folate, vitamin B6, pantothenic), crimini mushrooms (vitamin B2, niacin, pantothenic acid) and red bell peppers (vitamin B6) are great source of substances that boost immune system. Aside from vegetables, excellent sources of vitamin B12 also include sardines, salmon, tuna, cod, lamb, scallops, shrimp, and beef. 

Why do fruits and vegetables promote healthy immune function? This is because they provide antioxidants that help maintain healthy tissue around the sites of infection and support healing.

When free radicals and other damaging molecules are generated at sites of infection and inflammation, we need enough antioxidants to fight the active oxygen (free radicals).  This is why we need to drink BIOCERA Antioxidant Alkaline Water.
