Ways to Fight The Flu Through Food By Carina Sohaili

Nobody likes being sick. Start building up your immune system by incorporating these foods into your diet so you can be strong and vibrant through the holidays.

Vitamin-C boosting foods: red bell peppers, sweet potatoes, citrus fruits, dark leafy greens and strawberries.

Get your minerals, especially zinc. Some foods high in Zinc are peanuts, pumpkin seeds, squash, garbanzo beans, sesame seeds, dark chocolate and garlic. Go for some dark chocolate on Halloween since it is right around the corner.

Carotene rich foods help support the thymus gland (which supports your immune system). Colored vegetables such as carrots and squash are great choices as well as dark leafy greens such as spinach and kale.

Clean out your digestive track with live cultures of bacteria found in yogurt or kefir. FAGE Greek yogurt is my personal favorite.
