FIVE FRUIT COMBINATION TO BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Let me blow your mind!
All Citrus fruits are immune boosters.
This is because they are very rich in vitamin C, which is a great immune booster nutrient. Med Monatsschr Pharm on Feb. 2009 reported that several cells of the immune system can indeed accumulate vitamin C and needs it to perform their task, especially “phagocytes and t-cells”. Thus, a vitamin C deficiency results in a reduced resistance against certain pathogens whilst a higher supply enhance several immune system parameters.
However, amidst the numerous citrus fruits, there are five you shouldn’t ignore.
Apples are very rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber. According to Laura Floures, a Nutritionist based in San Diego. ” Apples are high in polyphenols, which functions as an antioxidants. These polyphenols are found in both the skin of the apple as well as in the meat. So to get the greatest amount of benefits, eat the skin of the apple”.
Strawberry is another fascinating fruit immune boosters. A chief source of Vitamin C, Phenolic antioxidants, Anthocyanin which is responsible for its bright color and Folate (vitamin B9).
Andrea Gabrick wrote on WebMB “Strawberries -just one serving -about eight Strawberries – provides more vitamins than an orange”. I know you’r really wondering if it is true. Oh! Yes, very true.
LEMONS AND ORANGES.
Amazingly, these two have most things in common. Like other Citrus fruits, are an excellent source of Vitamin C. Lemons and oranges contain some phytochemical that makes them unique, most especially the Flavonoids, like Hesperentin, Narigin and Naringenin. These nutrients can act as immune system modulator, antioxidants as well as frees radicals scavengers.
Among the fruits I have already mentioned, Strawberry being an exception, Tomatoes has a unique reddish color. It contains a chief phyochemical that is very peculiar to it known as lycopen. Despite Tomatoes being a major dietary source of lycopen possess high amount of vitamin C, K and potassium.
But wait!, if all these Five fruit can have this great nutrient respectively, then think of how the combination will look like and how powerful it can be?
