Healthy foods to strengthen the immune system .. With a German expert recipe
German nutritionist Christina Esser confirmed that the immune system can be strengthened through healthy nutrition, especially foods rich in vitamins and minerals.
The expert explained that zinc has an antioxidant effect, that is, it eliminates harmful particles, and it also has a positive effect on the growth and number of some immune cells.
The rich food sources of zinc are meat, seafood such as oysters, whole grain products, and chicken soup.
Vitamin C plays a big role in strengthening the immune system;
It works to activate macrophages, which are one of the important weapons of the immune system in the fight against diseases.
Food sources rich in this vitamin are citrus fruits such as oranges and tangerines, bell peppers, berries, and Brussels sprouts.
Iron is of great importance for the immune system;
Its deficiency causes a decrease in the number of immune cells and antibodies.
The body can better absorb iron from animal food sources such as red meat and fish, while plant sources such as legumes and whole grain products should be taken with foods rich in vitamin C such as sweet pepper, to help the body absorb it better.
