Building up your immune system for winter
With the cold, COVID and the flu going around these days, it’s important to make sure you’re taking all the right precautions to stay safe. That includes building up your immune system to help fight off germs.
To help build up your immune system, it’s important to eat a healthy diet, which includes lots of fruits and vegetables.
You also want to make sure you’re getting enough Vitamin C, zinc, selenium, and iron.
Dr. Julia Zumpano with Cleveland Clinic recommends getting these vitamins and minerals from your foods, and not through taking supplements.
However, if you do, be sure to consult with your healthcare provider first.
Finally, another easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet is by making smoothies.
