Antioxidant foods & Probiotic drinks
Antioxidant foods are fruit and vegetables that are bright in colour such as blueberries, cranberries, tomatoes, peppers, spinach, kidney beans, etc. Foods high in antioxidants can help fight heart disease, cancer, aging and maintain your immune system. These foods can help fight the germs that we can all get exposed to during the winter, keeping your immune levels high and allowing you to fend off colds and flu.
Probiotic drinks or natural yogurt is a good way to replenish certain strains of bacteria and by eating these can lower the risk of upper respiratory tract infections.
If you feel a cold starting then try boosting your immune system with these foods and / or vitamin C and zinc combined with probiotic drinks and / or natural yogurt and it might help keep the cold at bay.
