Immune Health

Good nutrition is essential to a strong immune system, which may offer protection from seasonal illness and other health problems. There is no one specific food that can prevent illness, but there are nutrients that play a role in the immune system. Vitamin A helps protect against infections by keeping the respiratory system healthy. Vitamin A can be found in sweet potatoes, spinach, carrots, mango, broccoli and tomatoes. Vitamin C supports the immune system by stimulating the formation of antibodies. Include more sources of this healthy vitamin by choosing fruits such as oranges, grapefruit and tangerines. Zinc has many functions, such as helping wounds heal. Zinc can be found in lean meat, poultry, seafood, milk, whole grain products, beans, seeds and nuts. Focusing on nutrient-rich foods and healthy lifestyle behaviors can help you and your family stay ahead.
