COVID-19: Boosting Your Immunity With Fruits

By Egomdi Ogechukwu Judith (CEO, HiFresh Fruits N More)

At a time like this when we are all lockeddown, it’s highly important that we stay safe and yet be mindful of our health.

I know many of us will be tempted to eat so many junks as well as gain loads of weight. However, we should not forget that it’s important to maintain a good body weight. One of the ways to achieve this is to make sure we add fruits to our meals especially at this time of coronavirus.

The immune system is the first line of defence of our body against an alien microorganism entering the body.

The truth is that, the stronger your immune system, the less will be your chances of falling ill at this time.

A healthy immune system reduces the chances of viral infection and flu. This can be achieved with a daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, rich in essential immune-building nutrients.

With little change in your diet and routine, you can ensure that your immune system is strong enough to protect you against the #covid-19 infection.

Consumption of fruits containing Vitamins A,B6,C,D and E can boost and help increase the strength of the immune system.

Vitamin C is the biggest booster of all and fruits rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties can also help boost the immune system.

They include;

Vitamin C super-rich fruits &veggies
