Healthy FoodsFall will be here before you know it, and with autumn comes the beginning of cold and flu season. But you don't have to settle for getting sick each time a bug goes around. Your diet, combined with frequent hand washing, plays a big role in your body's immune defenses. Try eating these ten foods to shore up your immunity.
  1. Blueberries and raspberries: These colorful berries are very high in antioxidants, which help rid your body of toxic free radicals. Even better, they are lower in sugar than many other fruits.
  2. Citrus: Lemons, limes, oranges and other citrus fruits contain lots of vitamin C, which can help enhance your immune system and reduce cold symptoms by over 20 percent.
  3. Coconuts: Coconuts and extra virgin, non-GMO coconut oil contain the same compounds found in breast milk that build up babies' immune systems. This fruit is also great for your metabolism and thyroid health.
  4. Mushrooms: A compound in reishi, shiitake and maitake mushrooms is known for its cold- and flu-fighting power. Apart from supporting the immune system, these mushrooms also help fight off infection.
  5. Ginger: Ginger has a multitude of immunity benefits, including being a cough suppressant, pain reliever and fever reliever. A common way to take ginger is brewing it in hot tea.
  6. Garlic: Garlic is antibacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal, but these properties wear off within one hour of smashing a clove. Prepare your meals with fresh garlic for an immunity boost.
  7. Honey: Honey has antimicrobial properties to help fight various infections. Additionally, a spoonful will coat your throat for a natural soothing effect.
  8. Black Pepper: Freshly cracked black peppercorns contain anti-fever and pain-relieving compounds that may also help reduce a drippy nose.
  9. Tea: Green Matcha tea and Tulsi tea are both extremely rich in antioxidants for immune health. In fact, Matcha tea contains 17 times the antioxidant content as blueberries.
  10. Fermented foods: Fermented foods — such as kefir, kimchee, miso, pickles, sauerkraut and sugar-free yogurt — are full of the good bacteria that your gut needs to maintain proper digestive and immune health.
