Our Immune system guards our body from bacterias and viruses which causes various diseases. Immune system develops from child till the puberty age (age of 14-18 years). Once we reach puberty, our immune system stops developing. Our Immune system uses the information collected during this period to fight the diseases.
So it becomes essential that we increase our immunity after puberty. Immunity can be increase by consuming foods which are high in vitamin C, B-Complex, Vitamin E, Carotenoids (beta carotene, lycopene), minerals like Selenium and Zinc, pre and Probiotics, some Phyto-nutrients and antioxidants like Co-enzyme Q10 and Dimethylglycine. It is essential to consume foods like citrus fruits (rich in Vitamin C), leafy vegetables (rich in Caratenoids), nuts, fruits and vegetables high in fiber, yogurt (source of probiotics) and garlic (essential Phyto-nutrient for immunity).
