How to boost your Immune System to fight COVID-19

Keeping yourself healthy is a must even without an outbreak. Improving your health can be done in multiple ways such as proper eating and exercising. For starters, here are some food choices you could turn to to help boost your immune system.

1. Citrus Fruits

Everyone knows this, Vitamin C helps you produce white blood cells which then protects you from flu. So get yourself an ample supply of oranges, tangerines, grapes, lemons, or even calamansi from your backyard!

2. Red bell pepper

A shocker for most, did you know that red bell pepper contains double the vitamins citrus fruits has? Yep, each ounce of bell pepper gets you double protection compared to citrus fruits. Plus, it helps keep your skin glowing too.

3. Chicken

Eating poultry helps you increase the production of Vitamin B-6, a vitamin known to increase your red blood cell count.

4. Garlic

Garlic is seen in an everyday filipino viand. It is known to lower blood pressure and boost your immune system linked with the concentration of sulfur-containing compounds such as allicin.

We see what you are leaning towards - no pizza, burgers, and chips on the list! 😱
