Superfoods That Help The Common Cold
So it's that time of year ... change of weather means common cold.
You can actually help prevent that with these superfoods. Check out this list I found on phillyvoice.com.
Turmeric in particular is known for its high concentration of antioxidants — substances that protect your body’s cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
Much like turmeric, omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in fish like salmon, tuna, and mackerel, contain healing anti-inflammatory properties that are ideal for combatting the common cold.
According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, chicken soup helps to prevent inflammatory white cells from moving to other parts of your body, which can alleviate your cold symptoms.
Garlic contains allicin, a sulfuric compound that fights bacteria and infection.
Fresh fruits and vegetables
Vitamins C and E are particularly helpful when it comes to bolstering your immune system.
