The immune system is the body’s natural defense network. It is comprised of many organs, cells, and proteins that work together to protect against outside viruses, bacteria, and other unwanted invaders. When functioning correctly, the immune system identifies which cells are yours and which are foreign. It then organizes to kill any invaders that could cause the body harm. Your immune system does this complex work naturally, but, like anything, it requires a healthy environment in order to thrive. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help bolster your immune system.
Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions, which can help protect our bodies. Vitamin C is known to help reduce common cold symptoms as well as shorten the duration and severity of those symptoms. Vitamin C can an be found in many fresh fruits and vegetables. I am loving this Kale Stir Fry. It is packed full of Vitamin C with approximately 170g. Try out the recipe and let me know what you think!
