With the spread of the new coronavirus, it is essential that we boost our immune system to fight these radicals that causes disease and illnesses. Here are the essential vitamins that can boost our body’s natural defenses.

  • Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins for the immune system and for the health of all tissues in the body. Since vitamin C is water-soluble, our body cannot store it and we need to provide adequate amounts in our food every day. The best sources of this vitamin are fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Vitamin A is highly antiviral and strengthens the immune system. It is found in liver, dairy products, fatty fish, cod liver oil and in plant foods in the form of beta carotene, which the body then converts into vitamin A
  • The B vitamins are important for the white blood cells that play a major role in defending our body against disease.
  • Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates the production of antibodies. Vitamin E is high in wheat germ oil, nuts and seeds.
