I want a healthy immune system; do you want the same? I think everyone wants that. At this pandemic time, everyone is craving for two things, better pay and better health and both of them require awareness and action. The bug which causes COVID-19 gets into your body, your body puts up its own defense. That defense is your immune system and the army you have inside your body are your white blood cells.


So, your first action in defense is choosing a healthy lifestyle. You have seen fighting forces, their army marches on someplace. Just like that, the immune system army marches on its stomach. Healthy immune needs a regular intake of good nutrition.

Our diet plays an important role to make our immune system stronger to fight against any toxins and infections. Sadly, sometimes it failed because so many of us don’t eat enough fresh fruits, vegetables, and other vitamins. Most of us think eating one-time healthy food will help them but we have to keep ourselves healthy year-round. If you have got a healthy immune system, look after it and it will look after you.
