Winter: support your immune defences with food
Discover all the food allies of your health to prevent the winter infections or to get back on your feet after the seasonal flu!
We all know that winter is the season for colds, flu and minor ailments. Considering the many seasonal flu and cough prevention solutions we might adopt, focusing on nutrition and on certain foods capable of strengthening our body is a crucial step to enjoy a healthy and dynamic winter!
Are you curious about which foods your diet should favour? Here are some tips for you.
More fibre for everybody
Fibre-rich foods, such as whole-grain cereal and legumes, favour efficient bowel function and, therefore, the proper function of the whole body. This season is ideal to try out all types of soups, winter’s comfort food!
Dried fruit, what a passion
Hazelnuts, almonds, cashew nuts… have 3-4 a day (do not take too many!) to replenish your levels of omega 3 and omega 6, which stimulate correct immune system function. Dried fruit is also known for improving mood, and a good mood is essential to face the long grey winter days!
Let’s not forget the fluids
Drinking at least two litres of water a day is of the utmost importance not only in summer but all year round. Make it easy by flavouring water with mint, ginger or lemon for a delicious drink that also stimulates digestion.
Make room for vitamins
Who are the actual allies of wellness? Vitamins: they strengthen the immune system, have a moisturising and anti-inflammatory action, favour the elimination of excessive free radicals and protect mucous tissue. 100 grams of kiwi, for instance, contain 85 mg of vitamin C, a good reason to take large amounts of it, as long as it’s Jingold!
