Enjoy fatty fish: Salmon and sardines are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which play a very positive role in immune enhancement. Fish are also known to be a good source of zinc and vitamin B6 that further help enhance your immunity. Do not forget to eat your beans: Beans are a very good source of vitamin B6 and iron that are both good immunity boosters. Snack on Almonds and walnuts: A good source of vitamin E that fight off the harmful effect of free radicals. These nuts are also rich in vitamin B6 and healthy fats. Add Flaxseed to your diet: A rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, you can use it in breads or muffins, either as whole seeds or ground. A good way to enjoy it would be to sprinkle some on your breakfast cereal and milk in the morning. Have a yogurt fortified with Probiotics: New studies have found that Probiotics play an effective role in boosting the body’s natural defences.
