Foods That Support Immunity




Immunity is the biggest need of the body. It creates the base for a healthy living for adults as well as children. Our body has the self-built immunity mechanism that protects the body against several diseases. At times the immunity gets affected due to the attack of certain microorganisms on our body. Medicines help in such cases to fight against them. Apart from medicines, there are certain food items that support the immunity process of the body to the fullest.
