With all the craziness surrounding COVID-19, it’s not a bad idea to give your immune system a fighting chance by adding a few things to your diet. Here are 7 foods many people believe can help.
Cinnamon: This spice has tremendous anti-viral properties. Cinnamon boiled in water can actually treat the common cold as well as the flu, and even gum related problems.
Garlic: Garlic is not only good to keep vampires out of sight, it is one of the world’s strongest anti-viral foods. Research shows that garlic has the potential to either kill or cripple as many as 72 different strains of bacteria and icky viruses. So go ahead and start throwing garlic in all your meals, just in case.
Foods rich in Folic Acids: Spinach, broccoli, and other leafy greens rich in vitamin B are fantastic sources of folic acid. Consuming folic acid actually boosts white blood cell count in order to fight off different viruses.
