Cold Seasons Here: How can you Combat Cold Season?

Boost immunities by including healthy whole foods in your diet which are abundant in “anti-infective” vitamin A and Carotenoids.

How does this family of nutrients benefit the body?

Vitamin A and Carotenoids help block the body’s susceptibility to infection through the skin and mucous membranes (nose and throat). These nutrients also help build protective mucous membranes and enhance white blood cell function to relegate germs.

What are good sources of vitamin A and Carotenoids?

Animal foods including egg yolks, goat’s milk, butter, shrimp, salmon, cheese and yogurt have Pro vitamin A. Carotenoids are found in plant foods and can be recognized by their color: yellow, green, orange, red and so forth. Eating several portions of seasonal organic vegetables daily will ensure you’re giving your immune system help to fight pathogens that cause cold symptoms.
