5 Immunity Boosting Products

To help you fortify yourself against seasonal ailments like cough and cold, here are five products handpicked for their immunity boosting ingredients: 1. Ashwagandha Alternatively known as Indian Ginseng or Winter Cherry, Ashwagandha has long been a part of chyawanprash and other vitality-providing traditional concoctions. The literal meaning of ashwagandha in Sanskrit is "smell of horse" and it is believed that those who consume it on a regular basis have vitality and strength of a horse. Apart from boosting immunity, ashwagandha also facilitates good sleep. 2. Amla Juice Amla juice when consumed with honey acts as a revitalising agent. Apart from being a rich source of antioxidants amla juice is also enriched with essential micronutrients. Consider sipping on its goodness daily for detoxing and revving up your immunity level. Amla juice is great for skin, eyesight, hair, heart as well as diabetes. 3. Organic Honey Ditch refined sugar and turn to the natural ways of sweetening your daily meals. Get the taste of nature`s purest form by opting for organic honey free from any kind of processing. Some products may have prebiotic qualities, which enhance and facilitate gut immunity. 4. Sunflower Seeds It`s a perfect way to tackle those in-between hunger pangs. Sprinkle these seeds atop your salads or in your morning bowl of muesli. Sunflower Seeds are an excellent source of vitamins E, B1, copper, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and other minerals. They are also good for muscle building and great for your immunity. Eat these in moderation as sunflower seeds are also high in fat. 5. Green Tea Herbal and green teas come spiked with the benefits of herbs like tulsi and others. They are diabetic friendly, good for heart, low in calories, packed with antioxidants, flavonoids and absolutely delicious to taste. Eat right, exercise well and get ample sleep.
