With the seasons changing, this is the time our immunity levels take a dip. And with India in the grip of the second-wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, the importance of building a strong immune system assumes even more importance. Here are a few superfoods that are time-tested immunity boosters!
Immunity Boosting Herbal Powders
These plant-based powders pack an immunity boosting punch! They are usually made by drying the herb and pounding it into a fine powder. Immunity-boosting powders can be single ingredient based or a combination of several different herbs.
Wellbe has launched four immunity-boosting powders – Amla, Moringa, Ashwagandha and Triphala. These powders are made from organically grown ingredients, minimally processed and free of chemicals, additives or preservatives! Loaded with antioxidants as well as immunity boosting vitamins and minerals, these are the superfoods your diet needs!
Wildforest honey, as the name suggests, is collected from the forests, by traditional honey hunters, from bees that feed on a variety of flowers. It contains bee pollen and is much more nutritious than conventional honey. Rich in micronutrients, it is filled with enzymes and immunity boosting properties, making it one of nature’s true superfoods
Wellbe Wildforest Honey is collected by the Gihar tribes, who are traditional honey hunters, from the forest of Uttarakhand. It is made from bees that feed on a variety of florets – around 20 different types of herbs – which have three times the medicinal properties of regular honey. Wellbe honey is extracted using the cold-press method without the use of any heat, which helps preserve the naturally-occurring pollen and enzymes.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is made by naturally fermenting apples. It is known for its immunity-boosting powers and has been used for over centuries now!
Wellbe Organic Apple Cider Vinegar is made from the finest organic apples grown in the Himalayas. It’s naturally fermented and bottled raw, a process that preserves the ‘mother’, or the visible cloudy sediment – strands of protein, healthy bacteria and enzymes, which form naturally as the vinegar ferments, and is loaded with healthy goodness.
Easily your grandmother’s favourite nuska! An age-old-Ayurvedic remedy, Chyawanprash is a blend of potent herbs known for their nutritional value, especially their immunity boosting prowess.
Yoghurt and other fermented foods like kombucha are rich in probiotics. Probiotics promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut. A healthy gut is key to a healthy immune system! Yoghurt also contains Vitamin D, another nutrient that helps in battling colds and flu.
Every kitchen has them – whole and powdered – and they are a must in our everyday cooking. And spices are rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties as well as a host of vitamins and minerals. So whether it’s turmeric, fenugreek, asafoetida, mustard, cloves, cinnamon, pepper or ginger in your food, make sure you use them regularly in your food!
