It’s no secret that healthy eating (and a healthy lifestyle) boosts your immunity and promotes optimum wellness.
Over the past year, we’ve all had to incorporate an additional ‘health plan’ into our daily lives – taking measures to avoid contracting COVID-19. We’ve all stockpiled hand sanitisers, bought masks, scrubbed our hands obsessively when returning from the mall and done our best to avoid crowded areas. But is that enough?
Well, while the above-mentioned measures are important in fighting against contracting nasty bugs, it’s equally vital to live a healthy lifestyle and consume the right foods and vitamins to ensure a strong immune system, which can help prevent illness and increase your chances of a quicker recovery if you do get sick.
Your wellness journey made easy
Here are some common issues people experience and the foods/vitamins that help address them:
- B vitamins
Suffer from lethargy and foggy brain? You might not be getting enough B vitamins in your diet. Eggs, meat and wholegrains are rich in these essential vitamins, which give you energy, aid digestion and maintain brain and skin health.

Feeling run down? Ensure you’re eating enough nuts, seeds, shellfish, dairy and meat (all rich in zinc, which helps boost immunity).

- Turmeric and Fennel
Got digestion/bloating issues? Turmeric aids detoxification of the body, fights indigestion and is a good anti-inflammatory; while fennel’s high in fibre and helps the gut rid itself of the bacteria that causes bloating.
