Traditional Ayurvedic Foods That Can Boost Immunity

 Building strong immunity is not something that requires rocket science but a little discipline in life. With a good diet, regular exercise and proper sleep, one can have a healthy and strong immune system to defeat an infection that enters the human body. 

The struggle begins with what comes under a good diet because all the nutritious foods can’t be consumed at the same time. For instance, according to Ayurveda, the best time to eat fruit is in the morning. So having fruits like bananas, peaches or pears (fruits which can be consumed empty stomach) at some other time of the day would not be that beneficial for the body as compared to having them in the morning. 

Here are few easily available Ayurvedic Foods that could make your immunity healthier and stronger: 

1. Amla (Indian Gooseberry)

It is considered as a storehouse of Vitamin C. Amla has a very important and frequent role in various formulations and treatments in Ayurveda. This is not only a source of Vitamin C but Calcium, Potassium, Iron and Vitamin B-Complex. The antioxidants present in it help in fighting free radicals; Vitamin C keeps the hair colour black and it acts as a shield against all the infections. 

2.Dates ( Khajoor )

Khajoor carries some beneficial nutrients and immunity-boosting properties. It is a rich source of Iron, Magnesium, Selenium, Copper, Zinc and Vitamins A & B. Due to the abundance of iron in it; people with anaemia are often recommended having dates. They are easy to add to your diet as dessert.

3. Moong Beans (Moong Dal)

Ayurveda suggests moong daal for such conditions like lethargy, tiredness, or irregular bowel movements, because of its rich fibre content along with other essential vitamins, proteins and minerals. The best way to get its maximum health benefit is by having moong dal khichdi. 

4. Ghee 

In Ayurveda, ghee is used for both medicinal and cooking purposes. Rather than just healing or shielding from one particular disease, ghee helps in balancing your complete body function. It has optimum levels of OMEGA 3 & OMEGA 6 fatty-acids which help in making the brain, heart, nervous system and eyes healthier, and boosts immune function naturally from within.

5. Turmeric

Turmeric is suggested because of its immunity-boosting power and immense healing properties. It also protects us from heart diseases and improves blood circulation in the body.
