Is your immune system at an all-time low during the changing season? Founder and Director at GAIA, one of India’s fastest growing health and nutrition brand, Dolly Kumar shares few healthy food snacks that will help boost your immune system.
With cooler months approaching, take proactive steps towards bolstering your immune system. Good nutrition, plenty of water and an active lifestyle are a few habits one should adopt this season along with the following tips:
Neem is known to help boost immune system along with cooling down one’s body internally. Neem has both anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that helps keep skin clean, radiant and healthy. Also known to have blood purifying properties, neem helps clear toxins and impurities from blood leaving one with a strengthened immune system. Pop a neem capsule in the morning for a calmed and purified self.
Staying well-nourished during this time is not only important but also necessary to remain healthy. Kick-start your mornings with Muesli and be high on energy all day long! Rich in dietary fibre, proteins, iron and anti-oxidants, this power-food is a healthy mix of rolled oats, wheat flakes and corn flakes coupled with different flavours. A nutritiously satisfying meal, dribble some Honey over a bowl of muesli with skimmed milk and pleasure that sweet tooth. Alternatively, you can also indulge in a steaming bowl of Masala Oats with vegetables. Rich in dietary fibre and protein, oats are a low-calorie food that would keep one fuller for longer. Oats are also proven to manage cholesterol levels, maintain healthy body weight and reduce risk of blood sugar and diabetes.
Also, do you usually feel a sense of energy dip in the afternoons or are suffering with sore throat problems due to the weather?

Green Tea comes packed with powerful anti-oxidants and nutrients that helps regulate blood sugar levels, improves brain functioning and enhances metabolism. This super-drink also has essential minerals, bioactive compounds and fat-burning qualities, that not only helps in increasing detoxification process in the body but also aids in weight loss.
