Swing into spring

Dear women, have you notice how March and April of previous years were much more rainy, clouded and cold than this year when we are all staying inside but would be rather picking some early blossoming flowers outside? As we slowly regain our balance and start preparing for our prior lives, there is a hot sun outside, just waiting for us to set on our cheeks. Because we've been home a lot, our bodies and minds need some natural elements to rise again. We've put together some natural boosters for your immune system that are perfect for getting you through the door to a wonderful Spring with fully open wings.

Citrus fruits
Because your body doesn't produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health and increasing the production of white blood cells. These are key to fighting infections. Make yourself a fruit bowl, and add some oats and chestnut honey. You can choose between grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, limes, and clementines.

Red bell peppers, Broccoli and garlic
If you think citrus fruits have the most vitamin C of any fruit or vegetable, think again. Red bell peppers are containing twice as much vitamin C as citrus fruits. They’re a rich source of beta carotene and helping you keep your eyes and skin healthy.
Broccoli is full of vitamins A, C, and E, as well, like many other antioxidants and fibers; cook it as little as possible, or better yet, not at all.
You can garlic found in almost every cuisine in the world, it adds a little liveliness to food, and it's a must-have for your health.

Ginger
Ginger is helping you decrease inflammation, reducing a sore throat, decreasing nausea, chronic pain and lowering your cholesterol level.
Spinach
Spinach is also packed with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene, which is increasing the infection-fighting ability of your immune system. Comparable to broccoli, spinach is healthiest when it’s cooked as little as possible.

Almonds
Nuts such as almonds are stuffed with vitamins and healthy fats; a half-cup serving shelled almonds is providing you the recommended daily amount of vitamin E.

Sunflower seeds
Sunflower seeds are full of nutrients, including phosphorous, magnesium, and vitamin B-6, they’re also incredibly high in vitamin E. Other foods with high amounts of vitamin E include avocados and dark leafy greens.
Pick your favorite and make it a daily habit.
