No matter how much our heart craves the hot & spicy food as soon as the first splatter of rain hits the roof, the fact remains that first and foremost we need to be healthy to enjoy all the joys of monsoon. But it’s not that easy with a plethora of air and water born diseases just waiting to strike at the first sign of weakness. The only way to keep diseases at bay is to stay alert and keep up our immunity. And there’s nothing better than some fresh fruits to give our immunity the much-needed boost when we need it the most.
Get a daily dose of these fruits this monsoon to boost your immunity and say no to diseases:
Whoever coined the phrase ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away,’ definitely knew what they were saying. Rich in antioxidants and dietary fibre, apples help in improving digestion and preventing stomach disorders. Free from fat and cholesterol and full of energy, it’s the perfect fruit to help you feel full.
A good source of Vitamin A, C, and E and several antioxidants, pomegranates are not only nutritious and delicious but also act as natural immunity boosters. From maintaining healthy blood circulation to cleaning up the skin, the health benefits of this amazing fruit are simply immeasurable.
Litchi is a rich source of Vitamin C and helps build body’s resistance against infections. It also contains dietary fibre which is good for ensuring regular bowel movement. Litchi helps protect the body from influenza and other seasonal infections that are common in monsoons.
Cherries are well known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, but what most people don’t know is that this fruit is also good for people with blood sugar issues. Unlike most fruits that spike up your blood sugar, cherries rank low on glycemic index and hence you don’t have to worry about disturbing the precarious sugar balance while enjoying this fruit.
This is again another rich source of Vitamin C. Bored of the sweet Litchi, but need your daily dose of Vitamin C? Try this slightly sweet and citrus fruit and keep up your immunity.
So the next time you go out for grocery shopping, remember to fill your bag with these power-packed fruits and forget about the monsoon health woes.
