EATING FRUIT AND VEGETABLE BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Your immune system is like an internal army. When it’s strong, it protects its border against invasion. When it’s weak it’s as if the army is fast asleep. A weakened immune system increases the incidence of a virus and bacterial invasion, issues such as skin disorders, delayed wound healing, upper respiratory infections, aging and chronic illness. Eating more fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy diet is an important key to help boost immune health.
