Foods are important for the immune system to function well. Below is a list of foods recommended to boosts your immune system:

Yogurt - this is packed with good bacteria that protects our body from harmful ones. The probiotics content are very important to keep the digestive system to work properly so that you can absorb all the nutrients your body needs.

Bell peppers - Surprisingly, red bell peppers contains more vitamin-c, ounce for ounce than any other food - including oranges. A half cup contains almost twice the amount recommended by the FDA. Bell peppers have a wide range of phytochemicals and beta carotene.

Tuna - This fish contains important nutrients for immune system health including selenium, omega3 fatty acids and some zinc, while being very low in bad fats.

Leafy greens - All leafy green vegetables has anti oxidant properties. Vegetables are rich in fiber.Fiber acts as cleaners in our body system.

Green tea - Also white and black tea, there are few better sources for important antioxidants. In addition to generally boosting the immune system, there is strong evidence that some of the compounds in tea, such as epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, are offensive as well as defensive — that is, they act directly on invading microbes like cold or flu viruses, in addition to helping to build immune system health.
