The recent COVID-19 outbreak has caused concern across the world, and many people are taking measures to make sure they do not fall sick.

Besides washing your hands and staying home if you’re sick, there’s a lot you can do from a nutrition standpoint to boost your immune system– eat more vegetables and fruits, legumes and whole grains.

Vegetables and fruits especially, have nutrients and special natural compounds called phytochemicals that serve as antioxidants to neutralize damage to cells and fight nasty pathogens like COVID-19, the flu, and the common cold. Will they prevent you from getting sick? Maybe not. But a healthy diet can help strengthen your immune system to help fight the virus and recover quickly.

Below are some nutrients found in plant-based foods that are vital for a strong and robust immune system:

Vitamin C

An antioxidant that increases the production of white blood cells, is key to fighting infections. Citrus fruits, papaya, dark green and yellow vegetables, red bell pepper, strawberries, tomatoes, and watermelons are great sources of Vitamin C.

Vitamin E

An antioxidant that protects your cells from free radical damages, enhances the immune system to fight off bacteria and viruses. Foods high in vitamin E are sunflower seeds, nuts, and green vegetables.

Vitamin A
