15 Sep Tip 17- Immune Boosting Foods #2
Zinc deficiency is common in the U.S. because many Americans aren’t eating enough zinc rich foods.
Common symptoms of zinc deficiency are frequent colds and infections. Zinc will stimulate your body to produce immune boosting antibodies (this is why zinc throat lozenges have become so popular) and it will help to annihilate cold viruses.
Today’s tip: Try the following zinc rich foods:
- Grass-fed beef: Cook up ground beef and add it to your salad.
- Pumpkin seeds: Keep a bowl on your desk at work or a baggie of them in your purse.
- Spinach: Switch to spinach salad in the winter.
