How does that old saying go; ‘the best defense is a good offense‘?
I don’t watch football but the same philosophy is true when it comes down to our health. If you want to give yourself a fighting chance during cold and flu season, you must be prepared! Luckily there are many healthy lifestyle factors that can help you to boost your immunity and effectively fight off potential sickness and disease. Although we’re well into April, cold and flu season is at its peak this year and it is important to stay prepared.

As mentioned in the video, while no one singe food has been shown to have an impact on the immune system, a good diet in combination with other healthy lifestyle factors such as good hand hygiene, healthy sleep habits and exercise have been shown to help prevent the onset of many potential illnesses. This week on Good Day Rochester I am featuring tropical fruits like pomegranate, kiwi and mango, Greek Yogurt, and green tea as some of our immune boosting ingredients!
