What To Eat When You're Sick : Boost Your Immunity Naturally

A mild sniffle at the very least, might just get the better of us. We hate being this vulnerable to the rains, but it seems inevitable. We can either throw our hands up in the air and accept the way it is or pull our socks up. Whether you want to prevent falling ill or cure it, here’s something for you.

We may not realise this, but our digestive tracts play an extremely important role in warding off germs. The foods we consume directly affect how fast we recover.

So they say, “Starve a fever, feed a cold.”

NOT TRUE!!

When we’re sick, our body needs surplus calories just to function. Our metabolic rate rises significantly, with each degree our body temperature increases. So one of the worst things we can do, when ill is starve. Eating fewer calories restricts, the bodies ability to heal. Our immune systems will have no fuel to aid in recovery, let alone support normal function. Ever noticed how our appetites go for a toss, when ill? The usually pleasurable act of eating, seems like an arduous task. While it may suck to do so, you need to eat and eat enough, to recover.

Here are some effective tools to boost your immunity and recover faster:
