How fruits and vegetables support the immune system
There is little question that eating a healthy diet supports the health of your body in many ways. Your immune system is a huge beneficiary from the nutrients that come from healthy foods. The vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients in fruits and vegetables aid immune cells to fight off threats, regulate inflammation, and keep long-term disease at bay.
Fruits and Vegetables Improve Effectiveness of White Blood Cells
The immune system produces white blood cells to fight invaders like bacteria and viruses. One Study found that vegetarians who had elevated levels of carotene from foods like fruits and vegetables, had more effective white blood cells than non vegetarians.

Fruits and Vegetables Improves Immune Response
A Study done with older individuals measured if fruit and vegetable consumption aided the antibody response by the immune system to a threat. The study found that individuals who consumed more fruits and vegetables (over 3 servings per day) had a greater antibody response.

Want to reduce your visits to the doctor or hospital? One study found that those who increased their nutrients through diet or through vitamins had fewer trips to the doctor and hospital and fewer sick days than the control group.
