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.
