Fact: people are more susceptible to colds when it's cold. Coughs, fever, and flu are also easy to contract when it's chilly outside. It's therefore no surprise that the dread meter registers the highest numbers during winter. Many, if not most, are just afraid of getting sick during the winter months.
But here's the good news. Your immune system can function as well as it does in summertime even if it's snowing outside. You just have to eat the best foods that will nourish and strengthen it. Here's a list of some foods that will give you a robust immunity in spite of the harsh season. It's very important that you eat them raw so you preserve all their nutrients, including heat-sensitive enzymes.
All of the foods mentioned below have anti-mutagenic properties. If they can help defend your body against something as severe as cancer then they can definitely help protect you from the sniffles, even in the freezing height of winter.
