A recipe book designed to support the immune system.
This recipe book incorporates immune-supportive nutrients with a focus on vitamin C, zinc, vitamin A, selenium, and vitamin E.
This recipe book was created with five key nutrients in mind:
Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient that supports various cellular functions of our immune system. A lack of vitamin C can make you more prone to getting sick. This plan provides vitamin C from whole food sources like strawberries, oranges, grapefruit, apples, and Brussels sprouts.
Zinc is an essential mineral critical for immune function. Even a mild to moderate zinc deficiency can impair immune function and increase the risk of respiratory infections. You can find zinc sources in this meal plan from beef, legumes, nuts, seeds, and chicken.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble antioxidant involved in the cellular immune response and provides enhanced defense against multiple infectious diseases. This meal plan is packed with vitamin A sources like tomato, sweet potato, tuna, egg, and dark leafy greens like spinach. These foods are paired with healthy fats to increase vitamin A absorption.
Selenium is an essential mineral that is required for the function of almost every arm of the immune system. This plan provides over 70 mcg of selenium by incorporating eggs, beef, tuna, chicken, and spinach.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps the body fight off infection. Diets high in vitamin E improve cellular immunity by protecting against cell damage. This program incorporates vitamin E from almonds, salmon, tuna, and spinach.
