Amazingly, eating fruits and vegetables boosts our immune system and keeps us from getting sick.
The fruits and vegetables we are talking about come from the produce aisle in the grocery store. Look at the picture above for an idea. It’s the tomatoes and apples, grapefruits and bananas, broccoli and cauliflower, celery and kale and fresh produce of all different shapes and sizes that boosts our immune system and helps us avoid getting sick.
The video above discusses the various studies citing that within a short period of time, even as little as two weeks, if we don’t eat vegetables, our immune system plummets. However, within two weeks of eating fruits and vegetables raises our immune system quantifiably. There were some specific studies performed between various types of vegetables and how well they performed. What was discovered was cruciferous vegetables did the most good. The results were profound.
Cruciferous vegetables include, and are not limited to, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Brussels Collards, Sprouts, Kale, Arugula and Radishes. These vegetables have the most profound impact on our health. These studies are finding people who eat more vegetables are getting less colds.
Eating these vegetables every day will go a long way to keeping us healthy. Washing fruits and vegetables before we eat them is encouraged. Rinsing vegetables and letting them drip dry in a Colander before cooking and eating them is a good way to ensure no unwanted bacteria or pesticides are still on them.
These reports really do prove, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
