FeedDiet and nutrition are the building blocks for good health and a strong immune system—what we eat and drink provides nutrients that help fuel our bodies’ growth, development, energy, etc. Superfoods, lauded for their strong nutrient profiles and long list of health benefits, like brightly colored fruits and vegetables (think kale, red peppers, or citrus fruits), can provide a quick hit of nutrients to help your body operate at its best. Up your intake of power-packed superfoods as cold season approaches, and give your body a fighting chance to fight back.

Direct sunlight, as well as foods like salmon, or others fortified with vitamin D, are a great way to go. Plus, focusing on upping your vitamin D makes for a great excuse to get out and soak up some of this key immune-boosting vitamin when that autumn sun is shining.
