3 quick and easy immune-boosting recipes to fight the COVID-19 pandemic
On the whole, your immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms (e.g., bacteria and viruses). People with weak immune systems are more likely to suffer from seasonal diseases as well as the COVID-19. Prevention is better than cure, especially in the current situation, when the COVID-19 virus hasn't had vaccines yet. While there's no magic elixir, eating a healthy diet composed of foods known to have immunity-boosting qualities may help. Check out these immunity-boosting recipes from GO!
