Which food help us fight infection?

Eat Infection-Fighting Foods

Here are some good foods to eat when you're battling a cold orflu:

Bananas and rice to soothe an upset stomach and curbdiarrhea
Vitamin C-containing foods like bell peppers
Blueberries curb diarrhea and are high in natural aspirin, which may lower fevers and help with aches and pains
Carrots, which contain beta-carotene
Chili peppers may open sinuses, and help break up mucus in the lungs
Cranberries may help prevent bacteria from sticking to cells lining the bladder and urinary tract
Mustard or horseradish may helps break up mucus in air passages
Onions contain phytochemicals purported to help the body clear bronchitis and other infections
Black and green tea contain catechin, a phytochemical purported to have natural antibiotic and anti-diarrhea effects

Staying warm and resting when you first come down with a cold helps your body direct its energy toward the immune battle. This battle taxes the body. So give it a little help by resting.
