There is a lot of information spreading around the internet about things that can help you boost your immune system (and lower your risk of contracting COVID). But special supplements that promote this are just money down the drain because guess what? Plants can do THE SAME THING and they are right there in your grocery store.

Plants have essential nutrients that you can’t get from other foods⁠. The vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and antioxidants in plants help support your immune system to function at its best

“A plant-based diet strengthens your immune system to protect you against germs and microorganisms. To reduce inflammation, it’s important to eat plant-based and to listen to your body’s signals for how foods work for you.”⁠
Andrea Murray, MD Anderson⁠

Essential nutrients in plants work to resolve inflammation in your body. Phytochemicals and antioxidants boost your immune system and help neutralize toxins from pollution, processed foods, bacteria, viruses and more⁠

Next time your at the grocery, stock up on the real essentials: PLANTS
