7. Drink some green tea to help boost your immune system
Green tea has been lauded as a super food for its metabolic powers, its many antioxidants, and its place as a healthier alternative to coffee. However, green tea can also have great effects on your immune system. For the maximum effect of green tea with minimum bitterness, add a little lemon and honey after steeping for 2 minutes. Make sure not to add milk as that can counteract the goodness of green tea.
What it does: Green tea is filled with plant antioxidants called polyphenols. One particular type of polyphenol called catechin has been known to kill influenza viruses and boost immune system response to it as well. The reason you shouldn’t drink green tea with milk is because the proteins bind to the polyphenols and defeats the purpose.
