Vitamin rich superfoods that help with anxiety, stress and your immunity

There are many different approaches to upping your immunity, and many homemade remedies and concoctions have surfaced since COVID-19 came to light. From tonics and homey soups and broths, the lists are far and wide. 

So when it comes to naturally upping your vitamin intake, the list can be long and sometimes overwhelming. With the third wave reaching its peak, we have to try and be consistent in practising a healthier lifestyle, which will help boost our immunity. 

Taking vitamins should be an essential part of your daily routine, but if you can get your vitamin intake from eating vitamin-rich foods, you should because the benefits can be endless.

Another great source of vitamins is spinach...the doctors and nurses who tell you that fresh, leafy greens are a great source of vitamins were not joking. 

They are also good for lowering your blood pressure and are low in carbohydrates, so that's good for weight loss. Spinach is high in calcium, B-vitamins, iron, and antioxidants.

Nuts and berries are also a great source of vitamins. We remember when mum used to say, eat almonds, they are good for memory. She was not wrong...They are also a source of nutrients, including B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids.

Then, remember that coriander and black pepper can be used in an Indian dish called Rasam, which is a broth that helps with flu and cold. You can check out the recipe here: Rasam (King Soup) Recipe. This helps your body fight off any infection and is an age old flu remedy for many homes in Durban. 

Tumeric and cayenne pepper with pure orange juice are also a great vitamin boosting shot, so make sure to try it out, if you can handle the heat...
