Boost Your Immune System!

During these difficult times involving Covid-19, distancing isn’t the only thing that you can do to stay safe. We have an array of key foods and ingredients that will help boost your immune system preventing colds, flus and other infections. We care about you and your family’s health and well being, which is why we pride ourselves on the ability to bring these fresh ingredients right to your door!

The first thing you should add to your GOCART box is any sort of citrus fruit because they are extremely high in vitamin C. Vitamin C increases the production of your white blood cells which helps fight infections. We sell fresh products like oranges, grapefruits and clementines which make great breakfast buddies or easy, sweet snacks! We also sell lemons and limes which are super easy to drizzle over almost any meal. Summer Tip: Lemonade is an easy and refreshing drink to prepare for those hot summer days, so you can cool off and get a delicious vitamin C fix!

The next few checkmarks on your grocery list should go to several versatile vegetables! For instance, broccoli is laden with antioxidants, fiber and vitamins A, C and E making it one of the healthiest vegetables that you can bring to the table. Cooking Tip: steaming broccoli is the best way to maintain the level of nutrients in it. Another great green is spinach because much like broccoli it has a ton of antioxidants and additionally it contains beta carotene, which increases our immune systems fighting ability.

As you continue to push your virtual cart down the aisles you’ll definitely want to throw in some cooking must haves such as garlic and ginger. Garlic is yet another infection fighter and can be added to almost every meal! Ginger is helpful when you are already sick because it has anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe a sore throat or an upset stomach. Cooking Tip: don’t forget that ginger isn’t only used in savoury dishes, there are a lot of comforting desserts that require ginger.

One more item that you should throw in your cart before checkout is green tea. Green tea is full of antioxidants that enhance immune function and it has a subdued soothing taste as opposed to other teas that are more potent in flavour. Summer Tip: is it too humid outside to drink a steaming hot cup of tea? Make a batch of iced green tea by putting 6-8 bags in 8 cups of water and refrigerating it for a few hours (adding honey or sugar is optional).

It is important to remember that these products are immune system boosting recommendations and there is no scientific proof that they cure coronavirus.
