✓LOAD UP ON VI­TA­MIN C

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - YOUR HEALTHY HOLIDAY CHECKLIST -

To pro­tect your­self from the hol­i­day snif­fles, snack on foods rich in vi­ta­min C (such as citrus fruits, cap­sicum and green, leafy veg) be­fore you leave. Ac­cord­ing to re­search from the Univer­sity of Otago in New Zealand, vi­ta­min C helps de­fend your body from in­vad­ing pathogens and in­creases your lev­els of im­mune-boost­ing T-cells. And if you do come down with a bug, it’s also been found to de­crease the sever­ity and du­ra­tion of in­fec­tions like the com­mon cold.
