Hello Fontbonne students and faculty,

How’s everyone doing? I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break and is now full of energy to work and study hard in this semester! Since I am a graduate student studying nutrition, this semester I would like to share some of my useful and interesting nutrition knowledge for you all! Hope you all will like learning about it.

This week I’d like to talk about some important micronutrients that help boost up your immune system to fight against the seasonal illness “FLU”. Does anyone know that some vitamins like VITAMIN A, C, and E help protect you from getting sick? The followings are some foods that are high in those vitamins:

Vitamin A: helps build up your immune system and protect you from infection! Foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, kale, spinach, red bell peppers.

Vitamin C: helps stimulate production of antibodies >>> antibodies help fight against bacteria. Foods such as orange, lemon, red bell peppers, tomatoes, grapefruit, etc.

Vitamin E: antioxidants help remove free radicals>>>> improve immune function. Foods such as sunflower seeds, almonds, peanut butter, fortified cereals. *p.s.: Vitamin E helps your skin get prettier too 🙂 *

Hope this little nutrition information help you fight against the easonal FLU and prevents you from getting sick easily 🙂

– Kathy
