Synopses & Reviews
A vigorous immune system is vital to good health, both physical and mental. Research has long shown that the nutrients present in common foods can help strengthen the body?s natural defenses and provide unbeatable protection against infection, disease, and allergy. This handy guide lists the most potent of these immune-boosting foods ? profiling each one, highlighting its unique benefits, and providing important nutritional information. The book was written for those in poor health (whether short- or long-term), those who suffer from repeated infections, or anyone who is simply concerned with maximizing health through nutrition. Individual chapters cover Roots and Bulbs; Nuts, Seeds, and Oils; Grains, Pulses, and Beans; Poultry and Game; and much more. Written by a frequent, knowledgeable commentator on this issue, The Top 100 Immunity Boosters provides an invaluable reference for readers interested in the healing properties of foods and natural alternatives to conventional medicine.

Eat well today for a healthier tomorrow! With proper nutrition, we can actually bolster our immune system—and, as these 100 recipes prove, its not only easy to do, its also delicious. Here are foods rich in important vitamins, such as A, B complex, C, and E; in minerals, including zinc, selenium, and calcium; in Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids; and in protein and fiber. For each choice, theres a tasty recipe, and information on its beneficial nutrients. Enjoy a sweet potato summer salad (with lots of betacarotene); cholesterol-lowering guacamole; broccoli stir-fry (a potential cancer-fighter); and a tasty blueberry smoothie. An ailment directory makes it simple to locate the right food for any problem.
