One of the most important systems in our bodies that help to fight off ailments and diseases happens to be our immune system. In order to strengthen your immune system and to ward off cancer, there are several cancer-fighting foods that you can supplement your diet with. To get the most of these cancer-fighting foods, you need to enjoy a variety of them instead of gulping down one single food item in bulk.
Increase your intake of antioxidants loaded foods. A potent vitamin, antioxidants provide protection against cancer cells and help our bodies function optimally. Some of the antioxidants are vitamin C, beta-carotene, selenium and vitamin E. Vegetables and fruits are packed with these antioxidants, so enjoy them amply.
Incorporate different colored fruits and vegetables. The more variety of colored foods you complement your diet with, the more benefits you’ll be able to reap. Brightly colored fruits and vegetables are packed with phyto-chemicals, a powerful nutrient which helps to ward off disease and boost the immune system.
Add natural spices and herbs to your food. Spices such as curry powder, coriander powder, turmeric, garlic powder, ginger powder etc, help to fight off cancer and add a punch of exotic flavor to your meal. Apart from that, herbs such as basil, rosemary, thyme, mint etc too help to shun away the cancer cells and strengthen your immune system.
