Pumpkins are full of beta-carotene goodness, which is not only important for strengthening the immune system but also supports the health of your eyes, mucous membranes and skin. Including eggs in your diet is an excellent way to increase your zinc and iron intake. These important nutrients help improve the body’s ability to fight off infections. Onions and garlic contain organic sulfur compounds that are necessary for making glutathione, one of the body’s major antioxidants. Sulfur also helps remove heavy metals from the body.
