These pretty little antioxidants bombs (especially blueberries) aren’t just good for your skin, but are also good for your immune system. Antioxidants help protect your body on the inside by targeting the ‘free radicals’ that cause harms to your cells 🛡️.
Salmon 🐟 is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. The abundant essential fatty acids in salmon can help build our immune system and antibodies. Also containing loads of vitamin D, salmon can also promote cell activation and help maintain the immune system.
