Immunity is the need of the hour with constant warnings of the 3rd wave of COVID-19.

Our immune system is our body’s basic defence mechanism. In order for it to work well, we need to ensure that we take care of our body. So here are some tips on how you can change your diet to boost your immunity.

  1. Consume protein as it helps build antibodies. Foods such as lentils, legumes, dairy, nuts, seeds, eggs, fish and chicken are all rich in protein
  2. Ensure you’re getting your dose of vitamins and minerals. Fruits like amla, lemon, berries and green leafy vegetables are rich in Vitamin C
  3. Omega 3 reduces inflammation. Thus, one needs to have walnuts, fish & flaxseeds
  4. Iron is important for oxygen and blood production. Good sources of iron are beetroot, dates, pulses, meat and green leafy vegetables
  5. Finally, herbs such as turmeric, pepper, cinnamon and garlic are great for fighting pathogens

Together with a healthy diet we should exercise and have good sleeping habits. Taking care of our body helps build our immunity but it does not make us invincible. It is still possible to get sick especially with so much uncertainty around us. This is why we should also ensure that we are financially protected in case of an unfortunate event.

A good way to do this is with a term plan. A plan like the iProtect Smart Term Plan from ICICI Prudential Life is ideal. It financially protects our loved ones by providing them with a large sum of money in case of an unfortunate event. This ensures that they are not financially burdened in case of an uncertainty. It even offers coverage of COVID-19 life claims. The plan also offers protection for us against 34 life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, heart diseases and many more.

With these simple steps let’s gear up and be prepared for the future.

Kyuki agar tayari sahi ho, toh jeet pakki hain!
