- Pack in those fruits and veggies. Fruits and veggies are filled with phytonutrients that can help support a healthy immune system. Fresh, dried, canned or frozen fruits/veggies, it doesn't matter. Just make sure to get 'em in!
- Weave in some antioxidants, too! Add high antioxidant foods such as berries, dark leafy greens, nuts and seeds to snacks and meals. A trail mix is an easy on-the-go snack that doesn't need refrigeration.
- Check out those probiotics. Our gut health has a direct impact on our overall well-being. Incorporate foods with probiotics such as yogurts, cheeses, kefir, miso, kimchi, and kombucha to help keep our good gut bacteria strong.
Flu shots are still available at the Student Health Center for only $9. Appointments can be made by calling (408) 924-6122.
