We are living in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic and strong immunity is the key to being safe. As the cases continue to surge, it is advisable to do everything that boosts our immunity. There are several yoga and pranayam to make your immune system strong. But if you don’t have enough time to do yoga and pranayam, there are some alternatives. Including some fruits in your diet can be helpful. One of them is winter fruit jujube, commonly known as ber. Making it part of your daily diet can be extremely helpful. This fruit is no less than a thousand years old and has even found references in Indian mythology. The sweet and tarty fruit is not only delicious but also an excellent source of Vitamin C and this is why it works as an immunity booster. Not only this, but ber is also an effective way to cure constipation.
Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar often recommends people to eat hyper-local fruits to boost immunity. She has now recommended ber. According to Diwekar, the fruit is extremely beneficial for children who suffer from low immunity. She also said that the hyper-local fruit is helpful in treating winter-related hair and skin problems.
