Maybe it’s time to start growing your own vegetables garden. Tomatoes are great to eat when feeling sick due to their high concentration of vitamin C. Just one medium tomato contains more than 16 milligrams of vitamin C, which is a proven fuel to your body’s immune system.
In a German study vitamin C was shown to be a vital part of the strength of the body’s phagocytes and t-cells, two key components of the body’s immune system. The researchers also noted that a deficiency in this nutrient can lead to a weaker immune system and lower resistance to certain pathogens that can lead to illness. Men know this – Tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene which is vital for the health of the male prostate.
