The antioxidant, anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory qualities of ginger make it an excellent choice in soups and teas when someone is sick or having digestive issues. Regular consumption of ginger may also help to combat cancer and diabetes.
8. Citrus Fruit
Oranges, and other citrus fruits, are high in vitamin C. Vitamin C is a key enzyme needed to keep the body healthy and keep the immune system strong. It’s also a necessary vitamin for wound healing and combating inflammation. Vitamin C is so vital that a severe deficiency causes a condition called scurvy, which results in a weak immune system, tooth loss, slow wound healing, and bruising.
Although it’s not green like the others in the cruciferous vegetable family (broccoli, mustard greens, and cabbage), cauliflower is still packed with antioxidants and vitamins C. Cauliflower also contains glucosinolates, which help to protect the body from cell damage and harmful pathogens.
