Being rich in probiotic bacteria, foods like yoghurt and homemade pickles are absolutely fantastic during this season. The healthy bacteria prevent stomach infections while improving digestion and promoting gut health. The microbes will protect you from falling sick by guarding your gut.
Don’t forget to include turmeric, ashwagandha and tulsi in your everyday diet. Their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are the warriors who keep your body safe from all the viruses. You can chew on to 1-2 tulsi leaves, have ashwagandha powder and include turmeric in your foods.
