Amidst the on-going Coronavirus pandemic, the importance of immunity has been stressed upon time and again. A healthy immune system helps us fight disease-causing germs and bacteria. It may also decrease the impact of various viral infections on the human body. However, it takes time and a well-balanced diet to build strong immune health. As per Delnaaz T. Chanduwadia, Chief Dietitian, Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre, Mumbai, "Strengthening immunity begins with eating right and fuelling our body correctly." But did you know, immunity also depends on the condition of our gut health?
Several studies around the world have found that the countless number of micro-organisms inside our gut walls help to improve metabolism and protect our body from several infections that affect our overall immunity. According to experts, these micro-organisms comprise more than 70 percent of the immune system. Hence, it is always recommended to have a healthy digestive-system to build strong immune health.
Keeping both the factors in mind, we found a popular detox tea that is made with healthy kitchen spices like cumin (jeera), coriander (dhania) and fennel (saunf). All these three spices are loaded with nutrients that aid better digestion, metabolism and immunity. Alongside, cumin-coriander-fennel tea also helps promote weight loss and overall health.
