The global Coronavirus outbreak has led several countries to a complete lockdown. As India too goes through a 21-day complete lockdown that began on 25th March, 2020, people have started to reconsider their lifestyle and food choices amid the growing concern of immunity. Boosting one's immunity becomes all the more important during the weather change when seasonal infection is at its peak. And our celebrities are trying to make the most of some basic kitchen ingredients to prepare immunity-boosting recipes.
Turmeric is one kitchen ingredient that tops the list when we speak of immunity. Be it Sara's turmeric milk or Bipasha Basu's turmeric powder, seems like everyone's swearing on this wonder ingredient. And recently, Anushka Sharma too joined in! The 'Pari' actor took to Instagram stories to share her morning 'immunity boost menu', which included two of the most popular kitchen ingredients for immunity - turmeric and lemon.

The last thing on Anushka Sharma's immunity-boosting menu was alkaline water that can be made with lemon or baking soda by simply mixing them with water. It boasts of many health benefits, including boosting immunity. Alkaline water help neutralises the acidity in our body by lowering excessive acidic content which is caused by poor diet, stress and environmental toxins.
While turmeric comes loaded with a compound called curcumin that is said to reduce oxidative stress, lemon is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants that help fight free radical activity and foster immunity.
