  2. PUMPKIN - It is rich in vitamin A, which enhances immune functions, such as white blood cell activity. Vitamin A also has antioxidant properties, and studies have shown that a deficiency increases risk of infectious disease. Carrots, sweet potatoes, collards, spinach and kale are all high in vitamin A.

  3. OYSTERS - Are the richest source of zinc, an antioxidant mineral thats essential for immune cell function. It has shown that even mild zinc deficiency depresses immunity. Beef, crab, turkey and kidney beans are other great sources of zinc.
