 Garlic isn't just for fighting off vampires, it also helps fight off illness by increasing T-cells which attack viruses. One study found that doses of garlic can reduce your number of sick days by 61%. Garlic can also help your long term health by lowering blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and preventing Alzheimer's.  

Bok Choy

This soup also contains bok choy which is high in Vitamin A and C that both help to boost the immune system. In addition to these nutrients, selenium in this super food stimulates the production of T-cells.

Lastly, kale is full of iron, vitamins, and antioxidants- so basically its plain magic. The iron in kale helps with proper cell growth and transporting oxygen to your body. These antioxidants counteract the damage of free radicals in your body.
