      The gym is a breeding ground for germs, especially during cold and flu season. Everyone is sneezing, blowing their nose and then touching gym equipment. Where’s the gym etiquette of wiping your hands clean, not just the equipment? To prevent yourself from catching the gym-floor sniffles, give your immune system a boost with the following foods.

      1.Citrus
      Is your nose running and you’re having a hard time trying to catch it? Oranges, tangerines, lemons, and grapefruit will help you keep up—they’re packed with immune-boosting vitamin C. The citrus fruit family is a staple during cold and flu season. Studies have shown that larger doses of vitamin C can shorten the duration and severity of your cold symptoms. Citrus fruits also contain a muscular benefit; they’re high in potassium, which is needed for fluid regulation and muscle contractions.

      2.Bone Broth
      This food item caught traction a few years ago, and it’s still proving itself that it’s still useful. Bone broth is created by simmering the bones for several hours with the goal of extracting minerals while the marrow is cooked down. The minerals that get released will help you bounce back quickly; those minerals are magnesium, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. While bone broth is boosting your immunity, it can also reduce joint and muscle pain since it's packed with glucosamine.

      3.Ginger
      Considering drinking ginger tea or adding some ginger to a smoothie during your next cold? In a review published by the International Journal of Preventative Medicine, ginger contains gingerol and shagelol, which contain antimicrobial properties that can help your body ward off sickness. Additionally, ginger is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals and help boost your immune system.

      4.Blueberries
      They’re a muscle-building staple because of their flavonoid (antioxidant) profile, which reduces free radical damage after a long lifting session. Research from the University of Auckland found that adults reduce their risk of catching the common cold by 33 percent when consuming foods high in flavonoids, like blueberries.

      5.Spinach
      Spinach is a classic superfood. It’s loaded with fiber, and vitamin C. Add this superfood to a meal by sautéing it with olive oil, or toss a cup of it into a protein smoothie.

      6.Garlic
      Up the flavor in your next meal with garlic. Garlic contains allicin, which is the main active ingredient that gives it that unique flavor and smell. A study published by Advances in Therapy demonstrated that garlic cut the risk of getting a cold by 63 percent.

      7.Salmon
      Build muscle while preventing a cold by eating salmon. The reason: salmon is high in zinc, an immune-boosting mineral. Additionally, you can pop some zinc within the first 24 hours of a cold to help reduce the duration of its symptoms.

      8.Water
      When you’re sick, it’s easy to become dehydrated, a reason why doctors say, “keep your fluids up.” Water acts as a natural detox, helping rid the body of harmful pathogens. It can also help break up congestion and prevent further infections.

      9.Mushrooms
      From shiitake to button, mushrooms are a suitable choice to boost your immune system. They’re rich in the polysaccharide beta glucan, which activates the immune system to prevent the common cold. Mushrooms also help control white blood cells, keeping them on alert for a possible infection.

      10.Yogurt
      Your gut makes up 70 percent of your immune system. To keep it in peak condition, load up on yogurt. It's a great source of probiotics, which help fight off the harmful bacteria in the gut.

      My grandma used to cut up a few cloves of garlic and let it sit 5 minutes then make us kids eat it when we had a cold. She said it was more potent if you let it sit.

      good list

      Jipped, I started taking a c;love of garlic before bedtime because I read that its good for high blood pressure. I dont actually chew it, I swallow it whole.
      This is the first time I have read that it is good to keep colds away. All in all its a plus !!!

      If you want to avoid the flu take Elderberry. I drink the liquid, about a TBLspoon but you can buy capsules or gummies

      Good stuff bro. I may start the clove of garlic before bed as well. I've always heard it was good for you, but never jumped on it.

      Jipped is right ! ya gotta' eat it raw, cooking takes away the Allicin.. I didn't know that. My Oma used to eat sauerkraut for her sugar levels, and before bed allways a shot of Schnapps she said it was good for the heart... yep, German.
