Strong Immune System

Zinc + Sulphur Compounds = Strong Immune System

Attention onion and garlic lovers! These two pungent plants do more than add flavor to foods. Turns out their sulfur compounds help boost absorption of the zinc that’s found in whole-grain foods (important for immunity and wound healing).

 Good Sources of Zinc:

All whole grains, including brown rice and whole-grain breads; legumes

Good Sources of Sulfur Compounds:

Onions, garlic

Combo Ideas • Brown (or wild) rice with caramelized onions
                      • Whole-wheat bagel topped with light cream cheese and sliced onion
