The season is changing and we are experiencing chill in the air especially, in the morning and nights. The sudden temperature drops in outside as compared to our body temperature leads to cold and cough. In case one has low immunity then the chances of suffering from cold and cough is higher. Hence, building immunity becomes very necessary for this season. All colourful vegetables and fruits are rich sources of antioxidant, vitamins and minerals which helps in improving the body immunity.
