What fruits and vegetables are good for skin diseases and blood infections?

Q. i am suffering from Skin deceases and blood infection , which fruits i need to prefer. please advice me.


A. There is no one fruit or vegetable that provides everything our body needs. Fruits and veggies provide an assortment of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can work to heal and protect your body. A few examples of beneficial nutrients found in fruits and vegetables include vitamin C, antioxidants and zinc. Vitamin C is excellent at healing wounds and boosting the immune system. Some fruits and veggies with high vitamin C include: oranges, lemons, strawberries, pineapple, broccoli and tomatoes.


Antioxidants are another compound found in a variety of fruits and veggies. Antioxidants protect and repair your immune system from damage. Produce that is high in antioxidants includes: blueberries, purple cabbage, raspberries, pomegranates and carrots. Zinc is a mineral found in peas, potatoes, corn, Napa cabbage and lima beans that can also be beneficial to repairing the immune system.


Make sure to consult with your physician before changing your diet to prevent any possible drug-nutrient interactions.
