Are you concerned about the recent spike in COVID-19 cases? The best way to combat any flu or virus is to boost up your immune system.

Sunflower seeds are full of nutrients, including phosphorous, magnesium, as well as vitamins B-6 and E.

Vitamin E plays an important role in maintaining a strong immune system. So, grab a handful of seeds to munch on and help boost your immune system.

Sunflower seeds are also incredibly high in selenium. Just 1 ounce contains nearly half the selenium that the average adult needs daily. Sine studies have looked at selenium to combat viral infections such as swine flu (H1N1).

Other foods with high amounts of vitamin E include dark leafy greens and avocados.
