As the pandemic unexpectedly hit us, we tried our best to increase our immunity and engage in a healthy lifestyle. And as we tried making these changes, the process is still ongoing. Every day, we come across several new ingredients and foods that can aid our overall well-being. But if you look for these foods carefully, you will realise that many of our daily foods can also help us boost our immunity. Take, for instance, jaggery and sesame seeds.
