Arabia Weather - With the advent of winter, many people are exposed to severe colds that may force them to stay away from home for long periods. This season is a challenge for the immune system and overall health. In order to strengthen immunity and ensure good health, the body needs to receive essential nutrients.

According to the Deutsche Welle website , low temperatures, heavy rainfall and snow, in addition to the short daylight period, cause negative effects on the mood and general health of individuals, which makes it extremely important to take care of proper nutrition during this time.

Throughout the cold months, the medical field constantly offers a group of medications and antibiotics to treat colds and strengthen the immune system, which faces real challenges in this season of the year. Despite the availability of many drug treatments, it stresses the importance of relying on some specific foods before turning to different medications. These foods contribute to strengthening the immune system and providing effective protection for the body during the winter, as indicated by several German websites.
