Friend or family member feeling under the weather? Our Super Deluxe Get Well Basket is just what the doctor ordered. This unique get well basket is full of delicious, healthy foods that boost the immune system and help provide symptomatic relief. The natural foods chosen help ease congestion, control cough, and help the body fight illness.
Beta-carotene, a carotenoid with potent immune-system boosting properties is found in foods such as sweet potatoes, carrots, apricots, and peaches. Vitamins with immune-boosting properties include vitamin E, vitamin D, and vitamin C. To increase intake of these vitamins, we've included food sources rich in the above-mentioned vitamins such as almonds (vitamin E), mushrooms (vitamin D), and red peppers (vitamin C) as well as vegetable chips that provide a gourmet veggie experience.
To boost immunity, we've included zinc-rich sources such as pumpkin seeds, oysters, and crab. And no get well basket is complete without "an apple a day to keep the doctor away," so we've included tasty apple chips.
While your recipient is waiting to heal, we've included foods to help ease the symptoms associated with the common cold: ginger people sauce (ginger has antihistamine and decongestant properties), peppermint tea (peppermint reduces nasal-passage inflammation & relieves congestion & cough of colds & allergies), and licorice and honey (licorice and honey can help ease coughs).
