Go ahead and pour yourself another cup of coffee! Recent studies show that your morning mug of joe actually enhances immune function. How? The brew is loaded with micronutrients that power up your body’s ability to fight infections and may actually inhibit viral replication. For best results, aim for just 1 or 2 cups of coffee per day – any more can raise cortisol levels that dampen immunity -and enjoy your java without milk or sweeteners. Sugars, including those naturally found in milk, hinder immune function.
