Eat sour fruits when you have a cold

Ms. Gao of Henan has recently caught a cold, and the doctor advised her to eat less cold. So, is this time suitable for eating fruit? Which fruits are better to eat?

In fact, when you have a cold, you can eat fruit. Sour fruit is especially recommended. In general, fruit with a sour taste tends to contain more vitamin C. For example, the data in the “Chinese Food Ingredients Table” shows that 100 grams of jujube contains 900 mg of vitamin C, which is 9 times the recommended amount per person per day of the Chinese Nutrition Society.

In addition, fruity fruits such as hawthorn and sea buckthorn are also rich in vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that boosts body resistance. Studies have shown that taking a large dose of vitamin C after a cold can shorten the course of the cold and heal in advance. Pharmacological studies have confirmed that vitamin C has an antihistamine effect and is helpful in relieving discomfort such as nasal congestion. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is excreted from the urine if ingested. Therefore, its toxicity is very low, and it does not cause any side effects when it is ingested from fruits and vegetables.

For the same variety of fruit, the taste of acid may be caused by high levels of causal acid, and the content of vitamin C is not necessarily higher than that of sweet taste.
