Selenium is a great immune booster that helps fight infections. One Brazil nut contains about 120 mcg of selenium, which is twice the recommended dietary amount. The recommended amount is 55 mcg for women and 70 mcg for men. Research has shown that selenium helps prevent cancer, the formation of tumors, it fights against heart attacks and strokes, it protects from cataracts and macular degeneration by providing antioxidants, it fights against free radicals, heals cold sores and shingles, and it helps against inflammation that comes with lupus. 
Lightly toast some brazil nuts for a snack in between meals. It’s a simple addition to your diet that can give you a great immune boost!
