The coronavirus sure imposes a great threat on all of us and while we can’t completely eliminate the risk, one thing we can do is eat healthier food that can help boost our immune system which is responsible for fighting the virus.

So stay safe and plan your meals to include the following powerful immune system booster!

Citrus fruits

Vitamin C increases the production of white blood cells, which are key to fighting infections.

Popular citrus fruits include:

  • grapefruit
  • oranges
  • tangerines
  • lemons
  • limes
  • clementines

Red bell peppers

Red bell peppers contain twice as much vitamin C as citrus. They’re also a rich source of beta carotene.

Broccoli

Broccoli is supercharged with vitamins and minerals. Packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as many other antioxidants and fiber.

Garlic

Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.

Spinach

Not only is Spinach rich with Vitamin C, it’s also filled with numerous antioxidants and beta carotene.

Almonds

Nuts, such as almonds, contain vitamin E and also include healthy fats.

Shellfish

Varieties of shellfish that are high in zinc include:

  • crab
  • clams
  • lobster
  • mussels

Yogurt

Yogurt are a great source of vitamin D, so try to select brands fortified with vitamin D. Vitamin D helps in regulating the immune system and can boost your body’s natural defenses against diseases.

Egypt Made it To the Top of the List Using Oranges

Published

Orange

For years, Egypt has been well known for exporting a lot of our unique ancient Egyptian cotton and as you know, most things we import are from China. Everything you own probably has an imprint on it claiming that it was “made in China“.

Which is why we were genuinely proud and happy to hear that Egypt has finally overtaken Spain as the top orange exporter worldwide!

Spain was always well known for their citrusy oranges that has been a top seller for years and years. We’re glad to finally hear the Egypt beat Spain and is currently the top orange exporter worldwide according to Abdel Hamid el Demerdash, the head of the Agriculture Exporting Council.

The year before, charts and graphs showed that Spain was dominating regarding the orange market and trading. This year though, it is shown that Spain has ranked second to Egypt for the first time in history! What?

According to Demerdash, Egypt tends to earn an income of $1 billion dollars a year off of oranges. Ever since 2017, Egypt was keen on making it to the top of the list by showing people how our country grown oranges are the best. Since then, 17% has increased annually on exporting oranges.

It is known that Brazil, India, China, US and Mexico are the top producers for citrus, but all of their citrus goes into domestic consumption rather than exporting and importing.

Egypt’s cheaper and healthier oranges have been flooding the market world wide and has made it on the top shelves of Myanmar, Japan, Russia, Europe, and even Uruguay!

The government has been working in expanding the amount and acres of farmland throughout the years to allow a larger profit and income to enter our country. Egypt has also been a powerful exporter in terms of Potatoes, Onions, Garlic, and even Grapes!

Egypt had faced difficulties in 2017 when Kenya, Saudi Arabia, and even Sudan had banned our fruits from entering their market due to the amount of pesticides induced in the vegetables and fruits thus violating international health and safety standards! Yikes!

Which is why we’re left dumbfounded and honestly quite impressed at the amount of positive remarks and changes we’ve been making recently! Watch out people because Egypt is booming!
