Monsoon is the season when one tends to consume oilier and spicier food without realising its ill-effects on our health. With the pandemic it is important to maintain one’s immunity through seasonal changes as well.

Monsoon brings multiple infections, allergies, rashes, digestive problems, malaria and other such diseases. In order to prepare your body to fight against such problems, there is a need to consume the right kind of food. Humidity in the air slows down digestion and may even lead to gastrointestinal disorders. Seasonal fruits help aid digestion, metabolism and general health,” explains Rohit Shelatkar, VP at Vitabiotics and Fitness & Nutrition Expert.

The expert suggests a few fruits that should be consumed during this season.

* Lychee/Litchi: They are a great source of antioxidants that help asthmatic patients breathe better and also help the body to lose weight faster. It contains Vitamin C and has anti-ageing properties. Litchi also includes fibres helping in managing acidity and indigestion.

It is also very high in fibre, making the pear an excellent snack for those on a diet. It is a must during monsoons.
