The closest term in Ayurveda* to Immunity is Ojas. Figs are a fruit that has a high amount of Ojas in them and boosts Immunity. They are also high fibre food and are a great help in issues with constipation. If fresh is not available, dried figs should be eaten after soaking them overnight. Figs are cooling and thus a great fruit for Summer.
*Ayurveda is one of the oldest systems of traditional natural healing in the world. Also known as the sister of Yoga, it stresses deeply on nutrition and lifestyle for optimal health. Ayurveda believes that there are three bio energies ie Vata ( Air and Ether Elements), Pitta ( Fire and Water ) and Kapha ( Earth and Water) within the body and their balance or imbalance determines the state of good or ill health .
