What Foods Increase White Blood Cell Count?

Answer

To increase white blood cell count and improve immune function, one should make sure he or she is consuming enough folic acid (a B vitamin present in spinach, citrus fruits, and certain beans). Green tea and other antioxidant-rich consumables also awaken the immune system, allowing the body to produce white blood cells. Eating enough protein is another certain way to get the body's immune system to function at its best. Meat, eggs, cheese, and soy products are all high-protein foods one should eat regularly.
