Who doesn't want fewer colds, softer skin or youthful vitality? Frances Sheridan Goulart, author of the ever-popular Super Healing Foods (McGraw-Hill), now brings you a program for the 25 foods that strengthen the body's six immune centers and help heal and reverse the most common ailments.

Super Immunity Foods: A Complete Program to Boost Wellness, Speed Recovery, and Keep Your Body Strong (McGraw-Hill) focuses on the top 25 foods and provides a simple plan that you can easily incorporate into your lifestyle.

With delicious recipes and complete menus, the newer, healthier you is just within reach. Ready to achieve optimal health with the top 25 immunity-boosting foods?

Incorporate these 25 superfoods into your daily diet and you'll build immunity that beats disease and slows down aging while increasing your energy.

The 25 Super Immunity Foods

Apples
Berries
Broccoli

"You can cover this list of foods over a period of time," Goulart says. "You don't have to try to incorporate all 25 into your diet at one time.

"I always try to encourage my clients to eat a wider variety of foods. We tend to fall into a habit of eating the same foods. I urge everyone to try new foods."

OK, makes sense to me, Frances. But what about... gulp!... sea veggies?!

"Sea veggies are so rich in nutrients that you only need a small amount," Goulart notes. "You don't have to track down the actual sea veggies.

"Instead, you can find little shakers of granulated sea veggies and use it as a substitute for pepper when dining."

The afflictions your new diet will combat

Acne and Other Skin Disorders
Arthritis
Allergies
The Common Cold
Depression
Diabetes
Headaches
Cancer
Heart Disease
Insomnia
Indigestion
Osteoporosis
Vision Disorders

"Soon after you start on my eating plan you'll feel more energy and find yourself clear headed," Goulart says. "The 25 super immunity foods help with your cravings for sugar so a nice side effect is weight loss."

Goulart says a good juicer makes healthy eating a breeze. You can start your day with a nice glass of fruit or veggie juice.

"It's a better eye-opener than coffee," she promises.

Chew on these food facts from Frances

- Dicing fruit into smaller pieces keeps oxidation to a minimum and preserves vitamin C.

- Cooked broccoli is higher in the antioxidants called carotenes, but raw broccoli is higher in vitamin C.

- Apple peels are rich in a compound that helps to halt the growth of cancer cells.

- Orange and tangerine rinds are a good source of probiotics for digestive health.
