The human health is determined by a blend of genetic, epigenetic, environmental, nutritional and psychological factors. Resistance to viruses and other bacterial and fungal diseases is governed by the genetic makeup of individual human beings and intake of plant foods which have immunomodulatory effects due to their bioactive compounds. Hippocrates rightly said that “let food be the medicine and medicine be the food”. Since ages the herbal extracts are given to patient suffering from various ailments or disorders in Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Chinese and other health care systems globally. Immunity booster plants from among foods, vegetables, fruits, medicinal and aromatic and forestry species possessing vitamins like A, B6, B12, C, D and E as well as mineral nutrients like Zinc, Iron, Copper, Manganese, Magnesium, Chromium, Selenium and bioactive compounds like Anthocyanin, Carotenoids, phenols, Flavonoids etc. These compounds act as antioxidants which absorb the radical oxygen in human body and thus avoid their harmful effects. Therefore, it is pertinent to identify strong immunity booster or immunity modulators plants for their use in pandemic situation like Covid-19.  Use of vegetables, fruits, spices, medicinal and herbal and forestry species as food or their decoctions as drink are known to help immunity boosting for human health. However, their industrial formulations would pay dividend towards health care systems because of their regular availability. This book titled as “Plants for Immunity” cover such aspects. The book chapters are resolved into various sections like vision papers; field crops; medicinal plants; spices and condiments; vegetables, fruits, shrubs and trees; special food sources. Hope this book will serve useful purpose to health and agriculture experts, research scholars and entrepreneurs.
