Immunity can be improved through lifestyle and nutritional choices as well as adding herbal, vitamin and mineral support where needed. Nutritionally, this means eating lots of brightly coloured fruits and veggies, for example blackcurrants, blueberries, oranges, kiwifruit, capsicums, cabbages, broccoli and cauliflower. To increase vitamin C in your diet - eat plenty of them raw and fresh. Healthy nuts and seeds, such as Brazil nuts, walnuts, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, as well as omega-3 rich foods, can be helpful as they provide essential minerals and fatty acids for immune function.
Prebiotic foods such as leeks, onions, garlic, artichokes and bananas are beneficial food for your ‘good’ gut bacteria - helping them grow. Adding probiotic foods such as sauerkraut, yogurt and kefir helps to colonise your gut with the goodies. A probiotic supplement designed specifically for immunity may be worth taking too. Healthy gut flora has been linked with improved immune health.
