6 Foods That Will Boost Your Immune System


Even if you are in the best health of your life, you could always use a boost to your immune system. And getting that boost is as easy as adding a few delicious additions to your diet. Here are 6 of the best (and tastiest) foods you can add to your meals to help your immune system.

 

Blueberries

Blueberries contain anthocyanin, which is an immune system boosting antioxidant. It is especially useful in boosting a person’s respiratory tract immune defense system.

 

Dark Chocolate

That’s right! Your dark chocolate craving is actually great for you due to an antioxidant called theobromine, which helps to protect cells from free radicals.

 

Broccoli

You may not think it, but broccoli is a wonderful source of vitamin C. It also contains sulforaphane, an antioxidant that supports immune systems.

 

Spinach

There’s a reason our favourite sailor, Popeye, loves spinach. That’s because it is rich in essential nutrients and antioxidants that support immune systems including flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamin C and vitamin E.

 

Ginger

Ginger is an ingredient that can be easily added into tea. Add a couple slices into your nightly tea for a daily dose of anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties and other health benefits.

 

Almonds

Almonds are another great source of Vitamin E, manganese, magnesium and fiber. Plus, it is a delicious and super accessible snack to help your immune system!

 

Food isn’t the only way to boost your immune system, though. You can also implement important lifestyle choices such as avoiding smoking, exercising regularly, getting regular sleep and washing your hands correctly.
