FOODS THAT BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Fruits (organic) - blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, elderberries, pommagranates, apples (green have lowest sugar), papaya, citrus fruits.
Vegetables (organic) - cruciferous veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, kale, bok choy, and other veggies like, garlic cloves, ginger root, onions (all colours), leafy greens, and radishes. Make sure to get in a good variety of vegetables high in beta carotene, like butternut and spaghetti squash, sweet potato, carrots, parsnips, rutabaga and turnip.
Fungi (organic)- Shitake and mitake mushrooms are best mushrooms for increasing your immune system, however oyster, and button mushrooms among other varieties also have good immune boosting nutrients.
Nuts & Seeds (organic & raw) - brazil nuts, almonds (blanched), walnuts, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds
Fish (Wild Caught) - salmon, cod, mackerel are the top fish for immune health
Herbs & Spices (fresh organic) - turmeric (add black pepper to activate the curcumin), Coriander, cumin, basil, parsley
Dark Chocolate:D - 70% cocoa and higher is best and always organic!
Keep PROCESSED SUGARS out of your diet - just ONE teaspoon of sugar can drop your immune system for up to 8 HOURS.
& MAKE SURE TO GET ENOUGH SLEEP! This is MOST IMPORTANT
SUPPLEMENTS TO SUPPORT IMMUNE HEALTH EACH DAY & ONES TO KEEP ON HAND FOR WHEN THE FLU HITS!
..OFFERING MY PRACTITIONER DISCOUNT - 30-40% off, for any product. You just need to pick it up yourself and e-transfer the day I order:)
Probiotics - REMEMBER...if your gut isn't healthy, your body won't be healthy and cannot heal. Up to 80% of your immune system resides in your gut, called the Peyer's Patches. The best one on the market is HMF Intensive (now in shelf stable) from Seroyal/Genestra. Purest and has all of the strains.
Vitamin D3 - Helps to increase your immune system. I like D-Mulsion 2500 IU drops from Seroyal, or Vit D3 K2 drops or caps from CanPrev. Good value for the amount and also top quality. Absorbs well!
Vitamin C - powerful antioxidant to help with immune health! You need one with bioflavonoids to help with absorption but also to prevent gastric irritation. BIO-C from BIOMED and C+Biofizz (powder) from Designs For Health, both have bioflavonoids and are in my opinion the best sources for how well they absorb.
Quercetin - it's great for histamine issues/allergies and is a powerful antioxidant which helps build your immune system. I like AOR brand the best as it has has the best source of quercetin.
Zinc - helps prevent colds and flues, but also great for sore throats and STRESS...of any kind! ...also great for acne!! I like BIOMED'S Zinc/Copper (best source of zinc), AOR's zinc lozenges, and Pure Encapsulation's or CanPrev's zinc for source and price.
NAC (N-Acetyl Cystein) - It is a precursor to glutathione, and glutathione is a master antixidant that we naturally have in our cells when we are young and as we age it declines. NAC helps to raise glutathione levels and restore immune health. I recommend NAC from Pure Encapsulations for quality and strength.
Omegas - Helps with immune health and also cell, heart and hormone health. The top ones are Omega 800 and Super EFA Forte caps or liquid from Seroyal/Genestra, or SPM Active from Metagenics.
Pure Genomics Multi (Pure Encapsulations) - An optimum dose multi with B complex(for RBC health, iron levels, energy and STRESS) already added, high dose zinc, however, I still take extra in flu season or times of stress. It also has high amounts of beta carotene to build the immune system to help prevent flues, colds, cancer etc. It has a formula that helps correct genetic abnormalities and is economical. The best thing is YOU ONLY NEED 1/DAY.
SOME ADDITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS TO KEEP ON HAND...that are a MUST!!!
