10 Foods to Fight Immunity

Fall is upon us, and colds, the flu, and other ailments are in air.

Check out our 10 easy to find food items that will help promote immunity and overall wellness.

• Yogurt, kefir and kim chee: These cultured foods are high in probiotics, the beneficial bacteris that help to maintain immunity in the gastrointestinal tract.

• Sweet potatoes: Approximately ½ cup of sweet potatoes provides up to 40 percent of the recommended daily allowance for vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene.

Sweet Potatoes are also rich in Vitamin A, which helps to protect mucus membranes while maintaining immune response in these sensitive tissues.

• Green tea: EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) and L-Theanine are two powerful compounds found in green tea that help to keep you healthy.

L-Theanine in particular supports the immune system's fight against foreign invaders, while ECGC protect cells against damage and offers numerous additional health benefits.

• Chicken soup: Studies show that chicken soup can reduce symptoms of cold and flu, and support the function of immune cells.

Please consider adding fresh vegetables and herbs for extra nutritional value.

• Pumpkin seeds: These seeds contain approximately 10 mg of zinc per 100 grams of seeds.

Zinc is a trace mineral that provides critical support to immune cells.

• Mushrooms: Culinary medicinal mushrooms such as shiitake and maitake are high in beta glucans, vitamin D and other powerful compounds that help support immune cells, promote healthy digestion and promote general good health.

• Broccoli: Cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts, are potent sources of powerful immune supporting nutrients such as vitamin-C, beta-carotene, trace minerals zinc and selenium, and others to bolster immunity and support overall health.

• Chia seeds: These tiny seeds are high in antioxidants, nutrients and protein.

They also contain a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and they support glucose metabolism. Chia seeds offer a significant boost to vital energy.

• Garlic: Used medicinally for millennia, garlic is rich in powerful beneficial components, including allicin, a sulfur containing compound that helps fight foreign invaders.

Garlic offers potent antimicrobial and immune support. Garlic promotes cardiovascular health as well.

• Burdock root: This hearty root contains a compound called inulin that helps to promote strong immunity, balance blood sugar and support organs and tissues.

This hearty root is typically prepared in soups, salads or as a tea.

Unfortunately, that's all the time we have today.

We wish you and your family the very best in health and happiness!
