Our lifestyle & diets affect the strength of our immune system & its ability to fight off infections. Unhealthy eating habits & lack of exercise has been shown to decrease the strength of our immune system & makes it more vulnerable to infections. Now more than ever before, healthy eating is important for you to build your immunity.
Our immune systems need enough energy to make immune cells, which act as building blocks, and our enzymes, which need vitamins and minerals to work effectively. Vitamins C, D, B6 & B12 as well as folate, zinc, copper, iron, selenium & essential fatty acids are among the vitamins & minerals that our bodies need to work effectively.
One of the best immune-boosting foods is one of mother nature’s sweet holy grails being fruit all because of their high content of polyphenols, especially flavonoids. Polyphenols are also found in nuts and vegetables, tea and coffee. Remember for your body to benefit from all of this you need to be consistent in your healthy eating habits. It is important for you to eat healthy all year round and not just during the winter season. Quick fixes can help but the long term health is achieved through consistent all year-round healthy eating.
