6 Foods and Supplements to Strengthen Your Immunity

The best offense is a good defense.  My kitchen contains foods & supplements to strengthen our family’s immune systems. During this pandemic (in addition to my smoothies), I have stocked up on these immune boosting foods and supplements. 

FOODS 

Garlic

Garlic contains an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial compound called Allicin.  It helps help the immune system fight germs and aids your adrenals in lowering stress hormones. 

Crush garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes to boost garlic’s healthy compounds.

Leafy Greens

We have in our fridge, kale, spinach, dandelion, bok choy, broccoli, gai lan, romaine lettuce etc.

Greens are nutrient dense!  Leafy greens are rich in folate and Vitamins A & C.  They are also high in fibre and naturally low in fat and sodium – supporting  your immune system, boosting digestive enzymes, and support optimal gut health.

I prefer my veggies lightly steamed with some fermented garlic as a topping.  Or I will add two cups of greens to either the POWER or FLOW smoothies.

Citrus Fruits 

Citrus Fruit

A box of oranges, bag of clementine and some lemons/limes are staples during every grocery trip.  Occasionally, I will also purchase grapefruit. We eat one citrus fruit a day for Vitamins C and just to feel uplifted!

A orange contains about 51mg of Vitamin C, grapefruit 38mg and lemon 30mg. Citrus fruits also provide fiber, potassium, and help you absorb iron.

When my throat is sore, I will eat about 3 oranges and/or grapefruit with a sprinkle of Himalayan salt in one sitting. The salt helps kill some of the bacteria in the mouth and enhances the taste of the citrus   

I use white vinegar (1/3) / water (2/3) mixture or a vegetable/fruit wash to clean the produce and remove surface residue and pesticides.  I have the produce bathe in this mixture for at least 15 minutes and then I rinse it off with clean water. 

SUPPLEMENTS: Used Only When a Extra Boost is Needed

Vitamin C

I use Emergen-C containing 1000mg of Vitamin C (more than 10 oranges and other antioxidants) to provide my body with a defensive energy boost!

It is a nice alternative to just plain water. I also add it to the FLOW smoothie.  

Bee Proplis

Bee Propolis is a “bodyguard in a bottle”.  This spray has germ fighting properties and over 300 beneficial vitamins, minerals, and compounds .

This one is for the offense.  Whenever I feel a sore throat developing, I spray my mouth with bee propolis. I have two sprays at home, one for kids and one for adults. The kid’s version is alcohol-free. This tastes like liquid honey.  

Black Seed Oil Oregano 

 

This one is also for the offense.  When a cold or flu hits, I use this to knock the virus out of my system. If I catch it early it works like magic.

This product combines pure Black Seed Oil and wild-crafted Oregano Oil to provide a knock-out punch to harmful bacteria, viruses, and other invading organisms. 

I add three full drops to an empty vegetable/gelatin capsule and consume with water. 


In addition to these foods and supplements, I calm my nervous system and lower my stress levels through a combination of meditation, exercise, massage and warm salt baths.
