Did you know that your digestive system accounts for around 70% of your immunity function?!
This is why what you eat is so important in building up immunity especially in the winter months.
Here are our top tips to boost your immunity:
Eating probiotic-rich naturally fermented foods like sauerkraut, pickles, kimchi, or kombucha gives your gut bug population a boost and keeps your immune system strong.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar contains pre-biotic fibers, or food for the PRObiotics! Feed your bugs!
3. Cut the Sugar
If you feel even a tickle in your throat, immediately get rid of ALL sources of added sugar in your diet. Sugar creates an inflammatory response throughout the body, and your germ-fighting white blood cells will be occupied with the task of fighting that all-over inflammation instead of being free to tackle an invading virus or bacteria.
4. Lemon & Ginger
Lemon has natural antibacterial properties and a high dose of vitamin c, known to aid in immune response. Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory and can aid a sore throat and break up congestion, if you’re already feeling a cold.
