Immunity Boosting Winter Health Tips

Home » Health Awareness » Immunity Boosting Winter Health Tips

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:

1. Probiotics

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.

5. Turmeric tea
