Your body is pretty impressive. Just think of all the amazing things it does without you even realizing. Your immune system, for example, is constantly working over-time to protect your body from the bombardment of toxins and illnesses present in our modern environment. But as amazing as your immune system is, it still needs a little help from time to time, in fact, with the prevalence of chemicals and carcinogens in everything from the food we eat to the air we breathe your immune system needs all the help it can get!
While there are many types of artificial immunity boosters available, you should do your body a favour and choose healthier more natural alternatives.
Boost Your Immune With Garlic
Raw garlic in the diet is very beneficial, however cooking garlic can destroy some of its health-promoting compounds. One way to get around this problem is to take Kyolic aged garlic extract. The natural ageing process increases antioxidant levels and enhances garlic's immune boosting powers. It also has the added benefit of being odourless so you avoid the strong smell.
Kick Your Immune System Into High Gear with Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an extremely important nutrient for boosting immunity. Include plenty of foods high in vitamin C in the diet, including fresh fruits and vegetables, especially citrus fruits, kiwi fruit, strawberries, broccoli, cabbage and parsley. A vitamin C supplement is also recommended to ward off colds and flu, take around 2-3 g a day.
Give Your Immune System the Ultimate Boost With Oil Pulling
