Stay Healthy With These Natural Immune Boosters

If you don’t want that kind of gift that keeps on giving, focus on these immunity-boosting tips to keep healthy this season.

  • Bone Broth ~ The best thing to bring everyone to the table is warm, soul-soothing soup or stew. You can make this even more beneficial though by adding bone broth to the mix. Bone broth has an amino acid called glutamine in it. It helps your white blood cells, and your muscles to recuperate and nourishes the entire body filled with the amino acid called glutamine. It helps build white blood cells. You can use it in soups, stews or use it in place of olive oil when cooking. I really love the taste of LonoLife Beef and Chicken. It comes in powder form so perfect for keeping in your pantry. It also tastes really good just by itself mixed with some hot water. Yum

  • Fermented Foods ~ Recent research has provided us with a new astounding fact – your gut is home to a second brain. It may sound crazy, but it's true. The good news is that you can keep those beneficial bacteria that flourish there to keep you healthy thriving and strong. The best way to do this is to start developing a fondness for fermented foods. Things like kimchi, the popular Korean side dish served with every meal, as well as sauerkraut,, or even pickles, to name a few. as well as miso, kefir and kombucha. Make Your own kombucha with one of these kits

  • Mushrooms ~ The kids might not be happy about this, but mushrooms have beta glucans in them which help strengthen your immunity and block infections. You can eat whatever mushrooms you enjoy for this effect. Put them in your soups, add them to your mixed veggies, top your salad with them raw or cooked, chop them up and include them in just about anything. I personally don't like mushrooms but I have them every day in this tea I make this tea and add in cacao for yummy hot cocoa with lots of immune-boosting benefits. and in my superfood shake.

  • Sweat It Out ~ Regular exercise produces endorphines, the happy hormone that fights stress. When you work out regularly, your body's immune system gets stronger by producing more infection and cold fighting antibodies and white blood cells. Also, raising your heart rate will also flush out toxins in your lungs and a rise in temperature also makes it harder for bacteria to grow in your body. Check out the article here.

  • Soak Up Some Sun ~ Most people don’t get enough vitamin D in their lives. It might be cold out, but grab your coat and let your face get some sun. Even if you commit to a ten-minute walk per day, it makes a load of difference throughout the winter months. To supplement, there are certain foods you can eat. Cook up fatty fish like salmon or serve more eggs, particularly the yolks. These have robust sources of vitamin D for everyone to enjoy

  • Get Enough Rest ~ Maybe those hibernating bears are on to something. When your immunity is wearing down, one of the best things your body needs is to simply rest. It’s during the state of rest that your white blood cells work their magic, so take a load off and get in that nap or go to bed earlier every night. Take care of your health now because if you don’t build up your immunity, chances are you’ll come down with something right before that big party you’ve been looking forward to all season.
