Immune fighting foods…

30/09/2012

Here are some top foods to help fight the bugs and boost your immune system
Onions and Garlic contain allicin, allicin is thought to have the ability to slow and kill a variety of viruses and bacteria. However, it’s the raw variety that really has the immune punch.

Raw garlic and onions
Add some raw onion to your salads and use fresh garlic in your dressings.  A little side salad with these little immune fighting gems could really help.

Lemons
Include some lemon juice (vitamin C) in the dressing and make a big chicken and vegetable soup

Add some cayenne pepper and turmeric for extra anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits.

Bone broth or mushroom broth
Fantastic for supporting the immune system, full of minerals and potassium and are great to fighting those winter viruses.

Ginger tea
Natural anti-inflammatory and gets the taste buds zinging!

Immune Tea
Another fave of mine is Hibiscus and Rosehip Tea with a little Manuka honey.  Delicious drink with benefits!  Anti-oxidants from the tea and anti-bacterial affects from the honey.   Beautiful deep red tea tastes delicious.
