How to support your Immune System- Helpful tips from therabrew founder, Alexsandra Letunica

Immune Support should be considered as high of a priority as washing your hands regularly. Its the little things we can do for ourselves that will give us the greater benefits of staying healthy and well. Our diet plays a key important role in our ability to fight off infections and keep us in a state of optimal functioning. Its true when people say "whatever goes in, comes back out" Now if you're nourishing yourself with whole foods containing vital nutrients and minerals, your body will have a greater chance of absorbing these vital needs and in return supporting your immune system and making you feel better physically and mentally. Something to remember is that what you put into your body will either give you energy or bring you down so optimising your nutrient intake now will only benefit you in the long run and help prevent the onset of disease and illness.             

Now for our helpful tips to support your Immunity. 

Tip 1 ) Include various amounts of Vitamin C. Foods containing high amounts of Vitamin C are powerful immune system boosters and are known to support the body when fighting off infections. Try adding some citrus fruits, spinach, broccoli, peppers and kale, these all contain high amounts of Vitamin C.  

Tip 2 ) Protein. Include protein rich foods into every meal, this includes eggs, beans & legumes, meat and nuts. A diet containing little to none protein has been found to disrupt the bodies immune system. 

Tip 3 ) Get friendly with your herbs and spices. Their health benefits do not nearly get as much attention as do their flavour. Parsley, Thyme, Garlic, Ginger and Turmeric are high in antioxidants and have been used for centuries as antibacterial, anti-fungal agents as well as immune enhancing whole body detoxifiers. Turmeric also reduces many forms of inflammation. 

Tip 4) Probiotics. The good living bacteria found in our gut! Fermented foods such as yoghurt, kefir, kombucha tea and fermented vegetables all contain naturally packed probiotics that support our immune system, aid in digestion and help with nutrient absorption.
