The immune system is our body’s natural defense system. It’s an intricate network of cells, tissues, and organs that band together to defend our body against invaders. Those invaders can include bacteria, viruses, parasites, even a fungus, all with the potential to make us sick.
Our immune system has to work hard all through the year, whether it’s offering protection from a flu virus or an infection that could happen at any time. Therefore, I like to ensure that I consume the foods and supplements that will revitalize my body systems and become less susceptible to harmful compounds. All three items listed here to boost immunity health, plus some other tips, can increase our wellness habits in holistic health.
Green Tea has numerous health benefits, from reducing inflammation to protecting a healthy heart and brain function, to supporting immunity, and improving metabolism while regulating blood sugar. Green tea is an immune booster, but to receive the full antioxidant benefits, it is suggested to not drink it with milk. Milk may bind with the beneficial compounds, isolating the properties away from the body. *Green Tea contains a small amount of caffeine, and should not be used in large quantities for women who are pregnant/breastfeeding, persons with anxiety disorders, or irregular heartbeat but may consume up to 2 cups/day.
