Immune Boosting foods
Immune Boosting foods are really important to your overall well being.
You need to make sure that you are eating the right foods if you want to take care of your immune system .
It’s important to be sure that you are doing what you can to maintain a healthy immune system, and as ‘we are what we eat’, then it’s obvious that you need to eat immune boosting foods.
So, what are they?
Well here are a few things that should set you on the right track, and a few others that you should try to avoid.
This is not an exhaustive list – but it should give you a pretty good starting point in identifying the right foods for you to eat.
The good news is that eating immune boosting foods really does just mean having a good, varied healthy diet.
You need to make sure that you are eating fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, seeds and foods with proteins.
One of the very best immune boosting foods is broccoli, but there are many other ‘superfoods’ out there’
Typically, they’re full of fibres and vitamins, which are important for a healthy diet.
Oily fish and lean meats can help to lower your cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart attacks and depression and generally help you feel your best.
I believe the most important thing is to eat foods you enjoy.
There are lots of great choices, and if you try to force yourself to eat things you don’t enjoy, then you will probably not be successful. So choose wisely – pick those things that you like which are also healthy!
Eat as healthily as you can, and limit the bad things (or if you can, eliminate them all together!)
Foods that can harm your immune system
And as you might expect, that things that will harm your immune system are generally things that you know are bad for you anyway. Things like sugar, nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, and processed foods generally.
Watch out for specific things that can harm your immune system. Other foods that can cause problems, sometimes with headaches, nasal congestion, upset stomach, racing pulse, mood changes or tiredness are cows”s milk, cheese, eggs, wheat, soy, tomatoes and corn.
It’s a great idea to keep a diary of what you eat and how you feel so you will develop a real understanding of what works for you.
And remember, it’s your diary, not for anyone else, so there is no reason not to be completely honest!
