Top 10 Immune Boosting Foods

Our immune systems are on our minds more than ever before. Take control of your health by exercising, getting enough sleep and adding these delicious and healthy foods to your mealtimes.

1. Blueberries

This delicious berry is filled with flavonoids, which can help repair damaged cells and in turn build up your immune system.

2. Pasture-Raised Eggs

Eggs that specifically come from natural farms that take care of their hens will keep your immune system running smoothly thanks to vitamins A, D, and E.

3. Honey

Honey is filled with antioxidants, and antibacterial properties that will work together to build up your immune system.

4. Almonds

Almonds contain vitamin E, which contains antioxidants that work with your immune system to keep you healthy! An added bonus: vitamin E promotes healthy skin, and having healthy skin is an important barrier in protecting yourself from colds and infections.

5. Broccoli

When eaten raw, broccoli is one of the best foods you can have for a healthy, strong, body. Broccoli contains phytochemicals, which work to build up and strengthen your immune system!

6. Kombucha

Fermented foods/drinks are an important tool in boosting your immune system – they help create and maintain health gut flora, and a healthy gut works with your immune system to keep it strong.

7. Garlic

Garlic is another great way to increase your white blood cells and help stave off colds and infections.

8. Guava

Guava is packed with lycopene, as well as tons of vitamin C – both help give your immune system a massive boost.

9. Kiwi

Like garlic, kiwis help increase your white blood cell count – white blood cells help your body fight off infections!

10. Fiddleheads

Fiddlehead ferns grow naturally in Ontario and can be picked on crown land if done in moderation. They are packed with vitamin A, which helps regulate immune function. *Note: Consult with your doctor before eating foraged foods. Boil for 15 minutes before eating. Consult for more information on foraging.
