7 Great Ways to Boost Your Immune System Naturally

Becoming ill is simply unavoidable, there is no way anyone could pass through life without becoming ill at some point along the way. Unfortunately though some of us have drawn the short straw when it comes to illness and are more prone to becoming ill than others. This is the case because not all immune systems work in identical ways. Regardless of  this fact everybody is capable of boosting their own immune system naturally and here are the top 7 Ways.

Get a Little Sunshine!
 An easy way to boost you immune system is to spend short periods in the sun without applying any sun cream. The reason behind this is that exposure to the sun provides your body with Vitamin D, which plays a major role in immune system functioning and is not contained in many foods.

Drink ImmunoPro
ImmunoPro is a natural protein powder, specifically designed for enhancing your immune system. It contains the finest native whey concentrate. This concentrate is called Proserum and is made from the milk of cows that have been 100% grass fed and that graze all year round on entirely natural pastures.

Vitamin D
 Vitamin D is not as well known as many other vitamins however it is just as important. This is because it enhances the production of B-cells, which are the immune cells that produce the antibodies that destroy bacteria. You can get Vitamin D naturally by increasing your intake of seeds, grains and vegetable oils.

Embrace the Garlic
Throw aside the worry of smelly breath as Garlic is an excellent way of boosting your immune system naturally. Eating Garlic results in an increase of infection-fighting white cells which will help your body to fight illness much more quickly.


Don't Be Shy of Fatty Acids
 People hear or see the word fat and instantly jump to the conclusion that it must be bad for them. This is not the case when it comes to omega-3 fatty acids which are a brilliant way to strengthen your immune system, They work by increasing the activity of cells known as phagocytes which engulf bacteria that could make you ill.

Vitamin C
This is probably the most well-known immune enhancing vitamin there is as there has been more research carried out on its role as an immune enhancer than any other vitamin. You can ensure that you have enough Vitamin C each day by eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables such as oranges, strawberries, broccoli and bell peppers.


Ditch the Sugar
Sugar has devastating effects on your immune system, so it is best if you reduce your intake in order to enhance your immune system. The reason sugar is bad for your immune system is that it causes the increase in hormones that suppress your immune system. Instead you should consumes fruits and vegetables that will supply you with the vital vitamins and minerals that will enhance your immune system.
