Foods That Boost Your Immune System
I was more than surprised to find out that your body’s fight against illness starts off in your mouth – did you know that saliva is packed with powerful antimicrobials like lysozyme, alpha-amylase and lactoferrin?
It’s a pretty hard task for ANY germs to get past this initial line of defence – those tough cookies that do manage it…end up having to take on our stomach’s hydrochloric acid.
If they are hard enough to win that battle – they then have to take on our digestive system which holds special proteins and chemical compounds.
Finally the germs will reach our own personal army of good bacteria – our final, powerful, line of defence.
This line of defence is what we need to feed – we need to keep this bacteria in tip-top condition!
A well thought out, and healthy balanced diet, that supports your immune system, is your best defence in avoiding sickness bugs in the first place.
The foods that are covered in the infographic above are great examples of what you need to eat to keep your good bacteria in order and boost immunity.
