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.

  1. Hi Chris

    Thanks for your great post. This is perfect going into our southern hemisphere winter now.

    I reckon its best to boost your immune system naturally rather than take lots of medication once the cold hits.

    A question re pomegranates and pecans, the more exotic to me of the foods listed. How would you incorporate that into your diet?

    1. Well I certainly wouldn’t call myself the best cook in the world SJ!!!! 🙂

      My mother eats these sorts of foods around breakfast time, with a healthy oat based cereal (or porridge!). Why don’t you give that sort of route a try?

      Hope it works out for you – and don’t forget to pop back here and let us know what ‘invention’ you came out with!!!

  2. I have a few questions about the foods you list in the immunity boosting ones.

    Are canned cranberries (like candied ones) okay to eat? Do they have the same flavonoids? How often is it “safe” to drink cranberry juice? Can it be drunk daily?

    With the mustard seeds: Do you blend them or crush them or add them to foods in cooking?

    The rest of them are already within my regular diet, but I have not had cranberries (because I don’t like them) and mustard seeds because I didn’t realize they were good for a person.

    Thank you and I  look forward to your reply.

    1. Hi Karin!

      First off the bat – no idea about the mustard seeds (my partner always handles them!). 

      Canned fruit is more often than not, sweetened in some way, so I would always go for the natural version of cranberries if at all possible.

      Hope this helps.
