It is hard to believe, but back to school and cooler weather is just around the corner. Spending more time inside close to other people makes it easier to spread germs related to the common cold and viruses like the flu and the delta variant of the coronavirus currently sweeping our nation.

So now is the time to strengthen your immune system with healthy foods and a well-balanced diet; what we eat impacts all aspects of our health. A sensible diet helps with weight management, blood sugar, heart health, mental wellness, proper sleep, and other matters related to pre-existing conditions and the simple aging process. My recommended immune-boosting foods follow:

Fight germs with these immunity-building foods.

  • Elderberry
  • Acai Berry
  • Citrus Fruits
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Turmeric
  • Yogurt
  • Broccoli
  • Chicken Soup
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Green Tea
  • Spinach
  • Red Peppers
  • Oysters
  • Shellfish
  • Sunflower Seeds

Vitamins and supplements may also help build immunity, so consider my Immunity Boost Bundle in addition to a healthy diet. This combination of three immune-boosting supplements includes my proprietary formulas for Immune Support, Vitamin C, and Zinc.

Supplements are a critical component of a well-balanced diet.
