Foods To Build Up Your Immune System

Your immune system is really important, especially if you want to make sure that you are likely to live long and to be as healthy as possible. It’s a good idea to try and build up your immune system as much as possible, and the good news is that there are plenty of ways you can do just that. One way is to eat foods that are designed to help build up and boost your immune system. So which ones are those? Here are some of the best of these that you might like to consider.


First of all, a special mention for fruit. Any fruits out there are basically going to be good for building up your immune system so this is something that you should definitely try to eat as much of as possible. As long as you are eating plenty of fruits, you’ll find that you are a lot healthier on the whole. One way to get more fruit into your diet is to do as Smoothie King does and make juices and smoothies out of oranges, kiwis and apples and more. That way, you can get loads of fruit in your system right away.


There are not many passionate home cooks or professional chefs who don’t love garlic. It is truly delicious, it goes in a huge number of savory dishes, and it’s easy to use. And it happens to be one of the very best foods you can eat in order to boost your immune system so that is another  reason to eat plenty of it and cook with it. It has antibacterial and antiviral properties, so make sure that you always have some in the house and you should benefit from it in a huge way.


Who doesn’t love mushrooms? Again, they are an ingredient that you can use in so many dishes and in so many ways, and they are actually a lot more versatile than people tend to give them credit for. They are especially useful if you are trying to ward off a cold or flu, so consider adding some mushroom to your chicken soup next time you are feeling a little worse for wear. You’ll be amazed at how much of a difference this can make to your health in general, and all just by eating some delicious mushrooms.

Brightly-Colored Vegetables

They say that you should aim to eat a rainbow of vegetables. What they mean by this is that the more you eat of different colors, the more likely it is that you will be getting all the nutrients and minerals that you really need. In particular, brightly-colored vegetables are likely to be particularly good for this, so those are the ones to aim for as much as possible.

With more of those in your diet, you will be able to expect a much stronger immune system in general – and it’s definitely worth doing it for that reason.

  1. I have been enjoying the posts on nutrition and healthy eating. Currently, I enjoy sharing with “What’s For Dinner” link-up. But was wondering if you would be interested in doing a whole foods link up? I have participated as a host for other link-up posts and would love to be a part of a new one for healthier food recipes. Thank you for your consideration of this idea. Kind regards, have a great week ahead!
