Help keep your immune system sharp and strong with these 10 delicious, super immune boosting foods!

1. Red bell peppers—red bell peppers have twice as much vitamin C as an orange or grapefruit.


2. Garlic—garlic has been praised for centuries for its infection-fighting properties.


3. Ginger—in addition to fighting colds, ginger can also help lower cholesterol and lessen chronic pain.


4. Leafy greens—greens are rich sources of immune-supporting vitamin E and antioxidants.


5. Almonds, walnuts, and pecans—nuts provide a healthy source of vitamin E plus good fats.


6. Grass-fed beef—beef is rich in vitamin B12, which is crucial for your immune system’s red and white blood cells, and protein is vital for a strong immune response.


7. Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cabbage)— the fatty acid butyrate that is produced when your gut flora breaks down fiber can boost your immune function and protect against autoimmunity.


8. Eggs—eggs are excellent sources of immune-supporting zinc and iron.


9. Wild Alaskan salmon—salmon is a good source of immune-boosting selenium, plus anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats.


10. Orange vegetables (carrots, winter squash, sweet potatoes)—these are rich in carotenoids which support strong immune function.

    • Dear Sherry,
      I have taken your advice for at least five years, if not longer, I promote this way of eating everywhere, when people ask how I stay so thin. I tell them to buy the book and read in order to understand how the body uses food and the fact that the gut is master of nearly all the systems. I hope they follow my suggestions. The only time I have a problem is if I fail to make the right choices…then I am reminded! The regimen is easy to follow and the rewards are endless.
      We wish you and your family a Healthy and Happy New Year. Thank you for all you have done for me and all the other fortunate people who have listened to you and whom you have helped in more ways than you know. God Bless!
