natural remedies to boost immune health

my families favorites

  • Elderberry: Elderberry flowers and berries come packed with vitamins and antioxidants, which make them the perfect tools for boosting the body’s immunity. It is also good for inflammation and stress, and it has been proven to help ease flu and cold symptoms. 
  • Echinacea: Echinacea works by boosting the number of white blood cells you have in your body. The white blood cells fight germs and infections, so boosting their ranks will make your immune system stronger. 
  • Essential oils: Some of the most powerful essential oils for the immune system include tea tree, cinnamon, lemon, eucalyptus, rosemary, and clove bud. 
  • Zinc: Zinc is essential for the healing of wounds, supporting normal growth, and maintaining the strength of the immune system. The body also uses zinc to make proteins and DNA, which is why it is an essential nutrient for pregnant women, breastfeeding moms, and growing children. 
  • Vitamin D: As mentioned earlier, vitamin D is an immune modulator. When you have low vitamin D, you will see an increase in autoimmunity and a higher susceptibility to infection. 
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. It contributes to the immune system by supporting various cellular functions. It also fights free radicals in the body and helps prevent many cardiovascular diseases and promotes healthy growth and aging.
