The food you eat can help build a stronger immune system.
A person's immune system and their nutrition are closely related. Inadequacies in a person’s diet leads to lowered immunity, which in turn compromises the body’s response to an infection. Using food to establish a strong immune system reduces the risk of developing an infection. If an infection does take hold, food can be a powerful tool to support your body to fight the infection.
The number one thing to look for in a food to help maintain great health is a food the is nutritionally dense. This means food that contains a high quality nutrients, including macro nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats), as well as micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).
Micronutrients play an important role in the formation of antibodies and development of the immune system, and deficiencies in certain micronutrients are linked to an increased susceptibility to infection. You can get a range of micronutrients from fresh, natural food sources. You may also like to supplement with high quality supplements (speak to a relevant health practitioner).
