7 thoughts on “What vitamins, food are recommended to boost immune system?”

  1. 1- Ayurvedic Neem Capsules boost your immune system

    2- Chawanprash boosts your immune system

    3- green leafy vegetables do the same

  2. Here is a list of things you should eat and do to improve your immune system.
    Eat foods that contain vitamins A, B6, C, and E; omega-3 and 6 fatty acids; and the minerals beta-carotene, iron and zinc.
    Here is a list of foods that contain such nutrients:
    Garlic (powerful antioxidant and natural antibiotic)
    Onions (natural antibiotic)
    Yogurt (stimulate macrophages – cells that eat germs)
    Citrus fruits (vitamin A and C)
    Broccoli (vitamin C)
    Grains (vitamin B6 and selenium)
    Nuts (vitamin E and omega fatty acids)
    Yams (beta-carotene)
    Carrots (beta-carotene)
    Fatty fish (omega fatty acids)
    Herbs and supplements
    Selenium (very good supplement)
    Golden seal
    Cat’s claw

  3. To boost your immune system, I highly recommend esterC & marine beta carotene (algaes – spirulina, chlorella & dunaliella)

    Fish oil is highly recommended for the brain and stabilizing moods. I would recommend kelp or iodine supplementation for the brain’s concentration & memory.

    I don’t know anything about ginkgo biloba but this article from the national institute of health sounds very promising –

    Ginkgo is used for the treatment of numerous conditions, many of which are under scientific investigation. Available evidence demonstrates ginkgo’s efficacy in the management of intermittent claudication, Alzheimer’s/multi-infarct dementia, and “cerebral insufficiency” (a syndrome thought to be secondary to atherosclerotic disease, characterized by impaired concentration, confusion, decreased physical performance, fatigue, headache, dizziness, depression, and anxiety).

    Although not definitive, there is promising early evidence favoring the use of ginkgo for memory enhancement in healthy subjects

  4. Hi, as for vitamins and supplements, I recommend the Nutrilite® Triple Guard Echinacea.

    Nutrilite® Triple Guard Echinacea is an immune-boosting supplement made from echinacea (purple coneflower and angustifolia). Our formula blends 3 extracts from 2 forms of the plant – 2 from the root, 1 from the leaf. Combining both forms gives the broadest boost to your body’s natural defenses.

    We use organic-certified echinacea, guaranteed for purity and potency, and standardize all extract levels. Certified kosher and halal.

  5. The single most important thing we can do to prevent disease is to eat more fruit, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grains. These foods contain compounds that influence the makeup of our cells and enhance cell-to-cell communication, most are great sources of antioxidants – chemicals that benefit our health by neutralizing harmful molecules called free radicals.

    Because eating too few of the right nutrients can weaken your body and allow germs and disease to gain a foothold, a good diet is the first and most important way to stay well.

    We now know that B-cells, T-cells, phagocytes and natural killer cells cannot do their best at quashing cancer cells and other dangerous invaders, such as bacteria and viruses, without strong backup from the vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals found in healthy foods.

    Some of the dietary superstars are tomatoes, blueberries, broccoli, garlic, carrots, yoghurt and salt water fish.

    Herbs such as Echinacea, Astragalus membranaceous (also called ‘huang qi’), Viscum album, Inula helenium, Withania somnifera, Hypoxis Rooperi (extract of African Potato), Mentha piperita, Solidago virgaurea, Crataegus oxycanthoides, Schizandra chinensis, and Olea europea (extract of Olive leaf), all have powerful and organic ingredients that go a long way in helping you strengthen your immune system against illness, disease, and infection.
