Eat oranges, chew ginger and drink the latest concoction on the market to stay fit and healthy, seems like the only advice on everyone's lips right now. But, is it really possible to boost your immune system through these methods? There's actually a lot of differing opinions on whether we are able to assist the body's response to infections caused by pathogens like viruses and bacteria. But, science shows, there are four important building blocks for a healthy immune system:

  • Participate in sensible, sustainable exercise
  • Get enough sleep
  • Manage your stress levels by means of meditation, hobbies, spending time in nature, healthy socialising, a good life/work balance, journaling, therapy, coaching etc.
  • Eat a balanced and healthy diet

Many negative responses to the question on if it is in fact possible to improve the immune system; argue that we get all the nutrients and trace elements that the immune system needs, from our diets. The question remains, how many of us, actually manage to consistently maintain a healthy diet? The answer is obvious... almost none! Then there's the concern about whether the foods we consume are of sufficient quality to provide for our nutritional needs?

Truth is: we can't really know. And, with monoculture crop farming, insecticide, and hormone usage, destroying the nutritional value of our foodstuff, it's best to use a trusted supplement to be 100% sure we're getting all the nutrients our bodies need.
