Top 10 Immune System Boosters

Updated on March 12, 2011

It is always a good idea to take a supplement that will boost the immune response. A healthy immune system can take a person a long way down the road to good health. The first place to start looking for immune system boosters is the super market. Yogurt contains natural probiotics, which are beneficial forms of bacteria that can combat other types of germs known to cause infection. Probiotics help relieve digestive irregularity and boost the immune system. Probiotics are considered to be a “super-food” by many, and are well-known disease-fighters. Probiotics can also be found in acidophilus supplements, which are available in several different strengths.

There are other supplements out there that can help boost the immune system as well. For example, in the Philippines, there are herbal healing properties in the country’s national tree. This tree is known as Narra, and it is known for boosting the immune system. Narra has concentrated levels of anti-oxidants in it. Because of this, people have been using it as medicine for many centuries. Narra should not be used in place of traditional medicine, but taken as a supplement combined with proper diet, exercise, lots of drinking water, and proper rest. Research also shows that Narra can ease inflammation, get rid of urinary stones, and fight viral infections.

One of the easiest ways to boost the immune system is through proper nutrition. That does not include soda and a big bag on potato chips.  People in America often  have very low immune system response simply because of the use of pharmaceutical drugs and lack of proper diet. There are many therapies out there that can and will boost your immune system such as colloidal silver, oxygen therapies, electro medicine, and nutritional therapies. There are also many herbs that are especially effective in boosting the immune system. Flax seed oil, vitamin C, and cayenne pepper found in foods are natural immune system boosters that most people don’t even have to think about.

When a person is under a lot of stress, they are also more likely to become sick. Stress can have a profound impact on the immune system, so routine exercise and stress management techniques can also boost the immune system. Methods such as meditation and yoga are increasing in popularity and have been proven to have a direct effect on an individual’s immune response. Boosting your immune system is not only good for you, it is a step in the right direction for a healthier lifestyle
