Immune-Boosting Foods

The website WebMD is a bit too commercial for me to consider as my first-line source, but they often have informative articles that at least provide a good starting point for research and discussion. I wanted to share their recent slideshow on immune-boosting foods. It’s a quick review of 15 foods that have particularly good effects on your immune system, thus providing a good level of general protection. It’s an easy read for everyone and at least gets us all to think about our diets and what we can do to improve them. By the way, the photo on the right shows elderberry, rich in antioxidants and possibly effective against the flu.

I think immune system health is a particularly pressing issue in Beijing, as we daily face strong environmental toxins and pollutants which do indeed lower our immune systems. So, it’s always a good idea to be as healthy as possible regarding our diets.

One thought on “Immune-Boosting Foods”

  1. In the absence of elderberry extract in Beijing, Blueberries are a pretty good second!

    They don't include Guo ji Berries (Goji in the West), but they are easily available here and pretty darn good too.
