The Best Foods and Teas For The Immune System

Nourishing your body with healthy foods will help your body be stronger to fight off any "bugs" that you might encounter this cold and flu season. Here are the powerful ingredients we picked for this immune-promoting punch.


Packed with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant rich compounds, ginger helps boost your immune system and promote healthier resistance to all the colds and flus going around.

If you do happen to fall down with a sickness, ginger might even help you feel better. Ginger has been used for centuries in treating nausea and pain, so drinking some ginger tea might help soothe your tummy, throat and muscle aches.


Citrus fruits, like oranges, are high in vitamin c, which helps boost immune function on the cellular level. As a result, it can help reduce oxidative stress and support your white blood cells in functioning more effectively.

If you don't have oranges for this recipe, feel free to substitute them with another citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit, clementine, etc.)

Kiwi supports your immune defense, like oranges, because it is also very high in vitamin c. Kiwi contains roughly 230% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin C, so you are getting a massive immunity-bang with each sip! It also is an excellent source of iron, fiber, and antioxidants, which will support your body's overall functioning, making it easier to fight off sickness!


Berries, including blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, elderberries, etc., contain antioxidant properties that can help boost the immune system. Researchers found that people who ate foods rich in flavonoids were less likely to catch a respiratory tract infection or common cold than those who did not.

Add whichever berries you prefer to this punch since they are all jam-packed with awesomeness.

Green Tea

Will we ever get to the end of the list regarding the benefits of green tea? Honestly, probably not! Green Tea is packed with antioxidants, like flavonoids and EGCG, that have been shown to help various sicknesses and diseases, including your common cold. It is also a great source of the amino acid L-theanine, which can help fight off germs. Green Tea can help enhance immune function and prevent you from getting sick, which is why we added it to the ultimate immunity punch.
