How To Support Your Immunity Through Diet

Share This Post

One of the most foundational things you can do to improve your immune resilience is to eat a diet that supports healthy immunity.

  1. Avoid concentrated and processed sugars. Candy bars, desserts, fruit juices, sweetened coffee drinks, and anything else that has a high amount of concentrated sugar all need to be avoided to improve immune resilience.
  2. Eat foods high in antioxidants and flavonoids. Eat an abundant number of fruits and vegetables of many different colors. Their high content of antioxidants and flavonoids will support your immune function overall. NOTE: When it comes to fruits, don’t over do it. Stick to low-glycemic fruits to avoid spiking your blood sugar, which is inflammatory and can weaken immune resilience. 
  3. Improve your microbiome diversity. One way to improve your immune resilience is to have many different species of healthy bacteria in your gut. The way to do this is to eat many kinds of vegetables and fruits. Avoid eating the same ones over and over and seek out different kinds of produce you normally don’t eat. Rotate through different kinds of fruits and veggies regularly.
  4. Reduce your intake of foods that are generally inflammatory. Many common foods are quite inflammatory to the human body. This includes foods fried in vegetable iols, partially hydrogenated fats – which are in packaged and fast foods – and processed foods. These foods deplete your antioxidant reserves. Additionally, avoid starchy, high-carbohydrate, and flour-based foods that make you tired after you eat. This tiredness after meals is a sign you’ve had an insulin surge, which is very pro-inflammatory, depletes your body of antioxidants, and is harmful to your brain.
