Eating a diverse diet, rich in colourful vegetables and fruits, will ensure that you are getting a sufficient range of antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the structural elements of the immune system and the gut itself:
Here are examples of how specific foods (amongst others) that might affect the immune system:
We’ve known for a long time that drinking alcohol and eating a diet high in sugar can weaken the actions of the immune system, but we didn’t know how this might occur. Recent research has shown that alcohol is toxic to some of our immune system cells (dendritic cells), which are critical to activating the adaptive immune system via the T cells by recognising specific antigens. A diet high in sugar, as shown in experiments using fruit files, abnormally activated the innate immune system causing inflammation. If you are looking to enhance the activity of the immune system (and overall health), reducing both alcohol and added sugar intake in food could help.
As we are not always able to get all the micronutrients and antioxidants we need from our diet, using a supplement such as Tonic Health with the optimal levels of micronutrients can help support a healthy immune system.
