Apart From Taking a Vaccine, You Can Boost Your Immunity Like This

Apparently it’s a flu season and most people are getting it and the worries of getting infected with a virus are also on. But no need to worry too much if you take all preventive cautions seriously. Plus there are ways to seriously boost your immunity apart from having the vaccine. This is what you should do

Get lots of Vitamin C
This helps prevent the common cold. It acts as a powerful antioxidant and protects against damage induced by oxidative stress. For severe infections, including sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), high dose intravenous vitamin C treatment has been shown to significantly improve symptoms in patients.

Add lots of Vitamin D
The Vitamin D supplements have a mild protective effect against respiratory tract infections. Most people are deficient in Vitamin-D, so it’s best to consult with a doctor about taking a Vitamin D supplement to boost immune response.

Get the Zinc as well.

It is a vital component to WBC (white blood corpuscles) which fights infections. Zinc deficiency often makes one more susceptible to flu, cold and other viral infections. It is advisable to take a zinc supplement, especially for older people.


Elderberries are full of nutrients including minerals like phosphorus, potassium, iron, copper and vitamins, such as vitamin A, B, and C, proteins and dietary fibre. Elderberries have antibacterial and antiviral qualities which help fight cold and influenza.

Turmeric and Garlic

The bright yellow spice, Turmeric, contains a compound called curcumin, which boosts the immune function. Garlic has powerful anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties which enhances body immunity.

In conclusion if you get a cold, you need to see a doctor and you should minimise all stressful activities by having enough sleep and giving your body a lot of fluids.
