In an urban envi­ron­ment, in con­di­tions of con­stant stress, man-made noise and high speeds, our body needs pro­tec­tion — a strong immune sys­tem. What foods should we use to strength­en it and cope with the attacks of virus­es and bac­te­ria? Among the pri­ma­ry nutri­ents that pro­vide an increase in immu­ni­ty, there are such vit­a­mins as A, C, D and B groups, as well as trace ele­ments sele­ni­um, iron, zinc and cop­per.

Bee Honey

Con­sum­ing qual­i­ty hon­ey dai­ly is a great way to boost your immune sys­tem. An impor­tant rule is to drink warm drinks, high tem­per­a­ture destroys the ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances in hon­ey.


Sea buck­thorn, blue­ber­ries, cur­rants, choke­ber­ries, cher­ries, grapes. These berries are a good source of antiox­i­dants, which the body needs to fight free rad­i­cals, a by-prod­uct of chem­i­cal reac­tions in the body’s cells that destroy cells.

green vegetables

Fresh greens, broc­coli, spinach, green peas con­tain iron, cal­ci­um, folic acid, vit­a­mins, antiox­i­dants and oth­er use­ful sub­stances. And by mak­ing a sal­ad of col­or­ful veg­eta­bles with veg­etable oil, you will get a whole mul­ti­vi­t­a­min com­plex!

Yerba mate

Mate is a ton­ic drink from a South Amer­i­can ever­green shrub, a tra­di­tion­al Argen­tine drink. Yer­ba mate per­fect­ly strength­ens the immune sys­tem due to the con­tent of more than 200 use­ful vit­a­mins and min­er­als. Mate has 3 times more antiox­i­dants than green tea! Mate can be drunk every day, it per­fect­ly invig­o­rates, restores strength and acti­vates brain activ­i­ty.

Dairy products

Kefir and yogurt con­tain­ing pro­bi­otics strength­en our immu­ni­ty, pre­vent­ing the devel­op­ment of path­o­gen­ic microor­gan­isms and help­ing our microflo­ra to pro­tect the intesti­nal mucosa.


This fer­ment­ed prod­uct con­tains a lot of vit­a­min C and, in addi­tion to strength­en­ing the immune sys­tem, improves meta­bol­ic process­es and low­ers cho­les­terol. Sauer­kraut is best eat­en with veg­etable oil.

Fish and seafood

Fish and seafood are rich in Omega‑3 polyun­sat­u­rat­ed fat­ty acids, vit­a­mins and ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances that have anti-inflam­ma­to­ry prop­er­ties and sup­port the body’s immune sys­tem.
