Immunity Boosting Vitamins.
Vitamins themselves aren't a natural immunity booster, but you
can find vitamins with natural ingredients and you can look for
these vitamins to boost your health.

Let Food Be Thy Medicine!
Preventing cold and flu is about prevention. Most people know
about Vitamin C, the video below shares five lesser know foods
to keep your immune system strong:

  • Carotenoids: Carotenoids are a family of vitamins found in
    brightly colored vegtables, bell peppers, kale,  sweet
    potatoes, boost natural killer cells that emit toxins and
    destroy bad bacteria that make you sick. They also are great
    sources of vitamin C.

  • Probiotics:  Your bacteria influences your immune system
    and probiotics can help influence your immune system
    positively! Probiotics include, kefir, kimchi (fermented
    cabbage), miso paste, and tempe. Since 70-80% of your
    immune system lives in your gut, it's only natural that you  
    look to probiotics for boosting immunity.

  • Vitamin C. Vitamin C should be taken in divided doses
    throughout the day. When individual doses exceed 500 mg,
    more of the Vitamin is excreted in the urine and thus may be
    wasted. Vitamin C works by stimulating the immune system
    and protecting against damage from the free radicals
    released by the body in its fight against the infection.

  • Vitamin D. Identify the bad bacteria and viruses. It helps to
    boost the immune system before you get sick. Unfortunately,
    there aren't many food options with Vitamin D, but the two
    easy foods that come to mind are eggs and salmon. Think
    canned salmon, sardines and powdered eggs for your food
    storage. Supplementation is also a good option.

  • Zinc: Zinc influences your immune cell function. Asparagus,
    mushrooms, red meat,and spinach.
