Are you doing everything you can to stay healthy? As you know, having a strong immune system is crucial for good health. Here are 7 immune boosters to help you keep your immune system in tip-top shape.

7 Immune Boosters

1. Garlic

Garlic has been used around the world for centuries because of its incredible healing powers and ability to fight illness and disease.

Garlic is one of the most tasty seasonings that people use in cooking. Garlic has been long used in traditional medicine with protective and curative purposes. At present, the trend toward the use of natural remedies with fewer side effects has given rise to garlic consumption as an alternative therapy for diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and microbial infections.(1)

Plants of the genus Allium, such as garlic, are known for their production of organosulfur compounds that exhibit a broad spectrum of beneficial effects against microbial infections as well as cardioprotective, anticancerigenic, and anti-inflammatory activity. Garlic appears to enhance the functioning of the immune system by stimulating certain cell types, such as macrophages, lymphocytes, natural killer cells, dendritic cells, and eosinophils. (1)

2. Allibiotic

By providing immune boosting herbs and prebiotics, Allibiotic is scientifically designed to help support healthy seasonal and year-round immune function. Additionally, because Allibiotic contains a non-digestible soluble fiber, it helps in supporting healthy bacteria in the gut, promoting gastrointestinal health so that you and your family can lead the happiest and healthiest lives possible.

Allibiotic:

  • Contains immune-boosting herbs Olive Leaf Extract, Elderberry and Oregano
  • Clinically tested to boost immune system function
  • Promotes gastrointestinal health and overall wellness
  • Supports healthy intestinal flora

Elderberries have been used traditionally against the common cold and flu. Elderberry has gained popularity in research and the wider community due to its reported antioxidant, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating, as well as antidepressant properties. (2)

Elderberries also contain a variety of nutrients ranging from various vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B9, C and E, trace elements and minerals, and phytochemicals such as carotenoids, phytosterols and polyphenols. These make elderberries a likely candidate for beneficial nutritional and/or medical supplementation not only for respiratory, but also for cardiovascular and mental health. (2) 

Research shows that elderberry extract seems to offer an efficient, safe and cost-effective treatment for influenza. (3)

Olive tree leaves have been used in the Mediterranean area as traditional medicine because of their healthy effects. Research  supports the cardioprotective, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities exerted by olive leaf extract. (4)

Research indicate that dietary intake of oregano and sage improved innate immune system functions. (5)

3. Curcumin

Curcumin has been used extensively in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries in India and South Asia, as it is nontoxic and has several beneficial properties like anti-oxidant, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic activity. Curcumin, known for its therapeutic effects, especially in cancer, is also recognized as a potent modulator of the immune system. Curcumin has been shown to exert immunomodulatory effects on several cells and organs of the immune system. (6)

4. Cat’s Claw

Cat's Claw, also known as the "life-giving vine of Peru," “saventaro,” or “uña de gato,” is a thick woody vine indigenous to the Amazon rain forest and other tropical areas of South and Central America.

Cat’s claw gets its name because its thorns resemble a cat’s claws. Using cat’s claw for health dates back to the Inca civilization. Its historical uses have included contraception, inflammation, cancer, and viral infections, and to stimulate the immune system. (7)
