Four Immunity Building Recipes to Boost Your Wellness

Immunity Builder

Your immune system is your body’s army as well as the police force. On one hand, it works to defend against disease-causing external invaders like viruses and bacteria. On the other, it also ensures your own healthy cells and tissues remain unattacked. We can compare these two attributes to everyday ailments. The first would be flu and colds caused by infecting viruses and bacteria. The second would be allergies caused by your own tissues reacting to allergens that crop up during season changes. Healthy immunity is able to minimize both infections and allergies. Either way, a healthy and balanced immune system is integral to your wellness. 

While the immune system and the immune function are complex mechanisms, there are simple recipes you can rustle and brew up in your kitchen to help strengthen your immune system.
