How to boost your immune system right now

Hey there immune system, I would just like to start by saying I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I have neglected you. I am sorry that I have taken you for granted and I’m sorry that I am only just listening now.

It’s safe to say that lot of us are feeling the feels at the moment and we are coming to the harsh reality on how important our health is. Without it, what do we have? Not much! Our health is what protects us mentally and physically and whether you are feeling the moody blues, increased stress and anxiety or the nasty sniffles at the moment, please know that there are things that you can do for your body to help immensely.

And you guessed it, it all starts with what we put inside of it! Sounds simple right? So why as humans do we know this information but continue to fuel our bodes with processed foods. sugars, too much alcohol and saturated fats and then wonder why our bodies shut down and basically crack the shits with us!

The amazing thing about the immune system is that it’s constantly adapting and learning so that the body can fight against bacteria or viruses that change over time. 

What’s we need to reinforce now is to try not to let or stress levels peak. Raised stress levels actually harm your immune system and make you more vulnerable to infections. 

It’s concerning and very sad that a worldwide health pandemic is what finally gets us to sit up and take notice. Or is it? Maybe this is just what that doctor ordered for us to actually take notice of how we are treating ourselves inside and out? Mentally and physically, As well as how we are treating this beautiful, amazing planet that we are all so blessed to live on.

Let’s take a quick look at some immune boosting foods that you can start to add to your diet RIGHT NOW! And incorporate into your health care regime moving forward from this moment on. Because now is the time more than ever to take action, to be the healthiest and happiest versions of ourselves that we can possibly be.

We get one shot at this life, yes it’s a little cliche but the proof is literally in the pudding!


Alarmingly, the average person only consumes half of their recommended five servings of vegetables each day and if that’s not difficult enough, due to increased pollution and the world we live in today, the foods grown in our soils just aren’t getting all the nutrients that they once had say 50 years ago. So it’s a great, if not a genius idea, to get some additional help from a product that can give your body all of the green goodness that it needs and deserves.

WE RECOMMEND: Organic Greens by Isagenix. Containing precious phytonutrients from plants that are not typically found in supplemental vitamins and minerals. That means your daily vitamin regimen isn’t always enough. These superfood elements are essential to our health and wellness, and Greens makes it convenient to get these nutrients into our body every single day.


We have all heard as we have grown up how important it is to boost your vitamin C intake during the cold and flu season. And there is a very logical explanation for that! Firstly, our bodies can not naturally produce vitamin C which is a bit of a bummer when it comes to keeping our immune systems healthy and our cold and flu guarding soldiers up and at em ready for action!

Our bodies use vitamin C to synthesise collagen, a protein that makes up connective tissue and aids in wound healing and rebuild a healthy body. Studies show that the use of vitamin C can in fact reduce the duration and symptoms of colds and respiratory tract infections.

Vitamin C, also being the powerful antioxidant that it is. can help to strengthen the bodies natural defences. Antioxidants are molecules that boost the immune system. They do so by protecting cells from harmful molecules called free radicals.

Now while it’s commonly advised to get your vitamin C intake from fresh foods, fruits and vegetables, it’s not always possible so many people turn to supplements to meet their needs.

WE RECOMMEND: Amazonia Raw Vitamin C Complex. A rich source of vitamin C, which also supports collagen production to simultaneously nourish the immune and digestive systems. The highly bioavailable vitamin C allows for easy absorption – which each serve containing 400mg or the equivalent of 8 oranges.


Protein is commonly known for recovery, sports performance, body shaping and weight loss. But did you know that one of protein’s most important roles is to support immune function? Studies show that a deficiency in protein can significantly impair immune function and increase our sensitivity to infections and illness.

Protein is made up of amino acids that are essential nutrients that we simply just can’t live without. The main function for protein is to build and repair as well as sustain muscle. Unfortunately our bodies are unable to maintain a decent store of protein like we do with fats and carbohydrates. A top quality smoothie or shake is really a super convenient way of making sure that our bodies are getting our daily protein intake to assist in recovery and support a healthy immune system.

WE RECOMMEND: IsaLean Shake. Containing exclusively sourced Myo-IsaLean Complex, a blend of high-quality whey and milk protein from cows not treated with hormones or routine antibiotics.
A nutritionally complete meal replacement is high in protein, contains essential vitamins and minerals and it tastes pretty amazing too!


People have used black seed oil for its therapeutic benefits for thousands of years. Black seed oil is extracted from the seeds of Nigella Sativa, a plant native to southwest Asia. The black seeds are slightly bitter and sometimes used as a flavouring or spice in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. The amber-hued oil is also used in cooking and is said to offer a variety of health benefits

Black seed oil has been shown to have incredible antioxidant properties that can help relieve inflammation inside the body and on the skin. Containing over 100 active chemical compounds that may increase health. Which is exciting news! One of these compounds in particular being Crystalline nigellone which is well researched for increasing immune function, especially respiratory health.

A lot more research and case studies need to be done with this miracle plant, but as it stands, black seed oil is an amazing addition to your health care regime and should 100% be looked at for immunity.

WE RECOMMEND: The black seed co range. Ranging from double-strength black seed oil, capsules and skincare.
