Most of us know the importance of having a strong immune system. It’s foundational to all aspects of health as it curbs chronic inflammation, fights infection, and keeps us from getting sick.
That being said, it’s important to know how you can give your own immune system a boost. We’ve compiled a list of our top recommendations.
This golden root is one of the world’s most popular immune boosters. Studies show its properties for immunity are hard to beat.
Turmeric may help the body fight viruses like colds and flu, while keeping strep, staph, and even Candida at bay. It may even support the body while dealing with HIV or HPV. It also helps inflammation, such as in arthritis.
Garlic is just as healthy as a supplement as it is food. It’s come a long way as a folk remedy for coughs, colds, and flu.
Studies today support its use for protecting the body from inflammation, strengthening the immune system, and even combating bacteria, fungi, viruses, and other pathogens that could harm us.
That’s why we’ve included it in our Immune Daily formula.
You might not find reishi mushroom in your kitchen pantry, like turmeric or garlic. But that doesn’t make it any less a powerful immune healer.
You’ve probably had olive oil. But have you ever tried olive leaf?
This overlooked part of the olive tree is incredibly antioxidant-rich. And this means it has benefits for the immune system: more specifically, it is known to help balance immune inflammation, and helps support immune-related inflammatory illnesses (like autoimmune conditions).
Psssst: olive leaf is also in our Immune Daily.
Boosting immunity isn’t all about herbs and botanicals. If you want to support your immune system, it’s a good idea to support the gut, too.
Gut microbes can be the “gatekeepers” to the immune system in some ways. One of the best ways to do this: care for your gut through probiotics, according to studies. Prebiotics can be a great primer for both the gut and immunity, too — and we have unique formulas for each.

Immune health is nothing without the basic vitamins and minerals we need to be healthy.
In fact, many essential nutrients are antioxidants that play a role in naturally keeping our immune systems healthy. These include vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, and others.
Find them together in our Adult Multivitamin (a vegan formula made from 42 whole fruits, vegetables, and plant-based enzymes!).
Finally — getting proper sleep, eating well, exercising, and moderating sugar consumption can all contribute to a stronger immune system.
