During the fall it is important to boost our immune systems. With the changing weather, kids back to school, spending more time indoors ect, we are more susceptible to catch colds and flu.
To boost your immune system this autumn try dabbling with herbal infusions and tinctures. Some of my favorite immune enhancers this time of year are astragalus, echinacea, and cordyceps.
Some of my favorite herbs and spices to cook with in the fall are Garlic and ginger that can easily be added to many recipes, especially soups and stews.
Favorite foods that can also help boost your immune system are citrus fruits, broccoli, spinach, red bell peppers, shiitake mushrooms. These are high in Vitamin C and other important vitamins and minerals that are essential to our immune systems.
Drink Green tea! Green tea has many health benefits above and beyond helping the immune system. So instead of grabbing that second cup of coffee , reach for the green tea.
