A healthy body begins with a healthy immune system. It maintains homoeostasis by defending against viruses and bacteria, which can cause inflammation, illness and disease.
When I’m a little stressed and run down, my immune system gets a little hammered, so I make a conscious effort to avoid getting sick with immune boosting foods and nutrients I need to stay fit, stay healthy and keep my immune system strong.
WHY YOU NEED PROTEIN FOR IMMUNE HEALTH
To have a strong immune system your body needs a daily supply of quality protein. Research studies have shown that deficiency of high-quality protein can result in depletion of immune cells, inability of the body to make antibodies, and other immune-related problems. Even marginally low protein intake may impair immune function. One small study in women showed following a low-protein diet for nine weeks significantly reduced their immune response.
Healthy Chef Protein is high in the essential amino acid cystine, which is essential in the production of the body’s master antioxidant glutathione. Studies show that glutathione is vital for boosting immune function, eliminating free radicals from our body and protecting us from everyday environmental pollutants.

Natural Immune Support is made from whole foods, rich in vitamin C + D and high in antioxidants such as turmeric and ginger to boost your immune system. Vitamin C, acts like your personal bodyguard, helping to protect cells and assist in healing. Studies show the use of vitamin C can reduce the duration and symptoms of colds.

Natural Immune Support is like my rescue remedy that I mix with water or throw into a smoothie or cold pressed juice. Just one teaspoon of Natural Immune Support contains 10 x the RDI of pure Vitamin C and the full-recommended daily intake of vitamin D that helps boost immune function and immune health.
I believe that food is most powerful when it is close to its original state and has the properties to heal and nourish. That is why I regularly make sure that I’m getting a daily dose of fresh vegetables, fruits and quality protein so that my immune system stays strong.
The addition of warming immune boosting soups or antioxidant rich immune boosting smoothies helps to nourish and restore my digestive system and makes me feel healthy and strong.
As a general rule, by eating a rainbow of whole foods, such as fresh vitamin C + D rich fruits and vegetables every day, and having enough protein to support to protect your body against colds and flu.
