Strengthen Yourself

Some people catch every virus and seem to move from one cold to the next. They are susceptible to infections because their endogenous defenses are weakened. To prevent major illnesses from developing, it is important to strengthen the immune system.

If you want to strengthen your immune system in the long term, you should think about your diet first and foremost. Studies show that vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene in particular, as well as the trace elements zinc and selenium and secondary plant compounds play a key role. These micronutrients activate the immune cells, stimulate the formation of antibodies and also influence the production of natural killer cells. In concrete terms, this means including more fresh fruit and vegetables (depending on the season), pulses (beans/lentils) and nuts in the diet, and seasoning with ginger, turmeric and chili, because the essential oils have an immune-stimulating and anti-inflammatory effect.
