A healthy immune system is dependent on several factors, including genetics and lifestyle choices. There is no quick fix to boosting immune function, it’s something that requires long-term commitment. 

A diet with the healthy foods incorporated can help strengthen your immune system and make you feel your best every day. There are several beneficial herbs that are shown to regulate immune cells and help your body defend against threats. Here are some of the top ones to take regularly! 

The 5 Best Herbs for Immunity

1. Ginger 

Ginger has long been considered a medicinal herb because of its powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties. The anti-inflammatory effect of ginger is also shown to improve gut health, which is a big factor in having a healthy immune system. 

Research has shown that ginger induces a strong immune response.* You can eat it raw or use in a powder form to make a Ginger Lemon Immunity Shot. When on the go you can enjoy FeelGood Superfoods® Extra Strength Ginger Capsules that contain no additives or fillers. 

2. Turmeric 

Turmeric is an herb that naturally contains curcumin, a phytochemical agent that activates your body’s natural immune response*. FeelGood Superfoods® Turmeric Curcumin Capsules and FeelGood Organic Superfoods® Fortified Turmeric Powder make it easy to add this powerful antioxidant to your lifestyle. 

The great thing about turmeric is how delicious it tastes! Try making some unique recipes like the Turmeric Scrambled Eggs or a Pumpkin Tea Latte to incorporate this super spice. 

 3. Elderberry 

Elderberry has been considered the go-to remedy for the flu or cold for centuries. It’s packed with antioxidants that can help boost the immune system.* If you start coming down with a cold, elderberry is believed to help reduce symptoms*. Want to try it out yourself? FeelGood Organics®’s Elderberry Powder can be used to make immunity boosting Elderberry Shots that you can enjoy throughout the week.

4. Ashwagandha 

Ashwagandha is one of the most popular herbs in Ayurveda. Its antioxidant properties can repair cell damage and aid the body in creating antibodies. It is also believed to reduce stress levels, increase energy levels and improve concentration.* 

To include this essential herb into your diet, enjoy a cup of Moon Milk before bed or make Ashwagandha Chocolate Chip Muffins.

5.  Neem 

Neem is a natural herb that is derived from trees grown in Africa and India, known as Indian Lilac. Neem is most notably used in extract form coming from the seeds of the tree. Neem has many traditional uses and offers a wide range of benefits for your immune system such as antifungal properties and antibacterial support.*
