Nuts and seeds

Nuts and seeds can be a great snack and a healthy habit to help improve your immune system. Both can add significant amounts of essential nutrients to your healthy diet. For example, almonds are rich in vitamin E and B vitamins and have prebiotic properties that help increase beneficial immunity-boosting microbes. Walnuts have anti-inflammatory properties thanks to omega-3 fats content and can help improve your immunity with vitamin B65,6. Sunflower and pumpkin seeds deliver Vitamin E, B vitamins, and important minerals like copper, iron, magnesium, and zinc.

Meat and seafood

Including meat and fish in your diet can give your immune system a boost. Meat is not only a rich source of energy but also provides your body with iron, zinc, copper, and vitamin B6. All of these are important nutrients that play prominent roles in supporting healthy immune function. Various types of seafood also contain B vitamins and can help your body regulate inflammation while also promoting red and white blood cell development5,6.

Bread and cereals

Wholegrain bread and cereals like oats, wheat, and brown rice are good sources of B vitamins on our list. They help give your immune system a boost and they provide your body with fibre, a nutrient that plays a role in modulating immune system functions. If you are overweight, fibre can also help lower your BMI, a factor linked with improved immunity7.
