This week let’s look at 6 of my top picks when it comes to foods, herbals and vitamins to give you a real boost in immunity, health and wellbeing. Across the 6 mentioned below, each work in their own way to assist the body in improving immunity, energy levels, reduce stress levels, reduce muscle pain and to help brain function.
As a strong antifungal, garlic is rich in properties that can combat health issues such as an overgrowth of yeast in the gut, flu and cold symptoms and high blood pressure. Garlic is a wonderful natural medicine that can significantly boost the body’s immune system and improve overall health. If you are suffering from an overgrowth of candida for example, you can assist the body’s ability to destroy this fungus by adding 1 or 2 cloves of garlic to your current diet. You can also supplement with antifungal herbs such as our Candida Herb Extract Drops.
B vitamins like thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2) and niacin (vitamin B3) all help to keep mood stable. You can find these vitamins in rich, dark leafy green vegetables such as kale and spinach.
The perfect supplement to have before bed, magnesium helps support the body’s central nervous system and acts as a muscle relaxant. Magnesium can also reduce cramps in the body and is especially useful for athletes or anybody doing a lot of exercise.
Adding ginger into your diet will help calm any inflamed gut. Not only does ginger make a beautiful addition to a vegetable stirfry or marinated fish dinner but it can calm uneasy stomachs. Consumed fresh, dried or powdered, ginger is a wonderful addition to any gut healing regime.
Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory chemical found in turmeric. This potent, bright yellow curcuminoid can reduce inflammation and encourages detoxification in the body. A perfect choice for gut repair.
L-Glutamine powder has no fillers and is naturally fermented, and most importantly 100% pure pharmaceutical grade fine-powdered amino acid. It is suitable for vegans, Non-GM, Gluten free, No artificial additives and free from colours, flavours & preservatives. L glutamine organic powder is an essential amino acid supplement. Amino Acids are the building blocks of the body, because they are what make up protein itself. There are 9 essential amino acids and L Glutamine is one of them.
