When we talk about immunity, most people immediately think of dietary supplements, but sometimes we have much more effective weapons at home in the kitchen. What are they like?

Fermented vegetables

Our grandmothers no longer allowed pickled greens and pickled mixtures of vegetables, which they grew in their gardens in the summer and then stuffed into jars. On the one hand, they could only dream about some citrus fruits imported from the other side of the world, but they also knew that fermented vegetables are a great prevention of any cold or cold in general. Sauerkraut is a direct life-stimulator for our intestinal microflora, and we are not talking about the large amount of vitamin C it contains.

Sea buckthorn

If there is an autumn superfood in our meadows and groves, it is sea buckthorn. Orange berries contain a really huge amount of vitamin C, but not only that, you will also find antioxidants in them, i.e. substances that deal with free radicals in our body and thus prevent the development of unpleasant diseases. Sea buckthorn is also a storehouse of B vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, iron or zinc. If you don’t like the taste of sea buckthorn, try sea buckthorn juice or marmalade. Sea buckthorn syrups are also excellent.

Ginger

Ginger is such a little miracle for our health and has absolutely amazing healing powers. What can he handle? First of all, it supports the natural defenses of our body, it also acts as an antioxidant and is excellent for the treatment of respiratory diseases. And besides, it also regulates the amount of sugar in the blood, is a prevention of cardiovascular diseases, and if you have problems with digestion, it will be a great helper here as well. It supports digestion and this is one of the reasons why it is also used for nausea when traveling or during pregnancy. You must have heard of ginger lollipops. However, you should not use ginger for a long time, consult your doctor or pharmacist for long-term use.

Buckwheat

It might surprise you, but even buckwheat is a real treasure. In addition to strengthening immunity, it also benefits our heart and strengthens blood vessels, improves kidney function and aids proper digestion. You should also include it in your diet if you are trying to lose weight. In autumn, you will appreciate one more of its properties, and that is its ability to pleasantly warm us from the inside.

Cranberries

Cranberries are another treat that should not be missing from your pantry. They contain a high amount of vitamin C, but also B vitamins. You will find magnesium, potassium and iron in them. If you often suffer from inflammation of the bladder, urinary tract or simply from embarrassment, you should definitely always have this treasure at hand. It can easily deal with inflammation.

Soup is grunt

You surely still remember from your childhood that when you had a cold or sore throat, they covered you up to your chin with a duvet, made you hot tea and also broth. The broth is another one of the delicacies that our grandmothers won’t allow. In addition to warming up beautifully, it can also quickly get you back on your feet whenever you catch a cold.

What else can you try?

In order for our body to have enough strength for daily functioning and coping with stress, it also needs healthy fats. You can find them in nuts. And it doesn’t matter if you reach for hazelnut or walnut. Both contain omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, B, D, E, K and A. You will also find zinc, iron or calcium, magnesium in them. While you’re on the go, bring home some rosehips too, they’re literally renowned for their immune-boosting abilities.
