In summary – some areas where you can support your immune system are: diet (ie. focusing on nutrient dense ingredients), and eating more fruits and vegetables (and lowering consumption of processed and high sugar foods). These can be fresh, frozen or tinned (without added sugar). Lifestyle also helps your immune system such as getting plenty of sleep, rest and exercise too. It discusses:
