Natural Solutions For Boosting Immunity


Here are five of our top herbs for boosting the immune system




Enjoy our audio article here:




Astralagus Root


Astragalus, a well-known herb in Chinese medicine, possesses anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Research studies reveal that the roots of the Astragalus can enhance the body's resistance to infection.


Research has suggested that astragalus may be an effective supplement for restoring the health of individuals who have weakened immune systems. Studies have revealed that supplementing with astragalus may reduce a patient's recovery time.



Ginseng


Ginseng is a helpful immune booster that facilitates the healthy functioning and effect of all cells in the body. Ginseng can help to boost endurance and strength, as well as mental capacity and alertness,


Ginseng is good for the heart and the management of diabetes. In addition, it has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that can help with a number of inflammatory conditions.


Ginseng is not to be used in healthy individuals for an extended length of time as there can be unwanted side effects. We recommend seeking professional advice on the usage of ginseng for the best efficacy.

Angelica Root


Angelica is a plant native to Russia and Scandinavian countries. The root, seed, and fruit can be used to make different medicines. The dried root of the Angelica plant is used in Chinese medicine to enrich the blood, promote blood circulation and improve the immune system as well as treat respiratory tract conditions and cold-related problems.




Ginger


Ginger contains many powerful anti-inflammatory compounds. It can help to support a healthy immune system due to its antioxidant properties. When you consume more foods containing ginger, it can decrease your chance of suffering from inflammation and boost your immune system. In addition, ginger also has powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties.


In research studies, ginger root has been shown to reduce inflammation in those who suffer from diseases such as osteoarthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma, and certain cancers (Study on Inflammatory Response, Study on Protective & therapeutic use, Study on rheumatoid arthritis, Study on anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects).




Honey


Honey is not a herb however we wanted to include it in this article because it is a natural remedy that you can easily attain to boost your immune system.


Throughout history, natural, raw honey has been regarded as a type of folk medicine. Recently, it has been drawing attention as an effective natural therapy because of its ability to suppress acute inflammation by enhancing our body's immune response.


Beware that most grocery store honey is pasteurized. The heat kills undesirable yeast, enhances the flavor, eliminates any crystallization, and increases the shelf life. However, many of the beneficial nutrients are destroyed during the process as well.


If you’re interested in getting raw honey, it's important to do your own research and attain it from a trusted source.
