Is soup good for your immune system?

There’s a reason we reach for a bowl of warming, immune boosting soup in the cold and flu season. It’s one of the first things that comes to mind when you’re not feeling great or you want to support your immunity, plus, it’s quick, simple and affordable to make. An ideal base for an immune booster soup is nutrient-dense seasonal vegetables, which are packed with antioxidants and are well known for their antiviral and antibacterial properties. For those that eat meat, bone broth is another key soup ingredient. It’s absolutely packed with vitamins and minerals, and can support gut health which is closely linked to our immune system.

 

What are immune boosting foods?

Immune boosting foods like our immune booster soup generally contain vital vitamins, antioxidants, minerals or antimicrobials - all of which support your immune system. Lots of plant-based food contains Vitamin A, C and E and minerals such as zinc which are all great for supporting immunity. Some of our favourite immune-boosting plant-based foods are garlic, ginger, leafy greens, whole grains, nuts, colourful veg like capsicums and many fruits like lemons and kiwifruits. Meats like chicken contain B vitamins - these are also crucial for your immune system.

 

What are the benefits of a strong immune system?

Our immune system acts as our body’s first line of defence against disease-causing germs such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. A strong immune system plays an essential role in the foundation of our physical health, mental health and overall wellbeing.

 

How can I boost my immune system naturally?

There are lots of ways to naturally support your immune system. Eating the rainbow is one of the best first steps you can take - fueling your body with a wide variety of nutritious vegetables and superfoods that are packed with key vitamins, minerals and nutrients is a great way to support your health. This is why immune booster soups can be such an effective way to support your immune system - you get all the goodness in every spoonful!

Other ways you can support your immune system include: drinking moderately, exercising regularly, making sure you get enough quality sleep, getting enough natural sunshine (safely of course!) and practising good hygiene.
