A healthy immune system protects you by creating a barrier that stops those invaders. If one happens to slip by, it starts to produce white blood cells and other chemicals that attack and destroy these foreign substances. If your immune system can not get rid of the invader before it starts to reproduce, it simply revs up, even more, to destroy the invaders as they multiply.

Our immune system does a remarkable job to defend us against this disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes it fails, a germ invades and makes us sick.

Due to the course of ageing, our immune response capability also becomes reduced, which contributes to more infections and diseases. While some people age healthily compared with younger people, the elderly are more likely to contract infectious diseases.

Here, there is no quick fix when it comes to suddenly boost your immunity and there is no supplement nor a portion of food that will suddenly strengthen it. The single best way to keep yourself, and your immune system, healthy is to choose a healthy lifestyle. What this does is offers support to your immune system and allows it to get on with its job of keeping invaders out, instead of trying to sort out other health problems.

If you suspect your diet is not providing you with all your micronutrient needs, taking a daily dosage of dry fruits and Indian spices may bring other health benefits, beyond any possibly beneficial effects on your immune system.

Dry fruits and various spices having nutritional compounds like vitamin C, antioxidants and zinc do work with your immune system and help it function more effectively. Reduce your intake of highly processed and sugary foods, and increase your intake of fresh, healthy fruits and dry fruits.

A variety of mixtures and decoctions are prevalent in India to strengthen the immune system. Such drinks can be made by mixing many easily obtained herbs which can increase our immune system tremendously.
