In a world where germs are everywhere, it’s important to have a strong immune system. Luckily, there are many ways to keep your immune system in tip-top shape.

Get Your Daily Nutrients

Did you know that a lack of nutrients can cause your immune system to weaken? Proper nutrition must be supplied to your body to ensure that it’ll remain healthy.

The most important one is vitamin C, which boosts the production of white blood cells. In fact, studies show that people who drink 8 – 8oz glasses of fresh orange juice a day for two weeks have an increased production of white milk cells by as much as 20%.

Don’t Forget Zinc

Another nutrient that’s important is zinc, which helps fight against bacteria and viruses. This nutrient has been found to slash the risk of colds and other illnesses in people with a zinc deficiency by more than 28%.
