3 immunity-boosting ingredients (that also make a delicious tea)

Immunity Tea Ingredients

 

Even in the pre-pandemic days (remember those?) maintaining a healthy, well functioning immune system was important. Not just for warding off colds & flu’s, but for protecting your body from harmful substances, germs and cell changes that can make you unwell.

As long as your immune system is ticking away smoothly, you don’t even notice it’s there. But if it’s up against particularly aggressive bacteria or virus, or isn’t functioning as well as it could be, our bodies will let us know about it through various signs and symptoms. 

While we might think supporting our immune system is complicated, simply adding a few immune-boosting ingredients to our diets can help to keep our defences strong. Here are 3 immunity-boosting ingredients that help to keep your immune system firing, all of which you can find in our Immunity Avocado Leaf Tea.

 

 

1. Bacon Avocado Leaf

Naturally high in protein, fibre, minerals, and antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties, avocado leaves are your one-stop-shop for whole-body health.

Bacon Avocado Leaves are high in Quercetin, a natural plant flavonoid found in a variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains. This potent natural antioxidant works to support our overall health and wellbeing, from heart health to immunity, and bone health to anti-inflammation.

While the dietary fibre in Bacon avocado leaves help aid digestion and support your gut and metabolic health, the flavonoids and high levels of quercetin work to flush out toxins and harmful free radicals. This can help reduce inflammation in the body that can lead to more serious illness over time, such as heart disease and certain types of cancer.

 

 

2. Tulsi

Also known as holy basil, Tulsi is an adaptogen that’s been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. Adaptogen is the name given to a group of herbs that help to build resilience and ‘adapt’ the body’s response to stress and fatigue.

As a natural immunity enhancer, tulsi is known for its ability to help ward off respiratory illnesses, like colds, bronchitis and asthma. The powerful herb also contains anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that work to reduce tension in the chest, and in turn, ease coughs and soothe sore throats while helping your body expel phlegm. It’s seriously hard-working.

 

 

3. Cinnamon

An immune-boosting superstar, cinnamon is packed with antioxidants and antibacterial compounds that help fight off infections, viruses and drug-resistant fungi.

Cinnamon also disrupts a nasty type of bacteria called a biofilm, which coats medical devices and wreaks havoc on hospital-acquired infections. 

If that wasn’t enough, thanks to it’s powerful anti-inflammatory compounds, cinnamon can also help to reduce PMS symptoms such as menstrual cramps and nausea too.
