Support Your Immune System on A Plant-Based Diet
Plant-Based Immune Support Program with A 7-Day Meal Plan, Grocery List & Recipes
Cold and flu season got you down? We don’t blame you. This time of year can be stressful -- no one likes to get slammed with virus after virus. And if you have a weak immune system it can be especially scary as a common cold can quickly become a chronic and serious problem. The good news? It’s possible to boost your immune system by adding more of these plant-based foods to your plate.
A plant-based diet is all about celebrating and enjoying the foods that naturally fuel our bodies and are minimally processed. By increasing the intake of nourishing foods, you can improve your health, which is exactly what the plant-based diet is about.
Eating a low-fat, plant-based diet may help give the immune system a boost. The immune system relies on white blood cells that produce antibodies to combat bacteria, viruses, and other invaders. Vegetarians have been shown to have more effective white blood cells when compared to non-vegetarians, due to a high intake of vitamins and low intake of fat.
Eating a low-fat diet may also be protective. Studies have shown that limiting dietary fat helps strengthen immune defenses. Research also shows that oil may impair white blood cell function and that high-fat diets may alter the gut microbiota that aid in immunity.
Maintaining a healthy weight can also benefit the immune system. Obesity has been linked to increased risk for influenza and other infections such as pneumonia. Plant-based diets are effective for weight loss, because they are rich in fiber, which helps fill you up, without adding extra calories. Fiber can also lower BMI, which is linked to improved immunity. A plant-based diet has also been shown to reduce inflammatory biomarkers.
