There are plant products that contain significant amounts of valuable substances that strengthen the immune system and help you train your defense mechanism, preparing it to fight acute infections and chronic diseases. There is food that in this respect is many times higher than other available ingredients. Among them, the most important place is occupied by: garlic, onions, mushrooms, pomegranates, berries, peppers, millet, kiwi, seeds, and brassica vegetables. We often forget about many of them when preparing daily meals.

Brassica vegetables

Green vegetables (cabbage, broccoli) are a rich source of isothiocyanates, which stimulate the immune system. Studies have shown that thanks to them, the body can cope better with infections in its early stages.

Compounds contained in brassica vegetables protect against viral and bacterial infections. They work well in strengthening the body, especially in people who, as a result of taking a large amount of antibiotics, the body is susceptible to further diseases. These ingredients allow you to better manage infections and various types of inflammation.

Cabbage can be served both fresh and pickled. Broccoli tastes hot as an addition to dinner and cold in salads.

Flax Seeds

It is also worth strengthening the immunity by reaching for flax seeds. They are a valuable source of omega-3 fatty acids and lignans, which strengthens the immune system.

Lignans, also by binding to estrogen receptors, reduce the risk of cancer. In addition, they have a strong antioxidant effect.

Pomegranate juice

This is a more "exotic proposition" that finds many supporters. Pomegranates are small fruits that are a valuable source of antioxidants that have anti-cancer effects and have an excellent effect on the appearance, slowing the skin's aging process. Pomegranate strengthens the body's response, preparing the immune system to effectively fight the threat.

Research carried out in the last decade confirms the positive role of pomegranate in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancer prevention, bacterial infections and skin damage by UV rays.


Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, blueberries have similar benefits to those described above. In Poland it is most often used to support the treatment of colds and flu. In addition to the fact that berries are an excellent source of antioxidants, recent research shows that we also owe them something else: virus blocking. Thanks to them, it is easier to cope with the infection ... and for this a favorable "side effect" is obtained: the berries have a positive effect on the brain.


Older babies can eat peppers. Available in many colors, the vegetable is a valuable source of vitamin C, which it contains more than lemons.

Medium pepper (the size of an apple) allows you to meet the daily requirement of vitamin C. In addition, it retains almost all the nutritional value even after cooking or frying.


Kiwi is an inconspicuous fruit the size of a chicken egg.

One kiwi satisfies the daily requirement of vitamin C. Even half a year after breaking, the fruit still contains 90% of vitamin C compared to freshly picked kiwi.
