Try one of these 55 immune boosting recipes.  They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to support your immune system.

This year was brutal for the flu and sickness.  This was the first year my kids have ever had the flu.  We think my oldest picked it up at college and brought it home, and it passed through two more kids and my husband.

I was just sitting there with my elderberry syrup.  No one wanted to listen to Mom though.



I put together a collect of 55 immune boosting food recipes.  These recipes are all made with whole ingredients and no sugar.

They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to nourish your body.  Many also have antioxidants.

Will these stop you from getting sick?  Probably not.  They will, however, give your immune system a little boost so it can defend your body against anything that comes its way.

Immune Boosting Recipes

These immunity boosting recipes will help you fill your body with antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients.  If you don't have all of the ingredients to make them, I admittedly don't, don't worry.  You can still order on Amazon and get things delivered.

Personally, I like Nature's Way Elderberry Syrup and Umcka Elderberry Intensive Cold Plus Flu Syrup.  My kids use the Nature's Way Elderberry Gummies.
