Brewing Immunity Teas have been used for medicinal purposes in Eastern cultures for centuries. And a growing body of research suggests that regular tea consumption may indeed offer a range of health benefits, including fending off colds and flu. Teas made from the Camellia sinensis plant (such as black, green and oolong) are rich in polyphenolic compounds that reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the body and help regulate the immune system. Combine tea with other plants that have shown promise for immunity—such as elderberries, hibiscus and rose hips, which are all high in polyphenolic compounds and other antioxidants—and you just might have the recipe for a soothing, health-bettering brew. —Jen Laskey Healing Healthfully The immune system keeps us well, fights viruses and staves off disease.

eating well is the best (immune) defense

For most of us, our immune system has always been something like the roof over our head: we don’t think much about it unless something goes wrong. Yet it has always been there, quietly and (mostly) invisibly protecting us against disease, infection and invaders, from pathogens to parasites—as well as helping us recover from injuries. But recently the COVID-19 pandemic shook up that thinking, just as it shifted almost everything else in our world. As the toll of the virus mounted, maintaining a healthy immune system moved to the top of everyone’s mind. All along, to no one’s surprise, the food and supplement industry has responded predictably, rushing to deliver “immune-boosting” supplements and to fortify foods with ingredients touted to “support a healthy immune system.” Indeed, market research suggests that since the…

nutrients that nourish

More Magnesium Leafy greens like bok choy, kale and spinach are rich in magnesium, which has been shown to play a role in how the body handles inflammation. In fact, an analysis of dietary data of more than 5,000 adults found that those who didn’t get the recommended amount of magnesium were more likely to have elevated levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of chronic low-grade inflammation. That’s important because this type of chronic inflammation can make it harder for your immune system to do its job, says Taylor Wallace, Ph.D., an adjunct professor of nutrition at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. Yet more than half of Americans don’t get enough magnesium in their diet. Half a cup of cooked spinach provides about 20% of the recommended daily value of…
