5 Easy Ways to Build Your Immunity

Generally, when we talk about boosting our immune system, we don’t automatically think of a nice cup of tea. But the reality is, drinking tea is great for your immune system, it’s high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and also a great source of hydration. Many types of tea have antiviral and antibacterial properties that can help to fight off infection. And if you are already sick, tea can help soothe your body and ease symptoms while you recover.


Numerous studies show that tea can not only boost your immune system, but it can also fight off inflammation, and even ward off cancer and heart disease. Tea has been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years, and these days most naturopaths will recommend drinking tea as a remedy.

Below is a list of Teas to help build your immunity:

  • Peppermint – a good source of manganese, copper and vitamin C, it also contains vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B-6, C, E, and K, beta carotene, folate and riboflavin and the minerals calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium and manganese. It is literally the superhero of tea!

Keep in mind that not all teas are good for you, there are a few teas that you should be wary about before gulping them down.  Some detox teas are simply made for fad diets. These teas often come laced with laxatives that can be harmful to your health. Bubble teas are also loaded with sugar and have little to no nutritional value. Some herbal teas can even be laced with flavours so be sure to read the label to get an understanding of just what’s inside your cup of tea. I always recommend that you spend the money and get a quality organic tea, not only can you taste the difference, the benefits far out way the cheaper alternative.
