We are living through the times of a dangerous pandemic that has claimed a million lives across the globe. It is essential to have a robust immune system in order to protect yourself and your loved ones from the novel coronavirus and other bacteria and viruses. The primary job of the immune system is to protect your body against disease causing microorganisms which you can be exposed to time and again.
For the immune system to function effectively, your body requires a balance. A healthy lifestyle consisting of regular exercise and nourishing our bodies with plant-based nutrients have proven as an effective way to improve your immunity level.
But here is an important question: Why choose to nourish your body with a plant-based diet to elevate your immunity?
Here’s why. A plant-based diet has been scientifically proven to support your immune system. Plants have essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants which promote healthy functioning of your cells, and help maintain your body’s balance. This ensures your immune system to function to the best of its ability.
Your plant-based nutrition should be a well-balanced diet consisting of a rainbow of fruits and veggies, lean protein, complex carbohydrates and minimally processed food products (despite being plant-based in nature). Whole plant-based nutrition is full of antioxidants which help fight harmful pathogens. This results in reducing inflammation in your body which is linked with numerous chronic health conditions including heart diseases, Alzeihmer’s and certain types of cancer.
The fiber found in plant-based nutrition fends your gut microbes which is a community of healthy bacteria. This helps in improving overall immunity and prevents pathogens from entering your body. Particular vitamins and food groups that strengthen your body’s general immune response are:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D

Your immune system will function to the best of its abilities when your body receives nutrition from sufficient healthy fats. Healthy fats are known to improve immunity drastically by significantly reducing inflammation. This helps to lower the risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. Lower inflammation makes it easy for your body to fight the detrimental bacteria and viruses effectively. Some of the sources of healthy fats are olive oil, Omega-3 fatty acids and chia seeds, to name a few.
We recommend supplementing your healthy fat nutritional needs with OZiva’s Hair Vitamin Capsules. These are full of DHT Blocker and Omega-3 which have high anti-inflammatory properties. You can brace yourself to say hello to lustrous hair and an indestructible immune system, with our clean and plant-based formulations.
Plant-based nutrition is essential for an improved immunity, however this is not solely enough. While incorporating plant-based nutrition into your lifestyle, it is important to make sure that you do not look over the other factors that play a key role in building a strong immune system. While trying to improve your immunity, along with plant-based nutrition, make sure:
- You are drinking enough alkaline water as this will help the nutrients to be well absorbed into your bloodstream.
- You are exercising at least 3-4 times a week, for 30 mins. As a beginner, you can begin with a 30 mins walk along with dynamic stretches. You can then further proceed to advanced workout routines to help you achieve your physical fitness goals and a rock solid immunity.
- Stress less. We cannot stress enough (pun intended) on the fact that stress is one of the game-changing factors that can either drown your immunity or make it unbreakable. It is impossible to eliminate stress completely but it can be managed by regular meditation, pranayamas.
- Incorporate clean-probiotics in your daily plant-based nutrition like sauerkraut, kimchi, tofu, miso, tempeh, etc. For someone who has never consumed probiotic food before, we recommend starting with one spoon per serving.
During these trying times, we hope you are taking care of your body by nourishing it with a nutritious plant-based diet and taking measures to keep your immune system as strong as possible.
Stay hydrated, eat your veggies and keep the pathogens and viruses at bay!
