As we are all dealing with the pandemic of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19, it is of utmost importance that we focus on boosting our immune systems and decreasing the effect of the virus on our bodies. 

Being a member of of the Institute for Functional Medicine, I have been fortunate enough to receive information on 8 Botanicals or Nutraceuticals that have been shown to help the body decrease its viral load and improve the immune system. 

Luckily, many of them are found in whole food sources and others are better to supplement due to the high dosage needed.

Remember, that 80% of the immune system is in our gut. This means that we have to keep our gut healthy in order to keep our immune system strong!

11 Minute Bone Broth Soup to Boost Your Immune System

Bone broth is an incredible way to boost your immune system due to its highly nutritious content. Bone broth contains valuable amino acids that help support the immune system, the gut lining, our skin elasticity and our detoxification processes. 

While you can make your own bone broth (it takes about 12 hours), I have gotten mine recently from the grocery store. I do my best to get Organic Bone Broth, either chicken or beef. The reason that I go for the organic version is that many animals are given antibiotics and eat grass with pesticides, which can actually harm our bodies and create imbalance in our hormones, rather than help us. 

I suggest if you are caring for someone who is sick or are crunched for time, try buying some bone broth and follow this recipe to make your own immune boosting healthy soup. 

Here is an delicious immune boosting bone broth recipe that my boyfriend made for me when I was sick:
