Natural ways to boost immunity during summer

Varnika Srivastava

Here are a few ways to boost immunity during the summer season.

Consume foods rich in vitamins C, D, folic acid, vegetables, cereals, pulses, beta carotene, zinc, green leafy vegetables, nuts, whole grains, sprouts, and dairy products for optimal health.


Hydration is crucial for enhancing the immune system and removing harmful toxins and bacteria that can cause illness.


Getting enough sleep boosts the body's production of cytokines, a protein that targets infection and inflammation, thereby triggering an immune response.


Exercise boosts immunity by producing hormones and flushing out toxins through sweating, aiding in the fight against germs.


Vitamin C safeguards the skin and body from harmful UV rays, enhances immune system strength, and prevents heat stroke and heat rash.

During summer, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals are crucial for protecting the body from free radical damage and environmental stressors.
