Introduction

The world seems to be trying to strengthen its immune system lately; however, you can’t magically boost your immunity in one day, it takes time to change your diet and lifestyle and for your body to respond as a result.

We can develop our immunity when we provide our bodies with these essentials: proper nutrition, good sleeping habits, emotional detoxification, personal hygiene, and sufficient rest.

The foundation of any immune system must be balanced nutrition, and one of the most important pillars of this foundation is a study of the top immunity-boosting foods and how they work in the body. In terms of proper nutrition, our Indian kitchen is filled with several surprises that make our immune system strong and ready to fight!

With the help of extensive research, we have compiled a comprehensive list of spices that are being studied for many years for their effect on reducing inflammation and helping to improve immunity. Spices are not just used to flavour our food. For decades, researchers have noticed that many Indian spices help our body function at its best.

Futhermore, Indian spices have been found to reduce inflammation, reduce infection, and relieve congestion and ache, which improves breathing.

Studies have shown that certain Indian spices like pepper and curcumin can reduce cortisol levels, an inflammatory activity of immune cells.

Inflammation is one of the major root causes of several diseases such as many types of cancer, diabetes, arthritis, skin diseases etc. Green tea has a long history of being effective in fighting many diseases cancer as well as in helping to recover from chemotherapy treatment. These polyphenols, EGCG, EGC, ECG, and EC among others, are responsible for the benefits in green tea, particularly EGCG and ECG are powerful free radical scavengers, which offer considerable protection against DNA damage caused by reactive oxygen species. Researchers have also demonstrated that tea polyphenols inhibit tumor cell proliferation and cause apoptosis in laboratory animals. Additionally, tea polyphenols may protect against damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) B radiation and protect the immune system. Green tea has also been shown to contain detoxification enzymes such as glutathione S-transferase and quinone reductase, which may help reduce tumor formation. According to very recent studies, green tea contains an antioxidant known as p53. P53 is a naturally occurring anti-cancer protein and known as the ‘guardian of genome’ because it repairs DNA damage and destroys cancerous cells.

The efficacy of curcumin by itself is rather low and the bioavailability is poor, however when combined with “piperine” an ingredient of black pepper, the bioavailability increases by 2000%.
