Stress, pollution, pesticides, and other factors in today’s society can cripple our immune system, making us weaker and more susceptible to everyday viruses and diseases. As we grow older, our immune system also begins to decline. However, there are natural ways to keep the immune system working at its best. Here are some Indian foods that help boost the immune system.

Chili peppers

Found in many Indian dishes, they have the ability to fight prostate cancer and help prevent inflammation in the body through capsaicin, which sticks to neuropeptides. Peppers also fight infections by converting blood to Vitamin A since it contains high levels of beta-carotene.


Not only does cinnamon, a commonly found ingredient in Indian food, help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, it also helps halt bacteria development in the body by way of antioxidants. Furthermore, it also helps reduce bad breath.


On the list of heart healthy foods, garlic lowers the risk of certain types of carcinogens and toxins. This ingredient helps decrease toxic free radicals in the bloodstream, fights infection by stimulating the production of white blood cells, and also fights infection because it contains sulfides and allicin. Also, by keeping platelets from clotting, garlic unclogs tiny arteries and veins. Since garlic is used in many Indian foods, consuming this miraculous food can help the immune system stay in top form.


Containing some spectacular immune system properties, it’s not a typical food eaten alone. But it is often used in curries. This food can reduce arthritic suffering, helps fight the common cold, and the flu with its potent anti-inflammatory properties; namely the high concentration of curcumin.

Green tea

According to the Center for Human Nutrition at the University of California, consuming 4 cups of green tea per day will keep the digestive tract working well, which is where 70% of the immune system lives. Green tea also inhibits salmonella, clostridium, and e-coli while supporting the growth of “good” intestinal bacteria. You can buy spices online and shop a variety of Indian fooda via
