5 Drinks to Build Your Immune System

We’re sure you’ve heard that there are certain foods that can improve your immune system and help you avoid getting sick. But, did you know there are also beverages that can do the same? These are the best drinks for building your immune system.


Water helps essential vitamins and minerals from the foods we eat get absorbed into our bodies as well as removing waste products from the body. It also reduces the effects of chronic diseases and health problems which can burden the immune system.

Fruit Smoothies

Citrus fruits are high in Vitamin C, which supports a healthy immune system. Make smoothies with berries, which are rich in antioxidants, and vegetables to get some extra vitamins and minerals.

Tomato Juice

If you’re craving something savory, try low sodium tomato juice, which has half of the day’s recommended Vitamin C and it’s a great source of folate.


We’re relieved coffee is on the list—coffee has antioxidants which release harmful substances that work against immunity. But, make sure you keep it basic by not adding cream, syrups, or sugars as they pack on the calories.

Green Tea

Green tea has flavonoids which act as antioxidants and it reduces inflammation. If you’re a matcha lover, you’ll be glad to know it has more antioxidants and contains more caffeine than regular green tea.
