A healthy immune system is the key to good health. Here are 11 ways you can boost your immune system and protect your health:

• Drink plenty of pure water to flush out urinary bacteria (six 12-ounce glasses a day). To learn more about what's in the water you're drinking, read my special report “Is Your Drinking Water Fit to Drink?"

• Eat at least five servings of fresh (washed) vegetables a day.

• Avoid foods containing immune-suppressing oils, such as corn, soybean, safflower, sunflower, peanut. and canola.

• Take 500 mg of magnesium citrate twice a day. However, if you have kidney disease or a heart blockage, consult your physician first.

• Take a multivitamin with minerals. If you are having surgery, you might want to select a vitamin that has iron and vitamin K. You can learn even more about the benefits of supplements by reading my special report "Key Vitamins That Save Your Heart, Prevent Cancer and Keep You Living Long."

• Take 1,000 mg of vitamin C (buffered calcium or magnesium ascorbate) three times a day.

• If you are over 50 or have a history of heart disease, take 300 milligrams of CoQ10 in extra-virgin olive or rice oil each day. This will strengthen your heart and boost immunity.

• Take 30 mg of zinc daily to improve the body’s ability to heal wounds and stimulate immunity.

• Take 200 micrograms of selenium every day to boost immunity.

• Beta 1,3/1,6 glucan is a potent immune stimulator extracted from the cell walls of baker’s yeast. The company Source Naturals makes a highly purified form.
