Eat seaweed to boost your immune system

If you find yourself getting sick more often than those around you, you might want to consider adding seaweed to your diet. This natural superfood has been proven to strengthen the immune system in several ways, keeping you from coming down with every cold in your vicinity.

First, consuming plant-based fiber has been shown to encourage the healthy growth of intestinal flora, which are the "good bacteria" that work to bolster the immune system. Gut health and overall health are intimately linked, and the fiber found in seaweed improves both.

Secondly, seaweed promotes the production of white blood cells, the cells that are responsible for fighting off invasive bacterial and viral infections. In a 2012 study, seaweed supplementation was found to decrease virus counts in patients with HIV/AIDS. It also led to decreased inflammatory immune response.

Thirdly, seaweed may be able to fight cancer with one of its compounds, a polysaccharide called fucoidan. A 2013 study published in the journal Bioscience, Biotechnology and Biochemistry found that fucoidan induced early cell death in cancerous cells, leading some to believe that seaweed extracts may have promise as a cancer treatment.
