Want to improve your health? Start with your immune system.


Why is a strong immune system important?

A healthy immune system is important for protecting yourself from minor illnesses like colds and flus, and to maintain optimal health.

While stress, exercise and a good diet help to develop a stronger immune system, Mother Nature has some special ingredients available to help boost your immunity.

Eat more citrus fruits

Apart from their bright colours and delicious sweet or tangy tastes, Mother Nature has made citrus fruits high in vitamin C.

Vitamin C is thought to encourage your body to make white blood cells needed to fight infections, and reduce the severity and symptoms of colds and flus. Eating foods high in Vitamin C also helps to protect the skin from free radical damage generated by your environment.

Try NUTRIWAY® Vitamin C Plus made with acerola, grapefruit, mandarin and lemon fruit powder. It packs a powerhouse of a punch in just one tablet! So there’s no need to take multiple tablets to meet your Vitamin C requirements.

More protein please

Protein helps to build lean muscle and recover from exercise but did you know it can also help you strengthen your immune system? Proteins have amino acids which help in limiting the spread of infections in the body.

In fact, every step in your body’s immune response depends on amino acids.

Our NUTRIWAY® All Plant Protein Powder is a great alternative to traditional sources of animal based protein and has 9 amino acids. Next time you’re making a smoothie, why not add one tablespoon of NUTRIWAY® All Plant Protein Powder to your blender?

Alternatively, sprinkle it on rice dishes, cereals, vegetables, salads or soups or add it to your baking recipes. It has a neutral taste but high nutritional value. It’s also a handy way to get some protein into kids without them creating a fuss.

Yay for protein!

Go Green

No, we don’t mean using recyclable bags here! Go green by adding more broccoli and spinach to your diet. These vegetables are bursting with Vitamin C, beta carotene and antioxidants crucial for a healthy immune system.

Be careful not to overcook these or it’ll reduce the nutritional value. Cook it as little as possible and blend it into meals for little tummies.

Find it hard to get all the essential nutrients from vegetables and fruits because of a hectic lifestyle? Try NUTRIWAY® Daily which provides you with all the vitamins and minerals your body needs to stay healthy. One tablet provides a wide spectrum of 23 essential vitamins and minerals (including iron) in a convenient once-a-day tablet.

Supporting kids’ immune systems

All parents worry about how much food their children are eating, if it’s enough and whether they need more support.


Sometimes, it’s also challenging to get children to eat a decent quantity or variety of fruits and vegetables daily. Throw in a fussy eater and mealtimes become stressful and full of tears!

Some tips to encourage kids to eat well include:

- offering them different coloured fruits and vegetables as snacks instead of crackers or chips

- always making sure there’s a big bowl of vegetables or fruits on the dinner table

- getting older kids involved in food prep to spark their interest

- not giving up when they refuse

- grating or blending in cooked vegetables in their favourite pasta

- making healthy smoothies and popsicles with brightly coloured fruit like kiwi or watermelon
