Pink Shoe On Air: Building Immunity with Lyndon Gee

Our 2nd Pink Shoe On Air session featured healthy food expert and food futurist Lyndon Gee. Lyndon stressed that healthy eating is the basis of good health and it was clear everyone taking part was already doing this. Alongside maintaining a healthy balanced diet, we got top tips on the best vitamins and minerals to boost immunity. Invaluable advice right now.

Vitamin D was recommended as a good place to start, it helps boost immunity and while it comes naturally from sunlight, many people in the UK don’t get enough for much of the year. Oily fish, which we should aim to eat at least twice a week, is an excellent source. Vegetarians can get a good supply from eggs or diary foods and for vegans, some mushrooms provide a useful source. However Lyndon advised that a vitamin D supplement is a good idea, he takes one himself.
