Much of the immune-boosting properties of onions come from their sulfur-containing compounds, which also give them their distinctive smell. One particular compound called allicin has been shown to be effective against bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections.
Shiitakes have natural antiviral and immunity-boosting properties and are used nutritionally to fight viruses, lower cholesterol and regulate blood pressure. Lentinan, an immunostimulant derived from shiitakes, has been used to treat cancer, AIDS, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibrocystic breast disease, and other conditions with impressive results. Researchers S. Suzuki and Oshima found that a raw shiitake eaten daily for one week lowered serum cholesterol by 12%.
Parsley neutralizes toxins in your liver, inhibits abnormal cell growth (preventing tumors and cancers), and boosts the immune system. Parsley has an impressive array of nutrients including vitamins C and A, chlorophyll, calcium, sodium, magnesium, and iron.
Curcumin's antioxidant actions enable it to protect the colon cells from free radicals that can damage cellular DNA, a significant benefit particularly in the colon where cell turnover is quite rapid, occuring approximately every three days. Because of their frequent replication, mutations in the DNA of colon cells can result in the formation of cancerous cells much more quickly.

Cayenne pepper is considered a powerful immune system enhancer for numerous reasons, including its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and its content of immune system supporting nutrients like beta-carotene and Vitamin C.
The anti-inflammatory activity displayed by the herb has recently been shown to be heavily influenced by the faradiol monoester present in the purified triterpenoid fraction of calendula flowers. The freeze-dried extract of calendula flowers were recently studied and the study indicated that the water soluble pigments called flavonids tended to increase the rate of neo-vascularization in the body and caused deposition of hyaluronan – this compound is a major component of the extra cellular matrix, it is often associated with the formation, the alignment, and the migration of capillaries inside the human body. The long traditional use of the herb in healing wounds is supported to some degree by the results of this research and thus some scientific evidence can confirm the herbal medication's traditional reputation.
