Provided by Daily Mail Staying healthy: Kelly Ripa's nutritionist has revealed the seven immunity-boosting steps he's recommended to her Even in the best of times, most people could use an immunity boost to help them fight off disease. But now, more than ever, most of us are looking for ways to be healthier, be stronger, and should we get sick convalesce faster.

Celebrity nutritionist Dr. Daryl Gioffre is an anti-inflammation expert who has advised stars like Kelly Ripa for years and now he's lifting the lid on the seven-stepImmunity Booster Protocol he's recommended to the TV host to help her stay in good health.

'Like anything in life, the best thing you can do is be prepared,' Dr. Gioffre told DailyMail.com. 'Keeping your immune system strong and healthy is where all your energy needs to be focused on right now.'

Dr. Gioffre, who is also the author of Get Off Your Acid,has worked with a fair few stars.In addition to Kelly, 49, his clients includeDorinda Medley, Kelly Dodd,Ramona Singer,Ryan Seacrest, Mario Lopez, and Petra Nemcova.

But even celebrities get sick, which is why he recommends a daily routine to help fight off illness.

'This three-part approach diet, exercise, and supplements is my most powerful protocol to build a strong immune system,' Dr. Gioffre said.

'Broken down into seven steps, this is the best way to keep you healthy.'

1. Dehydrated Green Juice Powder

Provided by Daily Mail Green juice: He said that she starts each morning with a scoop ofAlkamind Daily Greens, a concentrated organic green juice powder 'The very first thing Kelly Ripa does to start her day and kickstart her immune system all year round is to add one scoop of our Alkamind Daily Greens ($39.99), a concentrated organic green juice powder, to a glass of water and drink,' Dr. Gioffre said.

This deliversfive servings of greens, which Dr. Gioffre says 'drives down inflammation, builds healthier blood, detoxifies your body, and gives you a powerful blend of antioxidants that boost energy and immunity.'

Green juice also has plenty of chlorophyll, a green pigment found in plants that has major health benefits.

'It's been shown to slow the rate at which harmful bacteria and viruses reproduce, making it beneficial for preventing infections and protecting immune function moving forward,' the doctor said.

'In fact, theres some evidence that chlorophyll benefits your skin, the first line of defense, due to its antiviral effects.'

2. Liposomal Vitamin C

He suggests taking 1,500 mg of Vitamin C every day.

'Liposomal Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which not only supports your immune system, but activates it when threatened by germs or a virus,' he explained. 'It is also an essential part of the skins defense system, strengthening the skins barriers.'

3. Black Seed Oil

'As much as I love Vitamin C, there is another antioxidant that Kelly Ripa is regularly taking that is even more powerful for immunity: Alkamind Black Seed Oil ($39.99),'Dr. Gioffre went on.

'The active ingredient in Black Seed Oil is Thymoquinone, the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory.

'Research shows that taking one capsule daily is three times more anti-inflammatory than turmeric, and 1,000 times more active an antioxidant than Vitamin E and Elderberry combined.'

4. Bioactive Silver Hydrosol (Sovereign Silver)

Bioactive Silver Hyrodol is 'a nano version' of colloidal silver, which consists of tiny silver particles in liquid, according to Dr. Gioffre.

He calls it a 'natural antibiotic,' claiming it has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

He recommends taking 15 sprays in the mouth and five up the nasal area, asserting that it 'kills pathogens on demand' and 'is a great way to protect your first line of defense' since virus liked to 'hang out' in that area before entering the body.

Though colloidal silver is sometimes promoted as ahomeopathic remedy, the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health(NCCIH) notes that there is little evidence supporting health claims and that it an also have serious side effects.

In 1999, the FDA also warned that colloidal silver isn't safe or effective for treating any disease or condition.

5. Vitamin D3

People generally like to get Vitamin D from the sun but with everyone stuck inside during quarantine, supplements are the way to go.

Dr. Gioffre suggests adults take a 5,000 IUcapsule daily to get what they need.

'[Vitamin D] plays a critical role in regulating the adaptive immune system particularly T cells, which fight infection,' he said. 'In fact, it's been shown in the research that one of the primary reasons why most of us get the flu is vitamin D deficiency.'

6. Eat a High-Alkaline Diet

'Heres the problem: Most of us are pumping up our bodies with acidic foods such as sugar, grains, dairy, processed foods, coffee,' the doctor explained.

'Add on the emotional stress of this current pandemic, and thats making your body have to work so much harder to keep your pH balanced, which becomes a recipe for immune disaster.'

Though you cant change your blood pH, you can take some of the burden off your body by eating healthy alkaline foods and managing your stress.

'This will increase our energy and our bodies ability to mobilize a healthy immune defense,' he said.

To that end, Kelly eats aplant-based alkaline diet, which reduces inflammation and acidity which 'can drain us of the minerals we need to boost immunity and fight off infections,' the doctor explained.

'So after Live with Kelly and Ryan airs, Kelly will eat healthy plant-based fats such as raw almond butter mixed with cinnamon and some green apple slices.

'At lunch, she will have a big salad loaded with microgreens, avocados, nuts such as almonds or walnuts, or some pumpkin seeds,' he went on, while dinner will be a smaller salad with grilled vegetables, plant-based protein such as tofu, and tahini.

'Its all about balance, which is what makes Kelly so healthy. She listens to her body, and if she wants to enjoy a snack, she will do so, but always does her best to make it as healthy as possible.'

7. Daily Exercise

This is the toughest one to keep up during quarantine, but Dr. Gioffre strongly encourages people to stay active any way they can whether it be going for a walk with a face mask or getting sweaty inside.

Kelly, of course, has professional guidance but even she can't seecelebrity trainer Anna Kaiser right now, and has been resorting to virtual workouts.

'Exercise and movement is critical for supporting a healthy immune system and lymphatic system,' Dr. Gioffre said.

'Regular exercise boosts your body's natural defense mechanisms, helping you to fight disease and prevent harmful germs from taking a hold in your body.

'It will also help your lungs flush out any potential harmful bacteria, and will mobilize your army of white blood cells faster, necessary for a proper immune defense.'
