BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM NATURALLY
Dietary & lifestyle changes can help boost your immune system and strengthen your bodies natural defences, helping you ward off harmful pathogens, illnesses and viral infections.
if you get sick a lot, or colds tend to linger, you are always tired, have digestion issues, a lot of allergies and skin problems then it’s time to look at strengthening your immune system.
You can strengthen your immune system naturally with the following tips:
• EAT MORE PLANT BASED FOODS
Whole plant foods like ginger, beetroot, turmeric, mushrooms, fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Plant foods contain antioxidants, fibre, and vitamin C, all of which may lower your susceptibility to illness.
• EAT MORE HEALTHY FATS
Healthy fats like olive oil and omega-3s are highly anti-inflammatory. Since chronic inflammation can suppress your immune system, these fats may naturally combat illnesses.
• TAKE CBD
Studies have found that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce the immune system’s inflammatory response. Inflammation is a vital response that isolates infected areas and prevents toxins from spreading.
• GET MORE SLEEP
Inadequate or poor quality sleep is linked to a higher susceptibility to sickness. Getting adequate rest may strengthen your natural immunity. Also, you may sleep more when sick to allow your immune system to better fight the illness.
• REDUCE OR LIMIT ADDED SUGARS
Added sugars contribute significantly to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease, all of which can suppress your immune system. Lowering your sugar intake may decrease inflammation and your risk of these conditions.
Moderate exercise can reduce inflammation and promote the healthy turnover of immune cells. Jogging, biking, walking, swimming, and hiking are great options.
By reducing your sugar intake, staying hydrated, working out regularly, getting adequate sleep, and managing your stress levels, taking supplements and eating more natural foods you can boost your immune system and reinforce your bodies natural defences.
