Introduction: Nurturing Your Body’s Defense

When it come to immunity, healthy living is often side-tracked in the busy lives of today. Our health is intricately linked to the way they support our immune system whether is a busy season, winter, stressful lifestyle etc. We will now discuss five simple ways to boost your immunity.

1. Take Care Of Your Gut: The Gateway to Immune Health
It is important to recognize how crucial nutrition is in relation to health and specifically gut health. In this regard, the gut microbiome tells our bodies what reactions they should evoke when combating infections. A good gut is a key to healthy immune function throughout the body.

Action Steps:

Add in foods that are already fermented such as kimchi, kefir, and kombucha.
Adding in an excellent strain of probiotics like New Chapter’s Probiotic All-Flora would help restore normal flora in the gut and maintain its balance.

2. Hydrate: Fueling Your Body’s Vital Functions
Good overall health depends on hydration and this affects the immune system’s functioning directly. Water enhances circulation and provides an important means of delivering oxygen, sweeping away poisons and moving water-soluble vitamins all over the body.

For instance, hot tea, broths and soups are preferable options for those who find plain water difficult.

3. Get Moving: Exercise for Immune Vitality
Exercise has several positive impacts on both physical, social/mental health and helps boost immunity system. An anti-inflammatory cellular response by moderate exercise has positive impact on general health.

Make sure that you do some moderate exertion for minimum two-to-three hours a day or at least twenty minutes to stimulate your immune system.

4. Rest: Prioritize Quality Sleep

Sufficient quality sleep of about seven or eight hours enhances immune health. While asleep, the brain replaces the synapses for proper functioning of the brain as well as overall bodily functions. The body’s immune system prospers with appropriate rest. Build an effective bedtime routine for better sleep.

5. Focus on Stress Management: Nurturing Mental Well-being
Immune health may be compromised by mental stress and emotional stress. It is important to understand what causes stress and how it can be managed so as to retain a healthy mind and body. Realise that stress is just part and parcel of living or life in general. Manage stress to reduce its effect on immune function.
