5 natural remedies for boosting immunity
Sick of being sick? How often in the last three years would you say that you have had a cold or flu?
Get enough sleep and manage stress
Sleep deprivation and stress overload increase the hormone cortisol, prolonged elevation of which suppresses immune function.
Avoid drinking and smoking
They undermine basic immune defenses and raise the risk of bronchitis and pneumonia in everyone, and middle ear infections in kids.
Exercise is one of the best ways to maintain a healthy immune system.
Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds
Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds, which will provide your body with the nutrients your immune system needs. A study in older adults showed that boosting fruit and vegetable intake improved antibody response to the Pneumovax vaccine, which protects against Streptococcus pneumonia.
Catch some rays
Sunlight triggers the skin’s production of vitamin D. In the summer, a 10-15 minute exposure (minus sunscreen) is enough.
We hope that this will help you stay healthy and happy this year!
