How To Strengthen Your Immune System
All of us come in contact with harmful bacteria, viruses and other pathogens at some point during our life, if not on a daily basis. Our immune system rises to the challenge with an amazing ability to guard us from their onslaught. However, various factors such as smoking, poor eating habits, unhealthy diets, excessive alcohol, lack of exercise, lack of sleep and anxiety all affect how our bodies will fight off invaders and recover from illness. Like all human beings, your body has the natural ability to protect and heal itself through your immune system. Research shows a healthy immune system helps prevent most common illnesses. The immune system’s effectiveness increases from birth until mid teens but then undergoes a subtle decline throughout the rest of life. This leads to a reduced ability to cope with infectious agents that can cause disease and illness.
Protecting Your Immune System
Fortifying and maintaining your immune system by leading a healthy lifestyle and making healthy choices reduces susceptibility to infection and other diseases while augmenting your body’s ability to protect itself.
Try these four simple tasks to strengthen your immune system and help your body protect and heal itself:
- Regular exercise will help reduce daily stress while physically strengthening your body and improving general well being.
- Getting enough rest so your body has time to defend itself will also reinforce the health of your immune system.
- To further optimize immune system function, minimize your intake of sugar, saturated fat and alcohol and exchange it for minerals and nutrients found in fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grain foods and drink plenty of pure water.
Finally, supplementing your diet with vitamins and antioxidants such as vitamin C and beta-carotene can positively impact the immune system.
