Our immune systems are designed to fight off sicknesses and viruses. But unfortunately, the immune system can get worn down by many different things typical of a modern life like stress, toxins, lack of exercise and unhealthy eating. This prevents our bodies from effectively fighting off sickness.
With coronavirus continuing to spread, it is more important than ever to support the immune system. We can do this by making a few key slight changes to our daily routine. Here are 6 essential ways to boost your immunity and fight against COVID19:
- Reduce Stress:
When we’re stressed out, our body produces stress hormones which tax the immune system. One of the most important ways to boost immunity is to reduce stress. To reduce stress, it’s key to ensure you have work life balance, take breaks when you need them and opt for some calming or relaxing stress-reduction techniques like deep breathing and yoga.
- Sleep when you are tired
By not sleeping enough, we increase stress and hurt our immunity. If we’re drinking caffeinated drinks all the time, we may not even realize just how tired we really are. Because sleeping is important to rebuilding a struggling immune system, we need to let ourselves sleep as much as we need.
- Consume immunity-boosting vitamins & supplements
To support your immune system, you can eat immunity supporting foods like citrus fruits, garlic, broccoli, and spinach. If your immune system is already weak, it can also be helpful to supplement with key vitamins and minerals that may have become depleted like Vitamin C, Echinacea, Vitamin D, and Zinc. LUNG BOOST’s formula has these and other key ingredients to help you boost your immune system.
- Reduce inflammation
Sugar, processed meat, vegetable oils, and alcohol are all inflammatory foods and they silently harm the immune system, leaving other problems in your body unaddressed. Try to lessen the consumption of these foods if possible.
Exercise can be one of the best things to do to boost your immunity. Start slowly by taking a daily walk.
- Stay away from toxins
Toxins can be devastating for the immune system. For example, mycotoxins from mold are notorious for destroying immunity. Many other toxins seem to have detrimental impact on immunity as well. Try to minimize exposure to chlorinated drinking water, pesticides, aromatic hydrocarbons heavy metals, air pollution, and food additives.
By taking these actions, we can help prevent ourselves and our loved ones from suffering significantly from the Coronavirus.
