Humans are continually exposed to organisms that have the potential to cause harm. Whether or not these organisms lead to disease is decided by the integrity of the body’s immune system. When the immune system is working properly, it can be hard to notice. But when it is compromised, there is a greater risk of developing an infection or other health conditions. While we may not always be able to control the environment we are in, we do have the ability to make lifestyle changes that will help the body defend against negative conditions. Take a look at these simple habits that help strengthen the body’s defense:
Food has a direct impact on health. Adding plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds to your daily routine will provide the body with the valuable nutrients it needs. Eating probiotic-rich, fermented foods like yogurt, kombucha, and sauerkraut are also excellent immunity boosters. Fermented milk products have also been shown to reduce respiratory infections in adults and kids. Gradually incorporating more natural foods into an everyday diet will help keep the immune system in check.
GET ENOUGH SLEEP AND MANAGE STRESS
Sleep deprivation and stress overload can suppress immune function. The ideal amount of sleep for most adults is 7-8 hours each night. Taking short mental breaks throughout the day can help bring stress levels down. Consider listening to soothing music or taking a quick walk to relax the mind.
Probiotics are made of good bacteria that positively affect the body. They bring balance to various systems within the body. Studies indicate probiotic supplements can also reduce the incidence of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.
These five immunity-stimulating and antiviral supplements can be used at home to improve your health—you can find these in the wellness section here at Mazopiya!
