Summer is winding down, and you know what that means - it's Nature's way of bidding a humble farewell to the hot, lazy days of summer. Sept. 22 marks the first day of fall, and we're not ready to say goodbye.
Hello, winter boots, cozy scarves, delicious pies, and the glorious fall colors that will soon appear.
As we make adjustments in our daily routine, it's an excellent time to transition into boosting our immune system.
COVID-19 pandemic has completely disrupted lives worldwide, especially for those with a compromised immune system. From social distancing, wearing masks in public, frequently washing our hands or using hand sanitizer, online schooling for kids, working from home, and ordering everything from groceries to the evening meal.
Keeping up our strength, both physically, emotionally, and mentally, should be a priority, but life takes over. How can you improve your immune system? Well, the first line of defense is to evaluate your digestive intake and opt for a healthy lifestyle and a diet high in fruits and vegetables. Plan your meals using certain foods that can help keep your immune system healthy. Below are a few immune-boosting favorites:
- Red bell peppers
- Sweet potato
- Citrus fruits
- Sunflower seeds
- Green tea
A healthy immune system needs regular nourishment, good circulation, exercise, adequate sleep, reduced stress, getting your Vitamin D levels checked, and taking Vitamins and Supplements.
There are many great at-home workouts you can find online these days that do not cost a penny! How about 53 exercises from Self Magazine? If working out in your living room is not your cup of tea, how about a brisk walk through your neighborhood? A hike on a favorite trail in your area? A bike ride with a loved one?
The best approach to begin your robust immune-boosting regimen is to ensure that essential nutrients are adequate. Zinc, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Vitamins A, and D are excellent supplement foundations. Probiotics, Olive Leaf Extract, Grape Seed Extract, and Colostrum all have unique and different compounds that support immunity in different but complementary ways.
Let's start with our A, B, C's! Vitamin A&D, Vitamin C, and Zinc are essential nutrients that you need daily, and you want to ensure they are in the food you eat daily. If you are like most people, you have a hard time eating all the suitable vegetables to boost your immune system; this is where supplementation comes in handy! With the appropriate supplementation and a healthy diet, you can reduce the frequency of colds and flu.
Every person's needs are different, but you can help bolster your immune defenses with preventive measures.
