Do you often eat the food on your plate? To ensure strong immune system is to guarantee what you eat. Eat good foods. Choose natural foods with nutrients and vitamins instead of processed and junk food. Did you know that processed food and drinks can actually weaken your immune system? Eat fruits and veggies!
Eat lot of Vitamin C
My mom always said that vitamin C is great in fighting cold. And as what I researched awhile ago, it’s pretty true and not just an old wives’ tale. Fresh fruits and veggies are great source of vitamin C than those juices like oranges, kiwi, green veggies and berries. You can also try an immune boosting smothie!
Instead of drinking soft drinks, drink water! Keep yourself hydrated because it is one of the keys to a healthy immune system. Make sure to drink lot of water every day. If you feel like you catch illness, then drink up more water and more glasses over the next couple of days.
Rest and sleep
Sleeping and relaxing are the simplest and easiest way in strengthen our immune system. Sleeping is one of my favorite things and I’m going to do this too!! Ha-ha! Seriously, if you feel tired and restless then you are more prone to diseases. Aim for 7 to 8 hours of sleep to help your body rejuvenate each night!
Always remember to get probiotics
Go and get some probiotics! Probiotics are good bacteria actually. Normally, we think that bacteria are such as bad as evil because it gives us lot of diseases. However, not probiotics because this kind of bacteria help us fight possible illness that we can probably get/ Probiotics can be found in many fermented foods such as yogurt and supplements. So, better try to eat more foods with probiotics to strengthen your immune system.
Do some exercise
Staying active is also another way to increase your immune system. Workout for at least 30 minutes for five days every week. In this routine, you can keep your immune system in a good and stronger condition.
