This year more than ever, taking steps to improve immune health is important. Self-proclaimed experts from many different angles claim they have the best product, best solution, best ever immune support – but how do you know what’s true? If you’re feeling confused or overwhelmed by the onslaught of information surrounding immunity, here is a simple breakdown of science-backed steps you can take to promote a healthy immune system.
Keeping your body agile and active is necessary to help your immune system function at its best. Staying active improves your cardiovascular health and promotes good circulation, which can help the cells of your immune system effectively move through your body. Even if it’s only a few times a week, getting up and getting active can make a significant difference in your health and help your immunity.
When it comes to sleep, 8 is the magic number. While everybody is different, and no two people need the exact same amount of sleep, studies have shown that the average adult needs between 7-9 hours of sleep to function optimally. Sleeping enough is essential, as it gives both your brain and immune system time to recharge to work at their best. Lack of sleep can make you more likely to contract an illness and make it harder for your immune system to fight it – causing you to be sick for longer.
To improve your immune system, stressing out less really does help. Sometimes easier said than done, taking steps to actively soother your stress can significantly improve your immune system health. When we’re stressed, it may trigger changes in our immune system. Chronic stress can put pressure on your immunity and make you more susceptible to sickness when it does arrive. Exercise, journaling, and relaxation are all great ways to help bring down your stress levels.
One of the simplest and most effective ways to help support your immune system is through supplementation. Immune-supporting nutrients in supplements can help enhance your body’s natural immune support and help keep you protected against viruses and bacteria. With the right supplement bundle, you can support the prevention of illness or soothe symptoms if they do arrive.
