As we approach flu season, our bodies are having to adjust to cooler temperatures: our blood vessels constrict, our muscles don’t work as well and we can experience shallow breathing. The cold weather creates an environment for viruses to thrive due to the stability of cold air. Particles from viruses can remain in the air a lot longer during the cooler months.
We believe a strong and healthy body can help combat the effects of illness. We’ve compiled 5 tips to strengthen your immune system. Read on to learn more.
Tip #1: Get adequate sleep.
Recent studies have emphasized the importance of sleep. With the daily stress we experience, sleep is often overlooked when it comes to strengthening our system. It’s time to put those screens away, create a healthy environment for sleep and turn the lights out early.
Tip #2: Improve Your Gut Health
Approximately 80% of the immune cells in your body are in your gut. We offer several products that can assist in keeping your gut healthy here.
Tip #3: Increase Your Vitamin C
Vitamin C helps to support a healthy brain, enables the body to absorb iron, helps our nervous system function better, and helps to reduce the risk of chronic diseases. Try our Glutathione with Vitamin C here.
Tip #4: Maintain a Healthy Weight
Approximately 51% of the U.S. population would like to lose weight, according to a survey conducted by Biotechnology Company, Gelesis. For most of us desiring to lose weight, finding a long-term workable solution is a challenge. We recommend visiting a medical professional to establish a plan that will work for you.
Tip #5: Exercise Regularly
Exercise can be done anywhere at any time. At work all day? Try getting up and walking around every hour. If you work from home, take 15 or 20 minutes to do something that YOU enjoy doing.
