Boosting Immune System

Oct 06, 2020

 

Boost Your Immune System and Fight Viruses

Boosting your immune system may give you an edge in fending off viruses and staying healthy all year long.

Exercise

Working out is a powerful way to boost your immune system. Exercise causes your body's antibodies and white blood cells to circulate more rapidly, which means they may be able to detect and zero in on bugs more quickly. Being active also lowers stress hormones, which reduces your chances of getting sick.
 
Exercise's effects may be directly relevant to virus fighting, too. According to a recent study I read, those who exercised at least five days a week had almost half the risk of coming down with a cold as those who were more sedentary. If they did get one, they reported less severe symptoms. Also, there may be a protective benefit from the sweating while exercising. Simply raising your body temperature may help kill germs as well.
 
The key to exercise, however, is to do it in moderation. Try to exercise 30-60 minutes a day, most days of the week.

Healthy Diet

Eighty percent of your immune system is in the stomach. When it's healthy, we tend to be able to fight off infections faster and better. When it's not, our immune system is weaker and more susceptible to fighting off infection.
 
In general, eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats. Items that are high in nutrients such as vitamin C, zinc and other antioxidants have been shown to help reduce inflammation and fight infection.

Limit meat, especially processed and fried foods. These can be more inflammatory. It's also good to include fermented foods, such as yogurt, sauerkraut, miso and kefir, in your daily diet. These help build up the good bacteria in your gut, which, in turn, supports a healthy gut and immune system.

Limit Stress

There's a strong link between your immune health and your mental health. When you're under chronic stress or anxiety, your body produces stress hormones that suppress your immune system. People who are stressed are more susceptible to developing the common cold. Those who were stressed were more likely to produce molecules in the body that trigger inflammation, and were about twice as likely to get sick. Also, people who are stressed are less likely to pay attention to other healthy habits, like eating right and getting enough sleep, which can affect immunity.

Although you can't avoid stress in your life, you can adopt strategies to help you manage it better. Daily exercise routines or performing mindfulness meditation can help you to minimize stress in your life.

Sleep

Sleep is another natural immune system booster. Your immune system is like your computer and it needs moments of rest. Sleep reboots the system. When you're sleep-deprived, your body makes more stress hormones which can suppress your immune system. People who get a full seven to eight hours of sleep are four times less likely to come down with a cold than those who average less than six.
 
Both exercise and getting the right nutrition helps you to sleep better at night.

Supplements

There's no magic supplement or vitamin you can take to automatically prevent a cold, flu or other virus. However, getting in the right amounts of vitamin D, vitamin C, and zinc can help. The Grow Young Fitness Supplements can surely help! Also items with garlic, ginger, rosemary, oregano and turmeric all have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and protective against colds.
 
You can find all of these things in the Grow Young Fitness supplements!
