The immune system is our body’s natural defense system. It is composed by a group of organs and special cells that protect us from infections and diseases. It’s preferable to have it always working at its best but specifically at this time, we need to improve and reinforce it more than ever. So here are a couple of tips to stay strong:
Sleep at least 8 hours
Everybody loves to rest but it is also a necessity. When we do it less than we need, we wake up the next day with fewer reflexes, a lower capacity to concentrate and, of course, much more tired than usual. Good rest is the key to maintaining both mental and physical balance.
Stay away from stress
Stress causes our body to go into alarm mode and nervousness is triggered. Although it is not always easy, we must try to take things calmly and focus on the positive aspects that surround us. In this way, we will be able to give our immune system the rest it needs to carry out its function.
This is a powerful way to strengthen the immune system. It gets our antibodies and white blood cells circulating faster, which means they can detect and target viruses more quickly. Staying active in this way also lowers stress hormones, which reduces your body’s levels.
A healthy and balanced diet
It’s important to eat zinc and vitamins A, B, C, and E found in fish, green leafy vegetables, legumes, red meat, seafood, nuts, and citrus fruits, kiwi, strawberries or melon. These are essential to strengthen our immune system. Reduce or avoid refined and fried foods as much as possible.
Avoid sudden temperature changes
Especially during the hot months. Air conditioning in the office, restaurants or public transportation often clashes with the heat outside. If we go from one extreme temperature to another in a short interval of time we are forcing our immune system to make a quick adaptation in order to stabilize. These changes are often the cause of some flu symptoms
that we suffer during the summer.
As all these suggestions may help us to become stronger, taking multivitamins are an excellent option to protect our body and keep it healthy. Remember we have two excellent options to boost our immune system in Ardyss:
Shield, containing elderberry, a powerful ingredient packed with vitamins and antioxidants that can help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms, combined with vitamin C, B complex vitamins, Zinc, and Ginseng.
And our T-Cell Booster, which is composed of Thymomodulin, known as an immunostimulant, an aid to infectious diseases, viral and bacterial, strengthened with Vitamin D, C, and Zinc to give us that extra boost.
