Boost your immune system, naturally!

Boost your immune system, naturally!

Eating a well balanced diet and doing regular exercise can help ensure a healthy immune system, which in turn eliminates the rise of short or long-term illnesses or diseases.

Boosting your immune system doesn’t have to be as costly or time consuming as you think. There are endless remedies and medications you can take in order to boost your immunity, but did you know you could achieve this naturally?

Here are a few ways you could boost your immune system, naturally:

Increase your daily magnesium intake: the recommended daily intake of magnesium is around 300 milligrams for women and 350 milligrams for men. By adding a handful of almonds, hazelnuts or cashew nuts to your daily diet you could improve your sleeping pattern and even ensure healthy bones.

Take a walk around the block: your energy levels increase when your physical activity is increased. A brisk 10-minute walk not only increases energy, but will also lift your mood – leaving you feeling great!

Power naps are important: studies by the National Institute of Mental Health found that a 60-minute ‘power nap’ can not only reverse the effects of information overload, but it could also help you better retain information.

Breakfast IS the most important meal of the day: those who eat breakfast are said to be in a better mood, and have more energy – allowing you to tackle the rest of your day efficiently. Missing a meal could also lead to fatigue.

Curb your sugar consumption: consuming too much sugar restrains your immune system cells that attacks bad bacteria. Replace sugary foods with brightly coloured fruits and vegetables like berries and grapes to ensure your energy levels stay high.

De-stress: control your stress levels with daily relaxation techniques. On-going stress places great strain on your immune system, and this makes you susceptible to viruses.

These easy additions to your daily routine or diet could leave you healthier, feeling energised and looking fresh!
