As fall has already come, the first threads of cold “lurk” with it. There is no better time to strengthen our immune system and deal with flu, viruses and diseases more easily.
An organism’s immune system is a system of organs and biological mechanisms responsible for its defense. The role of the immune system is to recognize and destroy all the factors that could disrupt the coordinated function of organs and tissues.
How to strengthen your immune system
There are many and different factors that contribute to the strengthening of the immune system, such as diet, exercise, sleep, as well as lifestyle in general.
Balanced diet: Diet plays a significant role in a healthy immune system. Food provides our body with all the nutrients needed to keep healthy and strong. For this reason, include fruits and vegetables in your daily diet, which are known to be rich in vitamins and hydrate the body. In addition, a balanced diet should contain proteins, fiber, carbohydrates, but also healthy fats. Prefer whole grains, avoid processed foods or sugar, and try to include a variety of foods in your diet, which you will enjoy in moderation.
Exercise: For a strong and healthy immune system, it is important to be active and exercise regularly. Nevertheless, if you do not prefer a common exercise routine, you can find alternative methods of activity, such as cycling, dancing, climbing stairs or – where possible – walking. A small change in your daily habits can really make a difference. In any case, avoid a sedentary lifestyle, as it contributes to the weakening of the immune system, making the body vulnerable.
Sleep: Six to eight hours of sleep are essential for a healthy and strong immune system. During sleep, body cells are renewed and energy is replenished while the immune system is strengthened. Thus, the body can fight diseases, viruses and bacteria more effectively.
Dietary supplements: Natural supplements can be a valuable ally in trying to shield your immune system. You probably know that bee products (e.g., honey, propolis, royal jelly), apart from cosmetic, also have nutritional, tonic and healing properties.
