It's always beneficial to look for new ways to boost your immune health. Taking care of your immune system and making healthy lifestyle changes, means your body will be in better condition to fight off harmful illnesses, especially during flu season. Read on to find out our 5 top tips on how to improve your immune system.
1. Get a good night rest
Poor sleeping habits have been linked to an increase in sickness. This is why it is important to get a restful sleep every night. Adults should aim to get 7 or more hours of sleep each night, while teens need 8–10 hours and infants up to 14 hours. To ensure you are getting enough sleep it is important to limit the amount of technology usage in the bedroom, as this makes it harder for our brains to switch off and sleep.
2. Incorporating vitamins and probiotics wisely
Nutraceuticals probiotics and supplements are an excellent way to combat the prevalence of modern-day chronic diseases. FeverMates brings you the most respected and highest quality nutraceuticals, vitamins and supplements for you and your immune system. One of our best sellers is the probiotic immune support product, which is a combination of probiotics, prebiotic, lactoferrin and colostrum. Each ingredient has unique properties that support and maintain immune function and promotes general health and wellbeing.
3. Stay hydrated
Hydration doesn’t directly protect yourself from viruses, however avoiding dehydration is important to your overall health. As such, dehydration can trigger headaches as well as negatively impact your focus, mood, digestion, and heart and kidney function, which can all increase your susceptibility to illness. It is recommended by health authorities that to avoid dehydration one should drink eight 8-ounce glasses, which equals about 2 litres, or half a gallon. Further, if you are after some help with staying hydrated, the Oral Replenishing Solution can help with relieving symptoms of dehydration. It also helps replace fluids lost due to vomiting, diarrhoea, and strenuous physical activity, providing essential electrolytes together with selected probiotic species to provide support for various triggers of diarrhoea and associated symptoms. All these benefits help improve your immune system.
4. Exercise moderately
Incorporating moderate exercise into your daily routine will do wonders for your immune system. Whether it be a walk around your neighbourhood or attending a fitness class, anything is better than nothing! In response to COVID-19, there are also heaps of online exercise classes available to keep you feeling inspired.
5. Manage your stress levels
Managing and dealing with anxiety and stress levels is essential to improve your immune system and overall health. To do such, engage in activities that you find work best to help reduce your stress levels. For example meditation, exercise, journaling, yoga, are great ways to practice mindfulness and reduce stress levels.
