Boost Your Immune, Because Nobody wants to sit around sniffling and coughing all day…
There is nothing worse than getting sick in the winter. You have to take a few days off to recover and your work falls behind at the office. You still have to make dinner for the family so you stand in the kitchen with a runny nose while your head feels like it is going to explode. Even if you do get to lie in bed for a week, it is anything but rest and relaxation and not to mention that being sick opens you up to a world of other medical disorders…
If you don’t get sick, you have your immune system to thank, and if you look after your immune system, it will return the favour and look after you.
Here are 10 top tips to boost your immune system and keep it in tip-top shape:
Get enough sleep.
When you do not get enough sleep your immune system and overall well-being take a severe knock, and this also increases your cortisol levels, which can damage your immune system if it happens regularly.
Manage your stress levels.
As in the case of not getting enough sleep; constant high-stress levels raises your cortisol levels. When you are exposed to high stress levels for prolonged periods of time, it chips away at your immune system.
So make sure that you get enough relaxation through a hobby, sport, exercise, or just having some fun with your family or friends.
Avoid smoking tobacco products.
A lot of people say that this helps them manage their stress, but it does more harm than good. It weakens your immune system and raises your risk of developing bronchitis and pneumonia.
Cut down on alcohol.
It is true that a glass of red wine now and then can be very relaxing, but don’t overdo it. When you drink too much alcohol, it leaves you vulnerable to lung infections.
Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and veggies are packed with healthy nutrients that help build up your immune system and keep you healthy, and you can also add nuts and seeds to this category to include into your diet as snacks throughout the day.
The immune system revolves around a healthy digestive system, and this is why it is absolutely vital to keep your gut healthy for a strong immune system. Probiotics supplements can reduce the risk of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections.
Fermented milk products with natural probiotics have also been shown to reduce respiratory infections in adults as well as children.
Take the Manna GUT Support, which contains probiotics, digestive enzymes, and L-glutamine to increase digestive health for optimal immune function.
Make the most of the little sunshine there is.
Sunlight triggers the skin’s production of vitamin D. Low vitamin D levels mean that you are at a greater risk of respiratory infection, and that is why you should be out in the direct sunlight for at least 20 minutes per day.
Add some garlic to your food.
Trust me – your co-workers would much rather deal with a bit of garlic breath than having you cough all around the office, and garlic is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent and immune booster.
NOTE: Heat deactivates a key active ingredient, so add it to foods just before serving.
Use immune-supportive supplements.
If you get recurrent infections, consider taking an immune-supportive supplement, like the Manna Immune Boost, which contains Sutherlandia, Spirulina and Eucalyptus extract. This product has been proven to be highly effective in helping to boost immune function.
Eliminate Sugar and refined carbohydrates.
Sugar and refined carbohydrates are known to cause inflammation in the body and they wreak havoc on your immune system. Try to eliminate these foods from your diet as far as possible. Follow the Manna Diet that can help you to reduce sugar and carbohydrates.
