The Best Ways to Supplement Your Immune System
Have you ever wondered how your immune system works? Do you know how important it is to have one that functions at optimum? Here’s how and why.
During the flu season or times of illness (including this stressful COVID-19 period!), people often seek special foods or supplements that are believed to boost immunity. Popular examples include citrus fruits, chicken soup, and tea with honey.
Yet, our immune system is complex and is influenced by many factors, not just your diet. A balanced diet will help in addition to healthy lifestyle factors like adequate sleep, exercise and low stress to allow your immune system to do the best of its ability in protecting you.
Your immune system works for you
Your immune system is essential for survival
Your immune system starts with a healthy gut
With all the work that your immune system does, there are times when it can weaken. The good news is, you can support your immune system through proper supplementation and nutrition. Yes, it is always ideal to get important nutrients from food but some vitamins can be difficult to get enough of from diet alone. So, which supplements are the best for boosting your immunity?
