The 3 Best Ways to Boost Your Immune System!

In times like these it becomes even more important to have a strong and resilient immune system. Your immune system reduces your chance of viral infection and flu-like illnesses. Ever known someone who seems to never get sick? Well, they probably crush these three factors!

  1. Go Exercise!

Physical activity can help flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. Exercise causes a change in white blood cells and allows them to circulate throughout the body easier, which will help detect illness sooner.

2. Get Enough Sleep

Studies show that people who don’t get quality sleep are more likely to get sick. The infection fighting antibodies in your body are reduced during times that you are not sleeping well.

3. Get in the Sun!

Being outside in the sunlight is the best source of Vitamin D that you can possibly get. Low Vitamin D levels have been proven to be one of the major reasons for respiratory problems. Try going for a 10-15 minute walk in the sun to get the adequate amount of Vitamin D that your body needs each day.
