HOW TO BOOST IMMUNE HEALTH?Feb 05, 2022
"Who wouldn't like a strong immune system? (Raise your hand if you agree.) But did you know that your food plays an important part in keeping your body healthy form so that it can protect you from toxins and infections?"
Unfortunately, too many of us do not consume enough fresh fruits, vegetables, and other nutrients to keep us healthy all year. Healthy foods contain a variety of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, that help us stay strong and healthy. You can't expect a speedy burst of vitamin C from eating an orange or grapefruit or popping a vitamin tablet to avoid a cold and improve your immune system.
HOW TO BOOST IMMUNE HEALTH?
A really healthy immune system is dependent on a well-balanced diet over time. It's similar to practicing for a fight and preparing your body ahead of time so that it can deliver a powerful punch when assaulted by viruses, germs, and poisons. Other lifestyle measures, such as regular exercise and adequate rest, can help you prepare for the battle.
WHAT SUPPLEMENTS HELP IMMUNE HEALTH?
With a few exceptions, it's preferable to receive your vitamins and minerals through food rather than pills. We'll go through some of the most important vitamins and minerals your immune system requires:
VITAMINS THAT SUPPORT IMMUNE HEALTH
Vitamin C may help prevent or decrease the duration of infections. Citrus fruits are well-known, but did you know there are others? That's correct! We suggest the following:
- Bell peppers.
- Brussels sprouts.
Fun fact: since vitamin C is found in so many foods, most individuals may not need to take supplements unless their doctor tells them to. Before using any vitamin C supplements, consult a doctor.
Vitamin E, like vitamin C, is a strong antioxidant that helps your body in fighting illness. This vital vitamin, which is involved in approximately 200 metabolic events in your body, is essential for the proper functioning of your immune system. To obtain your vitamin E, eat high-fat plant foods like:
- Peanuts and peanut butter
- Sunflower seeds.
- Oils such as sunflower, safflower, and soybean oil.
Vitamin A is an infection-fighting nutrient that may be found in two forms: preformed (found in animal foods such as fish, meat, and dairy) and plant carotenoids. Preformed vitamin A is abundant in tuna. When it comes to carotenoids, go colorful:
- Sweet potatoes.
- Squash (Butternut)
- Vegetables with dark green leaves.
It is known as the "sunshine vitamin," and it is one of the most vital and strong nutrients for immune system support. There are few food options, however they include:
- Salmon and mackerel
- Vitamin D fortified with milk, orange juice, and cereals.
In general, it's ideal to acquire the majority of your vitamins via food, but vitamin D may be an exception. Consult your doctor to determine whether you require a supplement.
ZINC FOR IMMUNE HEALTH
Zinc is required for the development of new immune system cells. It is mostly found in animal diets; however, it may also be found in some vegetarian diets.
- Lean meats and poultry.
- Baked green beans.
GLUTATHIONE FOR IMMUNE HEALTH
Glutathione is essential for keeping your immune system healthy and ready to combat infections. It helps to defend your immune system in two ways:
- Glutathione is essential for the normal function of T-cell lymphocytes. This allows your immune system's frontline warriors to grow in number.
- Glutathione increases production while also activating your natural killer (NK) cells. This increases the functioning of your immune system and acts as an antioxidant for your immune system.
The following are the advantages of having healthy glutathione levels in the body:
- Reduces inflammation.
- Helps to prevent sadness and anxiety.
- Mental well-being.
- Immune system booster.
- Gut, heart, kidney, liver and skin health.
- Protects against oxidative stress.
Choose frozen health supplements when you can’t get fresh
You may not always be able to obtain high-quality fresh food, depending on where you live and the time of year. Remember that buying frozen is a good choice that may be quite convenient in our time-crunched society. Frozen foods might still help to improve your immune system.
The other thing your immune system needs is lots of fresh fruits and vegetables for their antioxidants and phytonutrients. Load up on those as well as water, fresh air, and exercise.
The healthier you keep your immune system and body, the more resilient you will be in the face of any germs you encounter.
