Updates will be made to the labels and website as these products change to new formulations.

How to Boost Immunity

Eat a Balanced Diet

Nutrition plays a vital role in maintaining a strong immune system. A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats provides the essential nutrients our body needs. Key nutrients for immune health include:

- Vitamin C: Found in citrus fruits, strawberries, bell peppers, and broccoli, vitamin C is known to enhance immune function.

- Vitamin D: Essential for immune regulation, vitamin D can be obtained from sunlight exposure, fortified foods, and supplements.

- Zinc: Found in meat, shellfish, legumes, and seeds, zinc supports immune cell function and helps fight off infections.

Stay Hydrated

Water is essential for overall health and helps your body function optimally. Staying hydrated supports your immune system by flushing out toxins and ensuring that your cells receive necessary nutrients. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, and more if you are physically active or live in a hot climate.

Get Regular Exercise

Regular physical activity can help boost your immune system by promoting good circulation, which allows your immune cells to move through your body more effectively. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise, such as walking, cycling, or swimming, most days of the week.

Prioritise Sleep

Quality sleep is crucial for a strong immune system. During sleep, your body repairs and regenerates cells, and a lack of sleep can weaken your immune response. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night and maintain a regular sleep schedule.

Manage Stress

Chronic stress can negatively impact your immune system, making you more susceptible to illnesses. Practice stress management techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises to keep your stress levels in check.

Practice Good Hygiene

Good hygiene practices can prevent the spread of infections. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, avoid touching your face, and cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing. Keeping your environment clean can also reduce your exposure to pathogens.

Stay Connected Socially

Social interactions can have a positive impact on your immune system. Strong social ties and a good support network can improve your mood and reduce stress, thereby enhancing your immune function. Stay connected with friends and family through calls, video chats, or socially distanced gatherings.

Avoid Smoking and Excessive Alcohol

Both smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can impair your immune system. Quitting smoking and limiting alcohol intake can improve your body’s ability to fight off infections and stay healthy.

Consider Supplements

While a balanced diet is the best way to obtain nutrients, supplements can help fill any gaps. Some supplements known to support immune health include:

- Vitamin C: Known for its immune-boosting properties.

- Vitamin D: Supports immune function and can be particularly beneficial during the winter months.

- Zinc: Plays a crucial role in immune cell function.

- Probiotics: Promote gut health, which is closely linked to immune health.
