4 Ways To Boost Your Immunity Naturally

There are many ways to boost your immunity naturally and we have put together 4 ideas for you. 

4 Ways To Boost Your Immunity Naturally

  1. SleepIt is essential to get enough sleep, usually between 7 to 9 hours for adults. Without sufficient sleep, your body makes fewer cytokines, a type of protein that targets infection and inflammation. If your sleep is interrupted, try to make up for it with naps during the day and at weekends. 
  2. Wholesome foods: Enjoy a wholesome diet packed with fresh vegetables and cook from scratch when you can. Foods that help boost the immunity include citrus fruits, broccoli, spinach and almonds. Also try adding warming spices like turmeric, ginger, garlic, or cinnamon when cooking your meals. If you are busy on the go, choose natural snacks such as our red dates and seaweed crisps
  3. Workouts: Exercise is important to your immune system as it improves circulation, helps flush out bacteria from the body, slows down the release of stress hormones, all of which can help your body's ability to fight off diseases. Examples include a 30 minute walk daily, cycling a few times a week, or taking a yoga class. Beware of heavy forms of exercise such as running a marathon, which could put a strain on your immunity. Moderation is key and it is important to listen to your body.
  4. Sun exposure: With the shorter days during the winter months and less sunlight, our immunity can be compromised. Sunlight provides vitamin D, which has been found to support immunity. Also, studies have shown that the blue light produced by the sun can help the disease fighting T-cells move around the body faster. Even small doses of sunlight can help the body, so try to step outside when it's sunny.

I chew on raw ginger every morning followed by a shot of fresh lemon juice.
