6 Natural Ways To Boost Your Immune System
The immune system is made up of organs - the thymus, bone marrow and lymph nodes - and processes of the body that provide resistance against infection, toxins and other unhealthy invasions. The immune system operates through a series of processes called the immune response and attacks these organisms.
Scientists and researchers have worked to see the correlation between diets, exercises, age, and stress and the immune system and these researches have resulted in some healthy tips that can help to give the immune system a better working, resisting flow.
Below are tips on how you can boost your Immune system
Get enough sleep and manage stress- Sleep deprivation and stress overload increase the hormone cortisol, prolonged elevation of which suppresses immune function and leave the body prone to attack from disease causing organisms.
Avoid tobacco smoking - Tobacco smoking is one of the leading causes in dysfunctional immune systems as it undermines basic immune defenses and raises the risk of bronchitis and pneumonia in everyone, and middle ear infections in kids.
Drink less alcohol - Excessive consumption impairs the immune system and increases vulnerability to lung infections, kidney problems and heart diseases.
Eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, and nuts - These classes of food will provide your body with the nutrients your immune system needs. Fruit and vegetable intake improved antibody response to the Pneumovax vaccine, which protects against Streptococcus pneumonia.
Take immune-supportive herbs - If you are prone to infections, infuse your diet with immune-supportive herbs like eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus), Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng), American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), or astragalus (A. membranaceus).
Infuse your diet with mushrooms, garlic and spices - Incorporating certain foods into your diet could help keep your immune system in tiptop condition.
