While some aspects of health are beyond your control, there are plenty of proactive steps you can take to support a strong immune system.
"Building a strong immune system can improve and even extend your life," said Larry Robinson, Ph.D., vice president of scientific affairs at Embria Health Sciences, a manufacturer of natural, science-based ingredients that support wellness and vitality.
Robinson and the experts at Embria are encouraging people to try these health and wellness tips.
It's easy to hole-up during these cold winter days, but it's not very good for your health or immune system. Research shows people who have more human interactions are better combating cold weather challenges.
So make sure to chat with your coworkers during the day and make plans with your friends after work. Not only will this boost your immunity, but social activities may also help reduce stress and depression.
While a well-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables and whole grains can support good health, getting the proper vitamins and nutrients in sufficient quantities every day can prove challenging.
Consider offering your immune system targeted support with a supplement designed to boost healthy immune function. One of the best immune-strengthening ingredients is EpiCor fermentate, which has been clinically shown to support the body's ability to initiate the proper immune response when needed, support rapid immune response and maintain healthy immune function.
You can find EpiCor in many popular and trusted supplement brands.
Rest and Relaxation
Rest and relaxation can go a long way toward supporting good health. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to a number of major health problems and can impair the way your immune system responds, according to the National Institutes of Health. What's more, too much stress can compromise immune response. So whether it's spending time with friends, going to yoga or taking a bath, make sure your schedule includes time for both sleep and for stress-reducing activities.
Improve your health from the inside out. By focusing on boosting your immunity as a goal, you will naturally adopt healthy habits.
