Your immune system is your body’s first line of defense against disease and infection, so it’s important to take care of it. Here are five ways to boost your immune health!
Get enough sleep.
Research has shown that sleep is an important part of your immune function. According to this study, sleep is a “strong regulator of immunological processes” because it promotes the release of hormones that help promote a strong immune system. Adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, and if you want to ensure a good night of restful sleep, you can try using Dream!
There are a lot of benefits of staying physically active, and supporting your immune health is one of them! We recommend getting between 90 and 180 minutes of moderate physical activity each week. Click here for some tips for combining exercise with the Better Body System!
Eat a healthy diet.
What you eat plays a big role in your immune function. A healthy, well-balanced diet will give you the nutrients you need to support your immune system. Focus on complex carbohydrates, lean protein, fruits, and vegetables most of the time and avoid added sugars as much as you can. Drinking Truth, which is full of antioxidants, or taking Pure, our probiotic supplement, can also give you nutrients that support a strong immune system.*

While you can’t completely prevent stress, you can take the time to handle it in healthy ways. Click here for tips for coping with stress.
