Taking care of your immune system is a critical part of working toward optimal health. Here are some tips to help support your immune system!
Wash your hands.
Washing your hands well is one of the most important things you can do to prevent the spread of germs. Make sure that you wash your hands with soap for at least twenty seconds, rinse well, and dry them with a clean towel or air dryer to most effectively scrub away the germs.
Get enough sleep.
Your body needs sleep to function at its best, and your immune system is no exception. 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 enhance the quality of your sleep, you can try using Dream!

Focus on nutrition.
A healthy, well-balanced diet can have a great impact on your health by giving 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. Supplementing your diet with Defend, our immune health supplement, Truth, which is full of antioxidants, and Pure, our probiotic supplement, can also give you nutrients that support a strong immune system.*
According to this article published by the American Psychological Association, long-term stress can depress your immune system and leave you more vulnerable to disease or infection. While you can’t completely prevent stress, taking some time to relax and recharge every day can help you reduce stress in a positive way!
