4 Ways To Support Your Immune System
What do you picture when you hear the words immune system? If we had to guess, you probably picture something along the lines of a bunch of white blood cells in your body ready to fight off pathogens to help keep you happy and healthy. And you wouldn’t be wrong. However, the immune system is also closely connected with many of our body’s other systems, including the gut, brain, and even the skin. Because of this, it can be considered one of the most important systems that make up our bodies, which is why taking care of it year-round should be at the top of all of our to-do lists.
But what can you do to take care of your immune system? Here are four simple tips to help you support your immune system throughout the whole year.
- Maintain a Well-Balanced Diet. Ensuring you are eating a well-balanced diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, and fiber is a great first step to giving your immune system the support it needs. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with micronutrients that are great for immune support. These micronutrients include vitamins A, C, and E as well as minerals like zinc, iron, and magnesium. Additionally, the fiber will help ensure that your gut is functioning as optimally as possible so it can provide your body with the pro-immunity nutrients it needs.
- Make Time for Yourself. It is no secret that many of us find ourselves either mentally or physically stressed at various times throughout the year. That stress can wreak havoc on our bodies, particularly our immune systems. That is why it is important to set aside time to take care of yourself both mentally and physically. Try incorporating meditation, journaling, and daily exercise into your routine. Your immune system will definitely thank you for it.
- Include Probiotics in Your Diet. The gut and immune system are tightly connected. In fact, over 70% of your immune system resides in your gut, which makes gut health an important factor to consider when focusing on the health of your immune system. One of the best ways to keep your gut healthy is with probiotics as they seed the gut with beneficial bacteria that help keep harmful bacteria at bay. Probiotics can be found in foods like yogurt, kimchi, and cheese, and supplements like Spectrabiotic.
- Feed Your Immune System. Medicinal mushrooms have been used for centuries by both Eastern, and now Western, medicine. Known for their unique compounds, mushrooms surprisingly share a lot of DNA in common with humans. As they work tirelessly producing rich compounds (like beta-glucan, polysaccharides, phospholipids, plant sterols, ergosterol and so much more) for their own immunity, we receive the benefit when we use them for immune support.
