Keep your body healthy and strong by supporting your immune system. Read below to find out helpful tips and advice to help support your immune system.
Every day we are exposed to organisms that may cause diseases or infections if our body’s defence system is compromised. This defence is referred to as the immune system. It is an interactive network of organs, cells and proteins that protect the body by neutralising or removing harmful organisms such as bacteria or viruses.
How can you start supporting your Immune System?
Eating a healthy and balanced diet is vital for your immune system to work well. Our bodies rely on crucial vitamins and minerals to function correctly. You can also top up your diet with a supplement. Seven Seas Omega-3 & Immunity has been designed to help top up your levels of essential nutrients associated with the Immune System. These include vitamins D, C, Zinc, Selenium and Copper.
We all know that too much sugar is bad for us, but studies have shown that a high sugar diet can use up the vitamin C in your body and inhibit absorption.1
There are considerable benefits to exercising regularly. Not only will it aid your overall health and control weight, but it is also good for your immune system1. In addition, regular, moderate exercise can help increase the level of leukocytes2, an immune system cell that fights infection.
This is an essential vitamin when it comes to a healthy immune system. One of its functions is to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphorus in the body – calcium is essential for the maintenance and growth of healthy bones, teeth, and muscles.
Although we all know how vital vitamin D is, one in five adults in the UK have low levels. Public Health England now recommends that adults and children over the age of one consume 10 µg of vitamin D per day, especially during autumn and winter.
Valuable sources of vitamin D include oily fish such as mackerel, sardines, salmon, fresh tuna, and trout. You could also try a Seven Seas supplement containing the recommended amount as advised by Public Health England.
We all suffer from stress at times, but chronic stress can affect your immune system. Although it is not entirely stress-free, finding techniques and coping mechanisms can help you overcome a stressful episode. Unbelievably, you can destress with exercise! Find what works for you and do it.
