The best defence against the common cold, influenza and infection is your immune system.
Your immune system is a complex network of organs, cells and processes that keeps you healthy by fighting off the microbes that cause illness.
Overall, your immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes your defences are down and a germ invades successfully and makes you sick. What if it were possible to intervene in this process and boost your immune system?
The most important thing you can do to keep your immune system strong is maintaining a healthy balanced lifestyle. This includes getting enough sleep and exercise, eating a nutritious diet and keeping stress levels under control. Easier said than done, right? Sometimes life takes over and our body requires a little more support and nourishment. For example, chronic stress will eventually lower immunity and deplete the adrenal glands of vitamin C, modern living and the demands of work and family can have us reach for processed food high in sugar, salt and unhealthy fats this may cause deficiencies in minerals such as zinc and selenium which are vital for proper immune response.
Antibiotic use can disrupt the guts natural balance of good bacteria which in-turn can have negative effects on our immunity. There are a variety of supplements to boost immune system function. Herbal medicines such as Echinacea, Olive leaf, Andrographis, elderberry can be taken at the first sign of a cold or flu. Immune bosting vitamins and minerals include Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Zinc and selenium.
To give your immune system the upper-hand and ward off the cold this winter reach for natural immune boosters such as garlic, a broad-spectrum probiotic, mushroom combinations such as Reishi, Shitake, Cordyceps, and Trametes.
