Four scientifically proven ways to boost your immune system

Sports are useful, but in moderation. The researchers from the University of Houston state that physical exercise plays an important role in maintaining a healthy immune system.

“Regular, moderate-intensity physical exercise can boost the immune system at any age. It minimizes inflammation in the body, supports lymphatic drainage, reduces the release of stress hormones and improves sleep. Besides, regular physical exercises lead to a better composition of “old” and “young” immune cells and improved immune control,” the scientists noted.

Good quality sleep: the human body starts regeneration processes during sleep cleansing the brain of potential toxins. Scientists from the University of Tübingen note that healthy sleep is essential for the good functioning of the immune system. According to experts, the nervous system cannot transmit all of the messages important to the immune response without enough sleep.

“Sleep quality can be improved with daily routine sports or exercise, low stress levels, and regular bedtime. The immune system also benefits from this,” they informed.

By using probiotic products regularly, you can improve your health. Foods with probiotics (fermented) such as sauerkraut, kimchi, and yogurt have been scientifically proven to help boost the immune system. Probiotics are good bacteria that settle in intestine and have a beneficial effect on the balance of the intestinal flora. By the way, the experiments at the New Zealand University of Otago showed that participants who received probiotics were better protected from colds, and even when they got sick, they recovered faster.

Adequate supply of vitamins C, D and zinc: it is vital to eat fresh plant foods in autumn. The body needs vitamin C, in particular, which is abundant in apples, oranges, lemons, and peppers. Getting vitamin C is proven to help shorten the duration of a cold and reduce its symptoms.

As for vitamin D, it helps the immune system to produce new protective cells, and zinc supports their function; these substances are also very important for immunity. Their presence in the body can be checked with a blood test.
