Achoo! Winter is here and with it comes all the nasty bugs and germs most often associated with the cold. We want to keep you fighting strong so you can banish away the colds and flus of the season so we’ll be sharing our top tips, products and secrets to boost your immunity.
1. Boost your immunity through your diet
Your diet plays a huge role in boosting your immune system. Fruits and vegetables are essential in providing you with the vitamins and antioxidants important to keeping the bag bugs at bay. But if you struggle with getting your 2 fruit and 5 veg, there are many other ways to add the good stuff to your diet. Supplements containing natural nutrients like echinacea, garlic, vitamin C, and zinc will help to support healthy immune function.
2. Sweat it out
It’s always a little harder to get moving in the cold but exercising is an important part in a healthy lifestyle. Recent studies have shown that moderate level regular exercise has a long term effect on boosting the immune system and reduces the amount of colds that come your way. So start stepping!
3. Stop the spread
All it takes is a touch! Cold and flu germs most commonly spread through touch. When these germs are more prevalent, it’s important to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly – especially after a sneeze. Carry travel size hand sanitizer while you’re on the go so you’re always covered!
4. Stay hydrated
Do you feel less thirsty without the hot sun beating down on you? But that doesn’t mean that you’re not dehydrated! It’s important to get 2 litres of water daily. We know that can be tricky for some but herbal teas and herb or fruit infused water is a great way to add some zing to your water!
5. Stay happy
Stress can depress your immune system and lower your resistance to germs. St John’s Wort can help with all the symptoms of stress, nervousness and irritability and help you to stay happy!
