Your immune system is your armour of protection against all bugs and viruses around you. If it seems like you are always catching colds, have frequent tummy problems, or feel weary all the time, chances are you have a weak immune system.
Combat the consequences of a weak immune system by sustaining a healthy lifestyle that can be done in easy, natural ways like the following!
Be happy and stay active.
You want to stay active at least a few hours of your hectic week. Your busy schedule should not limit you from enjoying the things that you love – and by actively doing so. Go for a stroll in the nearest park, play with kids or even walk your dog. An hour of two of these fun activities will already give your body a boost of antibodies to get you armoured from germs and viruses.
In a 2011 study published in British Journal of Sports Medicine, it was found out that that the frequency of aerobic activities and perceived physical fitness are essential to reduce upper respiratory tract infections, including the severity of its symptoms, during the cold season. So, make sure to stay active at least 3x a week.
Sleep, sleep and more sleep!
We cannot emphasise it enough. Sleep allows your body to rest so it can be prepared for a day’s battle ahead. Try to sleep for a minimum of 7 hours, eyes fully shut, every night. If you find it hard to go into dreamland, try our Organic Green Charge.
Organic Green Charge has a natural blend of Ashwagandha, Moringa, Barley grass, Spirulina, to name a few in just one teaspoon. A sprinkle of this in your cereals or in your water can already fight fatigue, lower stress and anxiety, and improve digestion. This can be your way to allow your body to relax and get a good night sleep.
Eat your rainbow.
Bring colour to your life by eating more fruits and veggies. They naturally contain nutrients and antioxidants to keep your cells in their healthiest shape. The great thing about living these days is that there are veggie and fruit chips you can prepare at home. You can do oil-free baked potatoes, dehydrated pineapples, and more. In fact, you can turn any leafy greens into chips by baking them.
One the reasons we created our xcelblends was to make it easier for you to incorporate your greens daily into your diet. With a teaspoon of each Berry Boost and Green Charge, you’re consuming 13 organic superfoods!
Be smart on supplements.
There is no one supplement to keep everyone healthy and strong so be sure you are only taking the ones you truly need. Do that by doing a self-check.
Ask yourself what is lacking in your diet? How do you spend your entire day? Do you expose yourself to sunlight every morning? These basic questions can already determine what you supplement you need for your health and immune system.
For instance, if you seem to always be feeling sickly because of stress, then vitamin C might be the one you need. You may always find yourself not taking milk everyday so you probably need calcium supplements.
These are just some of the fun ways to keep your immune system strong and for an all round protection of your immune system, be sure to check out our Super Charge Bundle!
