The most effective way to strengthen immunity is through getting the flu vaccine. But maintaining a healthy lifestyle through eating nutritious foods, exercising consistently and getting enough sleep will also boost your body’s ability to fight off infection.
Integrate the following healthy choices into your family’s routine to ensure that you are prepared for the rest of the year.
We can strengthen our immune systems through eating nutritious foods. Vitamin C is one of them and is found in various fruits and vegetables. Zinc is an additional nutrient that helps to build immunity. Zinc can be found in animal sources such as beef and seafood in addition to plant foods such as beans and tofu.
A healthy gut microbiome is crucial for a strong immune system.
SPENDING TIME OUTSIDE
Spending time outside offers multiple health benefits which will support your immune system. Vitamin D is another important nutrient for a healthy immune system. It is primarily obtained through sunlight but can be consumed in milk or a vitamin D–fortified milk alternative. Getting regular exercise, is also important.
