DID YOU KNOW ?
With Covid-19 currently affecting most countries in the world, millions are gravely concerned about their health and the well-being of their families.
Whether restrictions of freedom, “lockdowns”, “social distancing”, face-masks, and inoculations with a quick-fix vaccine are the best way to safeguard their health, everyone must decide for themselves.
The good news is that we all are equipped with an immune system that is generally quite capable to defend us from infections such as Covid and other even more serious infectious diseases.
Here are some tips that may help to ensure that your immune system is geared up for this important task.
Regular non-exhaustive physical exercise, a healthy diet, low in processed foods and high in fruits and vegetables, staying well hydrated, and getting enough sleep are the keys to a strong immune system.
The consumption of sweets and sugar can temporarily decrease your body’s ability to fight off viruses and other infections for up to 5 hours; minimizing your sugar intake is one of the most powerful measures to boost your immune system.
Limiting alcohol consumption is vital, as alcohol diminishes the immune response by killing healthy probiotic gut bacteria, the front line of the immune system. Alcohol also damages your lungs’ immune cells, including the ciliary cells lining our airway, which decreases their efficiency in clearing pathogenic viral particles out.
Be concerned with proper stress management, as stress produces cortisol which reduces the function of your immune system by suppressing the production of both T-lymphocytes and antibodies, leaving you more vulnerable for infection.
As people with low blood levels of Vitamin D appear to be at a higher risk of infection, or have worse outcomes with Covid or other viral infections, taking 4000 i.u. of vitamin D3 daily with your breakfast may be a good insurance policy.
Zinc also positively affects multiple aspects of the immune system; zinc lozenges, in total up to 75 mg of zinc/day, are typically taken every one to two hours after onset of symptoms until the symptoms are gone. Vitamin C, taken several times throughout the day, will likewise boost immunity.
