The COVID-19 has affected millions of families all over the world. In fact, four members of my family were also tested positive for COVID-19 about a month ago. Although, the infectious disease is rampant almost everywhere, there are some countries which are affected more than others. US is the affected by the devastating effects of the disease while Brazil, UK, Italy and India are other countries where the number of positive cases has become alarming. Researchers are giving varying reasons for the difference. However, one common denominator which becomes all the more important in combating this disease and others is your immunity system.
You may be affected by the coronavirus. However, whether the symptoms are mild or serious ones, may heavily depend on how strong immunity system is. How to boost your immunity to ward off the severe impact of COVID-19 and other diseases which come on your way? In this blog post, we will try to address this question. The content provided in these lines may not give you all the answers about your immunity. In fact, these are not THE only ways to improve your immune system. However, we do attempt to address three most important ways you could improve your immune system to combat COVID-19 and other diseases which may come n your way.
Three Ways To Boost Your Immunity
- Pick high-fiber foods such as oats and apples, strawberries, potatoes, spinach, broccoli, almonds, banana, orange etc.
- Take fewer calories than you actually do. A new study from Tufts University found that if overweight men and women continue consuming fewer calories for 6 months, their immune system will improve significantly. How many calories men and women should consume daily? Women should try to eat at least 21 to 25 grams of fiber a day, while men should aim for 30 to 38 grams per day. Cut calories just by 10% and you will be able to lose your extra weight significantly.
- Start using vitamin D supplement regularly. It will help you avoid diseases such as flue, common cold and Malaria etc.
Of course, all of us are mortals. However, one of the most important ways you can strengthen your longevity is by boosting your immune system. There is typically a direct correlation between declining immune vitality and declining lifespan. This is common sense, since our immune system protects us from infections and helps us respond to various challenges to our bodies.
The less efficient your immune system is the more prone you are to inflammation as well. The good news is that the more you boost your immune system the better you’re able to cope with the health challenges of daily life regardless of your age.
Traditionally, people have been complacent about accepting reduced immune system function with age. But in challenging the limitations of aging, we must challenge the inevitability of the decline of our immune system as well. In other words, we need to create an ageless immune system by boosting our immune system continually.
In the meantime, there are numerous supplements that have been shown to boost your immune system and therefore your longevity. These include Zinc, Vitamin C, fish oils, and Blood Cleanser, among others. As you explore these options, remember, just because you’ve been alive longer, doesn’t mean you have to passively accept declining immune function. In fact, building your immune system should be the most important priority for you and your loved ones.
