My thoughts on how to boost your immunity to not contract #Coronavirus. See below and share:
1. HYDRATE YOUR BRAIN AND BODY.
Staying adequately hydrated is critical for fending off viruses.
2. SKIP OR LIMIT THE BOOZE.
Excessive drinking disrupts immune pathways and, according to a 2015 review of alcohol and the immune system, increases susceptibility to pneumonia and other illnesses.
3. MAKE SLEEP A PRIORITY.
4. PROTECT YOUR BODY WITH PROBIOTICS.
A 2014 study shows that probiotics support gut health and boost the immune system, which can help you fight off viruses. Include fermented foods like sauerkraut, kefir, or kimchi in your daily diet for added immunity support.
5. EAT FROM THE RAINBOW.
Increase your intake of colorful fruits and vegetables.
6. MUNCH ON MUSHROOMS.
The unique and diverse compounds in these fungi, not found in other plants, have been found to have immune-enhancing effects.
7. GO FOR GARLIC.
Consuming garlic can increase the number of T-cells—the body’s natural virus fighters—in the bloodstream.
8. PUMP UP VITAMIN D LEVELS.
9. POWER UP WITH ZINC.
This potent nutrient supports the immune system and helps your body defend itself from invading viruses and bacteria.
10. GET MOVING.
Doing moderate exercise on a regular basis has been scientifically proven to enhance the immune system.
