With all that’s going on in the world today, we need to do all we can to keep our immune systems as strong as possible. Fortunately, there are some simple, natural ways to accomplish this. Here are ten tips about how you can strengthen your immune system.
10. Eat Plenty of Fruits and Vegetables
By now everyone knows that a diet high in fruits and vegetables is good for your health. In fact, according to Dr. Oz, fruits and vegetables enhance your immune response. Now, we know there are some of you who cringe at the thought of eating vegetables. But, there are alternative ways you can do it and still reap the health benefits. For example, you can try Dr. Oz’s “green energy machine” smoothie recipe, which includes spinach, matcha powder, almond milk, pitted dates, and half a frozen banana.
9. Get Plenty of Exercise
Exercising regularly is good for your immune system because it contributes to overall good health. It lowers your blood pressure, improves your cardiovascular health, and helps you maintain a healthy weight — something else that’s also important for a healthy immune system. It also protects you against a variety of diseases. But, perhaps most important of all, regular exercise may contribute more directly to a healthy immune system by promoting good circulation, which allows your cells and substances of your immune system to move through your body freely and do their job efficiently.
