How Your Immune System Works
Think of your immune system like the anti virus software on your computer. It’s your body’s defense system against disease and infections. The immune system’s primary roll is protect you against any virus, bacteria or other pathogens that come along.
Everyone’s immune system is different, which is why some people get sick more often than others.
When working optimally, the immune system can prevent sickness when we’re exposed to germs. Several factors like sleep, diet, stress and hygiene can affect the immune system’s performance, and any offsets in these behaviors can cause havoc on immune function.
3 Steps to Support a Healthy Immune System
#1 Get Enough Sleep
Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep nightly. Try to keep a sleep schedule, waking up and going to bed around the same time each day. Our body clock, or circadian rhythm, regulates feelings of sleepiness and wakefulness, so having a consistent sleep schedule maintains a balanced circadian rhythm so that we can enter deeper, more restful sleep.
#2 Reduce Stress
Aim to manage stress. This is easier said than done, but try to find some healthy strategies that work well for you and your lifestyle—whether that be exercise, meditation, a particular hobby, or talking to a trusted friend.
#3 Eat Healthy Foods
70% of your immune system is housed in your gut, so increasing the amount of super foods to improve your health this winter will fuel your immune system and make it much stronger. How do I know what foods contain the most immune boosting superpower you might ask?
Leafy greens, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory foods, such as turmeric and ginger, are great foods for maintaining a strong immune system. And, when you add superfoods to the mix, you get even more health-boosting benefits.
Improve Your Health this Winter with Super Foods
Michael and Kristel, co-founders of Your Super, were both professional tennis players. Professional athlete’s are incredibly healthy and powerful right? Yes, until something horrible happens. Michael was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 24. While recovering and trying to rebuild his immune system, he learned how important it is to fuel your body with a whole food diet.
Kristel, would share her homemade mixes of superfood powders. While taking them, he felt energized, happier and increasingly aware. The more he researched, the more shocked he became to learn of my athletic-diet’s effect on the body, and how these nutrient-rich superfoods had been used by indigenous cultures for thousands of years.
