Our body’s immune system is life’s own protection mechanism, so how do you strengthen this essential tool to have it best prepared to fend off prevalent illnesses.
- Stress relief
Improvements and exposure to all of the above will help to support and strengthen your immune system.
Boosting your immune system can help you to fight off infections and increase your ability to manage symptoms if they arise.
What actions can we take to boost our immune system?
1. Wash your hands frequently especially when travelling, after using gym equipment and after exercise classes
2. Ensure you drink plenty of fluids and consume the full spectrum of electrolytes throughout the day, especially after exercising
3. Reduce levels of stress with meditation, yoga and gentle exercise
4. Ensure adequate consumption of various nutrients including micronutrients, polyphenols and vitamin D
How does hydration support immunity?
Water makes up 70% of the human body. Even slight dehydration can impact on the body. Hydration is essential to metabolism, electrolyte balance and cellular homeostasis.
How do micronutrients support immunity?
The maintenance and optimal functioning of immune cells depend on adequate nutrient intake.
When nutrient needs are not met, immune defences can be impaired, increasing susceptibility to illness and infection.
If you already have an infection, micronutrient requirements increase.
Certain micronutrients including iron, zinc and selenium influence the risk and severity of infections, therefore if we are lacking these essential elements there is an increased risk and severity of the infection.
Whilst these elements each carry out their functions, due to the synergistic relationships that occur between minerals and trace elements, each one requires at least 20 other elements to be absorbed and work to its full effect.
How does exercise support immunity?
Exercise helps stimulate immune cells and studies show a clear relationship between moderate exercise and risk of illness.
Whilst moderate exercise supports our immune system, training at high intensities can have a negative effect. It is therefore essential to ensure hydration and nutrient needs are met when training to ensure progression.
