The Best Natural Ways to Boost Your Immunity
Boosting your immune system is the best way to protect yourself from getting ill, and helping your body to fight off infections fast. These natural methods of boosting your immune system may strengthen your body, but they will not guarantee that you will not get ill.
The healthier that you live, the healthier that you will feel. These methods of boosting your immunity are important parts of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
- Exercise Regularly
Moving your body helps it to stay happy and healthy. Regular, moderate exercise has been found to reduce inflammation and help immune cells to regenerate more regularly. Most people should aim for at least 150minutes of moderate exercise per week, for example: walking, cycling, jogging, or swimming.
- Maintain a Healthy Weight
The demands of modern life can make maintaining a healthy weight difficult. That’s why at Nutré we provide chef prepared meals delivered to your door for convenience. Our meal options include Balance & Weight Loss categories that will help you to maintain a healthy weight in a sustainable way.
- Get Enough Rest
Achieving a good amount of restful sleep is integral to boosting our immunities. While we are sleeping our bodies produce a protein called cytokines, which targets infection and inflammation. During sleep our bodies also produce T-cells, white blood cells that play a critical role in our body's immune response to an infectious disease, such as COVID-19.
In order to achieve a restful sleep it is important to wind down in the evening, prior to getting ready for bed. Slowly switching off our minds is key to not just getting a lot of sleep, but ensuring that the sleep we have is of a good quality. That’s why we have introduced the Relax Wellness Shot which is naturally infused with chamomile, tart cherry, and lemon balm to work synergistically to provide you with just the right amount of relaxation.
- Eat Fruits and Vegetables
Many fruits and veggies are high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. Citrus fruits provide a particularly good dose of Vitamin C, which is thought to increase the production of white blood cells, a key component to fighting infections. Try adding some oranges or lemons to your next Nutré order and squeezing a little bit of juice on your favorite meals, or drinking your citrus with our new Cold Pressed Orange Juice.
- Stay Hydrated
Drinking water is good for us, everybody knows that, but did you know that drinking enough water can help your body to naturally eliminate the bacteria and toxins that cause infection? The water that you consume will distribute oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, and flush waste material out of the body. Try setting alarms to remind you to drink, or carrying a large water body around with you wherever you go.
- Manage Your Stress
Stress can have powerfully damaging effects on our bodies, affecting everything from our mental health to our energy levels, and even the firmness of our stools (yep, really). It can be difficult, near impossible, to remove stress from our lives entirely, but we can manage it more efficiently and practice better responses to feelings of stress. Our Relax Shot is a 2oz drink that can be consumed any time that you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed.
- Drink Defense Wellness Shots
Supplements and natural remedies have long been trusted to support health and nutrition, that’s why at Nutré we have developed our Wellness Shot range in order to optimize your health with an easy to consume 2oz of goodness. The Defense Wellness Shots are powered by turmeric, ginger, and vitamin C to support your natural defenses all day long.
