The year is coming to an end and certainly our main focus over the last few months has been more than ever on the immune system. In the following material I will present you with some ways to strengthen your immunity.
Let's start from the beginning and answer the question that is most often on the lips of Romanians, and not only. What is the immune system? According to Wikipedia, "the immune system is a term used in biology to define the defence mechanisms of living organisms against pathogens". To simplify the definition, we can say that for the body, the immune system is a protective shield against infection. It is therefore easy to understand that the role of the immune system is to protect the body from pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, diseases and toxins. We acquire what is called 'innate immunity' from the first day of life, but it can change over time if we do not supplement it with various vitamins.
Have you ever imagined how many biochemical reactions occur in our body during metabolism every second? Have you ever wondered what you can do to always be energetic and fit? If the answer is YES, here's what you need to do to strengthen your immune system:
Choose a balanced diet
By following a balanced diet, which should contain a significant amount of macronutrients, such as protein, carbohydrates and fat, and micronutrients, i.e. vitamins and minerals, you are one step closer to a better and healthier lifestyle. In addition, doctors recommend always having fruit, vegetables and whole grains on the menu. An apple a day keeps the doctor away! ;)
Take food supplements
If you don't have a nutrient-rich diet, especially in the cold season, you should definitely turn to dietary supplements to help boost your immunity. These supplements are a variety of combinations of plant extracts, minerals and vitamins. Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins for the immune system, and a lack of this vitamin makes the body more prone to illness. However, remember that before taking any dietary supplement, you should seek advice from your doctor.
Detoxifying the body
We've all heard of detoxifying smoothies, but few know that through these smoothies, the body gets the necessary intake of nutrients and enzymes. These detox programmes are specifically designed to provide the optimal dose of vitamins and minerals taken from fruit and vegetables. By choosing to follow a detox programme, not only will your metabolism enjoy optimal functioning, but your digestive system will benefit from a break.
