5 ways to boost your immunity

Get more sleep!

Sleep and immunity are closely tied.

A poor quality sleep is linked to a higher chance of getting sick.

Getting enough adequate rest may strengthen your natural immunity and adults should aim to get 7 or more hours of sleep each night to benefit from a good sleep! 

If you’re having trouble sleeping, try limiting screen time for an hour before bed, as the blue light emitted from your phone, TV, and computer may disrupt your circadian rhythm, or your body’s natural wake-sleep cycle.

Sleeping in a completely dark room or using a cute sleep mask can help, as will going to bed at the same time every night, if you can. 

Eat more whole plant foods

Eat your veggies people!

Whole plant foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes are rich in nutrients and antioxidants that may give you an upper hand against harmful germs.

The antioxidants in these foods help decrease inflammation by combatting free radicals, which can cause inflammation when they build up in your body in high levels.

The fibers in plant foods help to feed your gut with all kinds of healthy bacteria and a great gut can to improve your immunity. Our Collagen products can also help with this. 

Fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients like vitamin C, which may reduce the duration of the common cold, and also make for happy skin!

Limit added sugars

Emerging research suggests that added sugar and refined carbs may contribute disproportionately to overweight and obesity on overall general unwellness. 

Curbing your sugar intake can decrease inflammation and aid in weight loss, which can then help in reducing your risk of any harmful sickness.  

Get your body moving!

Exercise can make you feel great!

Moderate exercise can gives you a boost and helps reduce inflammation in the body.

Stay hydrated

This is key to your wellness! 

Hydration doesn’t necessarily protect you from germs and viruses, but preventing dehydration is important to your overall health.

Dehydration can cause headaches and hinder your physical performance, focus, mood, digestion, and heart and kidney function.

As a general guideline, you should drink when you’re thirsty and stop when you’re no longer thirsty.

You may need more fluids if you exercise intensely, work outside, or live in a hot climate like here in the Middle East!
