IMMUNITY MATTERS !
As fears continue to rise in the midst of the spreading of Coronavirus (COVID-19), many of us are wondering what we can do to protect ourselves from what may seemingly be inevitable. Ask yourself: “If I become ill or catch the virus, will my immunity be strong enough to fight back.”
Immunity is defined as the ability to resist a particular infection, toxin or disease. The immune system protects the body from disease and infection. It is this system that produces the response to defend your body from foreign substances. Covid-19 has forced us to re-evaluate and re-think the role our immune system plays on our overall health and wellness.
Your health is one of the most valuable and most important things you have.
A healthy immune system can therefore help to fight and fend off diseases and infections, while a compromised and weak immune system may make you susceptible to frequent infection and severe symptoms. As we age our immune response capabilities are significantly reduced.
Besides infections and viruses, healthy immune systems can also be compromised by:
- High stress levels
- Unhealthy eating habits
- Tummy troubles
- Not sleeping or getting sufficient rest
- Being overweight
- Not following and practising good hygiene
- Drinking excessive alcohol
During these uncertain times, everyone needs to be prepared and take all necessary precautions.
Give your immune system an extra boost to ensure readiness to fight bacteria and viruses. Strengthen your immune system by following some simple guidelines: eating fresh fruit and vegetables, try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise, get enough sleep, wash your hands regularly, keep a healthy weight, reduce your stress levels, don’t smoke and don’t drink too much alcohol, take an immune boosting supplement like Ultima Tri Immune.
