While winter is often the time of year we need energy the most, those long gray months in the snow and cold also happen to be when our battery is most likely to run low and our immune system heads into a tailspin. We tend to get sick and we find ourselves with less energy and vitality. Want to know how to fix it—or at least put the odds in your favor? In this article, we share with you 5 scientifically proven, affordable, and accessible ways to strengthen your immune system easily and naturally, by extension taking care of that seasonal energy crisis.
First off, what exactly is the immune system?
The immune system refers to all of the body's defense mechanisms against infection and disease. These defenses include physical barriers like the skin and mucous membranes; inflammation; and various immune cells such as white blood cells.
Could there be a link between the immune system and what we eat
More and more studies are exploring the connection between the gut and the immune system. Our intestines are made up of various cells, muscle fibers and neurons, as well as immune cells and billions of bacteria known as intestinal microbiota—with which we live in harmony. These bacteria, which live and thrive in our gut, depending on what we eat, among other things, play a major role in our immunity. The more we eat a diversified, healthy and balanced diet, the healthier our gut and the more efficient our immune system!
What to prioritize?
The magic formula?
It can be oh-so-simple: a delicious bowl of green smoothie with Water lentil, banana, mango and spinach—topped with berries, nuts, seeds and homemade granola, followed by 30 minutes of brisk walking in the sun to help you digest, and voila!
