Simple Ways to Boost Your Immune System

By Lexi Herrin

There are a lot of different factors that go into our overall health. One of the biggest things that helps us fight off infection and disease is our immune system. There are several ways that can help you boost your immune system, in turn boosting your overall health and helping your body run more smoothly. Some of the things that you can do to improve immune function and overall health include diet, exercise, and herb and vitamin supplement consumption/ 

Diet 

Your diet can help improve your overall health by helping you get the nutrients that you need to fight off disease and infections. If your body isn't getting the necessary nutrients it may not function at its very best. One way to help ensure that your body is functioning properly is to make sure you eat foods with those nutrients that you need. Generally, a colorful fruit and vegetable intake will help you get the nutrients needed and if you aren't, you can always change up your diet or even add vitamins supplements if needed. For example, vitamin C is abundant in oranges but can also be taken as a supplement and it helps your body function properly.

Herbs and Supplements

While there is no evidence that specific herbs and supplements can improve your immune function, some may help improve your overall health. Sometimes people do not get all of the nutrients that their body needs in their diet and in order to get those nutrients they take vitamin supplements. Those supplements can help your body get the nutrients that it needs to function properly, in turn, improving your overall health and immune function.

Exercise

Believe it or not, exercise is one of the simple ways that you can boost your immune system. It helps improve cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control body weight, and protects against a variety of diseases. Because exercise helps boost your general health, it can also help boost your immune system and improve circulation throughout your body which also improves your overall health.
