The immunity system is designed to defend the body against millions of bacteria, microbes, toxins, parasites, and viruses that invade the body. It is therefore important to keep your immune system combat-ready.
Below are Some Easy Ways To Boost Your Immune System:
1. Drink Freshly-Squeezed Fruit And Vegetable Juice
Sipping pure, freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juice is an easy and delicious way to detox your body and support the immune system. Fresh fruit juice is an incredibly potent and natural detoxifier since it contains all the antioxidants, phytonutrients, and enzymes found in fresh fruit and veggies.
What makes juices more effective than eating the actual produce? Juicers physically break open tough plant cell walls, allowing 95% of nutrients to escape into the liquid. This causes more nutrients to be released into the digestive tract. The body absorbs high doses of nutrients quickly and the main organs are fed quickly. When you chew fruits and vegetables, your jaws do not break down plant cell walls as effectively as juicers.
Once plant nutrients is released into the bloodstream, these nutrients stimulate fat cells to release waste and stored fatty acids, and help the body’s detoxifying systems (lymph, gall bladder and liver) to flush toxins and fat-trapping chemicals.
2. Go On A High Fiber Diet
Improve your digestion by incorporating more high fiber foods in your diet, such as taking more fresh fruit and raw vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, beetroot, carrots, apples, pineapple and paw-paw. Get at least five or even seven servings of fresh fruit and vegetables every day. Wherever possible, take freshly-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices and supplement with a probiotic supplement.
3. Drink Lots Of Water
Drinking lots of water (8 glasses) will keep you hydrated, improve digestion and helps your body to flush out toxins more quickly.
4. Include High-Antioxidant Foods In Your Diet
High-antioxidant foods include blueberries, goji berries, strawberries, raspberries, green and rooibos tea.
5. Cleanse Your Blood
Cleanse and support the blood with spinach, tomato, garlic, and nettle tea. Increase blood circulation with frequent dry skin brushing.
6. Exercise Regularly
Studies have revealed that regular, consistent exercise strengthens our immune system over the long term. When you engage in moderate exercise such as walking or running, your body exhibits a positive immune response and a temporary boost in the production of macrophages, the cells that attack bacteria.
During exercise, immune cells circulate through the body very fast and are able to locate and terminate bacteria and viruses additional promptly. After exercise ends, the immune system comes back to normal after a few hours. But when you exercise regularly, the positive immune response your body exhibits appears more long-lasting.
7. Keep Your Liver And Kidneys Healthy
Flush out toxins by drinking milk thistle and dandelion teas and tinctures.
