11 ways to boost immunity

immunity

Now is the time to boost your immune system.  There are plenty of respiratory infections in circulation and your best defence is a robust immune system.

Here are 12 simple things you can do to boost your immunity:

  • Get sufficient exercise; which is minimum 150 minutes weekly for most adults. Find something you enjoy and do it regularly, starting with 15 minutes can help.
  • Reduce your stress levels; even taking 5 minutes each day to do something that relaxes you will help. It could be listening to music, reading a book, having a bath, playing a guided meditation, stretching, watching the world go by.. whatever works for you. It’s best during this time to disengage from the phone, screen and any demands. It’s only 5 minutes remember.. 
  • Do breathing exercises; simple breathing awareness for 5 minutes daily will do. Qi Gong or Yoga exercises are even better.
  • Avoid eating refined sugar; use natural sweeteners like stevia if it helps.
  • Don’t smoke. 
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • Take liquid Panax Ginseng
  • Take a high potency Vitamin C supplement
  • Take our Defence Plus or Resistance Formula
