11 ways to boost immunity

immunity

Now is the time to boost your immune system, before the cold weather really hits.  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
