How to boost your immune system

The immune system protects our body from outside invaders, such as bacteria, virus, fungi,  and more. The stronger the immune system is, it is less likely to be impacted by the  exposure. Here are some helpful tips to boost your immune system, which will give you an  edge in staying healthy.  


1. Exercising regularly  

Although prolonged intense exercise can suppress your immune system, moderate  exercise can give it a boost. Moderate workout will promote good blood circulation  allowing your cells and substances of the immune system to move through your body  more freely which allows them to do their job more efficiently. Experts say that a light workout that lasts 20~30 minutes per day will provide the most optimal condition.   


2. Managing the stress level  

A certain amount of stress is helpful for us. It stimulates and motivates us to act towards  our goal. However, a long-term stress causes inflammation, as well as causing imbalances  in our immune cell function. Controlling the amount of stress is vital to boost the immune  system. We can control our stress level by changing small things in our daily life such as  having positive thoughts and laughing with other people. Some other activities such as  meditation, exercise, journaling, yoga and other mindfulness practices also helps you to  reduce your stress. 


3. Getting enough sleep  

Sleep and immunity are closely tied. When the circadian cycle changes frequently, our  immune system is weakened. The length and pattern of our sleep is essential as well:  Adults should aim to get seven or more hours of sleep each night, teens require about  8–10 hours, and younger children and infants up to 14 hours. Sleeping between 11 PM and 3 AM, a large amount of melatonin is produced, reinforcing our immune system. 


4. Eating healthy food  

Consuming certain healthy diet will boost your immune system. Since several types of  nutrition contributes to body defense, having a balanced diet is one of the keys to  maintaining your health. One of the well-known foods that will help our immune system  stay strong is garlic. Garlic is easily found in almost every cuisine around the world. Garlic's  immune-boosting properties comes from a heavy concentration of sulphur-containing  compounds, such as allicin. These compounds are known to be helpful towards in boosting  response results of the white blood cells in the body which is the first respondent when  there is an infection in our body.
