Immunity Health Tips

GET ENOUGH REST
Sleep experts agree that most people need at least seven hours of sleep a night to function at their best. Missing out on deep sleep has been linked to a laundry list of health issues, including those that result from an impaired immune system. Studies show that sleep deprivation can alter the immune response. Levels of white blood cells, T- and B- lymphocytes, and immunoglobulins have all been shown to be altered by sleep deprivation.

EXERCISE
In a recent study of more than 1,000 adults, people who exercised at least five days a week had 43% fewer upper respiratory tract symptoms than those who exercised one day a week or less. Even when they got sick, frequent exercisers reported symptoms that were one-third less severe. Exercise may improve immunity in several ways:
  • Helping flush bacteria out of your lungs reducing the risk of respiratory infections and viruses
  • Speeding up antibody and white blood cell response. Faster-circulating blood may also activate hormones that warn immune cells of intruding bacteria or viruses.
  • Raising body temperature, which may prevent bacterial growth and allow your body to fight infection more effectively.
  • Slowing down the release of stress-related hormones that increase the chance of illness.
PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE
Washing your hands often during the day can go a long way toward protecting you from germs and bacteria. Other practical suggestions:
  • Wipe down gym equipment before and after you use it. Carry a personal sanitizer.
  • Use sanitizing wipes to de-germ your grocery cart.

STAY HYDRATED
Drink six to eight glasses of water a day. A well-hydrated system delivers oxygen and nutrients to your cells, while flushing out bacteria and other harmful substances.
