There are several factors that can affect our immune systems. With Covid running rampant, I often get asked what someone can do to protect themselves from getting sick. Or, what sorts of things can they do to maintain a strong immune system?
Our immune systems play a critical role in fighting off infections or bad bacteria that we are exposed to. Without a strong immune defense, our bodies have little fight when it comes to fighting off infections such as influenza or even Covid-19. The reality is that there are several things that we all should consider when it comes to prevention and promoting optimal defense against potential infections!
Internal and external factors all play a role in immune system performance. A few examples of internal factors include Cortisol (also known as the stress hormone) not only correlates to the level of stress we are under but has been shown to be directly related to our sleep cycles. Our diet and nutrients we receive from foods also play a critical role in optimal immune health. If your diet is inadequate, you may consider taking some supplements by mouth to augment these nutritional deficiencies!
