Ways to help boost your immunity this Rainy Season
Now more than ever, taking care of one’s health and making sure that we’re extra protected are things that we cannot take for granted. Especially with the rainy season coming up, we need to find ways to boost our immunity so we can double-up (or maybe even triple-up!) our body’s defense.
We shouldn’t let the gloomy weather affect our mood and health! Though staying in the comforts of our own homes is key, there are still a lot of things we can do to help get that extra protection. Below are some easy-to-do tips that you can already start doing today:
1. Make sure to get your Vitamin fix
When it comes to immunity-boosting vitamins, Vitamin C is always at the top of the list. Taking in food and drinks rich in Vitamin C is necessary to help boost our immunity and prevent us from getting infections and diseases. More than that, Vitamin C also helps with the growth, development and repair of our body’s tissues.
Whether it be citrus fruits like oranges and pineapple, or green vegetables like spinach and broccoli, there are a variety of options that can be taken that are rich in this vitamin.
In addition to these food items, there are also drinks that have a high source of Vitamin C like the all-new B’lue Vitaboost. It has a unique combination of Vitamin C and B Vitamins like B3, B6, and B12 to help give you that protection* in every refreshing sip. It comes in five different flavors as well to help give you that refreshing boost anytime, anywhere!
2. Increase your Fluid Intake
A few may know but water is one of the most natural immunity boosters that can power up our bodies, which is very important especially during this pandemic.
Being hydrated is key so our body can perform its natural functions like proper digestion and organ function, temperature regulation, and waste elimination. Our body also needs water so that it can help circulate white blood cells – which is our body’s first line of defense if we’re faced with a serious infection.
Like what science tells us, it’s essential to drink at least 2 liters a day, or around 8-10 glasses to meet our body’s fluid needs. But for those who are tired of drinking the same plain water, you can try other drinks that will also give that added healthy benefit. One of these are flavored drinks with vitamins like B’lue Vitaboost, which not only has Vitamins B and C but less sugar content** as well.
3. A simple stretch goes a long way
There are a lot of health benefits that can be achieved by doing any type of physical activity. From something as simple as stretching or jogging in place every morning to more intense activities like 30-min cardio workouts, these all provide a positive boost to one’s immune system and mood.
Regular exercise helps increase blood flow which also aids in the circulation of immune cells in the body. You don’t need to go out to the gym to start your exercise routine! Just allocating a portion of your time every day to do some stretching will already help build your immune system.
4. Remember to catch your Zzzs!
Whether you’re a growing child or a working adult, getting a good quality sleep is important to help us function well and also increase our body’s immunity. Studies have shown that consistently getting enough sleep strengthens our immune system and enables the proper functioning of a balanced immune defense.
For the average adult, around 7 to 9 hours is required but more hours are recommended for kids and teens. Try to get a good night’s sleep by drinking warm milk before going to bed, or trying out online meditations for sleep, if you have any trouble sleeping.
