With the cold weather starting to settle in, you might be looking for a way to boost your immune system.
The good news is there are easy changes you can make to get through the winter.
The first step is to add more antioxidants to your diet, and you can find them in a lot of fruits, like citruses, pomegranates, and berries.
If you take a coffee break in the afternoon, try green tea instead – it helps with metabolism, reduces the risk of cancer, and helps with brain health – and it boosts immunity too!
Have more green veggies – the ones loaded with vitamin C – spinach, kale, broccoli, and green beans all help with immunity.
Also, get more sleep – beyond food, good quality sleep helps with overall health, and gives your immune system the best chance at fighting illness and infection.
Finally, stay hydrated – drink plenty of water because being dehydrated slows the immune system down.
