How to Boost Your Immune System

by Tia

Keeping your immune system strong is important for staying healthy.1 But how do we do it?

Cepacol®, the brand known for its sore throat lozenges and hot medication, highlights ways to boost your immune system.

Eat a Balanced Diet: A healthy immune system starts with proper nutrition. Make sure to include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet.2

Get Sufficient Sleep: During sleep, your body repairs and renews cells, which is why it is said that at least eight hours sleep is very important.  Eight hours of sleep every night helps develop better antibody response when exposed to a virus.3

Stay Hydrated: Drinking water keeps nasal passages moist (enhancing defence against viruses), improves blood circulation (enabling faster response from white blood cells), and boosts oxygen levels (for toxin removal and faster recovery).4

Exercise Regularly: Engaging in regular physical activity has numerous benefits, including boosting your immune system. Aim for at least 30-45 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity four to five times a week.5

Manage Stress Levels: Chronic stress can suppress your immune system, making you more susceptible to infections.1 Find healthy ways to manage stress, such as practicing meditation11a, deep breathing exercises11b, yoga11c, or engaging in hobbies11d that you enjoy.

Practice Good Hygiene: Practicing good hygiene habits can help prevent the spread of germs and reduce your risk of catching a cold. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.6

Consider The Flu Vaccination: Annual flu shots can help reduce the severity and duration of flu symptoms if you do happen to catch the virus.7
