Do’s And Don’ts – For Healthy Immune System
Immunity, of late, has become a buzzword. This is majorly because of the Covid-19 pandemic that has raged the world. The fact that the mortality rate is significantly higher among the people who have comorbidity or have weak immunity is making many of us wake up to the importance of a healthy immune system.
Unfortunately, it took a pandemic for many of us to realize the importance of the immune system. But its importance is way beyond Covid 19 or coronavirus.
Functioning of your body’s immune system is essential for your body to fight off foreign particles like bacterias, viruses, allergens etc. Sooner you work upon it, better are your chances of warding off infections and diseases.
Immune system is not a single organ. Rather it is a combination of a lot of different things which often work in unison to protect your body against the invaders. There is no single magic pill which can make or break it. Nor is it completely invincible.
However, there are several steps you can follow and act upon, to make your immune system better.
Here are some do’s and don’ts if you are hoping to build a healthy immune system.
Do’s for a healthy immune system
1. Right diet
Eating right is the first step towards good health. Your food provides you with the vital nutrients you need for your day to day activities.
Many of us tend to focus only on macro-nutrients like carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Worse, many of us think of nothing but taste buds – with no thought given to nutrition.
While macro nutrients are important, it is also important to understand the importance of micro-nutrients like essential vitamins and minerals. These are usually found in fruits and vegetables.
