Helping to improve your immune system

Updated on March 28, 2010

Improving your immune system

There are many things that we can do to help improve our immune systems. For example eating healthy, taking supplements, and keeping active. Our immune system is very important, having a low immune system will make it easier for you to get sick or easier to even catch the sniffles, or slow down the healing process. Doing what is necessary to build your immune system up now, can save you from many illnesses that may come your way.

Eating healthy is one of the best defenses to help improve your immune system. Sugar is one of the worst things for your immune system. The things that we eat today like soda pop, candy, and chewing gum are a few of the things that we in America have got into a a bad habit of eating everyday. It is reeking havoc on our immune systems. We need to start eating more healthy on a day-to-day basis. This is not a joke. If you want to strengthen your immune system, cut back on your sugar intake. Cut down in stages because sugar is very addicting, and you will have a better chance of succeeding if you can get rid of this immune killer.

Taking certain supplements can help improve your immune system also. Supplements like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and B. Vitamin C may be one of the most important supplements. It absorbs into our white blood cells to help us fight off sickness. White blood cells are our bodies greatest disease fighter. Keeping your Vitamin E level up can also help to build your immune system Up,up,up. Vitamin B vitamins are crucial to cell reproduction and keeping those white cells up are definitely going to keep that immune system pumped up.

Exercise is another important way to help improve your immune system. Exercising on a routinely every day can help build and keep your immune system healthy. Moderate amount of exercise like jogging and bike riding are some the best ways to keep your immune system strong. Always remember when starting a new exercise program to start out slow and build up to a pace that you feel comfortable with. Thirty minutes of moderate exercise per day can significantly help to raise your immune system.

There are many things to consider when trying to improve your immune system like eating healthy,taking supplements and exercising regularly. The best thing is to do the research and do what you think is best for you. Doing some of the things above can help you to live a better, sick-free life.
