Your immune system works daily to fight off the infections inside and outside the body to keep you safe and healthy. In addition, you should know some ways to boost your immune system so that it works perfectly and keeps you healthy.
A key to a robust immune system is by maintaining a healthy diet. Make sure you always try to maintain a healthy diet that includes green leafy vegetables, fruits, legumes, lean proteins, and healthy fats, which can provide you with the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals according to your need. Along with these, your body also needs micronutrients like vitamins B6, C, E, and zinc and magnesium to carry out the smooth functioning of your immune system. Some food containing these micronutrients are chicken, fish, citrus fruits, nuts, and whole meat.
We always hear from our peers and friends to drink plenty of water, but nobody asks why. Even if water might not help fight bacteria and viruses, it keeps your body hydrated, as dehydration can cause headaches and affect your overall health and heart and kidney function.
A single session (20 to 25 mins) of exercise within a day can boost your effectiveness and keep you active. You can perform any type of exercise, like brisk walking, jogging, swimming, and cycling.
Living a calm and stress-free life these days is tricky, but it is essential for your immune health as it is found that relieving stress and anxiety can help manage inflammation and aid in balancing immune cell function. Activities like meditation, yoga, and other mindful practices can help keep your stress levels within the limit.
Both sleep and the immune system are closely related. Our schedule might interfere with our sleep cycle, but it is recommended that you get at least 6 hours of sleep or more to maintain a healthy immune system. Getting 7 hours or more is always good as it strengthens your natural immunity.

Limiting your sugar and carbohydrate intake is another way of prioritising health, as both lead to obesity. Obesity is more likely to weaken your immunity. Curbing your sugar and carbohydrate intake can help manage inflammation and reduce your weight, thus reducing the risk of chronic disease, diabetes and heart disease.
