natural immune boosters
Okay, after spending more than a year scared of getting sick, I think we're all ready to feel as healthy as possible. And the good news is that people have done a TON of research into what makes our immune systems — our body's natural defenses against illness — work their best.
What have they found? There are a whole bunch of natural immune boosters that can help you stay healthy, and a lot of them are pretty straightforward.
Plus, at the same time, our team here at LSF has been working on a boost to give you the strongest immune system possible!
Ready to learn more about the best natural immune boosters? Here are six things you can do to help yourself avoid getting sick this summer:
Find yourself a Wing Woman
First up, I want you to meet your new Wing Woman. She has your back! We've formulated this boost to give your body a ton of natural immune boosters in a tiny (and delicious) package. Wing Woman tastes like pomegranate and berries, but she's more than just a palate pick-me-up. She contains:
- 200% of your daily vitamins C and D
With all of these natural immune boosters and antioxidants in there to keep your cells healthy, Wing Woman is specifically designed to support your immune system. It helps to reduce your risk of respiratory tract infection, plus it has antibacterial properties. Basically, if you're looking for a way to bump up your body's defenses and avoid getting sick, this is it!
Sleep your way to better immunity
Sleep is basically your body's chance to play catch-up. When you get a good night's rest, your immune system has the opportunity to kick into high gear and deal with any potential illnesses that might be trying to worm their way in. If you're looking for a natural immunity booster that doesn't cost you anything and will leave you feeling better in general, sleep is it!
Psst! If you have trouble sleeping, you should know that Wing Woman isn't our only boost. We've also got Slumber Party, which we formulated with relaxing, sleep-inducing and rest-supporting ingredients like magnesium, L-theanine, melatonin, chamomile, and valerian root. Basically, invite her to your sleepover to get your best rest.
Eat immune boosting foods
Lots of foods are natural immune boosters, but that doesn't mean you have to spend a bunch of time learning about some wild, surprising food groups. So many of the immune-supporting foods are plant-based and the 7 Day Slim Down Meal Plan is loaded with them too! Here are just a few easy-to-find fruits and veggies that can help you avoid getting sick:
- Citrus, including oranges (which you probably already knew)
- Red bell peppers
So, basically, if you're wondering what to eat to make sure you're giving your body what it needs to stay healthy, opt for lots of fresh, colorful fruits and veggies.
Exercise doesn't just make you healthier overall, which can help you fight off sickness. It also does some really specific things to give your immune system a boost. Getting moving on a regular basis can:
- Make the white blood cells (your immune system's cells) move around your body faster, which can help them detect potential illnesses more quickly
- Flush bacteria out of your lungs because you're breathing heavier, which can help to shrink your chances of getting flus and colds
Regular exercise also helps to reduce your stress levels, which can help you stay healthier, but we'll talk more about that in a minute.
Ditch unhealthy habits
There are tons of little habits that can negatively impact your overall health and immunity. I've got TONS of them, but here are a few I shared that will absolutely make a difference on your waistline and be a little immunity boost too.
