5 Tips to Optimize Immune Function
With everything going on today, investing in your health and protecting your immune system is more important than ever before, no matter how young or old, fit or unfit, you are. While you will never be able to avoid illness and infection 100%, there are several things you can do to make sure your immune system is prepped and prepared for anything.
Today, we’re giving you 5 tips to optimize immune function.
#1 Limit Alcohol Consumption
We get it, after a long day, nothing sounds better than a refreshing cocktail or crisp cold beer, but as enjoyable as that may be, over consuming alcohol can wreck your immune system.
#2 Drink Enough Fluids
Water is essential to life. Therefore, being dehydrated can significantly impair optimal function of the immune system, not to mention physical performance, cognitive function, recovery, and memory can also be impaired by dehydration.
#3 Get Enough Sleep
Simply put, you need to get enough sleep each and every night if you want to optimize immune function. Studies show chronic sleep deprivation is associated with an increase in inflammatory markers as well as immunodeficiency.
#4 Practice Good Hygiene
WASH YOUR HANDS! Keeping your hands clean helps prevent the spread of germs and getting an infection. Regular hand washing can also help prevent respiratory infections and help prevent skin and eye infections.
#5 Support Gut Health
Your gut health impacts everything in your body from your mood to your performance to your immune function. Keeping a happy, healthy gut is paramount to the body’s ability to effectively resist infection and fight it off when it does encounter a pathogen.
