5 Quick Tips to Support Your Immune System

Supporting our immune systems is important year-round. While researchers continue to explore the effects of various factors on immune response, the most important thing we can do is to find and maintain a healthy lifestyle balance. Here are 5 often overlooked, simple ways to do this:

1. Reduce Stress

There are hundreds of studies that show how chronic stress suppresses immune function and negatively affects the body. Lowering your stress levels can help you maintain both physical and emotional health. Take a deep breath, find a quiet place, and reap the benefits!

2. Exercise in Moderation

A reasonable amount of exercise can increase your immunity to illnesses, but working out too much will actually run down your immune system — so be careful not to overdo it!

3. Stay Hydrated

Water is believed by many to be one of the most important boosters to health and immunity. Drink up!

4. Catch Some Rays

Sunlight triggers the skin’s production of Vitamin D. Low Vitamin D levels have been linked to various illnesses and infections.  Don’t get cooped up; get out and enjoy the summer sunshine, for wellness’s sake!

5. Take Immune-Supportive Supplements

Quality supplements can be highly effective immune supporters, especially those which are formulated by Univera!
