To boost your immunity and keep your body in tip-top condition for the upcoming colder months, Vicky Carson from Nourish Me shares her 5 favourite tips for a healthy immune system:
Grate ginger and squeeze lemon into a glass of hot water. This is full of anti-inflammatories and vitamin C to help boost your immune system and can also help with weight loss over the cooler months!
Our bodies recover while we’re asleep. Make sure you’re getting 7 hours minimum so your body can prepare itself to fight off whatever bugs are coming its way tomorrow!
Add garlic to your meals. This delicious clove works wonders for your immune system and can help to keep colds and flu at bay. Put it in your vegetable-laden stir fries, roast with your meat and vegetables, or take a garlic supplement daily.
Avoid alcohol in excess and try to give up smoking! A resolution doesn’t always have to be reserved for New Years – a new season is just a good a time as any!
It’s important to keep moving. The perfect way to warm up is through exercise as it also promotes a healthy immune system!
