5 Ways To Naturally Boost Your Immunity
- H20 - Drink plenty of water. 2-3 litres of water per day is the optimum nourishment that your body needs for effective organ unction and flushing out nasty toxins. We understand it can be a little harder to drink water in the cooler months so why not up your herbal tea intake to assist with your daily fluid intake. Our Winter faves are lemon & ginger and turmeric flavoured teas which are both fantastic for reducing inflammation and fighting colds and flu.
- Vitamin C - Vitamin C is an essential nutrient to add to your diet throughout flu season. It stimulates the production of antibodies to maintain a healthy immune system response. The Well and Green Matcha Elixirs contain native Kakadu Plum which has the highest Vitamin C content of any other fruit.
- Sleep - Adequate sleep to renew and restore. 8 hours of sleep per night is recommended which should be much more achievable given the reduced daylight hours in Winter. A lack of solid shut eye has been proven to reduce the number and activity of immune cells which has can increase risk of disease.
- Increase intake of antioxidants - Our matcha brews are high in antioxidants to detoxify the body, help fight disease and reduce the signs of ageing. In fact, they boast 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea!
Exercise - Being physically active stimulates a heap of fundamental processes in the body to assist with overall health and vitality, but one of the most specific benefits of exercise for improved immune function is the boost in circulation and lymph drainage. Keep in mind it's crucial to achieve a balance with the amount of exercise you do as excessive activity can have a negative effect on adrenal health.
