Stress, pollution, low-energy levels, and unhealthy habits can leave your immune system and its response mechanisms seem almost as if they are nonexistent, meaning your body isn’t properly equipped to defend against whatever may come it’s way. Winter is a time where we can put our immune system under a lot of pressure, and this this post, we’re going to share how to boost your immune system this winter and beyond.
How to boost your immune system this winter
Eat a balanced, healthy diet
The immune system is made up of lots of individual parts, which all work together to protect from infection. Following a healthy lifestyle will help support each function of your immune system to ensure it’s in good shape.
There are a few key vitamins and minerals that are known to help support your immune system. If you eat a healthy, varied diet with lots of fruits and vegetables, you should be able to get all the nutrients you need, but supplements are an amazing way to ensure you have incorporated every key nutrient into your diet, and keep your immune system in tip top shape!

Sleep well and avoid stress
