4 Holistic Ways to Balance Your Immunity
Our immune system is complex and powerful, but it’s also a beautiful thing constantly working to protect our bodies against illness and disease.
Balancing your immune system doesn’t have to be difficult. Check out 4 holistic ways you can balance your immunity, starting today:
1. Get a good night’s sleep
For all of the go-getters out there who are seeking to find that balance between work and play, or for those who are simply struggling to get quality sleep throughout the night, a lack of sleep can have a direct impact on your mental and physical health, including your immunity.
When the circadian rhythm (that process that establishes normal sleep and wake) in your body is altered or disrupted, this can cause inflammation and have a negative effect on your health. Routines like going to sleep and waking up at the same time every day or actively working to combat stressors in your life are just a few ways to start.
2. Move more
How have you been moving your body lately? Regular exercise and movement is not only great for our mental health, but for our physical health, too.
Physical activity enhances the body’s immune response to bacteria. It also has an anti-inflammatory influence on the immune response so that your body has better health outcomes. Even just a few minutes of movement daily can make all the difference.
3. Up your vitamin C intake
We all know there are plenty of vitamins that each play their own unique roles for our bodies. For immunity, there are few vitamins that are considered essential to boost your immune system. This includes Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E. Whether you decide to consume these vitamins via supplements or through food (we are fans of getting them through whole foods and plants!), you’ll be setting your immune system up for success.
4. Incorporate more immunity-boosting foods & beverages
Just like vitamins, there are many different foods, herbs and spices that each have their own individual set of health benefits for your body.
Reishi mushrooms are one of the key immunity-boosting foods that also happen to be featured in our Adaptonics™. Our key to making them as tasteless as possible while still reaping their immunity-boosting properties? Extracting their beta-glucans, which you can read all about, here.
A diet high in immunity-boosting foods will set your immune function up for success. Your body will be prepared to fight off infection and illness when it is properly fueled with the right nutrients.
Today, it’s so easy to incorporate immunity-boosting foods and practices naturally. In fact, it’s one of the things we strive for here at Rowdy Mermaid. Our Mermaid Locator makes it easier than ever to find our Adaptonics™ or Kombucha in a store near you so you can start your journey to a more balanced immunity, today.
