7 Top Tips for Keeping the Bad Bugs at Bay

With all the nasty diseases and viruses around it’s important to make sure you have a strong immune system.

So it’s never been a better time to think seriously about boosting your immune system and balancing your gut flora.

As much as 70-80% of immune cells are located in the gut, so your gut health can really impact the health of your entire immune system.

A sluggish, unhappy gut will result in ineffective immune function, leading to more colds, flu and other infections.

The food we eat and the nutrients it contains don’t actually enter the bloodstream without first making its way through the gut wall. Microbes in the lower intestinal tract help us digest food, (and subsequently assist the absorption of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients), fight harmful bacteria, and regulate the immune system.

When the gut becomes unbalanced with unhealthy levels of certain bacteria, probiotics can help restore the balance, give your immune system a boost and inhibit the growth of harmful gut bacteria.

7 Ways to Strengthen Your Immune System Today!

1. A great way to ensure you’re getting the friendly bacteria you need is by taking a probiotic supplement, such as Immunity Fuel. Immunity Fuel is certified organic and is more than just a probiotic - containing multiple strains of live bacteria, prebiotics and fermented wholefoods.

2. Eat a healthy diet including lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. 

3. Reduce your intake of sugar and refined carbohydrates (such as white bread) as your friendly bacteria don’t like these!

4. If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation, and definitely don't smoke! This includes vaping - just don't do it.

5. Get some exercise - even a little bit helps. Get out out and about in the sunshine for a good dose of Vitamin D - but watch out for sunburn!

6. Try and get a good nights sleep - let you body rest and repair over night. Try meditation to help relax the body, or limit screens/ t.v. in the evening before bed to help calm the mind towards sleep.

7. Don't stress! When we are stressed our immune system becomes suppressed, making us more vulnerable to illness. Sometimes it's hard not to be stressed when we lead busy lives, but try to take some time for you to relax, such as deep breathing, meditation, yoga or a walk.
