At this time of the year, the arrival of the cold weather also heralds the arrival of infections, colds, flu and lowered immunity.
As temperatures drop and we spend more time indoors, our immune systems may face greater levels of stress. Fortunately, there are several measures that you can take to strengthen your immune system and keep it healthy during the cold weather.
In this article, we tell you how you can strengthen and build up your defences to avoid and to treat infections during the autumn and winter.
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
For the immune system to function correctly, it is essential to stay well hydrated, otherwise your defences could be weakened.
Moreover, it is important to maintain good sleep hygiene, to sleep at least 8 hours and to follow a routine so that your body can recover and repair itself.
Carrying out physical activities also boosts your immune response, so having a regular form of exercise helps to strengthen your defences.
Substances like tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption may weaken the immune system, so these should be avoided.
HAVE A DIET THAT IS RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Eating well is essential for strengthening the immune system. In your diet, include foods that are rich in antioxidants and nutrients that stimulate your defences: a variety of fruit and vegetables that are rich in vitamins, such as vitamin C, protein foods such as oily fish and eggs, which are rich in vitamin D, and nuts and legumes which are rich in zinc. These are key nutrients for healthy immune function.
Some foods, such as garlic, ginger, green tea and honey, contain antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties that can strengthen your immune system.
