The human body functions as a complex mechanism with interconnected and interdependent parts. You probably already know that what you eat can have a significant impact on weight and energy levels. Thus, the impact of diet on the immune system is likely more significant than you think.
Since the digestive system contains roughly 70% of the immune system, maintaining good digestive health can be instrumental in addressing many of our bodies’ ills. Therefore, a higher level of diversity in gut bacteria may be associated with improved health. It appears clear that your gut health plays a role in many areas of your health and well-being.
This is why maintaining the balance and health of your digestive system is important to protect your immune system.
8 essential tips to maintain your immunity:
– Reduce your levels of stress
Find a way to reduce your stress levels that is compatible with your daily routine, whether it be spending time with yourself or a pet, getting a massage, meditating, etc.
– Get enough sleep
Getting enough or sufficient quality of sleep is a must. Try to prioritise getting at least 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night.
– Eat slowly
Chewing your food thoroughly may lower your chances of developing obesity and diabetes.
– Stay hydrated
Drinking plenty of water may be linked to an increased diversity of bacteria in the gut.
– Take a prebiotic or probiotic
Eating balanced amounts of both prebiotics and probiotics can help ensure that you have the right balance of these bacteria to keep your gut healthy.
– Change your diet
Reducing the amount of processed, high-sugar, and high-fat foods and increasing the amount of high-fibre foods may also contribute to a healthy gut microbiome.
