5 Effective Ways to Boost Your Immunity

OLLY Energy Immunity Gummy Vitamin & Supplement

Your immune system is like your body’s gatekeeper. It does an incredible job of defending you against infections and disease-causing microorganisms while keeping you healthy. But when your immunity is down, it allows germs to invade your body and no points for guessing- it makes you sick. Our immune systems are complex and can get affected due to various factors.

Sometimes, your immune system can even misfire. Usually, the immune system can tell the difference between foreign cells and your own cells but in cases like an autoimmune disease, your immunity can’t tell the difference between foreign cells and your own cells. In these cases, genetics and diets can play a big role.

Leaning towards a healthy lifestyle like being physically active, getting good sleep, avoiding excessive alcohol, and eating better can help boost your immunity. Here are 5 easy and important tips that can strengthen your immunity naturally!

Tip #1: Eat healthy

Include whole plant foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, pulses, and legumes that are rich in nutrients and antioxidants. These foods are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and Vitamin C that can help your body build good immunity against harmful pathogens.

Tip #2: Follow a workout routine

Exercising every day in moderation can give your immunity levels a good boost. It keeps your health in check and protects your body against a range of diseases. Easy exercises like brisk walking, jogging, or yoga for just 20 minutes a day can contribute to a healthy immune system. You can also add OLLY Daily Energy supplement to your morning routine which has a blend of ingredients, including vitamin B12 that helps to maintain the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients for maintenance of good health.
Along with a workout routine, it’s a good idea to set up a wellness routine and strike a balance between the two. Head over to our article where we share 4 ways to kick-start your wellness routine.

Tip #3: Get good sleep

Did you know that sleep has a direct impact on immunity? Poor or lack of sleep is directly linked to a higher susceptibility to sickness. On an average day, you should try getting at least 7 hours of sleep each night. If you’re unable to sleep well, read these OLLY-approved tips for a good night’s sleep.

Maintaining your health is as important as strengthening it. Multi-vitamin supplements can be a good immunity booster and is a great way to check off all the important nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. OLLY Multi is packed with essential vitamins like B1, B12, and B6, minerals and antioxidants that your body needs to keep you healthy.

Tip #5: Stay up to date on recommended vaccines

Annual flu shots and vaccines can help your immune system to recognize and fight certain diseases. So, make sure you don’t miss out on those important appointments and check with your health care practitioner.
