Germs, bacteria, and viruses are all around us, always searching for a way to invade our bodies. Over millions of years of evolution, our bodies have created a strong line of defense against such invaders, called the immune system. Our natural immunity system is good at what it does, but it’s up to us to support it and keep it healthy.
There are five main things you can do to strengthen your immune system. By supporting your body’s natural defenses, you will get sick less often and have more energy overall.
1. Get Better Sleep
Make sure to get enough sleep. Poor sleep has long-term effects on our vulnerability to illness. Reducing stress is one step towards getting a better night’s sleep. Other helpful tips include having a regular bedtime routine, avoiding screen time an hour before bed, and getting regular exercise each day.
2. Walk More Or Exercise Regularly
Regular moderate exercise can help boost the immune system and increase the effectiveness of vaccines. Moderate exercise can be as simple as a daily walk and is easy enough for anyone to accomplish even if you aren’t used to regular exercise. You can also go bike riding, swim, or do a fun hobby like hiking.
3. Take IMMUNITY by Empyrean
IMMUNITY Support is a tincture created with a blend of seven (7) adaptogenic mushrooms, oregano, and orange extracts. This carefully combined powerhouse can help prevent viral and bacterial infections. It also helps our body cope with stress. In fact, you’ll see that IMMUNITY actually helps support many of our other tips included in this article.
4. Manage Your Stress
When your body is frequently under stress, it pumps out cortisol, triggering the fight or flight response. Your body becomes so wrapped up fighting the effects of stress that it can’t allocate resources to support the immune system. Our defenses are split and, therefore, less effective at fighting disease. Adaptogenic mushrooms and other botanicals continued in the IMMUNITY tincture are able to help reduce stress in the body, so your immune system is free to function properly. Mushrooms like cordyceps, lion’s mane, and reishi help reduce stress and are all included in the IMMUNITY blend.
5. Eat A Balanced Healthy Diet
Filling your body with junk food isn’t going to help it build a healthy line of defense. Aim for a balanced diet with plenty of protein, fruits, and vegetables. Vitamin C-rich foods are known to give immune systems a natural boost. You can also focus on foods rich in antioxidants to flush out toxins. Medicinal mushrooms like Chaga, Shiitake, and Turkey Tail are great for the immune system, but you might not eat enough of these daily or weekly to get the maximum benefits; you can take them as a supplement with our IMMUNITY blend.
Consistency is the key to success when it comes to maintaining a healthy immune system. Find routines that can help you rest when needed, keep up with daily exercise, and reduce stress in your life. All of these tips working together should help you reduce downtime with illness.
