As we approach flu season in what has already been an unprecedented year, one thing is for sure: immune health is on Americans’ minds more than ever before.
We’ve seen a sharp increase in conversations around the best ways to maintain a strong immune system, and health experts across the board agree that diet and lifestyle choices can dramatically impact individuals’ ability to fight harmful pathogens. Here at That’s it., we know a thing or two about wellness, so we want to share a few of our top immunity-boosting tips to keep in mind as we enter flu season:
- Get enough sleep (That means seven or more hours a night for adults .)
- Eat a diet full of fruits and vegetables
- Manage stress (We know – easier said than done in 2020!)
- Get regular exercise (Experts recommend at least 150 minutes per week .)
- Add probiotics into your daily diet
Probiotics are celebrated as a champion of immunity due to their positive impact on gut health. Known for supporting gut health and overall immunity by lining the gut with a layer of friendly bacteria, probiotics also aid the absorption of nutrients, muscle function and disease prevention. Regular consumption of probiotics has been linked to a decrease in likeliness of getting sick, and to a reduction in the duration when you do get sick. They’ve even been known to positively impact mental health, mood, and overall wellbeing.
