Building new immunity cells in the body to ensure a healthier you
Soon we will step out of our homes and will start traveling. And there will be many questions coming to our mind.
Life does not stop, and we need to be at our best health to keep living life non-stop. However, as we keep on the move, we may be able to avoid catching the flu from our coughing seatmate or a sneezing travel companion with these tips I follow.
Let me share how to build strong immunity for traveling in India and abroad.
- Sleep Well
If we do not have a healthy sleep cycle, it is as bad as eating poorly for long durations. Our body needs adequate sleep before, during, and after our travels. For a robust immune system, we need to focus on our sleep. It is one of THE most vital and often neglected aspects of our health. The more exhausted we are the more prone we can be to illness. At least seven hours of sleep are required for supporting the body critical processes in the body. These lead to our body rebuilding and repairing itself while we sleep. (1)
- Drink Water & Eat Well
Balanced meals on the go can be a bit more challenging than cooking and eating at home. Focusing on nutrient heavy meals with leafy greens and proteins, while reducing processed food and sugar goes a long way in building a good immune function. India is mostly warm and humid. Hence, we should be well hydrated before we start our travel and carry a water bottle with us as well. We should ensure our intake contains vitamin C, this builds healthy skin and tissue to resist the entry of bacteria and other germs.
- Move Your Body
When we reach our destination or even during our travel, if possible, we must involve our body in some movement. One does not need to do intense exercise, just some walking or cycling for sightseeing instead of taking a car or taking the stairs instead of the elevator helps. These movements initiate the circulation of the body’s lymphatic system, which in turn helps flush out toxins from the body and allowing the nutrients we are consuming to be put to good use.
- Immunity Building Vitamins & Supplements
Between work and household chores, it may not be always possible to prioritize a balanced diet. Nutrition supplements come in handy in a big way in ensuring complete nutrition, providing the following in your daily intake:
- Protein: it helps in building your immune cells.
- Vitamin A: it regulates the immune system and protects the body, keeping it healthy.
- Vitamin C: it blocks the entry of foreign microbes.
- Vitamin E: it works as an antioxidant, keeping cell membranes healthy which helps keep foreign microbes out.
- VitaminD: it activates and regulates immune function.
