5 things that can affect your immune system

Let’s strengthen our immune system with these FIVE easy steps!

1.Say NO to processed foods

Processed foods contain dangerous chemicals that can weaken and ‘alter’ the good bacteria in your gut, leaving room for bad bacteria to come in, and weaken your intestinal immune system. So avoid them as much as you can. 

2.Get good quality sleep

According to immunologist Kathleen Dass, MD, assistant clinical professor at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine and founder of the Michigan Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Center, “When you’re sleeping, your body releases cytokines, proteins that protect you against inflammation and infection. Without adequate rest, you can’t produce as many cytokines and will have a harder time fighting viral and bacterial illness.”

3.Workout

4.Quit smoking

Seriously, do we have to explain why smoking is bad for your health? 

5.Limit your alcohol intake

Well, if possible, try quitting altogether, but we do understand that it’s hard. So limit your alcohol intake as much as possible. Drinking alcohol can irritate your liver and affect your immune system!
