Good Evening

There are many things you can do to actively boost your immune system and reduce your chances of illness. Please read on for more information below.
 

Why are organic foods beneficial for the immune system? 
 
Choosing organic is beneficial to the immune system for three reasons: 
 
1.  Initially studies showed an increased immune strength in people consuming an organic diet, but they were unsure of the exact mechanisms. Recently, a scientist discovered that dirt that has been allowed to have normal microbial activity without being affected by pesticides and chemicals contains valuable probiotics that colonise in the digestive tract to regulate the immune system. 

These probiotics have been shown to increase secretory IgA which aids immune function.

They have also been shown to decrease inflammation

2.   Additionally, as we often reference, organic produce has been proven to be much higher in nutrients and minerals, including immune boosting B vitamins, zinc and antioxidants. 

3.  Finally, organic foods are spared from being dosed in immune destroying chemicals. The accumulation of pesticides in the body leads to immune system strain and the development of blood cancers and auto-immune disorders. 
  
Other ways to boost your immune system: 
 

  1. Exercise. Physical exercise can help flush bacteria out of the lungs and airways. It also causes changes in antibodies and white blood cells, the bodies immune system cells. 
  2. Get sun and fresh air. Getting out in the sun boosts your vitamin D, a crucial nutrient for boosting our immune system.  
  3. Sleep. Ideally, you should get 6 – 8 hours sleep per night, according to your bodies needs. Getting less sleep may disrupt your immune system and put you at risk for disease, but sleeping more than that also brings health problems. 
  4.  Soil exposure. As mentioned above, soil contains an abundance of probiotics that are beneficial to our gut health and immune system. The sanitiser society that we live in is dangerous long-term as regular exposure to small amounts of dirt is important for your health. 
  5. Reduce stress. We are living in a very highly strung society at the moment, but the key is to separate yourself from the worry narrative if possible. Try to dedicate 30 minutes per day to whatever you feel you need to work about, and then spend the rest of the time living with conscious gratitude. 
  6. Eat a varied diet packed with organic fruit, veggies, nuts and seeds.
