Healthy ways to Strenghten your Immune System:

Mostly your immune system does a remarkable job from defending you against disease causing micro-organisms. But sometimes a germ invades successfully and makes you sick. Although there are no scientifically proven direct links to boost your immune system, every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected and bolstered by healthy-living strategies such as these:

  • Don't smoke.

  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.

  • Maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly.

  • Get adequate sleep.

  • Try to minimize stress.

  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently.
