How to Feed a Healthy Immune System
A strong immunity system is essential to staying healthy.
Lucky for us, we can boost ours by taking basic steps in a healthy lifestyle. Those include exercising regularly; limiting our alcohol; avoiding too much sun; losing extra weight; and not smoking.
The disease-fighting benefits come from maintaining healthy habits over a period of time. A glass of OJ this morning isn’t going to jumpstart your immune system into the stratosphere by the afternoon but, a good breakfast is a great way to start the day.
An immune-healthy diet includes a rich range of food choices. In fact, that variety is part of what makes it so effective – including fruits and vegetables of every color. So, load up with all the colors of the rainbow.
