1. Fuel up on vitamins
It is often said by our grandmothers that fruit containing vitamin C supports the body’s defenses and can shorten the duration of a cold. Additionally, Lifebars are packed with natural vitamins similar to fresh fruit and are easy for the body to process.
Also, vitamin D is naturally replenished when you expose your skin to sunlight.
2. Keep yourself cool while exercising
Get outdoors! Fresh air and sunlight along with physical activity is a prerequisite for a strong and properly functioning immune system. Like plants, hardening off into outdoor conditions is one of the most effective ways to boost your immune system. To harden off correctly, it must be done gradually and regularly.
For example, the Finnish sauna or the trendy new cryosauna are suitable methods to harden the body. Alternatives could be as simple as being under freezing water for as little as a minute or two every day.
3. Get enough sleep
Sleeping enough rests and regenerates your body properly and allows it to function as it should. Sleeping less than about 8 hours a night directly negatively affects your body and immune system. This results in being more susceptible to frequent colds, flus, and other illnesses
4. Increasing antioxidants
Antioxidants protect your body’s cells from pollutants in the environment, stressors, and other elements associated with an unhealthy or less then optimal lifestyle.
The beetroot Lifebar contains 4800 units of antioxidant activity, which covers the recommended daily dose. In addition, blueberries are packed with antioxidants and prevent infections as well as high cocoa dark chocolate!
5. Protect yourself with the power of nature
Nature has gifted us with an abundance of treasures. Superfoods got their name for a reason. For example, the Superfood Maca helps restore hormonal balance, Chorelle cleanses and supports the cardiovascular system, and Garlic, Tumeric, Ginger, and Olives are also natural “antivirals”!
6. Limit simple sugars in your diet
Simple sugars prevent white blood cells from destroying bacteria. Good news! You won’t find a single pinch of simple sugar in Lifefood products!
7. Don't stress!
When we are stressed or experiencing anxiety, the immune system is crippled by cortisol which reduces the number of white blood cells that fight bacteria and viruses. Breathing is a great source for acute stress reduction. Ideally outdoors, take in the fresh air, 10 really deep breaths into your abdomen. Then hold your breath as much as you can. You'll feel the relief right away. You can, of course, repeat the process several times a day.
