Boost your immune system during the COVID-19 pandemic

COVID-19 has left the world in a state of uncertainty. Since its initial outbreak, many have voiced various precautionary measures that will help combat the spread of the virus. From coughing into a flexed hand to social distancing and regularly disinfecting our hands, we have heard and done it all. But have you been protecting and boosting your immune system too?

Don’t forget about your immune system

In order for us to continue flattening the curve, it is important that we continue to practice the precautionary measures outlined by both the Government and W.H.O. While these measures have been enforced to stop the spread of the virus, many have been left questioning what happens in the event that they do contract COVID-19?

As a result, people have been flooding the internet with search results for the best ways to boost their immune systems against COVID-19. Thankfully the internet is full of answers – some true and reliable, others not.

In order to save you from spiralling down the internet wormhole and stumbling onto fake news (which there is plenty of), we thought we would let you in on the best kept immune boosting secrets around!

What is immunity?

Given the rapid pace at which this virus is spread and the current lack of a vaccine, our bodies need us now more than ever. Now is the time to give our bodies all that they need to fight off infection! How do we do this? By boosting our immune systems.

Your immune system is a complex collection of cells, chemicals and processes that help defend your body against any pathogens. These pathogens include various toxins, viruses and bacteria. Your immune system, therefore, fights these foreign and harmful invaders to ensure that you remain healthy.

Our immune systems are incredibly resilient but that doesn’t mean that they can’t be worn down. Unhealthy eating, a lack of exercise, constant stress and excessive smoking all contribute to a weakened immune system. This ultimately prevents your body from effectively fighting off harmful viruses and bacteria. As a result, you will become more susceptible to contracting illnesses and experiencing complications due to a dysfunctional immune system.

With COVID-19 running rampant, it is important that you support your immune system during this pandemic. This can be done by making key tweaks to your actions, thoughts and habits. This starts with boosting your daily vitamin intake!

Immunity boosting vitamins that you should be taking

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is the most-searched vitamin and it is for good reason. This vitamin is one of the most popular ways to protect yourself against infection. Medical practitioners across the globe have been actively using – and promoting – this vitamin in the fight against COVID-19. And here’s why:

  • This vitamin supports the function of various immune cells
  • Vitamin C enhances your immune system’s ability to protect against infection
  • It helps clear out old cells and replaces them with new ones
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Reduces the severity of upper respiratory tract infections (COVID-19’s a respiratory infection)

Vitamin B

Vitamin B plays a role in many crucial bodily processes and is therefore used to keeps your immune system in the best condition. The Vitamin-B complex range boasts the following benefits:

  • Increases the immune system’s ability to fight off infection
  • Help convert food into energy, that is immediately used by your immune system
  • Reduces tiredness and fatigue
  • Promotes efficient nervous system functioning
  • Keeps nerve cells healthy

Vitamin D

 

Maintaining adequate amounts of Vitamin D in your body is vital! Particularly during this time of self-quarantining where the vast majority of us spend our time indoors. Spending a little time outside in the sunshine will:

  • Enhance the pathogen fighting effects of macrophages and monocytes — the white blood cells that are an important part of your immune defence
  • Protect against respiratory tract infections through various anti-inflammatory properties
  • Improve immune response
  • Increase the number of fat-soluble nutrients essential to the overall functioning and health of your immune system
