Boosting Your Immune System
Proper nutrition is the most powerful defense against colds, flu and other viruses. Now is the not the time to let your guard down. Whole food, real food will beat every supplement hands down.
With schools and businesses re-opening, it’s important for you and your entire family to eat a healthy diet. Keep it simple. When choosing healthy foods, ask yourself if it came from a plant or a factory. Processed and sugary foods break down your immune system. Fruits and vegetables, legumes, rice, nuts and seeds boost the immune system.
Exercise is another way to boost your immune system. It does not have to be strenuous; it just needs to be daily. Try to get in at least 30 minutes of some type of exercise every day. Walking, swimming, biking and hiking are all great and can be done while social distancing.
Your health should be your main priority. Holistic Artichoke offers a relaxed, non-intimidating and supportive approach that will help guide you on your journey to a healthier lifestyle. It’s never too late to take that first step!
