HOW TO STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

In the face of this terrible pandemic that is destroying many lives, we ask ourselves, what can I do to help my body fight this virus?

In this post I am going to explain what you should do so that your immune system is ready.

The first thing is to explain what the immune system is:

Faced with an infection of any kind, our body is equipped with defense systems capable of protecting us against multiple daily attacks by bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms capable of causing damage to our body.

Our immune system is made up of several mechanisms, which are activated in the face of any threat.

Faced with a foreign substance, the body's defense mechanisms are activated, the first line of defense is found in the skin, the mucosa, the gastric juice, but if the invasive agent manages to cross these natural barriers, they encounter the white blood cells that are we are going to say so the police officers of our body.

As you can see, the immune system is complex and needs excellent coordination and strength to be able to protect you.

But first we are going to talk about what situations or causes weaken the immune system:

  • In the first place, the diet, an unbalanced diet, without an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals, amino acids... in short, a diet poor in fruits and vegetables, and based on sugar and ultra-processed food, is going to be a major cause of a weakened immune system. .
  • Another important factor is stress, capable of weakening the immune system.

Why is this important?

Let's see or understand what a virus is and how it works:

how to boost the immune system

A virus is an acellular form with loose genetic material inside, incapable of reproducing, for this it needs a cell with molecular machinery to replicate, for this reason it will invade our cells, its objective is to reach the nucleus of the cell, inject its material genetic inside and force the cell to replicate it, once the copies are generated, they leave the cell that ends up dying and when the new copies of the virus come out, they are directed to infect other cells and so on.

As we can see, our defenses have to prevent the virus from entering our body and therefore prevent its entry into our cells, it seems easy, but it is a job that requires a lot of energy and effort, for this the immune system has to be in perfect condition.

How or what should we do to help our IS?

The most important thing is a proper diet, increasing the intake of fruits and vegetables, legumes, fish, in short, a healthy diet and the Mediterranean diet is one of the best in the world for this purpose.

Fast foods, ultra-processed foods, and excessive consumption of sugars, alcohol, and tobacco must be avoided, as indicated above.

It is very important to practice sports, physical exercise is essential for optimal health.

Another way to help our immune system are nutritional supplements.

The most important are:

-Vitamin C:

It stimulates the production of white blood cells that we already said before are our soldiers.

-Vitamin D:

It is a hormonal factor that controls the immune system, it is immunomodulatory which makes this vitamin essential for the proper functioning of our immune system.

-Essential fatty acids :

cell membranes are made up of lipids, hence the importance of providing these fatty acids and here we find, for example, Omega 3.

-Probiotics

Preventing the growth of harmful microorganisms, they help the assimilation of nutrients and in general they will support the proper functioning of the immune system.

-Zinc

It increases the production of T lymphocytes, other cells of the immune system without forgetting that it participates in hundreds of enzymatic reactions.

-Vitamin A:

It is necessary to maintain the functional structure of the respiratory system.

I am talking about these supplements because they are the ones that have shown the best results when it comes to strengthening the immune system, they are easy to find and are accessible to all of us.
