Vitamin C Will See You Through
A study of 11 306 people found that taking 1000 - 2000 mg of vitamin C per day can prevent and treat the common cold.
Foods containing vitamin C include broccoli, kale, strawberries, tomatoes, and green pepper. It might be worth your while to take a vitamin C supplement if you don't eat enough food that's high in it.
Keep Calm, And Take A Collagen Supplement
There are many benefits to taking a collagen supplement, with immune system booster being one of them.
Thanks to the significant amounts of the amino acid proline found in our pure, hydrolysed collagen powder, taking it on a regular basis can improve your general health and give your immune system a boost. Having a healthy body (and mind) and a strong immune system, makes it easier for you to fight off infections, viruses and disease.
Water, Water Everywhere
Although drinking water doesn't give your immune system a boost, there are some studies that suggest drinking hot water might help fight off diseases and help you recover from viruses and infections.
Also, being dehydrated compromises your immune system, making you vulnerable to possible infection.
Try to get into the habit of drinking water throughout the day, by either taking regular breaks to drink water or keeping water by your desk or work station.
Sleeping well is one of the greatest gifts you can give your overall health, mental and physical.
Getting adequate sleep can boost your immune system, and prevent you from getting ill on a regular basis.
The World Health Organisation suggests that adults get about 7-9 of hours sleep a night. Babies, young children, and teens should get way more sleep, and the WHO has special sleep guidelines for most age categories.
To get better sleep, and stay healthy, limit your screen time before bed, ensure that you have a regular sleep routine like going to bed at the same time every night and make sure the room you're sleeping in is dark or you wear an eye mask.
