Steering clear of processed food and eating a nutritious and wholesome diet can help strengthen your immunity. Cooking your meals at home gives you control over how your food is made, what is going into it, and how much you eat.
Celeb nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar suggests you pick traditional recipes and cooking methods like our ancestors used to as they are backed by a lot of nutritional science. Include whole grains, millets, pulses, legumes, nuts, seeds, yoghurt, colourful fruits and vegetables, spices and herbs in your daily diet.
Keep your body hydrated by drinking fresh fruit or vegetable juices and soups, among other drinks. Water flushes out toxins from our body and helps prevent a negative impact on our immune system.
Begin your day with breathing exercises as they help calm your mind and support your immune system. Sports nutritionist Ekansh Taneja believes that exercising helps boost metabolism and ensures better sleep, which eventually strengthens the immune system.
A regulated circadian rhythm (an internal process that regulates the sleep-wake cycle) goes a long way in keeping immunity in check. So, sleep and wake up on time. Give yourself at least six hours of sleep every night.
Food that we eat may not be able to provide us with the amount of vitamins and nutrients we need on a daily basis. A regular dose of multivitamins goes a long way but take them only after consulting a medical or nutrition professional.
