Ways to Boost Your Body's Natural Defenses

With the health crisis we are facing right now, what we can only do is to protect ourselves against the spreading virus. Aside from maintaining social distancing, practicing hand washing and wearing mask, it's also important to strengthen our immune system. 

Ways to Boost Your Immunity

Here are some tips on strengthening your immunity

The summer of 2020 will always be remembered as the time when we stayed at home. Things are different in our new normal and we struggle while looking forward to what's ahead. As we now turn our attention toward making good health a new way of life, you can count on Watsons to be with you every step of the way. Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on what you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy. 

Physical activity of at least 30 minutes a day has immediate and long-term health benefits. It reduces our risk of cardiovascular diseases, helps us have stronger bones, muscles and joints and lowers the risk of us developing osteoporosis. If you have an indoor cycling bike, you can hop on that after a few stretching exercises or you could involve the whole family in a simple cardio workout.

Eat right
Eating right does not mean dieting. Focusing on nutrient-rich foods to boost our immune system is part of our new normal. Sweet potatoes, spinach, carrots, mango, broccoli tomatoes, citrus fruits, berries, melons, tomatoes, bell peppers and broccoli are only some of the foods that we should incorporate in our diet in order to stay healthy. One thing I make sure to drink every day is Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea because tea is an antioxidant.

Get quality sleep
The daily recommended amount for sleep is seven to nine hours for adults and eight to 14 hours for children. It is so easy to stay awake binge-watching our favorite shows or scrolling through our gadgets all night but sleeping well helps keep your immune system in fighting shape.

Take vitamins regularly
Your body needs a completely balanced diet for it to get all the vitamins and minerals that it needs to function everyday and defend it against illnesses. Vitamins serve as a bridge so that your body gets the nutrients that it needs. Vitamin C, for instance, is believed to increase the production of white blood cells, which are important in fighting infections. Pro tip: Stock up on your supply with Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid.

Vitamin C isn’t the only vitamin that can keep you healthy. Enervon Activ Soft Gel helps boost immunity and promotes healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich with Vitamin E to help fight cell damage. For the kids, let’s help support their growth not just in height but in strength with Growee Syrup or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules. 

Top up with supplements
Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. They also have antioxidants that can do a lot of good for your mind and body. They can include supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen and Organique Acai Juice. You can also keep your defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen.

Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for any health emergency. These include Lola Remedios, Strepsils, and Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, know that you can count on these items being available at Watsons.
