4 ways to help your immunity.
This article is not specific to the coronavirus, it simply aims to promote healthy immunity, to prevent disease. These are just suggestions to help you see your health more generally.
It is not always possible to avoid pathologies, but we have the scientific notions to promote better immunity.
The presence of long-term stress increases the inflammatory field, which unbalances the functions of the cell and also, the roles of immunity.
The chronicity of stress increases the secretion of cytokines by several cells of immunity such as dendritic cells, macrophages, neutrophils ... Which inevitably increases the inflammatory field. The presence of long-term stress therefore creates an imbalance in terms of cell functions, but also in terms of the immune system.
It is clear that the lack of sleep caused by stress is a big problem in our fast-paced society. Lack of sleep is linked to a loss of cognitive function, a decline in mood, an increase in cardiovascular disease and more.
Taking fermented foods and probiotics
Intestinal dysbiosis could influence the presence of certain pathologies such as psoriasis, arthritis or inflammatory bowel disease.
In addition, an imbalance in the microbiome of the lungs or the gastrointestinal system would be associated with pulmonary disorders such as asthma, allergy or even chronic lung disease.
To know that each person is different with a biochemical individuality and that each bacterial strain is not effective for all. Ask your healthcare professionals.
Have a complete diet
You will not be surprised if I tell you to eat vegetables!
But why exactly? Because they are rich in fiber and can nourish your microbiome. Because they contain phyto-nutrients with multiple benefits for the body. They contain several micro-nutrients essential for the proper functioning of the body's metabolism.
Favor complex sugars to simple sugars.
Sugar would decrease the activity of certain cells of immunity without necessarily decreasing their numbers. It would lower the activity of neutrophils by 50% in the phagocytosis (phago; eating - cyte; cell) of bacteria.
Take bioactive compounds.
Vitamin C has the potential to increase the activity of killer cells specifically designed to understand viruses in the cell. In addition, it promotes the activity of T and B immune cells involved in immune memory and in the production of antibodies.
Zinc is involved in cell-mediated immunity. When used preventively, it could reduce the risk of infections, diarrhea or even lung problems.
he immunity modulator! Did you know that it was not a vitamin, but a signaling hormone? And yes, we discover it every day!
It would have the role of regulating the expression of T cells and the production of cytokines. In addition, it would promote the secretion of antimicrobial peptides.
In addition, its concentration seems to decrease with age.
What I am describing here is the fruit of epigenetics, that is to say; how the environment naturally changes the expression of your genes. Remember that you have the power to influence your vitality, do not give your power to someone else, trust yourself and inform yourself in a global way.
