Keeping Healthy and Improving Immunity While Stuck Inside

Due to the recent incidences involving the Corona Virus (COVID-19), people have been quarantining and self-isolating to prevent themselves and their families from receiving or transmitting the virus. When it comes to the body, a sedentary lifestyle and improper nutritional intake can affect the body’s natural ability to fight disease and infection. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition, and implementing supplementation can help improve immunity and help aid in the body’s natural defenses against foreign substances. 

Supplements such as nutraceuticals, provide the necessary ingredients to a healthy lifestyle. These products are dietary supplements, compounds, or no drug entities found in food sources that have physiological benefits providing protection against chronic disease. Nutraceuticals are pretty much defined as super foods meant to aid the body in boosting immunity and providing a balanced nutritional diet. 

Many stores carry these supplements such as Whole Foods, Shop Rite, Supplement Stores, and many more, but when it comes to purchasing them it is important to know what to buy. What we look for when buying supplements is to make sure we are getting the active form, because the inactive form has no use in the body. Common supplements are Omega-3 (fish oils), Multi vitamins with Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, Probiotics, and Adaptogens. These products influence the body’s natural ability to fight infection and strengthen immunity. For detailed information on each supplement, keep an eye out for the next blog.
