How to boost your immunity at home during the COVID-19 pandemic (and even there isn't one)

You cannot turn anywhere right now without seeing news about the COVID-19 global pandemic and the impact it is.

A popular question often asked is whether there is anything that people can do or if there is no hope until vaccines are available.

One key way that many people overlook is to generally boost your immunity by taking simple steps and given the stakes, what do you have to lose?

Your immune system consists of a complex collection of cells, processes, and chemicals that constantly defends your body against invading pathogens, including viruses, toxins, and bacteria.

Keeping your immune system healthy year-round is key to preventing infection and disease. Making healthy lifestyle choices by consuming nutritious foods and getting enough sleep and exercise are the most important ways to bolster your immune system.

In addition, research has shown that supplementing with certain vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other substances can improve immune response and potentially protect against illness.

However, note that some supplements can interact with prescription or over-the-counter medications you’re taking. Some may not be appropriate for people with certain health conditions. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider before starting any supplements.
