How to Strengthen Your Immune System before Flu Season

How to Strengthen Your Immune System before Flu SeasonIt may be almost time for the dreaded flu season, but fortunately there is still enough time to prepare your immune system. A strong immune system will help you fight off the flu and the common cold, so you can enjoy the winter.


Here are six simple tips for strengthen your immune system before flu season:  

1.        Antioxidants like Bioflavonoids

Your cells have receptor sites that allow toxins and germs into your cells. Bioflavonoids will fill up these cell receptors, so the germs won’t have a way to access your cell. This and other powerful antioxidants can be found in most fruits and vegetables. Usana Essentials are also a great source of antioxidants.


2.        Plenty of Vitamin C

There has been more research on vitamin C and its role in boosting the immune system than any other nutrient. It naturally increases the production of white blood cells and antibodies designed to protect your immune system. Vitamin C also increases interferon, which prevent viruses from entering your cells. Red and green peppers, citrus fruits, strawberries, and cantaloupe are all powerful sources of vitamin C.


3.        Need More Vitamin D

Vitamin D is crucial for strengthening your immune system. Vitamin D deficiency has been directly linked to an increased risk of viral infections and influenza. Most people don’t receive enough vitamin D from the sun during the winter, which is why it is important to take a vitamin D supplement.


4.        Vitamin E Supplements

Vitamin E supplements will boost your immune system by increasing the production of germ killing cells. It also increases B cells, which are also responsible for producing antibodies geared at fighting off germs. Studies have shown that vitamin E supplements will reverse some of the immune response decline that comes naturally with age.


5.        Wash Your Hands Regularly

You don’t need to constantly scrub your hands using an antibacterial sanitizer, but washing your hands regularly will decrease your chances of getting the flu. Germs are everywhere and good hygiene is an easy way to stop them from affecting your health.


6.        Dress Appropriately

You won’t catch a cold or the flu simply because you are not dress properly, but colder weather does require that you wear more clothing. Exposure to the cold will suppress your immune system and increase the chance of infection.

All it takes is these six simple precautions and you can drastically reduce your chances of wasting the winter sneezing and coughing in bed. Make sure you are getting enough antioxidants and vitamins, wash your hands regularly, and dress appropriately. If you take a supplement like Usana’s Essentials, it won’t take much effort to fight off the flu.
