Corona Second Wave: The second wave of Covid has unleashed ruin in our lives, by and by. The quantity of cases is expanding enormously as time passes, which makes dealing with our resistance of most extreme significance. Remaining at home, not venturing out until earnest, and keeping our insusceptibility up and tight is our smartest option to save ourselves from the destructive Covid.
1. Exercise at home
Exercising regularly plays an important role in keeping your immunity strong. Exercising puts our body under short term stress called eustress, which makes us stronger and more resilient in the long term. Even in the short term, exercise can make your immune cells better at killing pathogens. Aerobic activities like running or swimming, high-intensity exercise and weight lifting have benefits for the immune system.
2. Add antioxidants to your diet
One of the easiest things you can do to boost your immunity is to fill your plate with colourful foods. Colourful foods are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, D, E and A along with zinc and selenium. Antioxidants neutralise free radical damage in our body and cool down inflammation along with repairing the damaged cells and DNA.
3. Add fibre to your diet
The headquarters of our immune system is in our gut and our gut bacteria loves fibre. When we eat fibre, it encourages more diversity in our gut flora, which has been linked to a stronger and more balanced immune system. When we don’t get enough fibre, our body’s ability to fend off infections decreases.
