Winter Care for the Body
Supplements that help boost immunity
Winters are here with their chilly winds and low temperatures. While winters are great for feasting, festivities and celebrations, these also bring in challenges for your health as you are more prone to catching infections like flu and colds. Plus, lack of sunshine and shorter days can upset your body clock and that can cause seasonal blues as well as weaken immunity.
In short, winters need you to undertake some extra self-care, especially to keep the blues away and to keep the immunity strong.
Here are some simple and easy ways to ensure a healthy winter.
We know that cold weather means less thirst but don’t let that make you drink less water. A dehydrated body has lower immunity. A hydrated body has better digestion too. So, drink up your 8 glasses of water on daily basis.
Wear layers of clothing to stay warm
You can’t afford to let your body lose its heat. To stay warm, wear clothing in multiple layers as opposed to wearing one thick garment. This provides better insulation from cold. Be sure to wear absorbent cotton in the innermost, next-to-skin layer. This will help absorb the moisture that will also keep the skin safe from any fungal infections.
Exposure to sunlight not only warms your body in cold weather, it also helps regulate your body clock, boosts mood, and helps the body produce Vitamin D which is vital for bones, muscles and immune response. Get your sunlight exposure for at least 30 minutes on daily basis.
Malnourished people usually show low immunity and are more prone to infectious diseases. To keep your immunity shipshape in winters, consume nutritious and balanced diet high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and seeds. This diet ensures plenty of micronutrients i.e. vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. Please remember that diet deficient in zinc, copper, iron, selenium, folic acid and vitamins A, B6, C, & E, may affect your body’s immune response adversely.
Winters are activity-friendly as a weather. You can walk, cycle, do chores, and take stairs without getting all hot and sweaty. Exercising in cold water increases endurance, burns more fat, and keeps moody blues away. Stay active, it is good for you.
Take immunity boosting supplements
As we said earlier, nutritional deficiencies can weaken immunity. Your regular diet may not be enough to provide enough nutrition to meet your winter health needs. This shortfall can be met by consuming select supplements such as extra virgin coconut oil (EVCO), omega 3 fatty acids, a multivitamin with minerals, and immunity booster containing fruit and vegetable extracts, that can help your body fill its nutritional gaps and thereby support healthy immune response.
