As the Wuhan pneumonia epidemic continues to update, many people have recently asked me: “How to improve immunity and resistance?”
The immune system is like the body’s umbrella and defense. The most fundamental thing is that the daily diet must be closely related to the improvement of immunity and resistance!
In addition, to resist the invasion of viruses and bacteria, it is very important to consume enough nutrients!
In such a busy daily life of modern people, in addition to food and diet, moderate supplements through supplements such as health foods and vitamins can also strengthen and regulate our immune system~
Today, let me spend 5 minutes to share with you, what is the difference between immunity and resistance, how to improve and adjust immunity, increase resistance to diet recommendations, increase immunity to vitamin recommendations, adjust immunity to healthy food, etc. , Let you master all the keys at once!
Actually, “immunity” does not mean “resistance”. They are different.
When I see this title, I believe that many people will feel confused, what is the difference between resistance and immunity! Don’t everyone say that?
To put it simply, the main reason is that immunity is official medicine, while resistance is more like a folk name.
What is immunity?
In medicine, it refers to the body’s ability to fight disease, and the immune function needs to be maintained at a moderately stable level for the healthiest.
The too strong or weak immune system will cause harm to the human body.
So you may have heard that because the immune function is so strong that it makes an excessive response to foreign antigens, which leads to the distinction between the enemy and the enemy, resulting in a disorder of the autoimmune system.
The most commonly heard rheumatoid arthritis is one of them. A typical example.
Improving the body’s resistance to disease can help reduce the susceptibility to disease. For immunity, adjusting immunity is far more important and scientific than pursuing increased immunity.
What is resistance?
It is a popular folk saying because not everyone has the concept of the immune system or virus bacteria, so it is customary to use resistance to express your body’s ability to fight diseases.
Therefore, the expression of resistance will be less formal, the immune system is well regulated, and the natural body will have good resistance to the invasion of external bacteria.
After understanding the concept of difference, I will make a presentation in the form of immunity/resistance next, so that everyone can quickly understand how to improve and increase the method of enhancing immunity/resistance, diet, health food, vitamin-related supplements, and recommendations. ~
10 recommended methods to quickly improve and increase immunity/resistance
- Good self-discipline
- Eat a balanced diet and pay attention to nutritional intake
- Keep the living environment clean and tidy
- Not too protective helps exercise immune function
- Correct use of drugs without abuse of drugs
- Keep your body warm and help blood circulation
- Maintain stable emotions and moderate stress relief
- Get enough sleep to have good energy
- Regular exercise to improve cardiopulmonary function
- Moderate supplementation of health food vitamin maintenance
Next, I will separately pull out diets, health foods, and vitamin recommended supplements that help to quickly improve regulation and increase immunity/resistance to share in more detail~
What can I eat to increase immunity/resistance?
1: High-quality protein intake (protein is the main component of e.g white blood cells and antibodies that make up cells)
Animal protein: beef, pork, chicken, lamb, fish… and so on.
Vegetable protein: beans, tofu, soy milk, soy products…etc.
2: Lemon, guava, grapefruit…etc (fruit rich in vitamin C)
Eating more fruits rich in vitamin C has many benefits because vitamin C has a high antioxidant capacity, plus it helps stimulate the body to produce interferon to destroy the virus, and it has physiological effects on the regulation of the immune system.
3: Garlic (rich in allicin to sterilize)
There are many benefits to eating garlic, and the most worth mentioning ingredient is allicin. The study pointed out that allicin has the effect of sterilizing and reducing infections. It can also prevent colds and resist germs.
4: Ginger (rich in gingerol can promote blood circulation)
Ginger contains shogaol which can promote blood circulation. Good metabolic circulation is very important for health. At the same time, ginger also has antioxidant, antibacterial, and detoxifying effects, which is very helpful to enhance immunity.
5: Grain and whole grain products
You can eat 1 bowl of five-grain rice or multi-grain bread or whole wheat products every day because these unrefined foods are rich in vitamin B group and various minerals, which help supply cells for proliferation, oxidation, and reduction.
Especially B2, B5, B6, and folic acid, they have a relevant role in maintaining cell mucosal health and the production of antibodies and other immune functions.
6: Balanced intake of dark and various vegetables
The phytochemicals in vegetables have a protective effect on the human body, so it is recommended to eat at least 2 to 3 bowls of various vegetables every day, which are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals are closely related to immune function!
In terms of dark green vegetables e.g. spinach, broccoli, etc., the nutrients are rich and rich. There are vitamin A, vitamin B group, vitamin C, vitamin E, and various minerals to provide the necessary nutrients for the normal functioning of the immune system.
And red, orange or yellow vegetables e.g carrots, bell peppers, pumpkins, sweet potatoes…etc., this kind of vegetables contain a lot of β-carotene, which will also be converted into substances important for improving immunity after entering the body.
7: Berry (e.g. blueberry, cranberry)
For blueberries, the rich anthocyanins are a type of flavonoid. Flavonoids play an important role in the immune system of the respiratory tract. People who often eat foods rich in flavonoids are less likely to get colds and other upper respiratory tract diseases.
For cranberry, rich in vitamin C, vitamin E and polyphenols, anthocyanins and other antioxidants can increase antibodies and improve immunity.
Vitamin 4 recommended ingredients
Modern people have a busy life rhythm. Most foreign foods have to balance the diet and food supplements to increase the strength and mediate immunity/resistance. Indeed, there will be certain difficulties.
So if you have a budget, it is also a very convenient and efficient way to supplement with moderate supplements and vitamins~
1: Vitamin/Vitamin B Group
The vitamin/vitamin group helps to improve human metabolism, and among them, vitamin/vitamin B2, vitamin/vitamin B5, and vitamin/vitamin B6, and folic acid (vitamin/vitamin B9) can all help maintain the health of cell mucosa and make antibodies… etc. Waiting for the adjustment/increase of the immune system is very helpful.
There are many high-dose vitamin/vitamin B groups in the market. There are many brands available in the market.
The natural selection of raw materials is recommended when choosing. There are supplements (eg zinc, iron, vitamin C, maca… etc.), which can be achieved at the same time. Demand for high absorption without irritation, the complementary success of formulas.
2: Vitamin/Vitamin C
Vitamin C has a high degree of antioxidant power, plus it helps stimulate the body to produce interferon to destroy the virus, and it has physiological effects on the regulation of the immune system.
There are many high-dose vitamin/vitamin C products on the market. It is better to choose natural extraction ingredients when choosing (eg West Indian cherry powder whose vitamin C content is 26 times higher than lemon).
Natural extraction has a higher absorption rate than chemical synthesis. It is also gentle and not irritating, so adults and children can feel at ease when they eat it~
Probiotics are supplemented in moderation, and good bacteria are in the intestine, which helps to adjust and improve the health and function of the gastrointestinal tract.
In the selection of probiotics, it is recommended that you can select strains/strains with allergic constitution improvement (eg Lp28 strain research has proven to help improve allergic constitution) to achieve a variety of adjustments, both for immune system regulation and resistance increase Bring positive benefits.
4: Omega-3 (DHA, EPA)
Supplementing Omega-3 (DHA, EPA) helps reduce the “chronic inflammation” in the body, so that immune cells will not be overworked and unbalanced, so moderate supplementation is very helpful for the regulation of the immune system.
Algae oil and fish oil can be added to Omega-3 (DHA, EPA), and algae oil is simply a vegetarian fish oil, which can effectively avoid heavy metal pollution and is a popular new choice for modern people under environmental protection and green energy.
The above is I would like to share with you the dietary recommendations for increasing immunity, the vitamin recommendations for increasing immunity, and the sharing of health food ingredients related to immune regulation~
Finally, don’t forget to remind everyone that in this special period of Wuhan pneumonia, wash your hands frequently, wear masks correctly, and establish the concepts of daily rest, diet, health food and vitamins as described above. I believe we can work together through this extraordinary period of health.
