Hemp for Boosting Your Immune System Against Viruses
Your immune system plays a pivotal role in your overall health as it protects your body from harmful infections and viruses. It creates, stores and distributes your body’s white blood cells which fight the bacteria and viruses that attack it. Therefore, it is imperative that your immune system is at its peak when there is a new pandemic or pathogens around you. At this time, your body is at its most vulnerable.
When your immunity is low, your body is not internally geared to battling this new threat which means bacteria, viruses and pathogens could attack your body without a strong barrier to fight them.
The immune system is a complex network of tissues and cells that are constantly alert and ready to fight these foreign bodies. A healthy immune system is capable of distinguishing our tissue from foreign bodies. As well as launching complex attacks against harmful entities, the immune system clears out the trash.
The immune system generally gets stronger as we mature although it weakens again as we grow older. The vast majority of people are born with ‘innate’ immunity, but we also benefit from ‘adaptive’ immunity as we go through life. When we are exposed to diseases or receive vaccinations, the library of antibodies against differing pathogens grows.
There are plenty of ‘natural’ ways to improve the immune system. Eat a healthy and balanced diet with lots of fruit and vegetables and increase your protein intake. Adults should get at least seven hours of good quality restorative sleep a night. Exercise also helps because it lowers blood pressure and keeps your weight under control. Avoid junk foods and toxins that reduce your bodies ability to clear wastes and keep your heart performing optimally.
Aside from these steps, studies have shown that consuming Hemp Hearts or Hemp Protein powder is a natural way in building and maintaining your immunity. It contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 which help in reducing inflammation and also has high levels of magnesium and Vitamin E that helps fight viruses. Stay safe, happy & healthy with India Hemp & Co.
