    With summer winding down and kids heading back to school, there is no better time than now to make immune system support a part of your everyday routine. Germs are inevitable, but with proper hygiene, nutrition, and immune supporting supplements, you can keep your household healthy through the fall.

    5 Ways to Support Your Immune System

    Eat a Balanced Diet

    Micronutrients (antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals) and macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates, and fats) are essential for the health of your immune system and must be acquired through your diet.

    A balanced diet consists of lean protein (think chicken, eggs, dairy, beef, fish, and soy), complex carbohydrates (whole grains, potatoes, legumes, beans, fruits, and vegetables), and healthy fats (avocado, healthy oils, nuts and seeds, and low-fat dairy like cheese). Filling your plate with nutrient-dense foods helps ensure you are getting enough calories, vitamins, minerals, and other important nutrients throughout the day.

    Use the 1/3rd rule when serving meals and snacks – fill 1/3rd of your plate with protein, 1/3rd with carbohydrates, and the remaining 1/3rd with fruits and/or vegetables. This is a great way to build a balanced plate.

    Practice Healthy Hygiene

    Handwashing is an underrated tool for washing away germs and helping maintain a healthy immune system. Make it a point to wash your hands before and after you use the bathroom, eat a meal, touch surfaces that may have germs on them, and when you sneeze, cough, or blow your nose.

    Running your hands under water just is not enough. Remember to use an antibacterial hand soap or sanitizer. Rub your hands together for at least 20 seconds – hum your favorite tune as a timer – then rinse and dry well.
