The short answer is 'that depends’.
There are many theories out there.
One camp believes that a few months of lockdown are unlikely to have dramatic effects on our immune system. While others proclaim that the restrictions imposed during lockdowns mean that we’re not exactly leading a lifestyle that strengthens the immune system.
Here’s our take on the situation.
First and foremost, lockdowns were never meant to impact the immune system. Neither were they aimed at getting people to acquire immunity in the first place.
They’re designed to lengthen the epidemic. And while this may sound counterintuitive, what it really means is that these ensured we had fewer people catching and spreading the virus.
This was ultimately directed towards ‘flattening the curve’ so that our healthcare system won’t get clogged like China, Italy’s Lombardy and New York.
With that being said, it’s also true that eating unhealthy food, not getting enough sunlight or sleep and being under extreme stress during lockdown might weaken your immune system.
But here’s the thing.
Whether you think that the lockdown has weakened your immune system or not, it’s always a good idea to take steps to make sure that your immune system is primed.
Especially now that the lockdown is slowly being lifted and we can resume outdoor activities, you don’t want even the common cold and flu to spoil the fun for you.
A strong immune system has many benefits for your overall health.
It not only fights off bacteria, pathogens and viruses but also helps combat fatigue. It also improves recovery time for injuries and surgeries as well as enhances digestion.
Here are some easy steps to give your immunity the boost it needs.
During sleep, our bodies produce cytokines which are proteins that create an immune response by targeting infections and inflammation. Get at least 7-9 hours of sleep each night to help activate your immune system.
A healthy diet provides vital nutrients that are important to maintain a strong immune system. Try to consume a balanced diet containing whole fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and plenty of water to keep your immune system functioning at its best.
Getting out in the sunshine and exercising is important, as long as social distancing, hand washing and disinfection continues. Doing regular exercise and/or practicing yoga is also a great way to lower your stress levels that can be potentially damaging for your immune system.
In case a balanced diet is not readily accessible, taking a multivitamin such asSash Vitality’s Multivitamin & Minerals Complex Tablets can be a great way to load up on essential vitamins and minerals that can help boost your immune system.
These contain Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin B6 that are considered the best for boosting immunity.
