Covid-19: Taking care of your immune system : 6 natural solutions
This winter has seen the return of viral illnesses and the respiratory problems they create. Why? Abrupt changes in temperature, an unbalanced diet, lack of sleep and viruses that take hold at the first sign of weakness in our bodies. In winter, people are also more likely to congregate in confined spaces, and this encourages the transmission of the virus from one individual to another.
In people with weakened immune systems, a virus takes hold more easily and the body tries to shake it off, causing inflammatory symptoms such as a runny nose, cough, sneezing and sore throat. These hypersecretions are also responsible for the scale and contagiousness of winter epidemics.
In addition to applying some basic rules, such as avoiding contact with these viruses (by washing your hands frequently and avoiding rubbing mucosa), restful sleep and a balanced diet are recommended. At the same time, effective natural solutions are available that help to boost your immune system and take care of your body.
Anastore offers you a special selection of natural supplements that will help strengthen your immune system, to prevent and combat external attacks.
