The fight against Covid-19 is a fight for life. It has been predicted that the virus will be around for a longer period than expected earlier this year. Until now, there’s no certified vaccine nor cure for the virus. However, everyone has an opportunity to prevent him/herself from being infected. Your immune system functions as your defense to protect you from germs like the Coronavirus, a common cold, flu etc. Many times, it prevents us from becoming a prey to these foreign micro organisms. However, sometimes it fails when it becomes weak and allows germs to invade the body to make you sick.
How the Immune System Works
Your immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to defend your body against foreign things like germs, viruses and bacteria. Many people refer to the immune system as the engine house of the body’s defense mechanism.
A healthy immune system protects you by creating a barrier that stops these micro organisms from entering your body. Even if one happens to enter your body, the immune system produces white blood cells and other chemicals that attack and destroy these foreign germs.
If your immune system can’t get rid of the invader before it starts to reproduce, it tries to double up the fight even more to destroy the invaders as they multiply.
In addition to the fight against germs internally, you also benefit from external protection from your skin, saliva and tears. Your skin naturally protect your internal cells, tissues and organs from these invaders.
Your tears does a similar work by removing foreign bodies that tries to enter through the eye. That’s why washing your hands and not touching your face are so important in the fight against Covid-19.
Is it Really Possible to BOOST Your Immunity?
The truth is that, there is no quick fix when it comes to boosting your immunity. The best way to keep your immune system healthy is to subscribe to a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle heavily depends on a healthy nutrition and good exercise. This offers support to your immune system and allows it to get on with it’s job of keeping invaders out.
What is the Role of Vitamin C and Zinc in Preventing COVID-19?
Nutritional compounds like vitamin C, antioxidants and zinc do work with your immune system and help it function more effectively. However, the truth is that if you eat a balanced diet always, you don’t necessarily need to take these supplements.
All you need is to eat well, reduce your intake of highly processed foods, cut down on sugar consumption and increase your intake of vegetables and fruits in your diet plan.
Furthermore, drink enough water and engage in exercise (at least 30min daily) to boost your metabolism. If you enjoy foods known as immune boosters, there’s no harm in eating them as part of a balanced diet they work for you. However don’t assume that’s all you need to do.
Lastly, in this current era of a global pandemic, personal hygiene plays a major role in boosting your immune system as well. Few months back, nobody wears face masks on the street, in the bus or the airplane. You will never see handwashing equipment at the entrance of offices, schools, churches or conference centers. We hug, shake hands and fellowship with our friends and loved ones. Few months on, everything has changed because of the invasion of one invisible and microscopic virus globally.
