The Role of Nutrition in the Immune System

During autumn and winter, the cold and flu season, as well as the current Covid-19 pandemic, people are increasingly looking for food and supplements that improve their immune system.

In reality, the human body is daily exposed to stimuli, namely viruses and bacteria, air pollution and soils that can compromise health and well-being, thus contributing to a risk of infections or even diseases.

Still, the immune system is our body's natural defense against pathogens. It’s quite complex system and involves many organs and functions, being influenced not only by a specific food or nutrient, but also by a variety of macro and micronutrients. And yet, other parameters related to lifestyle, sleep, exercise and stress levels.

For our immune system to function properly it’s important that the first line of defense is a healthy lifestyle, which includes:

• Adequate intake of micronutrients, namely Vitamins A, C, D and E, Zinc and Iron;
• Maintaining a healthy weight;
• Avoid sugars and refined flours;
• Don’t smoke;
• Practicing regular physical exercise;
• Sleep at least 7/8 hours a day;
• Try to minimize stress;
• Adjusted consumption of probiotics;
• Adequate intake of Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids,
• Good fluid intake

Supplementation also plays an important role in strengthening the immune system, as it can complement some nutritional deficiencies, due to our lifestyle. Rocksprint has different solutions that can help you, namely the Immunity Pack, composed of Vitamin C, Vitamin D3 and Omega 369.

In short, a balanced and conscious diet, together with regular physical exercise and adequate sleep, are the basic tools for a healthier life, with an immune system that performs its respective functions with excellence.
