If you commonly believe that to keep yourselves away from catching a cold is best to keep clean and stay away from sneezy people, get that thought over. You are not that unprotected.
God has created us well enough that he kindly set up the immune system into our body. We all have this little guardian inside. As long as you give it a good care, it will give you back a better work in fighting against those viruses and bacteria that cause diseases.
To keep your immune system stronger, absolutely you have to put some works. Exercise regularly. Maintain a healthy weight. And importantly, eat healthy.
It is 4CARE’s core belief that good health starts from a good diet strategy. A well-balanced, nutrient rich and fiber rich diet is a key to help boost immune system. Apart from enough vitamins and minerals that are commonly known as immune boosters, dietary fiber found in fruits and vegetables are very important.
Many researchers have found that dietary fiber can play a vital role in boosting immune system.
To be more specific, fiber can be categorized into two types; insoluble fiber and soluble fiber.
Insoluble fiber is found in seeds, skin of fruits and bran layers of cereal grains such as wheat germ and brown rice germ. As it is insoluble, meaning it doesn’t absorb water, insoluble fiber can help controlling weight by fulfilling hunger. And, it also helps protect constipation as it helps get things in your bowel moves.
Soluble fiber, on the contrary, does absorb water. It is found rich in oats, nuts, fruits and vegetables such as oranges, apples and carrots. Studies have found that this type of fiber helps fight against inflammation; making us recover faster from infection. It also helps boost immune system effectively. Here is how it works. Soluble fiber can pass through our large intestine undigested. It serves as good food for the friendly bacteria there, helps them grow and fight against the unfriendly ones. Our bodies as a result have a stronger immune system.
