6 Tips for Building Immunity

Sunday, May 17, 2020

     This year has brought so many twists and turns that it is only May but we already seem to feel exhausted. But if there is one good thing that is the result of all the developments that have taken place, it is that we have chosen to focus on the things that are really important to us, such as our family and good health. As we now turn our attention toward making good health a new way of life, you can count on Watsons to be with you every step of the way.

    In the next few months, there will be changes in the quarantine guidelines. It will be modified, intensified, or reduced depending on the number of COVID-19 cases and the new normal will take place. Wearing a face mask, social distancing, washing, and sanitizing hands frequently are the first line of defense against the virus but there's a lot more to do especially on building your immunity.  Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on what you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy.

6 Tips for Building Immunity

1. Be Active

     Before COVID-19, many people lived sedentary lifestyles. Now, we realize the importance of physical activity, which helps boost the immune system and improve our wellbeing. Spend 30 minutes everyday to stretch and do some cardio and simple exercises. If you have an indoor cycling bike, you can hop on that after a few stretching exercises or you could involve the whole family in a simple cardio workout.

2. Eat Right

     We eat well in order to make our immune system strong. Five to seven servings of vegetables and fruits daily will help us get much-needed vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. These foods include ginger, broccoli, red bell peppers, yogurt, citrus fruits, carrots, tomatoes, and camote. One thing I make sure to drink every day is Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea because tea is also an antioxidant.

3. Get Quality Sleep

     Lack of sleep weakens the immune system. The daily recommended amount for sleep is seven to nine hours for adults and eight to 14 hours for children. Going to bed at the same time every night, limiting the intake of caffeine-based drinks, cutting down on daytime naps and reducing the amount you spend scrolling through your gadgets and watching TV are some of the things you can change about your sleeping habits. 

4. Take Vitamins Regularly

     Your body needs a completely balanced diet for it to get all the vitamins and minerals that it needs to function everyday and defend it against illnesses. Vitamins serve as a bridge so that your body gets the nutrients that it needs. Vitamin C, for instance, is believed to increase the production of white blood cells, which are important in fighting infections. Pro tip: Stock up on your supply with Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid. 

     Vitamin C isn’t the only vitamin that can keep you healthy. Enervon Activ Soft Gel helps boost immunity and promotes healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich with Vitamin E to help fight cell damage. For the kids, let’s help support their growth not just in height but in strength with Growee Syrup or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules. 

5. Top Up with Supplements

     Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. They also have antioxidants that can do a lot of good for your mind and body. They can include supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen and Organique Acai Juice. You can also keep your defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen. 

6. Be Prepared

     Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for any health emergency. These include Lola Remedios, Strepsils, and Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, know that you can count on these items being available at Watsons.
