Ways To Support Your Defense System

TLC is here to support you; mind, body, and soul. Your body’s defense system is a bigger part of these than you may have imagined. 80% of your defense system is focused on your gut, so to be healthy or stay healthy, you need to make sure that you fuel your body with proper nutrition. Your defense system doesn’t stop here, though, your environment can also impact how your body handles attackers.

1. Exercise!

Exercising is a great way to get your blood circulating and burn some calories. But it can also increase your body’ defense response as well. One study found that just 20 minutes of treadmill exercise resulted in a five percent decrease in cells producing TNF, which is a regulator of inflammation and defense responses. In a nutshell, exercising helps your body stimulate an attack response and provide an anti-inflammatory cell response. So, getting to your gym or even walking outside for 20 minutes can be a great idea if you want to become healthier and fight off any sickness.

2. Reduce Stress

Stress is a response to physical or mental events, and some level of stress is okay! Our body strengthens our muscles to adapt to stress physically, and mentally we adapt to stress as well. But if we are continually adapting to these stressful situations, it can take a toll on our body. Chronic stress suppresses the body’s defenses by releasing cortisol, which is a stress hormone that interferes with T-cells, which are a type of cell that destroy infected cells. If we are constantly adapting to these stressful situations, our health can be compromised. So reach out to friends, try some positive thinking exercises, and just breathe.

3. Get Your Vitamins

Consuming foods that are rich in vitamins can be an excellent start to becoming healthier. Vitamin C and D are crucial for your health. Vitamin C is vital for stimulating collagen synthesis, connective tissue, bones, and teeth, as well as forming small blood vessels. Vitamin D is a part of defense responses and suppresses T-cells and, in turn, increases the production of anti-inflammatory cells. Good sources of vitamin C are oranges, yellow bell peppers, spinach, kiwis, broccoli, and strawberries.
