The immune system is the body’s way of protecting itself from infection and disease. Each month, your CSFP box will contain a variety of fruits, vegetables, protein, and healthy grains to help keep your heart healthy.
You can help your immune system stay strong by following these tips below.
Eating well means emphasizing plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, whole grains, and fat–free or low–fat milk and milk products. Eating well also means limiting saturated fats, cholesterol, salt, and added sugars.
Be Physically Active:
Regular physical activity helps you feel better, sleep better, and reduce anxiety. Combined with eating well, physical activity can help a person maintain a healthy weight.
Maintain a Healthy Weight:
Safe ways to help maintain a healthy weight include reducing stress, eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, and engaging in regular physical activity.
Get Enough Sleep:
Scientific evidence is building that sleep loss can negatively affect different parts of the immune system.
