Respiratory viruses such as coronavirus, represent continuing global threats to human health. Despite significant advances, much needs to be learned. An emerging theme in coronavirus pathogenesis is that it interacts between specific viral genes and the host immune system. The immune system functions as a key determinant in regulating the disease outcomes. 

The immune system is a complex network of cells and proteins that defends the body against infection. The immune system keeps a record of every germ (microbe) it has ever defeated so it can recognise and destroy the microbe quickly if it enters the body again. By itself, the immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against diseases caused by microorganisms such as virus, bacteria, etc. But sometimes it can fail: A bacteria or virus invades successfully and makes you sick. But do you know if it’s possible to intervene in this process and boost your immune system?

  • What if you improve your diet? 
  • Take certain vitamins or herbal preparations? 
  • Make other lifestyle changes in the hope of producing a near-perfect immune response?

The idea of boosting your immunity is enticing, but the ability to do so is difficult for several reasons. The immune system is not a single entity but — a system. To function well, it requires balance and harmony. Lifestyle changes needed to boost your Immunity includes:

  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink in moderation.
  • Try to minimize stress. 
  • Don't smoke.
  • Get adequate sleep.

Apart from the above, one can also Increase the Immunity the Healthy Way-

Many pills and herbal supplements claim to "support immunity" or otherwise boost the health of your immune system. Here is a list of herbs that can help you in boosting your immune function:

  • Ashwagandha is often known as “Indian ginseng” is a herb known as a fantastic immune booster and superfood.

  • Guduchi is an adaptogenic herb that supports cell health and the immune system. 
  • Moringa has almost too many benefits to count. Moringa powder is a rich source of plant proteins, fibre, vitamins, iron and calcium. One of the best moringa benefits is its super immune-boosting powers.
  • Pomegranates have been known for hundreds of years for their multiple health benefits, including antimicrobial activity. Nearly every part of the pomegranate plant has been tested for antimicrobial activities, including the fruit juice, peel, arils, flowers, and bark.
