6 Tips to Boost Your Immunity this Winter

Your body's immune system serves as a natural defence mechanism against foreign infections and viruses. Our immune response tends to dwindle as the temperature decreases, making some of us more vulnerable to illnesses through the cooler months. Fortunately, you can take steps to reinforce your body's natural defences to reduce the frequency and severity of illness that comes your way and help keep yourself healthy throughout winter.

Immunity Booster for Winter

One such step is consuming brown seaweed spore, specifically Undaria pinnatifida. Undaria pinnatifida is a brown seaweed native to the cold Pacific waters off the coast of Japan and Korea. It is widely consumed in Japan, China and Korea, and has been used for centuries in traditional Asian medicine for its health-boosting properties. Evergrowing scientific research backs its benefits for improving the function of the immune system.

Undaria pinnatifida seaweed spore is a type of seaweed, rich in fucoidan, a bioactive compound shown to support innate and adaptive immune responses.SeaQuo® Immune contains pure, organic Tasmanian wild-harvested Undaria pinnatifida seaweed spore. The seaweed spore contains the highest concentration of fucoidan in the plant and is therefore highly effective for therapeutic use,
including supporting immune system health.



In addition to taking SeaQuo® seaweed supplement, here are some simple yet effective lifestyle suggestions for boosting your immune function:

Stay hydrated

Most of the human body is water (roughly 60%). To ensure the well-being of mucous membranes and prevent any potential dehydration, consuming enough hydrating fluids, such as water and herbal tea, is essential for your immune system and overall health. Carry a water bottle with you for easy access! 

Eat a diet rich in immune-boosting nutrients

Eating a healthy and balanced diet is essential for maintaining a strong immune system and overall good health. Including a mix of colourful fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein sources in your meals is crucial for providing the necessary nutrients your body needs to fight illnesses and diseases. 

Key immune nutrients include:

Vitamin C - helps stimulate the production and function of white blood cells; these cells are responsible for a healthy immune system. 

Vitamin D - plays a critical role in the immune system's response to infection.

Zinc and selenium are also important, as they provide antioxidant support that helps protect cells from damage. 

Whether it be with a colourful fruit salad or a delicious plate of grilled chicken with a side of quinoa and roasted vegetables, fuelling your body with nutrient-dense foods is essential for keeping your immune system strong and protecting your overall health and well-being.

Get enough sleep

Adequate sleep is vitally important for the body's recovery and rejuvenation. Sleep and the circadian system exert a strong influence on immune functions. The lack of sufficient sleep can reduce our immune cells and have a chronic low-grade inflammatory effect, making us more susceptible to illness.2 Aiming for a minimum of 7-9 hours of sleep every night is advised to ensure optimal health and well-being.

Manage stress 

To keep your immune system functioning at its best, it can help to find ways to manage chronic stress in a healthy manner. This can be accomplished through various activities, such as regular exercise, practising meditation or mindfulness techniques, or reaching out for support from trusted friends and family members. In addition, by prioritising stress management, you can help ensure that your body is better equipped to handle any potential threats to your health and well-being.

Regular exercise

Exercise can improve immune function by stimulating the production of immune cells and reducing inflammation. Regular exercise can boost your immune system - as an example, a recent study found that exercise has a role in combating COVID-19 morbidity and mortality.3  

Taking care of your immune system is crucial to stay healthy and strong during the winter months. You can accomplish this by adding SeaQuo® Immune to your wellness regimen and practising healthy food and lifestyle habits. No need to hibernate over winter! Supporting your immune function gives your body the protection it needs to stay well throughout the cooler months.
