Immune systems are complex and vary from person to person. If you have a strong immune system then your body will be able to fight off most illnesses whereas if you have a weak immune system, it won’t.
As you age, your immune system can become less effective. There are several other factors that can also cause this. These include:
If you feel you have a weakened immune system and can identify what might be causing it, you may be able to give your immune system a boost by making a few small changes.
For instance, if you’re exercising too much and not having enough sleep, now might be the time to slow down and try to rest more.
Having a good diet is essential and you should look at how you can introduce some foods that have been proven to give immune systems a helping hand. If you prefer, you could take daily supplements to make sure your body receives the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and minerals.Zinc and vitamin C supplements are particularly good for immunity.
If you have a condition or disease that is causing you to have a low immune system you should speak to your GP. They may be able to prescribe something to help.
