Importance of strengthening your immune system and having an active lifestyle

The immune system is effective against many disease-causing germs and viruses. Due to the virus that causes Covid-19, being a novel virus, it is not recognized by our immune system and the body’s defence against it is limited. This is why physical distancing, mask wearing and hand sanitising is imperative.

It is important to know that a strong immune system will not prevent you from contracting COVID-19. However, developing a strong immune system while you are healthy can help sustain your body as it familiarizes itself with the virus if you do get sick. Boosting your immune health can also help you fight other common bugs such as cold or flu viruses. Research suggests that nutrition, quality exercise and activity can benefit your immune health.
