how to improve your immune system if you are over 50

Inflammation involves many different diseases, including atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer. As we all know, these conditions are common in the elderly, especially because our immune system tends to weaken as we age.

diet

Studies have shown that at least half of every meal should include vegetables and fruits. Choose healthy animal protein, such as fatty fish (salmon) or lean poultry (boneless, skinless chicken breast) and whole grains, as a source of carbohydrates and starch, which can be used for meals. Try to avoid adding sugar and saturated fat, and increase the intake of omega-3 fatty acids and foods rich in flavonoids. Flavonoids are plant compounds with anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombosis, anti-diabetic, anti-cancer and neuroprotective effects. Blackberries, cocoa powder, tea, soybeans, citrus fruits, red wine and nightshades are just a few examples of the richness of these phytonutrients. A plant-based diet will help promote immune function.

herbal medication

Walk into a store and you will find some bottles of pills and herbal preparations that claim to “support immunity” or improve the health of the immune system. Although certain preparations have been found to alter certain components of immune function, so far, there is no evidence that they can actually boost immunity and better protect you from infection and disease. Until now, it has been a very difficult question to test whether herbal medicine (or any substance) can improve immunity. For example, scientists don’t know if an herb that appears to increase antibody levels in the blood actually has a beneficial effect on overall immunity.

exercising

Regular exercise is one of the pillars of a healthy life. It improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control weight, and prevents various diseases. But does it help to naturally strengthen your immune system and keep you healthy? Like a healthy diet, exercise can promote overall health, which promotes a healthy immune system.
