I know a lot of people are worried about staying healthy in this crazy time and now with gyms closed… worrying about how to keep their weight loss journey on track so I want to share some tips on how you can boost your immune system and metabolism!
So it’s all about restoring and supporting…
We need to support our immune system by keeping inflammation down. If you have a lot of inflammation, you are more likely to get sick or get a disease. Inflammation is normal, it is our bodies way to protect and heal but we don’t want it to be overdone because that’s where the issues start.
Now shifting to weight loss and working out… after a workout, it is normal to have a bit of inflammation. It’s nothing to worry about unless the inflammation doesn’t go away then you may have an issue such as an injury. Common sense, right?
This is how it all goes hand in hand…
Keeping your immune system up, we need to stay on top of our water, stay active and get the right foods in!
I do recommend staying away from processed foods and alcohol during this time.
A lot of the key vitamins, minerals and herbs we use to boost our immune system also boost our metabolism.
Some key ones I focus on….
- Bamboo leaf
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin C
- Elderberry (great for lung health too)
You can find out if you are deficient in these by using an at home DNA kit. I love this one because you can do it in the comfort of your own home. Once you send in your DNA, you get a whole booklet on YOU plus custom vitamins based on what you need to stay healthy. You can order yours here.
