What’s The Recipe For a Great Immune System?
Eat, Sleep, Magnesium, Repeat
With most recipes, it’s not just one ingredient, but several working together. It starts with a good diet, regular exercise, restorative sleep, and smart supplementation to help the body maintain optimal levels of key nutrients and minerals. One mineral that is often lacking for many, no matter how well you eat, is magnesium. Magnesium is an essential mineral for maintaining good health.
What does magnesium do?
Magnesium helps control hundreds of chemical reactions in the body. It regulates blood pressure, strengthens muscles and bones, and supports cardiac and brain function. And it keeps your immune system strong. Nobody functions well without a healthy immune system.
Cough Cough, Wheeze, Wheeze
Have you watched the news lately? It seems like there is a nationwide epidemic of illnesses from stomach viruses to the flu to the common cold. These are rampant and continue to spread, in part due to weakened immune systems.
Inflammation is another common immune system response to infection, irritation, or injury. It appears in different parts of the body. Allergy and asthma sufferers know (inflammation of the nose or airways), but inflammation is also behind arthritis (inflammation of the joints) and dermatitis (inflammation of the skin). And of course, when we sprain an ankle or get a bee sting, our body reacts with, you guessed it -- inflammation.
According to the National Institutes of Health, magnesium is one of the most important of all the micronutrients. In fact, magnesium is the key micronutrient that modulates inflammation at the cellular level. Without proper magnesium stores, unchecked inflammation impacts your immunity and ability to heal.
So, How Do I Stay Healthy?
Practice healthy habits and boost your immunity by increasing your magnesium intake. Get enough sleep, practice good hygiene (we all know hand-washing is the best offense against spreading illness), and eat right.
As for magnesium, the answer is simple. And you don't have to take a single pill! What's wrong with pills and supplements?
