Simple And Effective Habits During The Day That Boosts Your Immunity

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed our world – we’ve been practicing social distancing, spending more time with family, getting inspired to cook up some delicious home-cooked food, and finding that dedicated hour of the day to exercise in order to stay fit. In these times of transformation, there’s one thing that is critical and must not be neglected – “Our Immunity“. 

This is also a time when remedies by our grandmas are making a comeback. Remember the time when turmeric milk was a ritual and Adrak ki chai was your only drink of choice? It’s time to embrace these age-old and time-honored home remedies to strengthen the mind and boost your immunity during these testing times. Of course, immunity is not built in a day, but taking the first step towards eating and maintaining a balanced diet leads to a happy and healthy life. Follow these tips on a daily basis, and you’ll notice a difference in a few weeks or months. 

Here are some easy modifications: 

  • Start Your Day With Warm Lemon Water 

Drinking lemon juice with warm water every morning, on an empty stomach, is recommended to maintain the pH balance in your body. While it is a simple step, it goes a long way in boosting your health. Lemon is one of the best sources of Vitamin C, and helps to eliminate toxins from your body, thereby building immunity. What’s more, it also helps in building digestive health, which is why some nutritionists recommend having a few sips of warm lemon water after every meal. 

  • Enjoy A Cup of Ginger Tea

If you’re born in an Indian household, you know how Adrak ki chai is the answer to all your cold and throat congestion. Not only does it clear the throat, ginger is filled with immune-boosting properties. With its high levels of Vitamin C, magnesium and other minerals, ginger root is extremely beneficial for health. Ginger has antibacterial properties and is full of antioxidants, so it helps fight infection in an effective manner. What’s more is that ginger is known to be a natural blood thinning agent and contains a phenol anti-inflammatory compound called gingerol that helps in relaxing blood vessels. 

  • Ensure to Drink Buttermilk Post Lunch 

Summer is a time when our bodies need to be properly hydrated with water and other nutritious drinks, rather than sweet carbonated beverages. One such drink is buttermilk or chaach, as it is called in Hindi. It is a great substitute for curd, aids digestion and cools down the body in the sweltering heat. 

Buttermilk is rich in probiotics and is beneficial to keep the gut and immune system healthy. While it can be consumed at any time in the day, the best time to down it is after lunch. It helps in boosting your digestion, and boost energy levels. Just when you’re about to hit the slump after lunch, buttermilk can re-energize you in no time! 

  • Drink Turmeric Milk Before Bedtime Goes a Long Way

Do you have haldi doodh or turmeric milk every night before you sleep? If not, it’s time you do! This age-old home remedy not just ensures better sleep, it boosts immunity and enhances your recovery.

The main active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, is an antioxidant that boasts powerful anti-inflammatory properties. You should definitely drink haldi doodh during every season change, to protect yourself from cough, cold and flu.If you want to add a pinch of sweetness, you can put some honey or  jaggery to enhance its taste. 

As summer takes hold and temperatures are rising, it becomes even more important to take care of your body and strengthen your immune system at every step. Following  good-health guidelines ­–balanced diet, immunity boosting foods, regular exercise– is your first line of defense and the best way towards naturally keeping your immune system strong and healthy.

**No diet or lifestyle modification- aside from physical distancing, and practicing proper hygiene – can protect you from developing COVID-19. The strategies outlined above may boost your immune health, but they don’t protect specifically against COVID-19.
