Immunity is a concern, especially since cold and flu season is right around the corner. Nutrition means giving our bodies the things we need to fight off infection or illness.
Whenever your kids (or your coworker’s kids) start a new school year, chances are they will be interacting with new people and bringing home new germs. Adding to that is the coming cooler weather that will keep us all indoors and in closer contact with each other.
All of us here at Sunwarrior want you to have your immune system defenses in place. So we compiled a little cheat sheet on ways to help give you and your immune system a boost:
Get Enough Sleep
Sleep acts as a vital support to your immune system. It’s a chance for your body to recharge and reset. According to the Sleep Foundation, sleep is an important part of bodily rest that plays a crucial role in the immune system and contributes to both innate and adaptive immunity. It works because breathing and muscle activity slows during sleep, which means your body can transfer the energy it would have used for those activities to bulk up the immune system.
Exercise reduces stress. Simple exercise like a walk or bicycling helps to increase circulation of white blood cells which helps to build the immune response. Exercise can detox your lymphatic system as well. Pair that with the energy gained through exercise, and the body is prepped to fight the germs you might be coming into contact with. Mild, low impact exercise is as effective as high intensity exercise.
When you become stressed, your body creates the hormone cortisol, which is fine in small amounts because it actually helps you in small amounts. But what happens when your body becomes overstressed and your body grows accustomed to the amount of cortisol? More inflammation happens and a decreased immune system. You can minimize stress through meditation or yoga for fifteen minutes a day which reduces inflammation and increases mental health as well as physical health. You can also minimize stress by reading or working on creative endeavors.
Wash hands frequently
People touch their faces, especially their eyes and their noses, all the time. Washing hands is something everyone should be doing, especially when handling high-touch surfaces. Washing your hands with soap and water helps prevent the spread of germs.
Fruits and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants and nutrition that build up your body’s natural defenses, especially foods such as garlic, beets, and turmeric help form a line of defense against you and the germs that might show up in your personal space. But more, eating plant-based improves the effectiveness of white blood cells.
Ben Franklin said, “The best doctor gives the least medicine.” Mr. Franklin is also attributed to saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” We could not agree more. Your good health starts with great nutrition. And we take nutrition very seriously because, at Sunwarrior, we know it’s what’s inside that counts.

The facts are that both adults and kids need certain nutrients and vitamins in their systems in order to bulk up their immunity muscles so they can fight off whatever new health crisis throws at them. It’s also a fact that most of us don’t get those necessary nutrients from our food, which is where Sunwarrior’s Vitamin Mineral Rush comes in.
