    I pulled this info from a combination of my medical school studies and my undergraduate exercise science studies. Be prepared this cold season with the following tips!
  • Heat--> the cold virus is very sensitive to higher temperatures which is why people always say to eat chicken soup or drink tea. The virus replicates and lives in the nasal area because it is cooler, so inhaling hot vapors from foods will help destroy it. Also, wearing a scarf to warm your nose when outside may help to prevent getting sick in the first place.

  • Exercise--> if you don't have a fever, light to moderate exercise has been proven to strengthen the immune system with immediate results. Walking for a half hour to an hour is all it takes! If you're walking in a public place please try not to get anyone else sick and cover your mouth with your arm when you cough or sneeze ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ‘

  • Oranges-->not just for the vitamin C, but also the folate in them which helps with creating new virus attacking immune cells. Processing can destroy these vitamins so whole fruit is always better than juices.

  • Hand sanitizer-->some studies show it works better than washing hands at destroying the cold virus. Obviously you should still wash your hands to prevent other germs from spreading and getting other illnesses.

  • Vitamin A-->eating a diet rich in vitamin A (as well as folate) can keep your immune system strong because the vitamin is needed for immune system cell replication. Good sources of vitamin A include sweet potato, carrots, spinach, kale, mangos, tuna, red peppers, and cantaloupe. Include these foods in your diet during cold season (and all year) to keep your immune system strong.

  • Please like and share!! Thanks! โ˜บ๏ธ and good luck this cold season ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘
