Updated: Jan 13
WHAT KEY FACTORS AFFECT THE IMMUNE SYSTEM?
An individual under psychophysical stress has an increased risk getting infections. The body is affected by stress: think about stress-related gastritis. The body uses the resources of the immune system to self-repair.
2. Sedentary lifestyle
Moderate physical activity contributes to good health and keeps the whole body trained allowing for the immune response to be more efficient than in a sedentary person.
3. Sleep deprivation
In addition to the psychological benefits of getting adequate rest, it has been scientifically proven that people who sleep less than 7-8 hours tend to get sick more frequently. Furthermore, it is important to sleep between 11pm and 7am for maximum rest.
4. Poor nutrition
A high calories diet requires more energy from the body for the metabolism, in particular it involves the digestive system which plays a key role for the immune system. Furthermore, more specifically, respecting not only the quantity of calories but the quality of calories is important: respecting a balanced diet in macronutrients: carbohydrates, proteins, fats and rich in vegetables for their intake of vitamins and minerals.
Water and proper hydration plays a keyrole in having greater resistance to viral infections, both directly and indirectly: in fact, it improves one physical performance and the quality of sleep.
