This year, taking a trip or getting the trendiest fashion items or acquiring the latest gadgets is not a priority. Staying healthy takes precedence over everything else; keeping ourselves and our loved ones protected has become a must in the time when a virus lurks in the shadows.
Leading health and beauty retailer Watsons offers a list of expert-recommended tips on strengthening immune system—our body’s defense against diseases.
Be active. Exercising helps build a stronger, fitter physique; improves mood; and boosts the health of our internal organs. Make sure to allot time for exercise at least 30 minutes to one hour at least four times a week. Enjoin the whole family by doing group exercises such as Zumba, among others.
Eat right. A big factor that can spell the change in strengthening the family’s immunity is watching what everyone eats. Incorporate immunity-boosting food items into daily meals—options include healthy vegetables carrots and broccoli, and flavorful spices like garlic and ginger. Cap off the meals with a warm cup of tea such as Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea.
Get quality sleep. Getting enough sleep helps increase the body’s defense against diseases. Instead of staying up late binge-watching or browsing through Facebook, Watsons recommends taking advantage of this time to start and maintain a healthy sleep routine.
Take vitamins regularly. When natural sources of nutrients are not enough, it can be supplemented by vitamins. Watsons Generics offers its brand of Ascorbic Acid. Conzace Soft Gel, on the other hand, has zinc, vitamins A, C, and E that help boost immunity and promote healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU is also rich in vitamin E to help fight cell damage. Support kids’ growth with Growee Syrup or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules.
Top up with supplements. Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to boost health. While staying healthy at home, get that glow from within with the help of supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen, and Organique Acai Juice. Or keep defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen.
Keep must-haves at hand. Preparedness is key to protection, hence the importance of having the essentials always ready. Watsons offers a variety of essential health and wellness products including Ascof Forte Syrup, Strepsils, Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, and Biogenic Ethyl Alcohol, among many others.
