Of course, it’s important to go into sport and have a normal rest but you should monitor your nutrition.

Step 1. Eat properly

Say “No” to fried products, eat boiled one. They have more useful substances inside. They can also be digested easily. Add more spices – garlic, pepper, ginger. Eat more fish, meat and dairy products because they have protein inside? Which helps your immune system to fight against different viruses.  Among this, don’t forget about carrot. red pepper, tomatoes. lemons, citrus fruits, nuts, apples, greenery, fish.

Step 2. Say no to diets

Don’t be so extreme. If you are overweight, go into sport or fitness and eat properly. It should be balanced ratio. Your body needs to have all the necessary vitamins and elements. That’s the basics.

Diet leads to insufficient amount of vitamins which makes you immune system very weak. By practicing diet you will leave your organism without vitamins, especially if it’s mono-diet.

Step 3. Eat products with big amount of zinc and selenium.

These elements are responsible for forming a strong immune system. You can find them in pulses, seeds, cereals, greenery, fish, nuts, garlic, seafood. Only 100 gr of fresh greenery can fulfill your daily norm of microelements. In case you have small amount of them, you can take some polyvitaminic complexes.

Step 4. Increase the amount of fresh vegetables, fruits and greenery

These tasty one have a lot of  anti-oxidizers. They help to fight against free radicals. And of course fruits and vegetables are full of vitamins and microelements. They sat that if you have at least 500 gr of fresh fruits and vegetables daily then you will have all the necessary stuff.

Step 5. Don’t eat too much sugar. Coffee and alcohol

If you want to stay fit and healthy – you have to control these products. Scientists say that if you eat too much sugar you will decrease the strength of your immune system. Same goes for coffee. If you drink more than 5 cups, the reaction of your immune system on viruses decreases on 30%. As an alternative – you can drink green tea which is much better.

As for the alcohol, it blocks the production of antibodies and lymphocytes. The defense system restores only after whole day.

Green tea eliminates all the viruses and bacterias which can cause flu. If you are ill, you should drink 3-4 cups every day.
