A fighting chance

While catching the occasional lurgy is inevitable, there’s ways we can prep our immune system to help it function properly. Did you know sleep deprivation could make you more susceptible to the flu? Or that a certain number of white blood cells is linked to optimal immunity? There’s a lot more to immune system protection than you might think, so we’ve put together this guide to bring you up to speed.

Numerous factors affect the efficiency of the immune system, with your diet and lifestyle playing key roles. As well as obtaining sufficient levels of key vitamins and minerals, ensure you get sufficient sleep, exercise regularly (but not excessively) and take time out to relax and reduce stress.
