Simple preventative lifestyle changes can boost natural immunity. At least seven hours of sleep each night is vital for a strong immune system. Daily exercise can help by releasing feel good hormones which improve sleep patterns. Avoid sugary foods as these can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria for up to five hours afterwards.

To further help you avoid the dreaded lurgy, check out your local grocery store for fresh seasonal antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables (raw garlic, mushrooms and sweet potatoes are great options).
