If you woke up today feeling good, you might want to give thanks to your immune system. The immune system is made up of special cells, proteins, tissues and organs. The main purpose of your immune system is to defend your body against viruses, germs and harmful bacteria. It works by recognizing the difference between your body’s cells and foreign cells, allowing it to destroy any that could be potentially damaging. However, when your immune system isn’t working properly, it can wrongly classify some of your own cells and attack them instead.
For most of us, we can keep our immune system functioning properly by eating a good diet, getting enough sleep and regularly exercising1. However, sometimes our immune system needs a little extra support, especially when our busy lifestyle doesn’t allow us to always eat right, get enough sleep or exercise like we should. Here are four ways to strengthen our immune system when nothing else seems to work.
1) Take probiotics
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. These good bacteria help keep your gut healthy and a large proportion of your immune system is actually in your gut2. Adding probiotics can benefit people of all ages and help support the digestive system, which in turns helps the immune system3. Here’s more info on probiotics and the immune system.
2) Drink more water
We don’t always remember just how important staying hydrated is to our body. In addition to keeping our joints lubricated, delivering oxygen throughout the body, regulating our body temperature, maintaining blood pressure and flushing out body waste4 (as if that’s not enough!), drinking water has a huge impact on the immune system and can help prevent and reverse illnesses and disease, including arthritis and joint pain, depression, insomnia, as well as leukemia and lymphoma5.
3) Reduce your stress
For most of us, stress is something that just comes along with our modern, hectic lifestyle and we accept it as the norm. Unfortunately, this byproduct of our lifestyle could be making us sick. Research shows that stress can severely weaken our immune system and can lead to other physical problems such as heart disease. So how can we reduce our stress levels in today’s world?

4) Take Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™
Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol is the ultimate refinement of colloidal silver. Colloidal silver is a generic term that often refers to silver dietary supplements marketed for “immune support”*, and can go by several names, including true colloidal silver, ionic silver, structured silver, silver protein, silver water and silver hydrosol, among others. For more information, please read What is Colloidal Silver?
Silver supplements, including Sovereign Silver Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol, are marketed under the general structure/function claim for “Immune Support”*. Sovereign Silver is the #1 selling brand of silver supplements for immune support* in North America.
