Many people wonder how best to give their immune system a boost. But have you ever wondered how to help your body fight off illness?

Well, here’s the thing: Optimizing your immunity is usually easier said than done. Nevertheless, making some changes to your lifestyle and diet can help strengthen your body’s defense system and fight off pathogens.

This article discusses six tips that can help make your immune system bulletproof.

1. Get adequate sleep

There’s a close tie between sleep and immunity. Conversely, poor sleep increases your susceptibility to illness.

A study involving 164 adults with no underlying health conditions found that those who had less than 6 hours of sleep per night had a higher chance of catching a cold than those who slept up to 6 hours or more each night (1).

Getting enough rest may boost your natural immunity. Also, humans sleep more when they are sick. This gives our immune system the much-needed rest and boosts to fight off the illness (2).

As an adult, you need up to 7 hours of sleep each night to help your immune system function at optimal capacity. Teenagers need no less than 8–10 hours of sleep, while infants should aim for 14 hours minimum (3).
