Immune Health

Immune Health

Everything we consume on a daily basis, our nutritional intake, has a direct effect on the health of our Immune System as well as our general health.

Immune system is activated when body is “under attack” from toxins, bacteria, viruses, fungi and other pathogens. One of the ways our body uses immune system is as a defense mechanism to fight & eliminate these “foreign invaders” and disease.

What your body needs: get your shield on

Herbalife Nutrition’s Global Nutrition Philosophy offers a roadmap of what we should be doing and consuming in order to have a strong Immune Health so body can efficiently fight off foreign bodies and recover quicker from the “attack”:

Macro Nutrients

  • Protein
  • Healthy Fats
  • Carbohydrates & Fibre

Micro Nutrients

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Phytonutrients

Other needs:

  • Hydration
  • Exercise
  • Rest

The way Herbalife Nutrition plays a big role in supporting people with their health is through good, balanced nutrition & healthy, active lifestyle – high quality supplements working alongside healthy diet, exercise & rest for maximum benefit. Combination of all those together builds strong immune health.

PROTEIN

Is essential component of every cell in the body including our immune cells, so there is a very strong connection between protein, lean muscle mass and healthy immune system.

Post-exercise protein has been shown to have beneficial effects for the immune system in athletes. Aim to consume up to 30% of your daily calories from protein by balancing plant protein with animal protein, unless your diet is entirely plant based. In that case, Herbalife Nutrition would help top up body with complete protein body may not be getting or is getting at the expense of too many calories consumed…

FIBRE

Dietary fibres are the indigestible parts of plant foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes. Fibre can be soluble and insoluble and both are key for a healthy functioning digestive system. Microbiome in our gut need healthy fibre to eat and a healthy gut contributes to the maintenance of a healthy immune system, making fibre very important for our immunity.

Adults should consume 25 grams of fibre per day. Research, however, shows that average daily intake of fibre in many European countries, including the UK, is less than the half of the recommended amount, in most countries being below 13 grams per day, so Herbalife Nutrition can help fill the gap without excess calories.

Healthy fats play a key role in our bodies as they are needed for a normal functioning of the immune system as well as vision, brain and heart, in particular blood pressure and normal blood triglyceride levels. Some fats, such as Omega 3s are considered to be essential, so we have to get them through diet. Healthy fats should be up to 30% of the diet.
