3 tips for a healthy life

Eat as many vegetables as possible

In addition to vitamins and minerals, vegetables also contain large amounts of fibre, which promotes good intestinal function. And 80% of our immune system is located in the intestines. An amount of 350 grams of vegetables a day is a good guideline for people with diabetes. This is easily achieved if you eat home-made vegetable soup or a salad for lunch and also eat vegetables at dinner. You should also vary your foods as much as possible. Scientific research indicates that the substances that give vegetables their colour and taste may be good for the immune system. 

Keep your vitamin D level up

Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for the immune system. It is also believed to have a positive effect on insulin levels and blood pressure. The body automatically produces vitamin D if you sit in the sun for fifteen to twenty minutes a day. If that is not possible, you should consider taking a vitamin D supplement. The Functional Neurology Institute recommends XO-D.

Getting enough rest makes the immune system more resilient

If you do not have to get up at a certain time (any more), why not let your body decide for itself when it wants to wake up? You should preferably go to bed between 10pm and 11pm and not set the alarm clock.
