A British doctor shared tips that would be applied to enhance the effectiveness of the vaccine and raise the activity of the human immune system.
According to experts, a healthy lifestyle and eating food rich in vitamins and minerals contributes to raising a person’s immunity, and helps him resist several viruses, including the Corona virus.
In an article written by Dr. Michael Mosley, he advised Moseley to lose some weight for those who suffer from obesity, and indicated that excess weight, especially around the abdomen, is sufficient to make the human immune system less effective.
Probiotics and prebiotics
Moseley recommends eating foods rich in probiotics and beneficial for gut health, such as dairy products.
It is also recommended to eat prebiotics, which are foods rich in fiber, such as beans, lentils, garlic and onions, in addition to many other types of vegetables.
A good night’s sleep
A study carried out by the University of California found that healthy people who did not get enough rest the night before receiving the flu shot, their bodies produced only the minimum amount of antibodies required over the months following their vaccination.
A study from the University of Birmingham showed that people who flexed their arms a few hours before receiving a flu shot developed a stronger immune response.
While the reason behind this is still not precisely clear to scientists, exercising the arm before receiving the vaccine has proven effective, according to Al-Hurra Channel.
While he advised Moseley to stop smoking to enhance the effectiveness of the vaccine, he referred to a number of studies that have concluded that smoking is able to truly reduce the effectiveness of vaccines, and it is likely that the reason is the effect of tobacco on the human immune system.
