Did you know a strong and healthy immune system extends far beyond the absence of disease? Having a strong immune system can help us ward off and fight many germs and viruses, and help our bodies be more resilient and efficient. Being healthy often starts with having a strong and healthy immune system.

If you imagine your immune system as a bucket of water, and every action you take is going to either add water or take some water away, then you’ll agree it’s important to keep your “immune system bucket” as full as possible.

Beyond that, if you have a strong immune system, then you’ll have more:

Why You Need a Strong Immune System

1. Resilience

Your body will be able to deal with life’s surprises (and stressors) in a more efficient way. Keeping your bucket as full as possible means that each life stressor that comes up may take away a little water, but will never leave you on empty.

2. Energy

Having a robust immune system will help keep your energy levels up. That may just be the extra energy you’ve been needing to handle day-to-day challenges and life stress. It may also be the burst of extra energy you’ll need to get started on your fitness journey or take your training to the next level.

3. Efficiency

When your immune system is strong, then the essential processes your body needs in order to function are taken care of. And when it comes to exercise, this means you will have more energy to work out, and you will also benefit more from your effort because your strong immune system will give your body the buffer it needs to recover more efficiently.
