Staying healthy during winter

We are now deep into the winter, a dreaded time for many people. Only a few hours of sunlight and cold temperatures means we are more susceptible to physical and mental illness. This article will guide you through some steps you can take to ensure you are staying healthy this winter and how bioniq supplements can help you achieve that!

Maintain a balanced diet

Maintaining a balanced diet is essential to ensure your body’s immune system functions at its optimum level. We won’t bore you with the specifics of what a balanced diet entails, but you can have a look at this great resource made available by the UK’s NHS. Besides following a balanced diet plan, supplementation is another way to ensure your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs to function at its best and bioniq’s personalised supplements can help you achieve just that.  

Keep hydrated

Staying hydrated is one of the easiest ways to help protect your body from illness, yet we often don’t drink the required amount of water for our body’s optimum functioning. Remember, 2 litres a day is the golden number to ensure your body is not suffering from dehydration and can perform at its optimum level!

Get adequate sleep and rest

We have previously discussed in detail on our blog the importance of getting a good night’s sleep. Firstly, sleep is vital for your body’s physical wellbeing. Equally as important is the impact of sleep on your mental wellbeing. Not only will you feel more productive having achieved a good night’s sleep, but your brain function may be boosted too! Studies have shown the positive impact sleep has on long-term memory and your brain’s ability to regulate its emotional activity.

Protect yourself against the flu (and other viruses!)

During the winter, one of the most prevalent illnesses is the influenza virus, also known as the flu. To reduce your chances of contracting the virus, regularly wash your hands (of course, this applies to any virus). Getting the influenza vaccine is also likely to reduce your chances of becoming ill.

Exercise a few times a week

Exercising during the winter can often be a gruelling task, with many people lacking energy and motivation, but the importance of continuously working out continously should not be undermined. Exercise will not only support your physical health but is also proven to play a positive role in your mental health.

How bioniq can help

And finally, we would like to point out that our personalised bioniq supplements can help maintain the function of your immune system throughout the year. Our bioniq LIFE formula is based on a 50 parameter blood test, including microelements that support your immune system. We measure and analyse the components that make up your white blood cells - the body’s immune system, specifically, levels of neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, eosinophils and basophils, all of which are crucial to the function of your immune system.
