How to avoid COVID-19

As we come out of Coronavirus lockdown, now is the time to put your health first. Keeping your body in fighting condition is vital in order to avoid a second spike of the virus, and there are a few simple steps that you can take to make all the difference to your immune system:

  • SLEEP: its free, no need for a prescription, but totally ignored. Getting your 8-hours sleep religiously is the best way to prep your immune system and its effective within a day or two. See our blog for more: https://www.prolongevity.co.uk/blog/sleep
  • EXERCISE: also free! With all this isolation we need to keep moving for the sake of our sanity as well as physical wellbeing. Walking is healthy and helps with immunity. If you can do a few minutes of brisk walking (get properly puffed) so-much the better
  • DIET: Eat the Rainbow! Key to our immunity is the microbiome – the bugs in our gut which do so much for us, including manufacturing our vitamins as well as helping control our weight and blood sugar. Look after your bugs and they’ll look after you! So no more McDonalds, PizzaHut and Doritos… Instead aim for lots of colours and lots of variety. A rich and varied diet will support a diverse and varied, and therefore resilient, microbiome. Aim to eat 30-40 different plants (veg/salad/fruit) each week
  • STRESS: It has been shown that dog owners live longer! In part because they walk more but equally because our canine friends are great stress-busters. Stress raises cortisol which in turn raises blood sugar and blood pressure. None of this helps our immunity or general wellbeing. Humans are social species yet we’re been told to isolate to avoid infection. Don’t’ ignore stress – focus on whatever stressbuster works best for you
  • VITAMINS: Supplements are no substitute for a healthy diet. We are not believers in expensive supplements which end up as expensive urine! That said we believe almost anyone will benefit from supplementing VitaminD + K2, Magnesium and Vitamin C in high doses. Selenium and Zinc are also worth considering.
