You're living in a microbial minefield. Lurking on every doorknob . . . in every handshake . . . in the very air . . . are those nasty germs that can quickly transform merriment to misery.

High time to beef up the immune system!

But don't worry - while there are lots of immune-boosting tactics, I'm going to show you two of the easiest ones . . . By the time you're done reading, you'll know how to boost your immune system without even really trying.

In fact not only are these defense-building methods easy and they're highly enjoyable!

And by putting these tactics to work, you can move through this germ-ridden world with the confidence that comes with a strong immune system.

Strengthen Your Immune System With Sleep

When you are deprived of sleep, your immune system suffers.

This seems particularly true when it comes to your adaptive immune system - the part of your immune system that relies on learning and memory to do its job right. If you don't get enough sleep, your immune system seems to lose information it's collected on invaders. [1,2]

Without this key information your body loses out in two key ways:
1. The immune system doesn't recognize germs as readily. Consequently, your body can't fight them off before they have a chance to infiltrate every part of you.

2. Your body can't get rid of the invaders effectively. Ever suffer from a lingering cold? It could be because this part of your immune system that would ordinarily keep your body vigilant by plastering Wanted posters all over isn't doing its job.[3]

So while burning the midnight oil may seem necessary to get everything done each day . . . reconsider. Even if you have to give up an extra hour or two to sleep, you'll gain more time in the long run. Less sick days and more healthy days.

To keep your immune system strong, make sure you get at least 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

Boost Your Immune System With Laughter

The research on laughter and immune health is still in its infancy.

But there are some indications that a good laugh can make at least a temporary difference in your immune strength. In the 1980's, medical researcher Dr. Lee Berk found that just anticipating a funny movie not only decreased immune-inhibiting stress hormones but also increased release of the human growth hormone a whopping 87%.
[4] Human growth hormone helps optimize immunity.

Subsequent research has found that if taken soon after laughing, blood samples show an increase in both natural killer cell (NK cell) activity and levels of the immune antibody, immunoglobulin A. [5,6]

Your immune system clearly can use a good laugh.

But just to be clear, you can't be demure about this. You really have to laugh out loud to enjoy the benefits. In one of these studies, increased immune activity was linked to guffaws and giggles. When participants just smiled, there was no difference in immune activity. [7]

Enjoy Peace Of Mind That Comes With A Strong Immune System

Sleep and laugh

Pretty simple stuff when it comes to keeping healthy. And pretty enjoyable, too. No pills to swallow . . . No needles or strange brews . . . Just doing what your body naturally wants to do in order to be healthy.

The immune system is your best defense against sickness. And now you've got the inside scoop on two easy, enjoyable ways to keep it strong.

So go ahead laugh at those germs . . . or take a nap. There's never been a better two ways to make your immune system strong.
