Hit the “Reset” Button and BOOST Your Immune System (Wow!)

Dear Reader,

The world feels crazy and out of control for everyone right now.

So it’s nice to take time to remember the things that ARE still in your control… especially when it comes to your health.

Eating balanced meals, getting in some moderate exercise, and taking your vitamins are all great ways to stay HEALTHY in the face of a pandemic.

Each aspect is a building block to keeping your immune system strong.

But now, researchers have discovered a surprising habit that could have a MUCH bigger impact on your immune system than originally thought.

And it might just be the easiest tip yet!

Because all it takes is hitting this “reset button” to jumpstart your health and BOOST your immune system.

In a new study, researchers have discovered that fixing your circadian rhythm could be your BEST bet for shoring up your immune system.

Your circadian rhythm, or “body clock,” is what lets you know when it’s time to go to sleep or wake up.

The problem is, our modern day lifestyles have THROWN OFF this natural system.

You see, a lot of technology emits something called blue light (which is also found in sunlight). So if you spend hours on your phone or computer after the sun goes down, your body thinks it’s time to stay awake.

It’s one of the BIGGEST reasons so many people have trouble sleeping… and what leads to a wacky circadian rhythm.

Researchers at a special lab designed to study circadian rhythm discovered that the circadian rhythm controls ALL processes of your body when you confront a virus, including your lungs, heart, kidneys, brain, AND immune system.

So when you’re not getting a good night’s sleep, you’re inadvertently WEAKENING your immune system… and causing a domino effect.

The bottom line? Getting better sleep gives your body what it needs to stay healthy and strong when dealing with invaders.

There are a few easy tips to resetting your circadian rhythm. First, avoid ALL electronics after the sun goes down. This will help you stay away from dangerous blue light.

Next, avoid midnight snacks. The researchers found that eating too close to bedtime can also affect your circadian rhythm. Try sticking to eating between an eight to twelve-hour window.

Finally, try a melatonin supplement. Melatonin is a natural hormone that your body already produces to signal that it’s time to go to sleep, and boosting your levels can help you get to dreamland faster. Start with 1mg.
