How to Build & Maintain a Strong Immune System
Travel, indoor dining, large social gatherings...The world is slowly opening back up! As the vaccination rollout has progressed, many Americans have started to embrace real-world group activities. Is it just us or does it feel wild?! The transitional period has been a little rocky for many of us, and that’s OK.
Just because we are leaving quarantine behind us, doesn’t mean we are leaving behind all of our quarantine practices. As we make our way outside, holding on to some of the health and safety practices we refined during quarantine might be just what we need. Keeping the immune system strong is a great habit to form! In this article, we discuss immune support in a post-covid world and how CBD can help.
Why Focus on Immune Support as the World Opens Back Up?
When your immune system is in excellent shape, you won’t even notice it working to protect you around the clock. That being said, when there is something wrong with your immune functioning, you’ll know. The immune system is the body's complex network of cells and proteins that protect and defends you against infection. The immune system works by finding the difference between your body’s cells and alien cells, destroying any that could be potentially harmful. Your immune system is constantly looking after you and keeping you healthy so it’s important that you are looking after it too!
During quarantine, many of us started amping up our vitamins, our self-care routines, and our eating and exercise habits. We were building up our immune health whether we were aware of it or not! Now that normalcy is returning, it is important to stick with our newfound immune support.
How to Keep Your Immune System Strong
As schools and offices open their doors, there are many ways to strengthen your immune system to ensure it is ready to fight any battle headed your way. A few basics include:
- Drinking plenty of water every day
- Eating a balanced diet (check out our fav Superfoods here)
- Exercising regularly
- Getting a good night’s sleep every night
- Immune Defense Supplements like CBD
More about CBD and the Immune System
Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds that can be found in hemp plants, and the human body. Endocannabinoids are produced in the human body - phytocannabinoids are found in plants. Cannabidiol (aka CBD) can help boost your immune system by helping modulate the functioning and secretion of cytokines. These are large groups of proteins, which are secreted in your body’s immune system. It can also help regulate inflammation, immunity, and the production of white blood cells. All of this will aid your immune system in its fight against infection and keep you healthy and thriving! All in all, CBD is a great addition to your immune system armor.
What We Suggest
CBD, in combination with the right ingredients (such as Melatonin, Gaba, or Magnesium), can lead you closer to the promise of a good night's rest, providing essential support to your immune functioning. Vena's Restful Night Capsules are a great isolate option that blends CBD with Melatonin and Magnesium to support a healthy sleep cycle. If you're looking for some deeper sleep, our Full Spectrum Restful Night Bites combine Full Spectrum and Melatonin in the form of a delicious gummy so you can satisfy your sweet tooth and prepare for a blissful night's rest.
Returning to Normal(ish)

Boosting the immune system is a great way to amp up your wellness plan. Try focusing on nutrition, sleep, Defense Supplements, and exercise for total body protection. We are with you every step of the way!
