Did you know you can’t actually catch a cold from being cold….. 🥶
Viruses, such as rhinoviruses and influenza, cause colds and the flu, not the weather. Although, exposure to cold weather can increase your risk of catching a virus, especially if you have a weak immune system. 😷
Study’s done have shown that cold weather reduces the immune response and makes it harder for the body to fight off illness. That’s why people are more commonly sick in the winter months than summer!
Protect yourself this winter by taking your vitamins, drink lots of water, exercise, eat plenty of fruits, veggies and lean protein, and wash your hands regularly! 🖐🏻
