Our immune system is like a special defense unit that works around the clock to protect our bodies. It's made up of many different components, all of which are precisely tuned to each other - an impressive system that we usually don't think about much.
That said our immune system certainly deserves more attention. It does great things every day and loves a little support from its greatest ally: YOU.

Stress, lack of sleep or an unbalanced diet, but also environmental toxins and lack of exercise can have a negative effect on the immune system. In order to stay healthy it is therefore particularly important to pay attention to one's own habits.
Now you might think: I would like to do more for my health, but I simply don't have enough time.
Don't worry, you're not alone with your thoughts. If you want to balance a stressful job, family and leisure time, it often feels like the day just doesn't have enough hours.
Today we want to encourage you to change your mindset. Even small changes in your daily routine can have a big impact on your health. For example, you can simply sleep a little longer! 😉
One of the simplest and most important and underestimated health tips on the planet is: sleep enough! Sleep affects how we look, feel and perform on a daily basis. If we do not get enough sleep, we feel tired, irritable or unfocused quickly. Studies have also shown that sleep deprivation suppresses immune system function.
Bottom line: Treat yourself to the luxury of 30 - 60 minutes more sleep per night. Even this small change could change your life...
Reducing stress is easier said than done. Nevertheless, there are a lot of little tricks that you can use to balance out even on hectic days. This can be a little walk during lunch break, a few breathing exercises at your desk or a little meditation in the fresh air. Find out what makes you happy and helps you relax.
If the body lacks important nutrients, the immune system cannot do what it is supposed to do.
The best way to cover your daily nutritional requirements is with fresh and versatile foods. Especially fresh fruit and vegetables (regional and seasonal) should be part of your daily menu. Don't forget: You are what you eat.
There are a number of vitamins and minerals that are important for our immune system. One of them is zinc. Zinc is known to contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system - and that is just one of many benefits. This is why theProbiolac Culture Complex from Aava Labs is enriched with the mineral zinc. This broad-spectrum preparation with 15 carefully selected bacterial strains has been formulated to provide optimal support for your health.
Regular exercise helps you stay healthy and fit. You have only little time? Then think about how you can integrate exercise into your everyday life. Leave the car at home and cover shorter distances by foot or by bike, climb stairs instead of using the elevator or turn your house cleaning into a workout...
It is no longer a secret: (too much) alcohol and cigarettes are toxic for the body. If you want to give your immune system a big gift, then stop smoking and enjoy alcohol only occasionally and in moderation.
The importance of digestive health is often forgotten. In fact 70-80% of immune cells are located in the gut!
Our digestive system is particularly happy when given a little extra attention, e.g. with the right diet, conscious chewing and sufficient rest between meals.
Did you know that positive thinking can strengthen the immune system? A very simple trick, with which you can make your thoughts positive very quickly: Write down at least three things you are grateful for and repeat the ritual every day. After a few days and weeks you will automatically have a smile on your lips when going through your notes. Promise!
A functioning immune system is always the sum of many small parts. Even if we do not have influence on everything, we can make an important contribution to our health and well-being with our daily decisions.
We at Aava Labs want to help you with our products, so that you can contribute to your health every day and without much effort. It's worth it!
Do you read the labels of your supplements in detail?
When buying supplements, many people just quickly skim the list of ingredients without really understanding what's actually behind them.
We admit: The list of ingredients in dietary supplements can be very hard to understand. What many consumers don't know is that supplements from some brands contain many unnecessary ingredients in addition to vitamins and minerals.
Avoid supplements with a long list of "inactive ingredients" on the label. Because some of these additives can be harmful to your health.
We explain what exactly additives are and why they are sometimes found in supplements. Learn which additives you should avoid no matter what, so you know what ingredients to look out for the next time you buy.
It doesn't matter how old you are or what life situation you are in:
Life can be quite overwhelming!
From stress at work to family obligations or financial worries, there are so many types of stressors.
We are constantly trying to give 100% at work, want to be as productive as possible, be there for our partners and family, maintain our sports routine, and on top of that support other people - all while also wanting to maintain our social contacts and see our friends regularly!
Do you love sun-kissed skin just as much as we do?
Tanned skin looks healthy and glowing. But it's probably no surprise to you that overexposure to the sun can lead to skin damage and accelerated aging, right?
Besides the well-known sun protection, such as sunscreen, head covering and sun umbrellas, you should also pay attention to your intake of vitamins and minerals. The B vitamins and many other vitamins and minerals have the fascinating ability to protect your skin from the inside out.
In this article, we'll introduce you to 5 of the best supplements for summer.
