Angellica Bell discusses about how we can improve our immune system this winter

Health and wellness habits slip during the summer (18%) with diet (19%) and forgetting to take health supplements (20%) some of the top factors disregarded.

The report by Actimel, based on self-reported behaviours of 2,000 people shows levels of immunity varying substantially across the UK – with Yorkshire and the Humber coming out on top and North East the worst.

The research also found that since the pandemic, over a third (35%) of Brits say that they have become more conscious of making positive health choices but 20% regularly forget to eat breakfast and admit to not taking vitamins, supplements, or fortified products, whilst 19% lapsed in exercising regularly.

The change in season gives us the impetus to support immunity levels, as nearly half of Brits (47%) believe that the weather hurts their health, and over a quarter (28%) fear that there are more germs on the commute. Close to a third of parents (30%) worry they are going to get sick with children returning to school.

Aston spoke to TV presenter Angellica Bell and immunologist Dr Jenna Macciochi.
