As 2021 comes to an end, it’s important to look back on the lessons we’ve learned about health and immunity throughout the year. We’ve been battling COVID-19 since late 2019 and Malaysia has already carried out an extensive vaccination campaign, while currently rolling out booster shots. But even with the rise in vaccination and recoveries, the virus remains deadly and infections are still occurring.
But to grow and thrive, we need to open up businesses and schools, and allow people to resume their daily lives in this ‘new normal’. To do this efficiently, we need to stay safe and vigilant at all times because our fight against COVID-19 hasn’t ended. As we continue with our best efforts to keep it at bay, let’s take a look at all of the ways we can #ProtectKawKaw Together.

Signs of a weakened immune system in busy working adults can include:
We recently touched on the importance of protein for your health and beauty, so it should be no surprise that it makes an appearance here as well. These are some of the key nutrients you need to combat symptoms of a weak immune system.
Ageing bodies slow down with the passage of time. It’s not just our movement that slows, but our immune system as well. Senior citizens are at a higher risk of succumbing to fatal illnesses and diseases that might not impact someone who is younger and healthier. As such, taking the necessary measures to keep our elderly loved ones as healthy as can be is a priority.
With the elderly, signs of a compromised health show up differently than in younger adults.
The nutrients that are needed by the elderly include:
The war against COVID-19 is far from over, though we have made great headway in the past year and a half. Possessing a strong immune system and maintaining one’s immunity is also something we must be aware of, always. As we push on into 2022, let us all celebrate the New Year with greater health and brighter days to look forward to!
