Strengthening the immune system has become a top priority for many, especially since this global pandemic has taken our world by surprise.
1. Vitamin C
Also called ascorbic acid, vitamin C plays a major role in the body’s immune system. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C fights free radical damage which makes it protective against LDL cholesterol and oxidative damage.
Zinc is an essential micronutrient that protects against free radical damage and plays a role in many enzyme reactions and bodily functions. Zinc is heavily involved in the function of white blood cells, which protects the body from bacterial and viral invasions.
Turmeric has been used in India as a culinary spice and for its medicinal benefits for thousands of years. Its active compound is Curcumin and is usually concentrated in supplement form to be used therapeutically. Curcumin has a wide variety of proven benefits to the body including its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and the modulation of the immune system. It does this by increasing the activation of T cells.
Probiotics are one of the best vitamins for boosting the immune system. They are characterized as healthy, live bacteria that populate and maintain balance in our gut. 80% of our immune system is located in the digestive system, this is because our ability to break down and absorb nutrients from food and supplements is dependent upon the health of our gut or digestive system.
5. Multivitamins And Minerals
A multivitamin/mineral contains the recommended daily intake of key nutrients to keep the body and our cells healthy. A quality supplement will ensure that you have covered all grounds in terms of meeting daily nutritional needs which will support immunity and our overall health.
