Cold & Immune Support

Our immune system is our mode of defense against intruders from the outside world. The immune system is able to differentiate between the body’s own cells and foreign antigens. This includes viruses, bacteria, fungi, foreign tissue, and toxins.

White blood cells recognize antigens and try to eliminate them. As we interact with our environment, the immune system becomes better and better at recognizing these antigens and keeping us healthy.

Supplements that may help:

1.  Vitamin C
Since humans cannot manufacture vitamin C and it’s not stored it in the body, it needs to be constantly replenished.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and strengthens our immune system cells. It gets used up rapidly during infection and when we are under tremendous stress. 

Supplemental vitamin C has been found in studies to lower the severity and duration of a cold, and in early studies may lessen the severity of hospitalized Covid patients’ symptoms.

Recommended: Now Vitamin C 1000

2.  Vitamin D
Vitamin D deficiency is a worldwide issue, which is a problem because this superstar vitamin modulates so many aspects of our immune function. It makes our innate immune system more efficient in killing bacteria and viruses, and can reduce the frequency of upper respiratory infections.

Recommended: Now Vitamin D 5000Ui 

3.  Zinc
The World Health Organization reports that between 17% and 30% of the world population has a zinc deficiency, potentially affecting health outcomes.

Zinc is a trace mineral with crucial effects on the effectiveness of the cells and cytokines of our innate and adaptive immune systems. Zinc aids in fighting viruses, protects us from free radical damage to our cells, and has been shown to shorten the duration of a cold when given as a supplement.

Recommended:  Now Zinc

4.  Curcumin
This substance is the main active ingredient in turmeric root and has been shown to bestow multiple health benefits.

In fact, there are more than 120 human clinical trials showing the effectiveness of curcumin in treating diseases ranging from autoimmunity to Alzheimer’s disease.

The magic of curcumin is how it decreases inflammation at multiple levels in the body, not only helping with symptom relief from pain and arthritis but also blocking inflammatory cytokines driving autoimmune disease, heart disease and diabetes.

It also improves the health of our gut bacteria, which adds to our overall immune health

Recommended:   Now Curcumin

5. Probiotics
