4 Immunity-Boosting Ingredients
The immune system functions as protection for the body against viruses and bacteria by differentiating between the naturally occurring cells in the body and unnatural, potentially harmful cells. We are constantly under attack by the environment and the innate and adaptive immune systems are present inside of us to provide a constant defense.
To keep your immune system strong and functioning optimally, incorporate these four powerful ingredients into your daily regimen.
Zinc has naturally occurring antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is effective at reducing respiratory infections and promoting wound healing. It has also been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol levels, and other conditions. In addition, zinc boosts cell function for healthy development.
Those with zinc deficiencies are at heightened risk of pathogens and illness. This is caused by a negative effect on the immune cells, such as those cells that perform the process of phagocytosis in which the cell engulfs and absorbs what it perceives to be a foreign entity. Supplement your zinc intake with daily multivitamins and zinc-rich foods, including red meat, beans, nuts, poultry, and whole grains.
Vitamin D, like zinc, protects the body against foreign organisms that may bring with them illness and infection. This vitamin is synthesized within the body and promotes a strengthened immune response to fight off these substances. This is especially important for those with autoimmune diseases.
Vitamin D is actually a hormone and is heavily involved in many systems of the body and in the interconnectivity of the systems.
As well as enhancing the immune system, vitamin D helps to strengthen bones through the promotion of calcium homeostasis. Supplement with vitamin D to protect against flu, respiratory infection, and immunity imbalance.
Vitamin C is an important micronutrient and antioxidant that helps to support cellular function and kill dangerous microbes that enter the body. In particular, vitamin C aids in bolstering the cell barrier to ward off pathogens and viruses. Vitamin C protects immune cells from damage by scavenging free radicals that are produced during the inflammatory phase of healing and protection.
Vitamin C enhances B and T cell function and enhances overall antibody levels. It also modulates cytokine production. Cytokines are the messengers of the immune system. Vitamin C also optimizes the function of neutrophils for the attack and removal of pathogens.
Vitamin C can help to manage blood pressure, lower inflammation, and prevent chronic disease while also boosting the immune system. Vitamin C is an essential nutrient and cannot be synthesized by human beings. Incorporate more vitamin C into your diet easily by consuming citrus fruits, bell peppers, kale, and daily multivitamins.
Full-spectrum hemp powder has strong anti-inflammatory properties which help to strengthen the body’s immune responses and protect against autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and fibromyalgia. Hemp promotes a healthy endocannabinoid system and is also effective in relieving pain. The phytochemicals found in hemp have receptors on the white blood and can directly support the function of the immune system.
