The right foods & supplements can provide your body with the critical nutrients needed for a healthy immune system.
Select the following that interests you:
Vitamin C stimulates the production of our immune system’s white blood cells (leukocytes), protects immune cells from free radical damage, increases the antiviral activity of immune cells by helping in the production of interferon, increases the ability for immune cells (neutrophils) to kill microbes, and can shorten the life of a cold.
Healthy fats like omega-3s (including EPA/DHA), MCTs (Medium Chain Triglycerides), CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid), GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid), and monounsaturates have been shown to support immunity.
We often associate protein with muscle, but did you know that protein is critical for a strong immune system. Our immune cells require amino acids sourced from protein for their production and function.
Fruits and vegetables are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients, many of which have been shown to support immunity.
