Strengthen Immune System

Eating healthy foods like vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats is a great place to start in strengthening your immune system. Managing stress hormones with physical activity and adequate sleep can also enhance immunity and lower your risk of illness

A healthy immune system protects the body from everything from the common cold to more dangerous viruses and infections and allows the body to respond to and heal from chronic diseases and trauma. Many essential nutrients go into the body's immune response functioning optimally. When even a healthy diet cannot provide all these nutrients, supplements can help to boost immunity to its full potential.

Supplements to help boost your Immune System

Brighter Life Nutrition Combo

Vitamin D is an essential nutrient that is both made by the body in response to sunlight and can be consumed. It is found as a fat-soluble vitamin in some types of fish, egg yolks, and some vegetables. As a supplement, it is typically called vitamin D3. Taking this supplement along with vitamin K2 has even better results as they work together to increase calcium absorption and moderate where that calcium is delivered. Vitamin D has a stimulating effect on the innate immune system by increasing antimicrobial responses, and can also have a suppressive effect on the adaptive immune system by regulating both T and B cell response to invaders.

Another essential nutrient that is necessary for a strong immune system is zinc. It works within all parts of immune function to increase communication between the adaptive and innate immune systems, facilitate a healthy inflammatory response, and increase the production of protective cells.

A large part of the immune system is built in the gut, made up of strong “good” bacteria that keeps foreign, or “bad,” bacteria from being able to take up space and overwhelm the body. Supplementing with probiotics or bio-cultures helps populate this good bacteria within the gut, strengthening the immune system and keeping the body functioning smoothly.

Turmeric Curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory, especially when taken with black pepper and ginger, which boost its bioavailability. Many infections and autoimmune conditions cause damage by increasing inflammation either generally or in specific body systems. The compounds in turmeric work to reduce inflammation while also stimulating immune cells to attack the foreign cells causing the inflammation.

Omega 3, 2000mg Super Strength Fish Oil - 300 Softgels

The polyunsaturated fatty acids found in omega 3s have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. The body needs a balance between the different types of omega fatty acids for optimal health in many systems, but most diets contain a significantly higher amount of omega 6s. Supplementing with omega 3s can provide the body with the necessary balance to increase immune function.

Super Strength Cranberry Probiotic Complex

Cranberries contain a high dose of vitamin C - essential for immune health - as well as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties to help the body fight off germs that cause disease. Taken as a concentrated supplement instead of the whole berry or juice, more of the benefits of cranberries can be absorbed without added sugars.

Super B Vitamin Complex

There are 8 different B vitamins, all of which are included in most B-complex supplements. In a well balanced diet, these vitamins are mostly found in animal products, as well as certain plant foods, particularly dark greens and mushrooms. Vegetarian and vegan diets are generally lacking in B vitamins and it is recommended to supplement those diets with a B-complex. The body does not store these vitamins so they need to be included in a diet or supplemented daily. B vitamins are essential for many biological and cognitive functions. Vitamin B deficiency has been linked with weakened immune system function.

One of the best ways to boost immune function is to propagate and maintain a diverse and healthy gut biome. Eating a diverse diet with lots of plants and fermented foods, being aware of and reducing the consumption of added sugars, artificial flavouring, and processed foods, and supplementing additional nutrients as needed are excellent ways of keeping the good bacteria within the body well-populated and thriving. High-quality, bioavailable supplements make achieving this health goal easier than ever.
