Immune System Supplements

An apple a day may not be enough to keep the doctor away. In an ideal world, we'd all maintain a balance, nutrient-rich diet brimming with fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and proteins, and wouldn't need to take immune system supplements. 

However, not only do most of us fail to hit our five plus a day, but we also encounter situations like physical stress or health issues that deplete us of those vital minerals and vitamins we need to maintain a healthy immune system. New Zealand is also at a disadvantage as alot of our essential minerals are depleted in our soils. Here at healthy.co.nz we provide a range of supplements to boost immunity and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Brown our range of immune system supplements below.

Importance of a Healthy Immune System

The immune system is crucial to a healthy lifestyle; it fights off disease-carrying germs and bacteria that enter the body. Our environment contains many infectious microbial agents, including viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. These can cause pathological damage if they multiply unchecked; however, most infections are of limited duration in immune-competent individuals. This is due to the individual's immune system, which controls infectious agents.

Vitamins and Minerals You Should be Taking to Boost your Immune System

Immune system supplements can help fill in the gaps in your diet to ensure you maintain a healthy immune system. Here are a few essential vitamins and minerals that can boost your immunity.

Vitamin C

Humans cannot manufacture Vitamin C, nor is it stored in the body. Therefore, it must be replenished continuously. Our immune system is strengthened by vitamin c, which is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and powerful immune system supporter. When we are infected or stressed, our bodies utilise it rapidly, meaning that it is vital that we replenish it often through supplements.

Zinc

Zinc is an essential mineral for boosting immunity. It aids in healthy wounds, promotes respiratory health, is crucial for male sexual health, and is a powerful ally in the battle against illnesses. It's especially crucial for children since it promotes healthy development.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D, also known as the sunshine vitamin, is quite hard to come by during the colder winter months when the sun spends most of its day hiding behind the clouds, increasing the likelihood of us being vitamin D deficient. The benefits of this vitamin include boosting immunity and mood and keeping bones strong and healthy. Since vitamin D is only found in a few foods and is hard to come by in the winter months, taking a dietary supplement will ensure you don't become deficient.
