The truth is we can have the healthiest diet on the planet earth, and still be lacking the essential nutrients needed for our health and well being.
If you don’t believe me just look at how our soil quality has degraded over the years, and the negative impact it’s had on our food's nutrient value.
These nutrient deficiencies in our diet can especially impact our immune health…
But you don’t have to just accept these nutrient deficiencies, and a weaker immune system…
This is where using smart supplementation can fill those nutrient gaps, and help bulletproof your immune system.
Here’s some of the key vitamins and minerals to supplement with:
1. Vitamin D3 and Magnesium:
When Vitamin D3 and Magnesium are combined they have a unique synergy that lowers inflammatory proteins, and increases anti-inflammatory proteins.
Over 50% of the population worldwide is deficient in Vitamin D3…
Not to mention Magnesium it crucial to multiple chemical processes that allow the immune system to fight off colds and flus.
These supplements are stronger together than they are on their own when it comes to bulletproofing your immune system.
Zinc helps the immune system communicate, and protect tissue barriers that prevent pathogens from entering the body.
There’s multiple studies that have shown Zinc reduces the time of common colds, flus and can decrease the length of acute respiratory tract infections.
Side note: Excessive Zinc consumption can interfere with copper absorption, and have a negative impact on immune function so zinc and copper balance is important.
3. Vitamin C:
Vitamin C the most common vitamin people use to helps with colds, flus and protects against the pathogens that get us sick.
This important vitamin enhances the function of immune system cells and keeps the immune system healthy by replacing old cells with new healthy ones.
Supplementing with Vitamin C has shown in multiple studies to reduce how long common colds and flus last.
In the next blog post I’m going to share the lesser known supplements that very few people are talking about.
