Optimizing Your Immune Health
Most people know the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle but may not recognize the profound effect daily choices have on immune function and disease susceptibility. The foundation for building robust health is to eat a health affirming diet, exercise, sleep well and enough, and minimize the impact of stress. Maintaining an ideal weight and avoiding exposure to toxins is also critical.Specific nutrients and supplements have been shown to support a healthy immune system and dampen inflammation.* Nutrients that can support immune balance include zinc, selenium, N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), and vitamins A, C, & D. If you take PhytoSynergy Multi – 2 tablets per day, you may want to add extra vitamin C – 1000 mg once or twice per day and NAC 1000 to 1800 mg per day. Your Vitamin D3 dosage should be based on lab results (ideal is 40-70 ng/ml) and monitored by your healthcare provider. For more targeted support Immune Active by Metagenics provides high potency vitamin C and zinc and features quercetin, NAC, and EGCG to help support a healthy immune system and support antioxidant processes.*
Natural substances and botanicals that have been shown to support optimal immune health include mushrooms, licorice (Glycyrrhiza sp), elderberry (Sambucus nigra), Echinacea purpurea, and Astragalus. These botanicals are found in the Ortho Molecular Products Viracid, and Mt. Peak Nutritional's Chronic Immune or Acute Immune Formulas.
Supplements should be used in addition to, not in place of, an exceptionally healthy diet and lifestyle and good personal hygiene. There are no shortcuts.
