Powerful Immune Boosting Supplements

So, we have heard a lot about the immune system during this latest viral pandemic but not a lot about how the recommended supplements work.

These supplements are Zinc, Vitamin D, Vitamin C & Quercitin.

If you think back the last 15-20 years you could find zinc lozenges in any drug store with the instructions to dissolve them on your tongue if you feel a cold or sore throat starting. 

The reason for this is that zinc has been shown to interfere with viral replication.

The downside of zinc is it has a relatively hard time absorbing through the cell membrane into the interior of the cell to do its work. This is where the benefit of Quercitin comes in. It lends a helping hand to the zinc making it easier to enter the cell.

Vitamin D is a fat-soluble substance that has properties of both a hormone and a vitamin. The major function of it is to maintain normal calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood.

This, of course, has everything to do with bone health and strength. However, more recent studies (over 500 of them) have revealed how Vit D triggers the body’s immune cells to produce antibodies to fight against invading organisms.

So, what it does is increase the overall strength of the immune system.

Vitamin C has long been known to help attain and maintain the ability of the immune system to fight off infection. It does this, in part, by promoting the generation of hydrogen peroxide by certain white blood cells. This creates a very strong anti-viral effect.

Vitamin C also plays an integral part in the regeneration of damaged tissue by promoting the generation of collagen cells. 

These are some reasons why the four supplements mentioned above are essential in preventing the development of infection even if you get exposed.
