There’s no denying that strong immune health is at the forefront of everybody’s mind lately.
We all want to protect ourselves and our loved ones against germs and illness, and of course one of the best ways to do this is by boosting the body's natural defenses.
Your immune system is a highly complex and intelligent network within your body that protects you from illness and disease by recognizing and eliminating harmful intruders.
This vital system of checks and balances naturally deteriorates as we age, inevitably leaving us more prone to the many health complications caused by a weak immune system.
As complicated as it may be, your immune system really doesn’t ask for much - It’s actually much easier than you may think!
Adequate water, sleep, nutrition, and exercise are the key foundational pillars for maintaining your body’s natural defenses.
Toxins like excessive alcohol and sugary foods, as well as stress, chronic sleep loss, and pre-existing conditions, can all wreak havoc on your immune system.
That’s why consistently making smart lifestyle choices is the fundamental keystone of a strong immune system.
There's no replacement for a healthy lifestyle and without extending care to yourself first, it will be very difficult for you to get the full benefits of immune-boosting supplements.
But with that being said, there are certainly a handful of vitamins, minerals, and herbs that have been shown to be particularly effective when it comes to building a strong immune foundation.
With the added levels of stress and financial pressure facing many of us over the past few months, we are in more need of immune support than ever.
Our Top 3 Supplement
Recommendations Right Now
Here are our team’s top three supplement recommendations for maximum immune system support that we always take daily...
1. An Immunity-Targeted Multivitamin
2. Probiotics With Immune-Supporting Strains
3. A Green Superfood Nutrition Blend
We know you might be wondering what makes these three supplements in particular so important that we’d consider them daily essentials right now? Let’s have a closer look...
Firstly, a high-quality multivitamin can help prevent against nutritional deficiencies that harm the immune system over time. Certain vitamins and minerals, like those listed below, have been clinically proven to be highly essential for your immune system, such as vitamins C, D3, E, and B6.
- Vitamin E: This powerful antioxidant can be found in foods like spinach, nuts, and seeds. It’s famously known for its powerful ability to help keep the immune system strong and healthy.
Vitamin B6: This vitamin supports crucial biochemical reactions in the immune system and can be found in foods like salmon, chickpeas, many greens, and chicken.
- Vitamin C: One of the most well-known and important immune system boosters, vitamin C is vital to healthy immune responses, because your body doesn’t produce or store it naturally. Natural sources include oranges, strawberries, kale, spinach, grapefruit, and bell pepper.
TIP: Be sure to look for a multivitamin that is free from synthetic fillers or trendy additives, as well as one that is easy-to-swallow and not too large in size. A good quality multivitamin may support overall health, prevent nutrient deficiencies, and help keep you feeling your best.
Let’s face it… It’s almost impossible to meet all of your vitamin and mineral goals each day, especially as we age and our ability to absorb nutrients decreases. This is where a quality multivitamin can act like a nutritional safety net to help keep us feeling our best.
Next, a probiotic with immune-supporting strains is our second top recommendation. There have been many probiotic strains, such Lactobacillus acidophilus LA-14, that have been clinically shown to be most effective for supporting the immune system.
Why is good gut health so essential to your immune system? Your gut houses over 70% of your immune system’s cells and therefore is intrinsically tied to most major health systems in your body.
GREEN SUPERFOOD BLENDAnd lastly, our third recommendation is a green superfood nutrition blend. Adding an alkaline green powder to your daily routine may provide you with a long list of benefits, with immune support being at the forefront.
Since most of us don't get enough dark, leafy green superfoods on a daily basis, upping your intake of daily greens can help fill nutritional gaps, provide overall balance to the body with alkalizing vitamins and minerals, and deliver the tools your immune system needs to function at an optimal level.
