There’s no doubt that the old phrase ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ has some truth to it. Vitamins from fruit, vegetables, supplements, or even the sun, are essential for a well-functioning and effective immune system. If you’re looking to build up your immunity and improve your overall well-being, here is how four vitamins from our Immunity Plus Supplements that can help.
Vitamin C is one of the most important nutrients not just for your immune system, but your whole body. The vitamin is found in plenty of foods, such as citrus fruits, peppers and strawberries, and plays a crucial role in repairing muscles and other tissues and fighting free radicals which can damage cells. Studies have proven that vitamin C supplementation can have a significant positive impact on how your immune system works and may also reduce the duration of colds, especially in people who exercise regularly.
Vitamin D is found in some foods such as eggs, fish and mushrooms, however humans actually get most of their vitamin D from exposure to sunlight. In the darker winter months in Europe, most people don’t get enough vitamin D, therefore the NHS recommends supplementation to make up for this lack of sunlight. Vitamin D plays a critical role in supporting the immune system and strong evidence shows that supplementation can improve immunity by reducing risk of colds and flu.
Also known as pyridoxine, vitamin B6 is one of eight types of B vitamins - but what makes B6 stand out? The nutrient plays a key role in over 100 enzyme reactions, assisting the body in metabolising protein and fats for energy. A large study examining dietary intakes of vitamin B6 and levels in the blood found that those with the higher B6 levels were protected against inflammation, caused by an overactive immune system. Put simply, your immune system won’t be at its best without vitamin B6.
Found in sunflower seeds, avocado and broccoli, vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant. By assisting with the production of T cells (a type of white blood cell), the vitamin is crucial to an effective and efficient immune response. A lack of vitamin E may therefore impact the performance of your immune system.
Each of these vitamins play important roles in a healthy immune system. Sons’ Immunity Plus Supplements are an easy way to get those vitamins into your body and so that you can keep your immune system performing at its very best.
