Immune Boosting – What you need to know
Every year we are inundated with immune boosting ads. What to use and why you should use it, but more
often than not, we are only provided with the basic information and the very important details slip through the
cracks. These details could determine whether the product is truly suitable for you. Here are a few tips we have
that the advertisements won’t necessarily include:
Immune Boosting Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamin C is not the only ingredient that boosts your immune system, and while it is a golden oldie, you need to
make sure that it is a high quality purchase. Low quality Vitamin C’s could cause irritation in the stomach,
nausea or simply not be absorbed by the gut. Look for a non-irritant form of Vitamin C and stick to the
There are also other vitamins and minerals that work to boost your immune system like Zinc, Vitamin D,
Vitamin B, Selenium, Elderberry Extract and so much more. While the main function of these vitamins and
minerals aren’t necessarily to boost your immune system, it is one of the many benefits they do offer. It is a
good idea to take a combination of these vitamins and minerals instead of just Vitamin C as it will all help to
give your immune system better support.
Probiotics are also a great way to boost your immune system. These are healthy bacteria that help to ward off
diseases and improve the absorption of crucial nutrients. If your gut is compromised, you can take the best
supplements, but the absorption of these supplements won’t be optimised. Taking a good quality probiotic will
help to balance your bacterial flora and optimise any vitamin and mineral (whether in supplement or food)
So, your immune boosting efforts are not won by just taking a Vitamin C supplement. You need to look at the
quality Vitamin C you are taking, the success rate thereof, possibly combining it with other vitamins and
minerals and definitely including a probiotic in your daily supplement intake.
