Vitamins That Build Your Immune System

Vitamins That Build Your Immune System


In 2020, many of us increased our awareness for our immunity and how to help our body fight illnesses more efficiently. We are all looking for ways to naturally fight germs and feel the best we can.


Here are a handful of vitamins that help build our immunity and increase our bodies natural defenses. Each one of these vitamins can be found in food sources and can be eaten daily to increase our health and wellness!


Vitamin C


Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant and can strengthen your body’s natural defenses. Antioxidants boost your immune system and protect your body from free radicals, which can make you sick and cause disease. Many studies have shown that vitamin C can speed up recovery time and healing when used.


Natural sources of Vitamin C- Citrus fruit, peppers, strawberries, broccoli, brussel sprouts, potatoes


Zinc


Zinc is necessary for healthy immune cell function and building your immune system. Zinc is also a powerful antioxidant that fights stress on your body and cells. When you don’t have enough zinc, the cells that protect your body from viruses and bacteria, can’t function properly or do their job as well.


Natural sources of Zinc: Meat, Shellfish, Legumes, Seeds, Nuts, Dairy, Eggs, Whole Grains


Vitamin D


Vitamin D is helpful in many ways, like helping with depression and fighting disease which has been important during Covid-19. Not getting enough Vitamin D can increase your risk for sicknesses like the flu. Deficiency in Vitamin D can also increase autoimmunity and an increased susceptibility to infection.


Natural sources of Vitamin D: Fish, Milk, Mushrooms, Yogurt, Orange juice, eggs


Probiotics


Having a healthy gut is one of the best things we can do to keep our immune system strong. One of the main things probiotics do is help regulate the immune response and helps in prevention and the treatment of disease or illnesses.

We hope you stay healthy and safe!
