Nutrition Supplements for a better Immune System.

Nutrition Supplements

1)     Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient that is essential for immune system health and function. Vitamin D boosts the pathogen-fighting abilities of monocytes and macrophages — white blood cells that play a key role in immune defense — and reduces inflammation, which aids immune response.

2)     Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that may help to boost the body’s natural defenses. Antioxidants are compounds that help the body’s immune system function better. They do so by defending cells from dangerous molecules known as free radicals.

3)     N-acetylcysteine
for decades, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a precursor to the antioxidant glutathione, has been used to loosen dense pulmonary mucus and treat acetaminophen overdose. Further, NAC can help the immune system, reduce inflammation, and inhibit viral replication.

4)     Zinc
Zinc is vital for immune cell production and communication, as well as for the inflammatory response. Zinc also helps to protect the body’s tissue defenses and keep foreign pathogens from entering.  A lack of this nutrient impairs your immune system’s ability to function properly, increasing your risk of infection and disease, including pneumonia.

5)     Resveratrol

Resveratrol aids in strengthening the body’s first line of defense. Gamma delta T cells are circulating immune cells, and resveratrol can help to boost their numbers and help to build immunity.

6)     Glutamine
The role of glutamine in the immune system is one of its most important functions. Immune cells, such as white blood cells and certain intestinal cells, depend on it for energy. As a result, glutamine is sometimes referred to as “immune system fuel.”
