Premium, Organic Ingredients
• Vitamin C is one of the leading vitamins for immune support.**
• Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is the form of vitamin D naturally produced in the body from sunlight. It’s a potent and active form of vitamin D.
• Zinc and selenium are essential trace minerals in the body. These trace minerals play a role in hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body.** Zinc is important for immune function.**
• Reishi, shiitake, and maitake organic mushrooms have been traditionally used for thousands of years in China and Japan because of their known beneficial properties.**
Supporting a Balanced, Immune System
Your body’s immune system is comprised of several organs, cells and tissues all working together. It’s exactly that – a system.
To function at its best, your immune system requires balance. Many factors, whether positive or negative, can influence the immune system. It’s why good nutrition is central to a balanced immune system.
Aside from achieving good nutrition through a balanced diet and supplementation, other healthy habits to support a strong, healthy immune system include getting regular physical activity, controlling stress, and getting adequate levels of sleep.
Nutrients for Supporting Your Immune System
The role of micronutrients in our diet, namely vitamins and minerals, is key to helping maintain the health of your immune system.
Vitamin C – a Potent Free Radical Scavenger
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin well-known for supporting the immune system.** The main reason is likely due to its key role in the proper functioning of white blood cells—vital components of your immune system.** The vitamin is also a potent antioxidant for neutralizing free radicals.**
Free radicals are unstable compounds that can occur naturally in our bodies as by-products of metabolism. They are also produced from environmental factors such as pollution, car exhaust, and smoking.
Vitamin C must be obtained from dietary sources such as citrus fruits and vegetables, but it can also be provided through supplementation.
Vitamin D – the Sunshine Vitamin
Vitamin D received its nickname because it is naturally produced in the body from sun exposure, but that’s not all Vitamin d has to offer. While Vitamin D’s role in maintaining a healthy immune system is not as well-known as Vitamin C, it is just as important.**
This vitamin-like hormone plays a role in helping to regulate T and B-lymphocytes.** The majority of us are likely to have inadequate levels of vitamin D due to a variety of factors such as insufficient sun exposure and limited quantities of the nutrient found in food sources. Because overexposure to the sun is associated with other health risks, vitamin D supplements can be a positive addition and can contribute to overall intake.
