It often starts with a sore throat, followed by a cold and cough – the common cold, a constant companion for many people, especially in winter and often beyond. Corona virus infection also places increased demands on your immune system. In this article we explain how you can effectively fight off infections with the right micronutrient combinations to support the immune system!
One area of health on which turmeric has a traditionally known effect is the immune system. It is now scientifically proven that over 80% of the immune system is localized in the digestive tract. Among people in many Asian countries who frequently consume turmeric that food flavored with turmeric protects against bacterial and viral infections of the digestive tract, diseases of the digestive system such as indigestion and irritable bowel syndrome. With high-quality supplements derived from turmeric, you too will notice how your defenses have strengthened after some time.
In the human immune system, iron plays an important role in many cell biological processes. If our iron supply is not right, the immune system cannot work optimally either. Even if iron deficiency is not the cause but the consequence or a co-factor of a disease, iron deficiency therapy can have a positive effect on disease management and prognosis. Quality products with iron from plant extracts and vitamin C are the best combination to strengthen your immune system and maintain your defenses in the long term. The reason for this is that vitamin C additionally increases iron absorption in the intestine.
Vitamin C is considered THE vitamin that protects against colds and infections. Since vitamin C also contributes to immune defense through its free-radical scavenging properties, many doctors or nutritionists recommend a higher intake in case of infections. However, since vitamin C preparations are a dime a dozen, and only a few of them are any good, pay attention to quality when buying them. We recommend that you choose a product that is based on the pure substance principle and therefore contains only active ingredients and no excipients, colorants, preservatives, technological additives such as binding or separating agents or hidden additives. This way you make sure that you do something good for yourself and your body.
Zinc is a trace element, which is given only in very small quantities. Depending on age, gender and body size, only a few grams of zinc are present in the human body.
However, the body should constantly keep this amount in stock so that all processes can run smoothly. Unfortunately, however, the human body is not able to store zinc permanently. On the other hand, it cannot produce zinc itself. We must therefore constantly supply zinc – through a balanced diet and, if necessary, through high-quality dietary supplements.
What does our body actually need zinc for?
- Cell division and cell regeneration
- Growth and regeneration in skin and hair
- Metabolism for protein, fat and carbohydrates
- Production of numerous enzymes and hormones
- Excretion of carbon dioxide via the lungs
- Sperm production
- Immune system support
Omega-3 fatty acids
In addition to their health-promoting effects on the cardiovascular system, omega-3 fatty acids also play an important role in immune defense: they provide the basic building blocks for inflammation-dissolving substances known as resolvins. These promote the subsiding of inflammatory reactions, for example as a result of microbial infections. Highly concentrated capsules containing both EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are our recommendation here. When buying, you should additionally make sure that they are made from quality-tested, highly concentrated fish oil concentrate.
For optimal care, we recommend combination products that provide a 24-hour, seven-day basic supply. These provide your body with vitamins, minerals and valuable vital substances on a daily basis, and support the maintenance of vitality and well-being, thus contributing to nutritional support, especially during physical and mental stress, as they contain a basic supply of the entire vitamin spectrum, essential trace elements and valuable vital substances.
