Supplements for Immune Protection
The buzz word for your best virus-busting-game-plan right now is ... SUPPLEMENTS!
We probably don't need to tell you that your gut is the absolute cornerstone for your immunity. Additionally we would like to provide you with a simple list of supplements you can take to ensure that your immune functionality is performing at its peak:
Vitamin C 1000mg 2-3 times a day, depending on age and immune strength. A powerful antioxidant, that will help to strengthen your body’s natural defenses and encourages white blood cell production.
Vitamin D3 5000iu per day for 2 weeks, then 2000iu per day. An essential component for health which many of us lack, this modulates the immune response. If you don't have enough immune strength, you can’t generate a strong response to infection.
Magnesium 400mg per day in citrate, relate, malate or chloride form. This mineral really enhances your cellular function, providing a protective role against allergic, fungal and viral infections.
Zinc 20mg per day. This supplement helps create white blood cells and reduces your risk of infection.
Selenium 100mcg per day. Selenium plays a critical role in inflammation and immune response. You can also just eat 5-7 Brazil nuts a day instead!
Astragalus 500-1000mg per day in capsule form. This is a proven immune adaptogen that supports & controls the T-cells and helps to drain the lymph system of any viral or toxic load.
Probiotics daily with food to support your immunity by colonizing your gut with a strong biome.
Propolis can be sprayed into your throat at the first sign of irritation, scratchiness or inflammation and repeat regularly. This will significantly help with your sore throat very rapidly.
Oscillococcinum at the first signs of a viral infection – shivers, aches, headache, sneezing & coughing. This is well proven as an effective natural remedy for viral infections.
All the above mentioned supplements are in stock and they can be ordered via the clinic.
