In this weeks video health tip, Dr. Samir Hajariwala, director of Crossroads Chiropractic, takes a look at supplements that can help support your immune system.
Since none of us can completely eliminate our risk of getting COVID-19, one thing we can do is eat as healthily as possible.
Since your immune system is responsible for fighting viruses and bacteria; research shows improving nutrition helps support optimal immune function.
Although you can get most of the immune boosting nutrients from a well-balanced diet; here is a list of some nutritional supplements that can also help support your immune system:
Multivitamin/Mineral: This is the foundation and a good way to cover the basic vitamins and minerals your body needs for day-to-day functions.
Vitamin D3: Adequate vitamin D status is critical for optimal immune function and cannot be achieved without supplementation during the winter months.
Buffered Vitamin C: Vitamin C provides antioxidant protection to the immune system.
Zinc citrate: Zinc Citrate is a powerful immune-supporting nutrient also found in seafood (especially oysters), red meat, and pumpkin seeds.
Probiotics: Probiotics help give your immune system a boost and inhibit the growth of harmful gut bacteria.
Fish Oil (Arctic Cod Liver Oil): In addition to the good fats, this cod liver oil contains additional vitamins A and D for added immune protection.
Before investing in nutritional supplements it is important to learn about their potential benefits and risks, and speak to your healthcare provider to decide together what might be best for your overall health.
