Vitamins That Will Boost Your Immune System

Aug 17, 2007
Our immunity system is nothing less that the shield protecting us from legions of enemies, - viruses, infections, hostile bacteria, microbes. Once this shield is broken, or too thin, or shrunk, we are in danger of falling victim to those hostile forces preying for us. While the immunity critically depends on a multitude of nutrient elements, we must know at least the mist basic of them:

Vitamin C is probably the most fundamental nutrient which guards our immunity system. A diet poor in Vitamin C is a poor diet. The most prominent natural sources of the Vitamin are fruits and vegetables, and specifically designed supplements are widely available. Biological immunity depends upon the number of the white blood cells in the immune system, and their ability to successfully identify, recognize and neutralize viruses; Vitamin C improves this function of our organisms by helping the production of the white blood cells.

It also has a role in keeping the blood pressure from rising too high and to dangerously high levels which can lead to even more severe problems. Arterial health and the maintenance of blood vessels are also beneficiaries of the Vitamin C effects. Additionally, the Vitamin is reported to lower the risk of cancerous developments.

Several servings of fruits and vegetables daily will provide a sufficient amount of Vitamin C; if taken in supplements, the Vitamin in-take should be stretched over the day rather than concentrated in a single doze.

Vitamin E: a potent anti-oxidant working best in pair with Vitamin D. It stimulates production of guard-cells in body that attack harmful elements like bacteria and cancerous developments. Vitamin E has positive effects for the immunity system of senile people. The overall effects of it on the arterial system and blood pressure are to noted as well; some studies involving large numbers of patients have shown that Vitamin E can lower risk of hear attack by as much as 50%.

Some fruits and vegetables, but particularly seeds, oils and grains, will supply you with the needed amount of Vitamin E. While the recommended adult daily in-take is around 200 milligrams, it maybe problematic to keep your diet sufficiently supplied with the Vitamin without taking advantage of concentrated artificially produced supplements.

Generally, the more you harm your body by pollution, smoking, alcohol, etc, the bigger amount of anti-oxidants you need to undo the damage.
