5 Best Immune-Enhancing Supplements
COVID-19 is trying hard to be in our rearview mirrors.
Still, regardless of COVID-19’s current status, you should still be taking active steps to strengthen your immune system.
Doing so will help ensure that you prevent any kind of infection—from the common cold to COVID and everything in between.
Here are five all-start supplements for boosting immune health.
In an ideal world, we wouldn’t need supplements. We would get everything we need from our diet and environment to support a vibrant immune system.
But since that’s not the reality for most people, here are key supplements to help fill in the gaps caused by modern living.
Curcumin is the key compound found in the spice turmeric—and it’s a powerhouse for immune health. Curcumin combats inflammation and improves gut health. By doing so, it can fight pain, while also blocking the underlying causes of autoimmune conditions, heart disease, diabetes, and more.
If you’re looking for a powerful all-in-one, this would be it.
Vitamin C has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it helps heal skin wounds, and it is essential for immune health.
It is well known for reducing the severity and duration of the common cold.
Your body uses up vitamin C during times of stress. And since your body doesn’t make C on its own, it’s especially important to ensure your body has an adequate supply to draw from… whether you get it through foods (like oranges or spinach) or from supplements.
Low vitamin D levels have been found in just about every condition you can think of. More recently with COVID-19, low levels were associated with more severe disease, and even mortality.
Plug directly into your body’s D source by spending time in the sun. For an added boost, consider taking supplements until your blood levels are restored.
This is a good one to have on hand. Studies show that if you take zinc at the first sign of a cold, it can help knock it out faster.
It’s also critical for wound healing, and can help prevent infections like pneumonia.
This natural remedy has become popular recently, and for good reason. Because it is loaded with antioxidants, elderberry supercharges your immune system by fighting the free radicals that damage it.
You can purchase supplements, but if you can find someone who makes local elderberry syrup, that’s even better.
P.S. I recently wrote about two other steps you should take to boost your immune system. Read about them, right here.
