Vitamin A is a micronutrient that is crucial for maintaining vision, promoting growth and development, and protecting epithelium and mucus integrity in the body. Vitamin A is known as an anti-inflammation vitamin because of its critical role in enhancing immune function.
Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier function against pathogens and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin, thereby potentially protecting against environmental oxidative stress.
As the vitamin D receptor is expressed on immune cells (B cells, T cells and antigen presenting cells) and these immunologic cells are all are capable of synthesizing the active vitamin D metabolite, vitamin D has the capability of acting in an autocrine manner in a local immunologic milieu. Vitamin D can modulate the innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity as well as an increased susceptibility to infection.
Vitamin E, a potent lipid-soluble antioxidant, found in higher concentration in immune cells compared to other cells in blood, is one of the most effective nutrients known to modulate immune function.
Thiamin plays a vital role in the growth and function of various cells. Only small amounts are stored in the liver, so a daily intake of thiamin is needed.
Riboflavin is best known for its ability to help the body process proteins, fats and carbohydrates. But it can also boost the activity of certain immune cells.
Niacin helps the immune system by reducing inflammation and damage to the lungs as well as other organs.
Vitamin B6 is responsible for producing white blood cells and T cells, which regulate immune responses. Vitamin B6 also helps the body make the protein interleukin-2 to direct white blood cell activity
Cell-mediated immunity is especially affected by folate deficiency: the blastogenic response of T lymphocytes to certain mitogens is decreased in folate-deficient humans and animals, and the thymus is preferentially altered. It also boosts the immune system and helps treat depression.
Vitamin B12 plays a crucial role in the proper functioning of immune system. Methionine synthase, which uses methyl cobalamin as a cofactor, is essential for the synthesis of purines and pyrimidines in all cells, including fast-dividing immune cells.
Biotin is needed for white blood cell development and its deficiency is linked to impaired immune function and an increased risk of infection.
Pantothenic Acid Reduces Bacterial Growth via Regulating Innate and Adaptive Immunity. Pantothenic acid improves surgical wounds healing with moisturizing and skin barrier enhancing potential. Its deficiency leads to reduced cortisol production, increased arthritic pain, myalgia, fatigue, headache, depression, insomnia, and widespread "proinflammatory" effects on the immune system.
11 Critical Minerals – A mineral is a chemical element required as an essential nutrient by organisms to perform functions necessary for life.
Calcium controls whether immune cells can use the nutrients needed to fuel their multiplication into a cellular army designed to fight invading viruses.
Iron enhances the growth and virulence of pathogens; at the same time, it is essential for the activation and proliferation of immune cells. Therefore, iron deficiency negatively affects the pathogen and the host, albeit more so in the case of host immunity.
Phosphorus contributes substantially to skeletal development, mineral metabolism, energy metabolism, cellular signaling and the stabilization of cell membranes especially in the intestines thus an important function in immune health.
Iodine also helps regulate the immune system as it helps fight infections. In addition, iodine can enhance the immune function by helping remove both toxic chemical toxins and biological toxins. Additionally, iodine is effective in suppressing autoimmunity which keeps immunity in check.
Magnesium keeps the immune system strong, helps strengthen muscles and bones, and supports many body functions from cardiac functions to brain functions. This is also a key hormone regulator for women. Low magnesium levels can contribute to PMS and menopausal symptoms.
Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly
The immune system requires copper to perform several functions. The main function is with T cell proliferation and a deficiency of Copper has shown T cell concentration levels drop.
Manganese helps your body utilize several vitamins, such as choline, thiamine, and vitamins C and E, and ensures proper liver function. Additionally, it works as a cofactor, or helper, in development, reproduction, energy production, immune response and the regulation of brain activity.
Chromium has long been associated with heart health. More recent studies have found that this trace mineral also benefits your immunity. By enhancing your immune system function by several different mechanisms, chromium can give you the immune boost you need to fight infection and disease.
Studies have found that once the immune system has been activated, chromium increases the proliferation of T and B lymphocytes. These are the white blood cells charged with protecting the body from invading pathogens. Your body is constantly exposed to pathogens from food as well as the external environment. Increased levels of these immune cells provide a stronger immune defense against foreign microorganisms.
Potassium, has a balancing effect on sodium. Together, they regulate blood pressure, nerve signals, and the immune system.
Specifically, potassium regulates the membrane potential, or the difference between the electrical charge inside and outside a cell. The membrane potential not only allows cells to stay powered (like a battery), but also allows for the transmission of signals within and between cells. These signals, in turn, help direct immune activit
Chloride is an important prerequisite for the innate immune response to support key cellular function.
Glutamine represents about 60 percent of all the free amino acids in your system, making it the most important bodybuilding material coursing through your veins. It provides fuel for your brain, muscles, intestinal lining and white blood cells.
Your intestinal lining actually uses Glutamine as fuel to create a strong surface for digestion and absorption. Supplementing with Glutamine is the most effective treatment to heal the gut lining for those suffering from leaky gut, malabsorption, or inflammatory bowel disease (IBS, Crohn’s, Ulcerative colitis). It tightens the open junctions that occur in a patient with these diagnoses and triggers them to create more mucus needed for proper digestion.
Glutamine is also important for the immune system in two ways. First the fuel it provides for White Blood Cell growth can help the body fight and prevent disease and illness. Also, by helping to replace the intestinal lining which houses key immune molecules called immunoglobulin. Feeding it with Glutamine allows for a stronger immune system to protect us from toxins and infections.
Whey protein is a well-known, complete protein source that provides all the essential amino acids our body needs. Whey proteins also contain individual proteins such as Lactoferrin and immunoglobulins that have immune-enhancing bioactivity.
Green Tea (EGCG)
Does green tea help gut bacteria?
Negative changes in the gut microbiome have been previously linked to obesity, and green tea has been shown to promote healthy bacteria. Catechins, anti-inflammatory polyphenols found in green tea, have been linked to anti-cancer activity and lower risk of heart and liver disease.
Bacillus Coagulans is a beneficial bacterium that promotes health and protects against infections. It is used to guard against gastrointestinal side effects and to relieve symptoms of colitis, Chron’s disease, irritable bowel disease and leaky gut syndrome. It also helps boost immunity by staving off virus induced respiratory infections, such as the common cold and the flu.
