Fungi, bacteria, viruses...it can be hard to keep all of the biological invaders straight. And what’s more, your body won’t be able to fight properly without a killer immune system (no pun intended).
With COVID-19 still looming and causing uncertainty, you can bet we are looking for any way to help our immune systems stay strong!
If you have been following our other blog posts, you’d know that at EZ Melts we have been obsessed with combining vitamins C, D3, and zinc!
Why take all of these minerals and vitamins if they all help the immune system? Isn’t that excessive? Nope. Here’s why:
When you are in working order and feeding your body what it needs, it utilizes proper amounts of all nutrients in synergy. No system in your body works alone, and no vitamin or mineral works alone either!
Here’s a recap of the importance of each:
Vitamin C: A powerful antioxidant that boosts your immune system response and fights free radicals which harm and age your skin.
Vitamin D: According to research, about 42% of Americans today are vitamin D deficient! Low levels of vitamin D are linked to out-of-whack autoimmune responses and lower immunity.
Zinc: Zinc is essential in aiding over 300 enzymes that exist to help with digestion, metabolism, nerve function and you guessed it: the immune system.
We know that these are incredibly stressful times. Being unsure of the world around us every day with the COVID-19 pandemic can be hard on us mentally and physically.
Stress has been known to raise cortisol levels, lower serotonin, and also is linked to a weaker immune system.
Seems ironic that the one thing we need right now, our immune system, is impacted negatively by worrying about our health.
Because of this, you should also consider L-Theanine. L-Theanine is a natural remedy for stress, because it increases levels of dopamine and serotonin without prescriptions or unnatural chemicals, helping you stay level and calm.
In order to have your entire immune system firing on all cylinders, it’s important to boost your immunity with a multitude of different vitamins and minerals. Don’t neglect them!
