Immune System Support

In addition to healthy lifestyle and behavior practices, certain supplements may be used to support our immune systems. For example, Vitamin C may help prevent viral, bacterial and other infections by shortening the duration of colds and acting as a natural antihistamine and anti-inflammatory. Vitamin D is one of the most important immune system-strengthening nutrients that can reduce the risk of colds and flu; this should be taken on a regular basis. Zinc can help reduce the number of infections and the duration of the common cold when taken within 24 hours of onset.
