Immune Support

Your immune system takes care of you, but have you ever wondered how to take care of it? We all know that a healthy diet and lifestyle play a part, but what other options may help with immune support? Fortunately, there are several micronutrients that may help with immune support.

How The Immune System Works

We often refer to the immune system as one thing, which is true, but in the same way that a mechanical wristwatch, with all of its gears and interlocking parts, is one thing. The immune system is astonishingly and brilliantly complex, but can be thought of simply as three layers of protection:

  • barriers like skin and mucous membranes
  • innate immunity that we are born with
  • adaptive immunity that develops afterexposure

Supporting Healthy Immunity

The Healthy Core Support Kit contains vitamin, mineral, and bioflavonoid immune support.* Vitamin C may help to support all three parts of immunity—skin and mucous membrane barriers, innate immunity, and adaptive immunity.* Because of its role in collagen production, it helps to keep skin and mucous membranes healthy and intact.* It may also help with antioxidant support and protection from free radicals.*1 Vitamin D receptors exist on many immune cells of both innate and adaptive immunity, and studies have shown that maintaining normal vitamin D levels supports healthy immunity.* In addition, vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) helps with the absorption of dietary calcium,contributing to strongbones and teeth.*2 Vitamin K2 (MK-7) works synergistically with vitamin D to help support bone health.*Zinc supports both innate and adaptive immunity, and studies have shown that maintaining normal zinc levels supports healthy immunity.* Zinc may also help with antioxidant support,*4 and the bisglycinate form offers superior bioavailability.*5 Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that may help with antioxidant support and has synergistic effects with both vitamin C and Zinc.*6,7 It may boost the effectiveness of vitamin C and may help zinc enter the cells, where it can do the most good for immune support.*6,7
