Vitamins and Your Immune System

In times like today, we at Freedom Home Care know how hard we all work to be as healthy as possible. Yes, it is true you cannot control your immune system. However, you can take certain steps to ensure that your immune system is boosted. This limits the number of times you get sick.

Boosting your immune system is surprisingly simple and affordable. When following a routine, you can better your body’s natural resistance and improve your immune system in many ways. We as your home health care provider recommend you read up on supplements and vitamin research to know what exactly you are putting in your body.

Long-term approaches tend to work the best, and in our opinion, are the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. Who wouldn’t want to be feeling their best every day?

Our body’s immune system is a very complex system of cells and biological responses tied into the entire body. It ranges from digestion in your stomach to your brain’s chemistry. This complex system needs to have lots of vitamins and minerals for you to be feeling your best.

When your body lacks adequate nutrition your immune system starts to weaken. Nutrients and micro-nutrients like vitamins b12, b6, zinc, and selenium all work to support immunity within your body.

So what can you add to your diet to improve your immune system? Your body needs adequate levels of Vitamin B, C, D, E, Folic Acid, Iron, Selenium, and Zinc. Taking daily supplements or vitamins is the simplest way to improve your immune system.

Eating fruits and vegetables that are rich in color is also a great way to boost your body’s immune system. Recent studies have shown that the average adult should consume 2 ½ cups of vegetables and 2 cups of fruit a day at the bare minimum.

Healthy habits are the foundation of your body’s long-term wellness. Making sure you have the right vitamins for your individual’s needs is an important role in keeping your body healthy during this pandemic and for the future. Exercising regularly will also go a long way in keeping your body healthy from infections and viruses.
