- Vitamin C
We will address the What, Why, and How about simple minerals that you can add into your routine to give your immune system the best fighting chance against viruses.
Boosting your immune system may be more important than you think. Ultimately, preventing serious illnesses from what may seem like your “typical cold” will help you recover faster, stay out of the hospital, reduce lost time of work, and reduce transmission of more serious illnesses.
- Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect your cells against the effects of free radicals. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Vit C boosts antioxidant levels, lowers blood pressure, protects against gout attacks, improves iron absorption, boosts immunity, and reduces heart disease and dementia risk.
- Zinc helps with your immune system and metabolism function. It plays an important role in wound healing and your taste and smell. Some research finds that taking Zinc within 24 hours of cold symptoms can lessen the severity and time of the cold virus.
- Magnesium can be of benefit to everyone. It not only aids in muscle recovery, it helps protect the body from infection, supports nerve function and boosts energy production. Chronically low levels can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis.
These are just a few great minerals that help support our body’s way to fight infection naturally and on its own. They are all vital in the growth, development and repair of all body tissues and play an important role year round, not just during cold and flu season.
These minerals come in many different forms, oral tablets, capsules, powders, and intravenous.
When we are looking at the gold standard for vitamin and mineral delivery directly into our cells, Intravenous (IV) therapy method is the ONLY way to replenish at the cellular level and provide the highest level of bioavailability of such minerals to our body.
