Immune System and Nutritional Supplements

the immune system is the set of cells and their activity against antigens or infectious agents that comprises of the body's defense system against diseases. The immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy and preventing infections. However, sometimes problems with the immune system can lead to illnesses and infections.
Nutritional supplements have an important role in providing vitamins that our body needs to defend against viruses.
Here are some nutritional supplements

1 Vitamin C
Study shows that vitamin C supplements have a beneficial impact on the serum levels of IgA, IgM, and C3, in effect strengthening some important parts of our body's immune system. Vitamin C intake also helps to increase the virus-fighting cytokines that helps to validate the popular assumptions about vitamin C having effect on the immune system.

2. Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6, through its involvement in protein metabolism and cellular growth is important to the immune system. It helps maintain the health of lymphoid organs that make your white blood cells. Studies show that a vitamin B6 deficiency can decrease your antibody production and suppress your immune response.

3. Vitamin A
Vitamin A is found in colorful fruits and vegetables. It has properties of antioxidants that help to protect cells from free radicals, which are potentially damaging by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of a weakened immune system.

4. Vitamin E
Vitamin E enhances the production of B-cells, the immune cells that produce antibodies to destroy bacteria. Study shows that vitamin E helps to stimulate the production of natural killer cells, those that seek out and destroy germs and cancer cells.

5. Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis. Vitamin D are antioxidants. It is very important to our health, including modulation of neuromuscular, immune function and reduction of inflammation.

6. Bee PollenBee pollen is often referred to as nature's most complete food. It contains many healing components and has been used for centuries as a source of nourishment. Today it is used not only for achieving better human health but also used in strengthening the immune system.
