November is Immune Health Month!

 Just in time for cold and flu season, November is Immune Health Month! Accordingly, I’ve put together some of my favorite immune health supplements below to keep your immune system running its best.

The immune system is your body’s primary mechanism of defense, responsible for protecting you from potentially harmful invaders. It is made up of various cells, tissues, and substances including the skin barrier, red and white blood cells, microbiota, antibodies, and cytokines (cell signaling molecules).

The immune system may be generally broken down into the innate immune response, your first line of defense, and the adaptive immune response, which is highly specific against particular intruders. Immune system dysfunction may result in allergies, infections, tumors, and autoimmunity.An integrative treatment plan including a healthy lifestyle, a nutritious diet, adequate sleep, regular exercise, IV Therapy, detox methods (like HOCATT Ozone Therapy), and professional-grade suppements may help you to optimize your immune health and prevent disease.

Astragalus (Astragalus membranaceus)

Astragalus is a botanical herb with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulating, and anticancer properties. While astragalus has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine to treat individuals with increased susceptibility to infections, studies suggest it may improve outcomes of inflammatory conditions and certain cancers.  Research has also shown that astragalus may help stimulate the immune response by increasing white blood cell count.

Colostrum

The first milk that comes from a mammal after giving birth, known as colostrum, is high in immunomodulatory compounds and growth factors. As a dietary supplement, bovine colostrum may help support immune and gastrointestinal health. Colostrum contains compounds known as immunoglobulins which may prevent upper respiratory tract infections, gastrointestinal infections, and certain types of inflammation.

Probiotics

Probiotics, beneficial live microorganisms, may support immune health by modulating innate and adaptive immune responses and inhibiting the growth of pathogens. Probiotic supplements may help to protect healthy individuals against respiratory infections such as the common cold and the flu. Additionally, research has shown that probiotics may be effective in certain immune conditions, including allergies, eczema, human papillomavirus (HPV), and certain drug-resistant infections.

Vitamin C

 

Vitamin C plays an important role in immune function by supporting both innate and adaptive immune systems. Vitamin C may be obtained from dietary sources such as citrus fruit, papaya, broccoli, and kiwifruit, as well as from dietary supplements. Vitamin C deficiency may result in lowered immunity and a higher risk of infections. Supplementing with vitamin C has been shown to be effective in treating respiratory and systemic infections.

 

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin required in mineral metabolism, bone health, and immune function. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with an increased risk of autoimmune conditions, including type 1 diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and multiple sclerosis (MS). Research suggests that vitamin D supplementation may reduce the risk of autoimmune conditions, support immune tolerance in autoimmune conditions, and enhance the antimicrobial effect of certain immune cells.
