Immune Support Packages
After an illness, it's important to consider immune support and preventative medicine.
Why did you get sick?
Sometimes it’s just bad luck. However, it can also be a sign of a vulnerable immune system. We recommend taking steps to support your immune function, including the use of some supplements.
The Risk of Secondary Infection
Ironically when you are sick, you are more vulnerable to acquire another illness. Your immune system is already under duress therefore it is less capable of responding to another invader. The time of an infection, and its aftermath, represent high vulnerability moments. Taking extra steps just makes sense.
The Immune Support Package
Zinc is one of the most important micronutrients for immune support. It is directly involved in creating healthy white blood cells to fight infection. Zinc can also be difficult to absorb and many people have less than ideal levels. Take one daily.
Vitamin C functions much like a “stress hormone” in our body. There is a significant demand for increased amounts when we are under duress. Take 1000 mg twice daily.
Like zinc, magnesium is a central micronutrient critical for healthy immune function. The blend recommended at Intellectual Medicine maximizes absorption without causing diarrhea. Take 2 daily.
This Baker’s yeast form of beta glucan is one of the most researched and validated for supporting immune function. Take one daily.
