The Immune System is one of the most vital structures in the body, comprised of various organs, cells, and proteins. Together, they protect the body from harmful pathogens and cell changes that cause colds, influenzas, and cancers.
As long as the immune system is working properly the average person will never know it’s there. When it is weak or not working, you get sick. Without the immune system, the body would have no way to fight the outside hazards or malicious changes that happen within (1).
Luckily, there are things you can take to make your immune system stronger and help it fight. With the help of top medical experts, we put together a list of 9 supplements to boost your immune system.
Lysine is an essential amino acid that works as a building block in the body. It is crucial for cell growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies, hormones, and enzymes. The body cannot make lysine, so it is important to obtain it from food or supplements. Studies have shown that it blocks and slows down viral replication, making it effective in treating influenza viruses, herpes simplex and other viruses (2), (3), (4).
2. Thymus Tissue
Thymus Tissue in a supplement form may boost the Thymus, which is a necessity in the development of the white blood cell T lymphocytes (T Cells). These cells develop from stem cells in bone marrow and help to protect the body by controlling the reactions of the immune system to outside infection and cancer-causing pathogens (5).
3. Spleen Tissue
Spleen Tissue in supplement form may improve Spleen function. The Spleen needs to be working properly for the immune system to be strong. It has a wide range of immune functions, including forming, filtering, and circulating red blood cells (6).
4. Vitamin A
In recent years, new studies show that vitamin A has vital, yet unexpected effects on the immune system. It has been shown to regulate a wide range of immune operations like “lymphocyte activation and proliferation, T-helper-cell differentiation, tissue-specific lymphocyte homing, the production of specific antibody isotypes and regulation of the immune response” (7). Vitamin A is also known to treat/prevent inflammation and autoimmunity in the body.
5. Vitamin C
Many cells in the immune system, especially the phagocytes and t-cells need vitamin C to carry out their duties. When the body is lacking in vitamin C, it has a lower resistance to certain harmful substances (8). You are more susceptible to getting sick when your body is lacking in vitamin C. The recommended daily intake of vitamin C is 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men (9).
Just like vitamin C, a lack of Zinc can make you more susceptible to illness. Zinc in humans is somewhat of a new discovery. About 40 years ago, in the Middle East, researchers discovered that people with zinc deficiencies had drastic immune dysfunctions (10). Zinc is responsible for numerous bodily functions. It synthesizes DNA, controls the barrier of the skin, regulates hundreds of enzymes and is crucial for the development and function of cells (11). The recommended daily intake of Zinc is 8 mg for women and 11 mg for men.
Elderberries are a natural remedy, loaded with antioxidants and vitamins that may help boost your immune system. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, elderberries were shown to have antiviral properties against 10 different strains of Influenza viruses (12).
Echinacea is a popular immune stimulant found in North America. Clinical trials have shown that Echinacea shortens the duration and severity of colds and other upper respiratory infections when given as soon as symptoms begin to take place (13).
