How to support immunity through dietary supplements.

Eva is a typical millennial. She works 70%, commutes to work, has two children under the age of three, and is preparing to defend her doctoral thesis. Although Eva loves her life, she often feels drained. She is careful about her diet but cannot always stop to eat a meal at lunchtime. Eva could be lacking specific essential vitamins and minerals. This would weaken her immune system and put her at risk of developing illnesses and diseases.


Today more than ever, it is vital to have a strong immune system – to fight against different viruses, flu, and colds. Our immune system is on the front lines battling against invaders to our health. This intricate network prevents us from getting most illnesses and diseases. And is how we avoid getting sick. That is – when everything is going as it should.

The immune system's job

Put simply, our immune system acts as a gatekeeper and is vital to our health and well-being. It recognizes and protects our body’s cells and turns away foreign cells responsible for disease and illness.

Everyone’s immune system is different. In adulthood, we have acquired immunity to an enormous amount of pathogens because of exposure to them at one time in our past. This is how we develop resistance.

But we are rarely immune to infections such as colds and flu because of the many different strains of viruses.

The modern lifestyle

Adding to this is today’s hectic and fast-paced lifestyle, where work-life balance is rarely possible. Long working hours and family obligations leave little time to cook nourishing meals and result in consuming more processed food that lacks the vitamins and minerals of whole food. We know that diet and immunity are intricately related. Over time, there is a risk of developing a deficiency in essential vitamins and minerals, which has a direct impact on health.

Also, not everyone has a robust immune system. And, at times, almost everyone’s immune system gets tired or needs a little help.


When the immune system needs a boost

Eating a balanced diet and exercise are two important elements that contribute to a healthy immune system. This is not always possible in today’s modern lifestyle. But, if the body does not get the vitamins and nutrients it needs to function adequately, this could produce oxidative stress. When free radicals and antioxidants become imbalanced in the body. If this condition persists, it could lead to chronic diseases.


One way to prevent the coughs, sniffles and fever of long winter months is to take dietary supplements. These should contain the essential vitamins and minerals specially combined to strengthen the immune system.

According to a study, vitamins A and D have a vital effect in supporting the immune system. Vitamins C and E have been shown to protect cells from oxidative stress. Vitamin B12 and folic acid, which are also essential in nerve and cell production, cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet. Also zinc is a vital mineral found in all cells and helps in combatting bacteria and viruses.

The need and benefits of dietary supplements

Getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs through a well-balanced diet is best.   Even though we may feel we are eating a balanced diet, our food quality today is not what it was in the times of our grandparents. Processed food is often high in fat and sugar and low in vitamins and minerals. Add to this, our modern food distribution system. At times, even what we consider to be fresh fruits and vegetables come from faraway places and have been stocked for long periods. By the time they are washed, cooked, and consumed, many of the precious nutrients are lost.

There is a solution. Supplementing your diet with the nutrients you need to stay healthy.


“The rational use of nutritional supplements, combined with a healthy diet, will contribute substantially to health promotion and disease prevention.”
