Our Wellness Kit increases your immune system with the help of the following vitamins, minerals and elements. Here is a summary of how our Wellness Kit will boost our body’s ability to fight off viruses.
Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system. A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness.It is responsible for a number of functions in the human body, and it helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 different enzymes. Only a small intake of zinc is necessary to reap the benefits.
Vitamin D has garnered much attention in recent years for good reason. You may know its classic role in bone health by aiding the absorption of calcium in the gut. We are also learning that vitamin D plays a critical and complex role in the immune system.
Despite strong evidence of the benefits of vitamin D, deficiency or insufficiency of this vitamin remains extremely common. It is estimated that 28.9% of U.S. adults are vitamin D deficient (<20 ng/dL), and another 41.1% are vitamin D insufficient (<20-30 ng/dL). That’s approximately two thirds of the U.S. population with low levels of vitamin D, which is a staggering figure.
Vitamin D deficiency is becoming more prevalent due to changes in our lifestyle. While we are able to synthesize vitamin D when sunlight hits the skin, many of us have occupations that require us to be indoors for most of the day. Additionally, sunscreen is wonderful to use for skin cancer prevention, but it can block the UV rays needed for vitamin D synthesis.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a vitamin your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and collagen in bones. Vitamin C is also vital to your body’s healing process.
An antioxidant, vitamin C might help protect your cells against the effects of free radicals — molecules produced when your body breaks down food or is exposed to tobacco smoke and radiation. Free radicals might play a role in heart disease, cancer and other diseases. Vitamin C also helps your body absorb and store iron.
Because your body doesn’t produce vitamin C, you need to get it from your diet. Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits, berries, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and spinach. Vitamin C is also available as an oral supplement, typically in the form of capsules and chewable tablets.
People with gastrointestinal conditions and some types of cancer might be susceptible to vitamin C deficiency. Vitamin C is also used to increase iron absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. Severe vitamin C deficiency can lead to a disease characterized by anemia, bleeding gums, bruising and poor wound healing (scurvy).
Magnesium is a mineral that’s crucial to the body’s function. Magnesium helps keep blood pressure normal, bones strong, and the heart rhythm steady.
Experts say that many people in the U.S. aren’t eating enough foods with magnesium. Adults who consume less than the recommended amount of magnesium are more likely to have elevated inflammation markers. Inflammation, in turn, has been associated with major health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers. Also, low magnesium appears to be a risk factor for osteoporosis.
Vitamin A is a generic term that refers to fat-soluble compounds found as preformed vitamin A (retinol) in animal products and as provitamin A carotenoids in fruit and vegetables. The three active forms of vitamin A in the body are retinol, retinal, and retinoic acid. Vitamin A is involved in regulating the growth and specialization of virtually all cells in the human body.
Vitamin A deficiency is associated with an increased susceptibility to infections, as well as to thyroid and skin disorders. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) is 700 micrograms of retinol activity equivalents per day for women and 900 per day for men.
