Immune Support Supplement Stack
R2P’s Immune Support Stack
Cold and flu season are upon us and with all of the holiday travel and events, we are exposed to more people which means more germs! The best way to have a strong and healthy immune system is to ensure you are sleeping 7-8 hours per night, exercising routinely and eating a well balanced diet, along with adding in some specific supplements.
Please remember that supplements will not undo the impact of poor sleep and diet on your immune system but instead they are meant to supplement a balanced routine. Read on below to see my Immune Support Supplement Stack to help your body stay healthy and rebound quickly from illnesses that may come your way!
Vitamin C with Flavonoids, 1000mg/day: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that can also help reduce histamine levels which is why taking Vitamin C can help you recover a bit faster from the common cold. Vitamin C also help protect your tissues from excessive damage during infections.
Vitamin D, 1000-2000IU/ day: Did you know a large majority of your immune system is found in your gut? Vitamin D is key to the health of the gut biome which directly impacts your body’s ability to fight off infections. The reduction in sunlight can cause many to become low in vitamin D so taking this vitamin daily is a best practice as the days become shorter.
Daily Greens Plus, 1scope/ day: Daily Greens will also support your gut biome by giving your body both pre- and probiotics to help the flora flourish. Daily Greens also contains other antioxidants like Glutathione and Quercetin and a great blend of mushrooms like reishi and chaga which also support your immune system.
Zinc Bisglycinate, 15mcg/ day: Zinc is a very important mineral and plays a key role in the actual physical development and function of the cells that mediate our innate immunity. Some research has shown that taking zinc can also shorten the duration of the common cold, just like Vitamin C.
Please consult with a registered dietitian or your physician for questions concerning supplements and your individual medical needs.
