Optimizing your immune system: multivitamins, antioxidant and immunity boosters

The power of multivitamins, antioxidants and immunity boosters

Bish Bosh Bash – Let’s pack a punch and find out whether multivitamins and antioxidant and immunity boosters really can boost your immune system and make a difference to your health, fitness and energy levels.  Everybody knows that  there are always some people who catch every bug that’s going. However, I’ve often wondered, why then are there always other people who are bursting with energy, who always stay fit and who never seem to get ill? Although it’s easy to put it down to potluck, what I’ve discovered, through research, is that it’s really down to our inbuilt self-defense system, or our immune system.

Keeping your immune system in shape

When it comes to keeping your immune system at its peak through the winter months, it’s essential that you’re getting your daily nourishment – and by that I mean nutrients and multivitamins.

The importance of T-cells

To stay healthy and fight off infections your body’s natural killer cells must be on top form. Known as T-cells, these amazing fighting units go after any virus-infected cells, killing and neutralising them before you even start to act. T-cells quickly identify and eliminate enemy invaders like bacteria and viruses. To work effectively though you need to keep those T-cells happy.

So, how do you do that?

How to keep your T-cells happy: antioxidants, diet and multivitamins

Simple! If you eat a balanced diet and don’t skip meals you will nourish your T-cells and keep your immune system perky all winter. Choose foods that are high in antioxidants like oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, broccoli, carrots and cabbage. Many experts believe that antioxidant and multivitamins, like vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E can help give your immune system a big boost and reduce the risk of serious illness.

Another great way to get more antioxidants and multivitamins into your diet is by drinking more green tea. People in the East drink green tea regularly and many people believe it to be the secret of longevity and anti-ageing in Eastern cultures. Be warned, it is often an acquired taste, but try taking just one cup a day and building up slowly as they days get colder and the nights get longer.

Many people also boost their immune system with a regular, high-quality multivitamin. Once again, antioxidants are key, so look out for the main ones – vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E – in any supplements you buy. Also look for ones that help ensure the presence of essential cofactors necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions.

The best time to take your multivitamins and mineral supplements is with meals. If you take them on an empty stomach, your body won’t absorb them fully and they may make you feel sick or even cause an upset stomach.
