Everyone is very concerned about the coronavirus pandemic, but other viral infections that cause deaths every year such as flu and pneumonia are very much prevalent. With all of the complications that could arise from these infections happening at the same time, it is important for everyone to up their vitamin game. A Replenishing IV contains vitamins and minerals discussed below that can be a real boost.
B Complex Vitamins
If you have ever stood in the supplement aisle, confused as to the difference between different B vitamins, you know that there is definitely more than one. There are actually six different B Vitamins that are extremely important to the immune system.
It has been suggested that zinc supplementation could be beneficial in fighting off viruses. Zinc helps keep your immune system strong. Because it is necessary for immune cell function and cell signaling, a deficiency can lead to a weakened immune response. Zinc supplements stimulate particular immune cells and reduce oxidative stress. What’s more, zinc supplements significantly reduce the risk of infections and promote immune response in older adults.
It is important to note that many doctors are recommending that you increase your intake of vitamin C to 3-6 grams daily to increase immunity.
It isn’t enough to simply increase your intake of vitamins B, C, D, and zinc. You also must take in these vitamins in a way that can be effectively utilized by your body to boost the immune system. Compact vitamin tablets are the worst way to supplement your diet, because of decreased bioavailability. A pharmaceutical grade capsule can be a better choice, however, your body doesn’t get the full benefit of the dosage because of decreased absorption.
The best way to get any vitamin or nutrient is through food, but the fruits highest in vitamins C and D are also the most acidic, which is a problem for some patients.
If you are going to supplement your food intake with additional vitamins, consider IV therapy which will get them directly to where they are needed most.
