COVID has made immunity supplements a hot and trending topic. As we approach the end of 2020, the need for immune health and supplements is stronger than ever. We are also now in winter which means we are actively in flu season on top of a pandemic, and still no vaccine to go. People are looking to immune-boosting supplements to help them stay strong and ward off unwanted illness.
According to New Hope Network, “Immunity supplements sales growth is projected to spike above 25% in 2020, up from 8.5% growth to $3.3 billion overall, according to Nutrition Business Journal. The growth potential for 2020 could be the highest in a decade—and, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, it would be easy to guess that sales growth in immunity supplements will be the highest on record.”
VITAMIN DEFICIENCY AND THE RISK OF COVID
If you are not getting adequate amounts of nutrients and vitamins, your immune system becomes more at risk of illness. According to AARP, “lower-than-recommended levels of certain vitamins and minerals can impair immunity to respiratory viruses and other pathogens. Nutrient deficiencies have also been linked to higher levels of inflammation and longer periods of recovery from illness.” It goes on to state, “The nutrient gaining the most traction among scientists studying SARS-CoV-2 is vitamin D.”
A simple blood test can determine which nutrients you may be low on. It’s important to note that too much of a supplement will only get flushed out of your body. If you are unsure which nutrients to take and in what doses, do a little research or speak with your doctor to determine the proper amount.
IMMUNITY SUPPLEMENTS AND THIER BOOSTING NUTRIENTS
Some of the top immunity supplement nutrients to look for in supplements are:
- Vitamin C: Can help prevent a cold or fight it off faster. Provides antioxidants that reduce inflammation. Lung inflammation is a primary symptom of COVID-19.
- Vitamin D: Helps the body to maintain optimal blood levels and protects against respiratory infections.
- Vitamin B Complex: Keeps the immune system strong.
- Zinc: Helps shorten the length of colds and upper respiratory infection symptoms.
- Elderberry: An organic antiviral and anti-inflammatory supplement that works to reduce swelling of mucus membranes.
- Selenium: This mineral helps to prevent bird flu and swine flu. The antioxidants boost immune function.
