How To Keep Your Immune System Strong

How To Keep Your Immune System Strong

In this day and age, preventing illness is commonly top-of-mind. How can you keep your body healthy and functioning optimally? While it can feel like you don’t have control over your health, there are in fact many things you can do to stay healthy. Here are some of our favorite ways to keep our patients in their prime. 


Vitamin C

For those looking for a good immune system boost, Vitamin C is a great starting point. Vitamin C is an essential, yet a versatile nutrient with healing properties. The vitamin has many important roles in our body’s immune function, including shortening the common cold, preventing damage to cells, building collagen, and preventing acute respiratory infections. This powerhouse vitamin helps your immune system continue to function at its best.


Gut Health

In the past decade researchers increasingly find that the gut is responsible for more than just processing food — it’s an integral part of the body’s immune system. In fact, research suggests that  “certain cells in the lining of the gut spend their lives excreting massive quantities of antibodies into the gut.” Probiotics help your gut to function at its best, protecting you for external pathogens. Our pick is the probiotic, Bacillus Coagulans providing good, healthy bacteria to support your immune system.


Thyroid Optimization

Thyroid optimization — it’s more than just a mouthful to say, it is also an essential component of weight management. The thyroid is most known for its control over metabolism, however, it can also contribute to immune system health. 

It is important to provide the body with sufficient levels of iodine during thyroid optimization because the thyroid utilizes iodine to create the hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. These hormones are used by the body to metabolize proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. It has been reported in multiple studies that optimizing thyroid hormones help the body fight infections and destroy viral particles.
