Rebalancing Immunity with Vitamins and Minerals

Not only vitamins and minerals are essential for our body to develop and function normally, they are also integral to the proper functioning of the immune system. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the use of dietary supplements in the United States is on the rise with more than half the adult population now trying to bolster their health and immunity through taking supplements.

Vitamins and minerals are often depleted from the body especially with stress and illness. Compensation with healthy eating and the right nutritional supplements is therefore necessary to support natural defences against infections.

Another thing to consider is the negative effect of acidity on the body’s ability to absorb minerals and nutrients. If we can’t absorb minerals, we get more acidic and a downward spiral develops. Talk to your healthcare provider about how to balance your vitamins and minerals intake to help support your natural immunity against disease.
