Immune Boosting Supplements

Home » Blogs from Crist Chiropractic » Immune Boosting Supplements

If you’ve wondered what you can do to stay healthy from viruses (such as COVID-19)… We’re offering a “Prevention Pack” for people who want to take as much control over their health as possible.

The Prevention Pack Includes:

  • Zinc
  • Quercetin
  • Vitamin D3

It is important to understand how these supplements help support the immune system. We have attached multiple study links below so you can increase your knowledge and continue on your path to better health!

Immunity:

In a subgroup of subjects age 40 or older who self-rated themselves as physically fit, 1000 mg/day quercetin resulted in a statistically significant reduction in total sick days and symptom severity associated with upper respiratory tract infection (URTI). It significantly reduced URTI incidence (1 of 20 subjects in active versus 9 of 20 in placebo group) during the two-week post-exercise period. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4808895/

Quercetin and Vitamin C:

Quercetin displays a broad range of antiviral properties which can interfere at multiple steps of pathogen virulence -virus entry, virus replication, protein assembly- and that these therapeutic effects can be augmented by the co-administration of vitamin C. Furthermore, due to their lack of severe side effects and low-costs, we strongly suggest the combined administration of these two compounds for both the prophylaxis and the early treatment of respiratory tract infections, especially including COVID-19 patients.

Zinc:

Zinc exerts potent anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial qualities. In light of these qualities, the authors of the review suggested that zinc repletion via supplementation may be a viable means of combating pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19, via zinc’s capacity to reduce lung inflammation, improve airway clearance, and prevent ventilator-induced lung injury.

Vitamin D:

We conclude that correlation exists between Vit D levels and COVID-19 susceptibility and Vit D could prove to be an essential element in our fight against COVID-19.
