Functional Medicine Corner
Last week we discussed the importance of rest in maintaining a strong immune system response against the viruses circulating around right now. However, there are other nutrients we can use to boost our immune system, as well as help to speed recovery if we end up feeling a little under the weather.
- This a key weapon in our immune system arsenal.
- We can get small amounts of vitamin D in fortified foods such as dairy products, and in certain fish like trout, salmon and sardines.
- Otherwise look for vitamin D-3 with K2 as this tends to work quickly to increase blood levels.
- Supplementing with 5000IU daily for a few days around large gatherings or after being exposed to a virus can help your body more efficiently fight it off.
- And remember – quality of supplements matters, so consider supporting your local health food store to greatly increase the likelihood you are getting lab-verified nutrients.
- Recent meta-analysis (one of the best forms of medical research available) confirmed that taking extra vitamin C at the beginning of a cold can significantly decrease its duration.
- Generally, taking 1000-4000mg of vitamin C daily can provide a booster dose during this time of year.
- Enjoying citrus fruits, tomatoes, and peppers as well as broccoli and kale can provide additional C support!
- This important mineral has also been shown to significantly reduce symptom severity and duration when taken within 24 hours of symptom onset.
- If you feel viral symptoms coming on, taking around 30 mg of zinc picolinate or zinc gluconate should help to speed recovery.
- To support the immune system’s ability to ward off viruses generally, include foods higher in zinc such as lentils and chickpeas, hemp and pumpkin seeds, grass-fed beef and cashews.
So support yourself with immune supporting foods and nutrients as well as good rest as we head into Assessment Week and all of the holiday celebrations!
