- Vitamin D - This vitamin is essential for maintaining strong bones and teeth, heart and lung health and normal immune system function. It also assists with reducing depression. It can improve the innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in Vitamin D is associated with an increased susceptibility to infection. Vitamin D is commonly low in people who do not get enough sunlight.
- Vitamin B12 - One of the B complex vitamins. It plays an important role in white blood cell production - white blood cells are essential for proper immune system functioning.
- Magnesium - Has a strong relationship with the immune system, in both nonspecific and specific immune response which are key to fighting infection and viruses.
- Zinc is known to play a central role in the immune system, and Zinc-deficient people experience increased susceptibility to a variety of pathogens. Zinc affects multiple aspects of the immune system, from the barrier of the skin to white blood cells.
- Ferritin A universal intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. It ensures that your red blood cells are able to carry oxygen effectively for normal respiratory health.
- Kidney function - if poor, this will put you in a high risk category for viral infections.
- Liver function - ensure that your liver is ready to fight infections, those with poor liver function are more likely to struggle and suffer from respiratory viruses.
