Vitamins against the flu: here is the complete list

Vitamins and more, what a passion

Here is a first list of aids for our immune system

  • C vitamin
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin A
  • Green tea
  • Zinc
  • vitamins B 5

It is believed that vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is now the most famous and known .

Perhaps it is the most studied vitamin and known for the pathology that involves its absence (the sailors of the past knew something about it) scurvy.

But it has been seen that vitamin C supplementation leads to better white blood cell activity and at appropriate dosages is a vitamin that offers great prevention and protection against the common cold and cortical viral attacks in the broad sense.

Facilitated metabolic functions:

  • bone and tooth formation
  • red blood cell production
  • toxic metal eliminator.
  • Collagen production
  • Anti-stress
  • anti-haemorrhagic
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-viral
  • healing
  • digestive

His deficiency can be a symptom of :

  • anemia
  • gingival bleeding
  • diminished resist infection
  • dyspepsia
  • collagenopathies
  • cavity
  • capillary fragility

Natural sources: citrus fruits, kiwi, peppers, brassicaceae, acerola, papaya. …

Vitamin E: antioxidant

Our microscopic weapons are necessary for the production of antibody-producing B lymphocytes.

Facilitated metabolic functions:

  • Anti-oxidant
  • toxic metal eliminator
  • coagulation factor
  • antipercolesterolmia
  • anti-aging
  • promoter of fertility
  • muscular and nervous system

Deficiency symptoms:

  • alopecia
  • dry hair
  • impotence
  • abortions
  • muscle hypertrophy
  • prostatic hypertrophy
  • cardiac disorders
  • gastrointestinal disorders

Vitamin A, Retinol and Provitamin A or Beta-carotene.

It improves and speeds up the production of white blood cells.

Facilitated metabolic functions

  • stimulation of the immune system
  • regulation of calcium metabolism
  • production of retinal purpura

Deficient symptoms

  • itchy and burning eyes allergies
  • twilight blindness
  • chronic fatigue
  • loss of appetite
  • dry skin and hair
  • taste loss
  • recurrent infections

Green tea

Among the properties of green tea we can include:

  • regulating the rate of circulating cholesterol
  • anti-bacterial
  • anti-oxidant
  • antidiabetic adjuvant
  • prevention of pneumonia
  • stroke prevention
  • antihypertensive
  • improvement of fat metabolism
  • uterine antitumor

Zinc

Facilitated metabolic functions

  • regulator of the immune system
  • antiprostatico
  • carbohydrate metabolism
  • spermatogenesis
  • phosphorus metabolism
  • protein synthesis

Deficient symptoms

  • reduction of immune defenses
  • fatigue
  • taste loss
  • delay in growth
  • loss of appetite
  • male infertility
  • difficulty in healing
  • dermatitis
  • diabetes
  • stress

Natural sources of zinc: brewer’s yeast, spinach, sunflower seeds

liver, seafood, soy, mushrooms.

Vitamins B 5 or pantothenic acid

stimulator of the adrenal glands and the immune system.

Facilitated metabolic functions:

  • antibody production
  • adrenal regulator
  • metabolic regulator
  • cellular energy production (mitochondria)

Deficient symptoms:

  • Recurrent infections
  • bacterial ionfezioni
  • diarrhea
  • eczema
  • fall hair muscle cramps
  • nervous system disorders
  • premature aging

Natural sources: mushrooms, legumes, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, liver.

Of course, supplements could be avoided, but foods and especially poor and / or inadequate eating habits pose serious problems to the immune system …

But today we can count on products formulated and targeted to support the immune system in times of crisis; there are many, many formulations to be used both for preventive purposes and in times of crisis and therefore when the classic flu symptoms manifest themselves. L ‘ Named Influnam (available here) is one of those products whose components are:

  • INFLUNAM covered by a patent obtained from American ginseng and sambucus nigra.
  • Betaglicani
  • C vitamin
  • Zinc

The American ginseng has similar properties to the most famous Panax ginseng, so it is an adaptogen and immunostimulant, elder flowers and leaves contain generous amounts of vitamins ( B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, A, C ); The glycans beta are virtually indigestible polysaccharides but which have different properties on sugar metabolism, and stimulating the genesis of immunomodulatory macrophages so important during infections, both bacterial and viral. The well-known Vit C and zinc complete the formula .

Conclusions: although a balanced and personalized diet is the basis of health, this is not enough, inner peace is equally important to resolve the stress that weakens and reduces the immune defenses; however extreme situations extreme remedies, vitamins, minerals, plants can help us prevent immune deficits and help us in difficult times.
