The Benefits of Immune System Support

Maintaining a healthy immune system helps the body defend itself when faced with challenges. Inflammation is a key part of the immune response by reacting to stimuli and responding accordingly. Increased cytokine production is part of a normal inflammatory response. However, consistently elevated cytokines in the absence of a trigger can lead to an overactivated immune response.*

In cell culture studies, Immuplex® was shown to affect cytokine production, including IL-8, IL-10, TNFα, and IFNy, indicating its role in mediating T-lymphocyte inflammation.1

How Immuplex® Works to Support Your Immune System

Immuplex® contains several micronutrients that function to support the body’s normal inflammatory response.* They also work synergistically in the immune response, and many are critical for antibody production.

These micronutrients include zinc, selenium, vitamin C and vitamin E. They exhibit antioxidant properties which may help support oxidant-mediated inflammation2-3 and are essential players in a healthy immune system response.4-6

Vitamins B6, E, A, and C — also found in Immuplex® — may support healthy white blood cell function.  White blood cells are vital components of the immune system.7,8

What is selenium, and how does selenium support immune system health?

Selenium, an essential nutrient, provides an antioxidant function as an essential part of antioxidant enzymes in the body.9,10 Moreover, selenium plays a critical role in various physiological processes including the regulation of immune cell functions11 and healthy inflammatory processes.12 Selenium has been shown to play an important role in many selenoproteins that appear to support the body’s ability to resist physiological stress.13

Zinc is an essential micronutrient for basic cell activities and has a key role in aspects of healthy immune function14 and healthy inflammatory response in the body15. In particular, zinc plays a role in both innate and adaptive immune responses, which has been extensively reviewed and studied.16-20

Antioxidant vitamin E — known to be one of the most effective nutrients in the modulation of the immune system21 — supports T cells, monocytes, and cytokine production in the body.22,23

Standard Process is a third generation, family-owned company that works with health care practitioners to effectively and holistically enhance wellness for the entire family. We’ve dedicated ourselves to changing lives through whole food-based nutritional supplements that fill dietary gaps and support the body’s interrelated systems. Explore the areas that matter to you.

How to strengthen your immune system Naturally

How can you improve your immune system? Your immune system does an amazing job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms. But sometimes it fails: A germ invades successfully and makes you sick. What steps can you take to boost or support your immune system?  What if you improve your diet? What can you do to improve your lifestyle, such as sleep and exercise. What vitamins, supplements or herbal preparations work?

What can you do to boost your immune system?

The idea of boosting your immunity is enticing, but the ability to do so has proved elusive for several reasons. The immune system is precisely that — a system, not a single entity. To function well, it requires balance and harmony. There is still much that researchers don’t know about the intricacies and interconnectedness of the immune response. For now, there are no scientifically proven direct links between lifestyle and enhanced immune function.

Researchers are exploring the effects of diet, exercise, age, psychological stress, and other factors on the immune response, both in animals and in humans. In general,  healthy-living strategies make sense since they likely help immune function and they come with other proven health benefits.

Healthy ways to strengthen your immune system

Your first line of defense is to follow a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward naturally keeping your immune system working properly. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental Toxins and are boosted by healthy-living strategies. What is a healthy lifestyle?

  • Don’t smoke.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
  • Try to minimize stress.
  • Keep current with all recommended vaccines. Vaccines prime your immune system to fight off infections before they take hold in your body.

Prioritize Good Sleep For Immune Support

Getting poor sleep on a regular basis can lead to increased stress, high inflammation, and lower immunity. Make sleep a priority. Make sure to go to bed and wake up around the same time each day to help your circadian rhythm. Develop a nighttime routine that supports relaxation.

Avoid Sugar & Processed Foods

Sugar and processed foods are extremely inflammatory to your body. Chronic inflammation can lead to poor immune function which increases your risk of infection and disease.

Avoid processed foods and foods that are high in refined sugar, refined oils, gluten, conventional dairy, artificial ingredients, coloring, and additives. Choose an anti-inflammatory diet rich in greens, vegetables, fruits, clean protein, and healthy fats, such as avocado, olive oil and olives in olive oil, ).

Consume Immune Support Enhancing Foods

Eat an immune-supporting, anti-inflammatory, nutrient-dense diet. Focus on organic greens including chard, kale, and spinach, vegetables, including cucumber, celery, and broccoli, herbs and spices including turmeric, ginger, basil, and mint, low glycemic index fruits including lemon, lime, and berries, healthy fats including avocado, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, grass-fed butter, and ghee, clean protein including grass-fed beef, free-range poultry and eggs, wild-caught fish, and wild boar, fermented foods including kimchi, sauerkraut, and kefir, and medicinal mushrooms including reishi, cordyceps, and turkey tail.

Choose home-cooked whole food meals whenever possible. We would highly encourage you and your family to start cooking more and to try new recipes that support the immune system.  According to Dr. Jockers, apple cider vinegar, garlic, ginger, olive oil, onions, mushrooms, and bone broth are all great foods for enhancing immune support.

Fresh Air, Sunshine, and Grounding

Being outdoors has endless benefits, not to mention boosting mood while being in Nature. Being in the sunshine can increase your Vitamin D levels which are important for optimal immune function. Sunshine can also improve your mood, reduce stress, and elevate depression and anxiety.  According to Dr. Jockers, breathing the fresh air helps to clear your lungs and grounding, standing or walking on dirt, grass, or sand, can help you connect you to the earth and improve your physical and mental health.

Be sure to step outside and spend time in your garden, yard, balcony, or street in front of your house or apartment as much as you can. Open the windows to let the fresh air in. Grow some plants to allow nature to be present inside. Go for a walk or a jog while keeping the recommended social distance in order to uplift your spirit and improve your immune system during this time.

Regular Movement & Exercise

Regular movement and exercise are particularly important for a healthy immune system. It improves your lung function, cardiovascular health, mood, and energy levels while reducing inflammation and building strength and muscle. Make sure to exercise 20–30 minutes a day.

Mix up cardiovascular exercises, such as walking, running, biking, or dance, as well as resistance- and strength training, including weight lifting, CrossFit, TRX, and pilates. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) provides the benefits of both (10).

You may find many free workouts online and on youtube which you can follow at home, including yoga, pilates, HIIT, Zumba, kettlebell, TRX, weight lifting, and other types of workouts. Make sure to stay active throughout the day. Even if you are home, make sure to take time throughout the day to stretch, do a yoga sequence, walk around the room, dance for your favorite songs, or if possible, go outside for a short walk or try gardening.

Good Hydration & Drink Herbal Teas

Good hydration is essential for a healthy immune function. It is  recommend that you drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day.  For of clean water minimum a day. If you are exercising, spend time outside in the sun. If you are recovering from an illness or infection, or otherwise feeling dehydrated, drink more. Listen to your body.

I recommend systems like  Aquatrue or the Berkey system for low cost filtration.  The best water is the Synergy Science hydrogen water which is what I use at home, as it is powered by molecular hydrogen which reduces oxidative stress in the body and improves immune function.  Add a slice of lime for some extra flavor. Additionally, I recommend drinking herbal tea as well. Echinacea, ginger, and peppermint are fantastic options for immune support (10).

Optimize Vitamin D Levels

Vitamin D is essential for healthy immune function. While the sun is your best friend for boosting vitamin D, chances are you don’t spend enough time outside in the sun to meet your needs.

Vitamin D-rich foods, including fatty fish, beef liver, and egg yolks offer some support, but not enough to optimize your vitamin D levels (22).  Pairing vitamin D3 with vitamin K2 helps improve calcium absorption and inflammation control.

I recommend taking a vitamin D3 supplement with at least 3,000-5,000 IU’s of vitamin D3 and at least 90 mcg of vitamin K2.  I highly recommend this Vitamin D3/K2 Power. This supplement support your immune, skin, cardiovascular, and bone health.

Typically, taking 1,000 IU per 25 lbs. of body weight will help you get your levels into a healthy range. You want to test your vitamin D levels at least 1-2 times each year and get your levels between 50-100 ng/ml. It has been hypothesized that a therapeutic level for major health conditions is going to be between 70-100 ng/ml.

Take Probiotics & Digestive Enzymes

Your gut health and immune health are interconnected. Keeping your gut microbiome balanced is absolutely critical for a healthy immune system. For digestive support, I recommend Super D-Zyme, a powerful digestive enzyme that benefits your digestion, enhances nutrient absorption and helps the breakdown of lactose and polysaccharides. Take it daily with each meal.

For microbiome balance, I recommend taking a good probiotic supplement such as MegaSporeBiotic here.  Take it daily for optimal gut and immune health benefits (23, 24).

Use Vitamin C & Zinc For Immune Support

Vitamin C and zinc are both essential for immune health. Vitamin C-rich foods include lemon, lime, oranges, mandarins, grapefruits, guava, strawberries, papaya, pineapples, kiwi, sweet green pepper, broccoli, and brussels sprouts.

Foods that are rich in zinc include spinach, pumpkin seeds, salmon, and grass-fed dairy. Additionally, I use Super C and Zinc Charge to help support my immune system (25, 26, 27, 28).

Use an Infrared Sauna For Immune Support

Infrared saunas have countless health benefits. They support detoxification, improve immune health, reduce stress, and improve energy. To learn more about the benefits of infrared saunas, read this article.

For optimal immune support and health benefits, I recommend an infrared sauna by Synergy Science as a great affordable option with safe, deep penetrating, detoxifying, and immune-supporting benefits (29, 30, 31, 32).

Bonus Strategy: 3-Day Fast or Partial Fast

If you are not feeling well or simply want an extra immune system boost, I recommend that you do a 3-day fast or a partial fast. If you are embarking on a 3-day fast, I recommend reading this article to learn about the benefits and best strategies. I only recommend 3-day water fasts if you are already experienced with and do well on longer intermittent fasting strategies.

If you are not yet physically or mentally ready for a 3-day fast, a partial fast is a fantastic alternative. You may choose to do a 3-day green juice fast, as explained here, or a bone broth fast, as discussed here. Make sure to follow an immune-supporting, nutrient-dense diet as well as immune-supporting lifestyle strategies after your fast (33).
