The Best Supplements for Immune Health

While the world battles against Covid-19, maintaining a great immune system has become a constant struggle and also a top priority for almost everybody across the globe. Several health companies have come up with products – whether herbal or medicinal, that claim to keep this virus at bay. How much of their claim is true? Only time will tell! But until then, it is our primary job to do the best we can; to protect ourselves. While you are doing your absolute best, Persona is here to help you do better! Here are some great supplements you can take, to support your natural immunity.

 

  1. Immune Support : This is an amazing blend of astragalus root extract, Andrographis and Reishi Mushrooms. A combination of these 3 powerful herbs not only promotes immunity at a cellular level, but also provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to this supplement. Taking our Immune Support consistently also helps maintain a harmonious balance of the organs and systems in our bodies.

 

  1. Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids : This is an essential vitamin, which means that our bodies do not produce it. This gives us more reason to make sure we nourish our bodies with Vitamin C regularly. It is a powerful antioxidant and helps our body’s defense mechanism by supporting the functions of our immune system (1). Along with immunity, regular consumption of Vitamin C has also been shown to reduce wound healing (2), provide collagen support and improve our oral health.

 

  1. Fermented Ginseng : An extremely diverse supplement, Ginseng is an adaptogen that helps relieve our bodies from physical, mental and emotional stress. But most importantly, Ginseng has been shown to maintain an equilibrium of the immune system and enhances our resistance to illness (3). The enzyme used by us is the fermented form of Korean Ginseng, which works much faster than the other kinds of ginseng.

 

  1. Antioxidant : Antioxidants have been well known in the world of nutrition as the agents that act as barriers for environmental toxins. Our Antioxidant supplement contains a powerful blend of essential vitamins and minerals that helps improve our overall immunity and support a healthy inflammatory response in the body. Not only that, this supplement also supports cardiovascular, brain and skin health.

 

  1. Quercetin Plus : Quecertin is a plant pigment (flavonoid), which is present in fruits and vegetables like onions, broccoli, apples, berries, grapes. This supplement is widely known for its properties to stimulate the immune system and it’s strong anti-inflammatory capacities (4), which might help reduce inflammation in the body, kill cancer cells, balance blood sugar and support a healthy heart.

 

Some Tips To Strengthen Your Immune System Naturally

  • Always eat a diet that is full of fresh and seasonal fruits and vegetables. These contain vital nutrients that turn into building blocks for better health.
  • Exercise regularly. This helps flush out toxins from your body, reducing your chances of catching a cold or flu.
  • Wash your hands regularly. Change your clothes as soon as you come back home from being out. This helps avoid catching an infection.
  • Get proper sleep and minimize stress. When the body sleeps, it heals and resets itself. This is absolutely essential for good health.
  • Drink plenty of fluids every day and add a probiotic to your daily routine. Good immunity starts in the gut, and there’s nothing like a good probiotic to benefit your intestine.

 

The Bottom Line

Although, doing all of this may sound a little challenging and time constraining on a regular basis. But think about the importance of your health and family, who you support every day! If you take good care of your body, your body will thank you by taking good care of you in return.
