The Ultimate Cold-Kicking Combination!

If you want a fighting chance to create a natural resistance to invading bacteria and viruses, your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Every part of your body, including your immune system, functions better when protected from environmental and nutritional assaults.

Here are 5 major factors that suppress your immune system:

#1 Age

The aging process somehow leads to a reduction of immune response capability, which in turn contributes to infections, more inflammatory diseases, and more cancer. There seems to be a connection between nutrition and imunity in the elderly, specifically regarding a deficiency in certain micronutrients.

#2 Stress

The closely linked relationship between mind and body makes scientists suspect chronic stress takes a toll on the immune system.

#3 Low Quality Diet

Research has long recognized that people who live in poverty and are malnourished are more vulnerable to infectious diseases. Important micronutrients for immune response are zinc, selenium, iron, copper, folic acid, and vitamins A, B6, C, and E. 

If you suspect your diet is not providing you with all your micronutrient needs — maybe you don't like vegetables or you choose white bread over whole grains — taking a multivitamin and mineral supplement brings health benefits of many types, including immunity benefits.

#4 Stuck Indoors

When it's cold outside and you're spending more time indoors, you're typically in closer contact with other people who can pass on their germs. This certainly increases your risk of catching a cold. 

#5 Inadequate Exercise

Just like a healthy diet, exercise can contribute to general good health and therefore to a healthy immune system. It may contribute even more directly by promoting good circulation, which allows the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently.

What if your immune system is being effected by any of these 5 major factors? Start by ensure your immune system gets the specific nutrients it needs, which includes both long- and short-term support.
