1. ACES with Zinc. Includes immune boosting Vitamin C but also antioxidant and mineral supports for the immune system including Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Selenium & Zinc.

2. Protein Powder. Too simple to be true? Not at all! Protein forms the back bone of all your immune cells. If you don’t get enough protein in your diet you cannot mount an immune response.

3. Vitamin D. Vitamin D can modulate the innate and adaptive immune responses. Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity as well as an increased susceptibility to infection. And up to 60% or more of people from northern climates are deficient.

4. Probiotics. Inflammation in the intestines creates a pathway for the immune system to carry out an attack against invading viruses and bacteria. Probiotics offer a beneficial defense against the effects caused by this unwarranted inflammation.
