With the cold and flu season upon us many people are looking for the best supplements they can use to help build up their immune systems and fight off infection. One reason for this is that this year we are seeing a decrease in the number of people opting to get vaccines over last year. Today we will look at some of the most effective vitamins that will help us do this.
Vitamin A is a powerful anti-viral and helps us fight off infection by making our cell walls stronger and allowing our T-Cells to maintain a healthy level. It also keeps an anti-viral enzyme called lysozyme in sufficient supply. This in turn helps our bodies fight off infection. Foods that are rich in vitamin A would be hard cheeses, eggs, liver, sweet potatoes and carrots.
