Some supplements might be able to help prevent illness, but doctors say patients should do research

“People are at a heightened level of anxiety because of COVID,” she said. “But, you should be careful what you spend your money on.”

Certain foods also may help prevent illness, Wilkerson Riddiford said. Pumpkin seeds, for instance, have a high amount of zinc, which is known to help boost the immune system, she said.

The most beneficial thing people can do to prevent falling ill is to wash their hands, get plenty of sleep and abide by COVID-19 recommendations such as wearing masks in public and keeping a safe distance, said Dr. Seuli Brill, a pediatrician and internal medicine doctor at Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

While Brill said there’s some benefit to taking vitamins and supplements, they also can cause problems.

St. John’s Wort, which has been used to treat a variety of conditions including poor sleep or appetite, can interfere with antidepressants, Brill said. Another supplement called Ginkgo biloba, which is used sometimes used by people with dizziness or memory loss, can cause an upset stomach or skin irritation.

Although supplements aren’t drugs, patients should treat them similarly, Brill said. Anyone looking to try a new vitamin or supplement for any reason should first talk to their doctor, Brill said.

Brill said she’s had patients who all of a sudden start having some unusual health problems.

“There’s absolutely danger in that,” Brill said. “I’ve definitely had patients with lab abnormalities, liver enzymes and things being off, and it turns out that patient is taking a supplement.”

Star Nutra Responds to Global Consumer Demand For Immune Support Supplements

Star Nutra Responds to Global Consumer Demand For Immune Support Supplements

  • January 13, 2021

After developing products for national brands for over 20 years, seeing both the good and the bad of the supplement industry, Unmarked Wellness founder and president Mark Forster decided to shake up the wellness industry and launch his own brand. The brand grew from idea to reality in under six months, expedited by the continuing health crisis in the hopes that supplements can boost the immune system. “The Pandemic has renewed interest in man’s most potent protector – the immune system,” says Forster.  Stress plays a major role in declining immune health, and during these stressful times our products were developed to “focus on three things that Americans need most – sleep, sunshine, and general immune health.”

Knowing that over 70% of Americans report insufficient sleep on a monthly basis, and 42% are deficient in Vitamin D, the team worked to develop simple formulas without unnecessary additives or sugars to address these concerns. Developed in conjunction with in-house medical professionals, the launch includes three products available in a 30 or 60-Day supply with one pack per SKU. These three products are vegan, cruelty-free, nut-free, and GMP certified:

  • Resilience ($24): Main ingredient is Elderberry, which contains high levels of vitamin C to support a healthy immune system.
  • Sunshine ($18): Made up of Vitamin-D, which is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays a central role in calcium metabolism.
  • Moonlight ($22): Combination of Melatonin and L-Theanine and passionfruit to reduce stress and anxiety and promote sleep,

Unmarked Wellness’s mission is to provide the best solutions and quality ingredients at an accessible price. The brand sources all active ingredients from two very different places; directly from the farms that grow them and from designer bioceutical labs that specialize in whole-plant actives formulated to optimize absorption.  All manufacturing is handled in-house at the brand’s FDA/GMP facility in San Diego, cutting down on costs and giving Americans better access to the remedies they can use to stay healthy. Unmarked Wellness products are half the price of their competitors on average, despite having more potent and effective ingredients.

Unmarked Wellness is sold exclusively online at https://unmarkedwellness.com/ and Amazon.

Four important immune system supplements to keep you healthy during the pandemic

Four important immune system supplements to keep you healthy during the pandemic

SCIENCE | COVID-19 | Never before has it been so important for citizens worldwide to boost their immune systems. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to gain victims in every country, people are looking for ways that they can naturally strengthen their own body’s defenses against this fatal infection.As millions of people follow strict quarantine and social distancing regulations in every country, many are wondering if wearing masks and using hand sanitizer is enough. Without a healthy immune system, an infection of this kind of coronavirus bacteria could be very serious.

The good news is, that there are many natural ways through your diet with which you can give your immune system the improvement it needs. Along with following the recommended CDC guidelines, strengthening your immune system is possible, especially when adding the right nutrients and vitamins through daily supplements from Designs For Health. Let’s look at a few supplements that can help you boost your immunity.

Omega-3’s

When your body is under stress, it puts a huge strain on your immune system. Your body needs to work harder to deal with mild inflammations while under stress not leaving enough strength in your system to efficiently deal with invasions of infection or bacteria. Omega-3 amino acids work to reduce cellular stress that can lead to strain on your immune health. Adding foods like fish, fish oils, algae or a blended supplement can help your body to fight back against infection.

Probiotics

The healthy bacteria that make up general probiotics can help to boost your immune system. The role of probiotics is to ensure the healthy processing of nutrients while providing a strong barrier against harmful bacteria and inflammation. Your immune response is often kicked into high gear when you have inflammation in any part of your body making it less capable of dealing with an external infection. Foods that are fermented like kefir and sauerkraut contain good levels of probiotics. Yogurt is one of the most commonly preferred sources of probiotics and is tolerable for most people.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays a vital role in the production of antimicrobial peptides throughout the body. These peptides contain essential antibacterial and antibiotic properties that help the immune system to fight off foreign bacteria like COVID-19. Apart from spending time in the sun, which is the most common natural source of Vitamin D, you can add a supplement to your diet to ensure that you don’t become deficient, especially during the time spent in quarantine.

Curcumin

Curcumin is the extract that gives Turmeric the orange-yellow pigment and distinct flavoring. Known for its powerful antioxidant properties, Curcumin works to support many of the systems in the body including immune health. Curcumin has been proven to promote a healthy immune cell response when the body is threatened by infection or harmful bacteria. Taking pure natural forms of Curcumin in your diet can be effective, however, adding a blended supplement can aid in proper absorption at the cellular level giving you better results.

In the age of COVID-19, it is more important than ever to ensure that your immune system is as strong and healthy as possible. Following quarantine restrictions, social distancing guidelines including wearing a mask in public and adding one of these important supplements to your diet can help boost your natural defenses.

As we all brave the eye of the storm that is the coronavirus pandemic, we’re doing our best to stay healthy by wearing masks, frequently washing our hands, getting our flu shots, social distancing, avoiding gatherings and staying in — but there’s another health precaution we should all be taking: our supplements. Immunity boosters can provide your body with the backup it needs to keep you healthy and give you more protection if you come in contact with COVID-19. They’ll also help you fight off viruses and infections that could weaken your immune system, which is an obvious no-no at the height of a pandemic.

While no supplements can specifically fight the coronavirus, equipping your body with an extra immunity boost can help your body do a better job at tackling the virus if you are exposed, and Doctors are recommending a slew of supplements right now. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, takes vitamin C and D to support his immune system. “If you’re deficient in vitamin D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection. I would not mind recommending—and I do it myself—taking vitamin D supplements,” Dr. Fauci said during an Instagram Live interview with Jennifer Garner.

Other doctors recommend zinc, which can help fight respiratory infections, and elderberry, another upper respiratory hero supplement.

These once-a-day supplements are made in the good ole USA and contain a magical mix of ingredients designed to combat icky menopausal symptoms. Black cohosh (an herb) and soy isoflavones alleviate the frequency—and intensity—of hot flashes and night sweats. Also, when you’re menopausal, serotonin levels go down, which makes you hungrier (ahh!). Synetrim CQ (Cissus Quadrangularis), which is a perennial plant in the grape family, helps to balance decreasing serotonin levels to keep weight gain in check.

Reviewers swear by this product for not only reducing menopausal symptoms, but eliminating them altogether! “Oh my gosh! Menopause symptoms gone,” says a five-star fan. “I can now sleep at night. I’m not waking up soaked or for any other reason. Formula has been changed from twice a day to once a day, which is wonderful.”

Each AZO Cranberry softgel has all the urinary tract benefits of one glass of cranberry juice. They’re also made with pacran, a super-concentrated whole fruit cranberry powder that helps flush your urinary tract.

People swear this helps prevent UTIs. “I thought I had a UTI starting up and started taking these two a day for a week and my symptoms went away,” a five-star reviewer wrote. “Since then I’ve been taking this as a UTI preventative and it seems to work well.”

8 Best Immune-Boosting Supplements That Actually Work, Say Doctors

8 Best Immune-Boosting Supplements That Actually Work, Say Doctors

  • January 6, 2021

While riding the crest of the COVID-19 pandemic in the middle of cold and flu season, you may be wondering which vitamin supplements to take to bolster your immune system and provide extra protection against whatever sneaks through your mask.

Before we suggest which pills to consider popping, remember what doctors say: the best immune-boosting supplement is not something that you buy over the counter and swallow with a glass of water. It’s more important to follow a healthy diet rich in foods that contain immune-supporting nutrients. It’s also important to get good sleep. Clinical studies have proven that extra sleep is your most powerful supplemental insurance to avoid getting sick. Research strongly suggests that sleep strengthens your immune system’s ability to remember invading pathogens like viruses and mount the proper defenses against them.

Inadequate sleep is not the only arrow that can pierce holes in your body’s immune defense. Stress, being out of shape, being overweight or obese, undernourishment, and nutritional deficiencies all can impair immune system responses. “Sometimes the ‘healthiest’ of eaters aren’t eating the right foods for a proper balance and absorption of nutrients, so that’s why supplements are often needed,” says Nicole Avena, PhD, a research neuroscientist at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York and author of What to Eat When You’re Pregnant. “You can work on filling nutritional gaps in your diet that could lead to nutrient deficiencies.”

No one food or supplement can prevent illness, but good nutritional variety, including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, E, probiotics, protein, and zinc on a regular basis, may offer protection from seasonal illnesses, according to The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and doctors, and nutritionists we consulted. Read on to find out which nutrients you should stock up on to bolster your immune system, and for more on healthy eating, don’t miss 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now.

“The best way to get your vitamins is through your food sources,” says Arielle Levitan, MD, an internal medicine physician, co-founder of Vous Vitamin and co-author with Rony Block, MD, of The Vitamin Solution: Two Doctors Clear the Confusion About Vitamins and Your Health. But your food may not be enough. “Even people who concentrate on eating enough fruits and vegetables can have trouble, because a lot of the food consumed comes from nutrient-depleted soil or have nutrient deterioration at the time of consumption,” Dr. Levitan says. “Many people need to supplement their diet with vitamins. And while there is no vitamin regimen to prevent illness, including COVID-19, taking the right vitamins can definitely help boost your immune system.”

All the experts contacted for this article stressed the importance of taking a personalized approach to selecting vitamins and minerals based on your needs and specific health issues and being aware of potential interactions with medications and other supplements. Consult your primary care physician to determine which supplements are safest for you.

“Remember, the FDA does not test for purity of supplements, so companies can market and label supplements as they wish,” says clinician-scientist Florence Comite, MD, founder of the Center for Precision Medicine & Health in New York City, and author of Keep It Up.

While shopping for the vitamins listed below, look for products that are tested by third-party labs. “Even if testing is available, companies sometimes test these products but do not necessarily stay vigilant,” says Dr. Comite. “Ideally, look for institutions that have a methodology for validity and keep on top of that methodology.”

Swallowing even the best supplements won’t do much good if your body doesn’t absorb those beneficial nutrients. “We need to address gut inflammation first because an unhealthy gut does not allow for the proper absorption of nutrients,” says Alexander Lightstone Borsand, MD, a board-certified lifestyle medicine physician in Scottsdale, Arizona. “This starts with probiotics and an anti-inflammatory diet. We need to first decrease sugars and red meat, which can cause inflammation, swelling, and ‘leaky gut:’ the inability to absorb the nutrients needed to enhance our immune system.”

A diet that combats inflammation includes vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fatty fish, plant-based proteins, and fresh herbs. Only after healing an inflamed gut can you effectively begin to grow the healthy gut flora that studies suggest may bolster immunity, says Dr. Borsand.

“The gut is said to house the immune system, and the delicate balance of the microbiome is important to keep the immune system strong and operating efficiently,” says nutritionist Lisa Richards, author of The Candida Diet. “Probiotic supplements can be an effective means of giving your immune system the extra boost it needs to get through a time of significant illness.”

For example, one clinical trial recruited people age 45 and under who reported getting the common cold or flu at least four times during the previous year. The double-blind, placebo-controlled trial tested people given a probiotic yogurt drink daily containing Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium against subjects given a placebo drink containing no probiotics. After 12 weeks, the participants who drank the probiotic yogurt experienced less than half of the upper respiratory infections that the placebo group did. In addition, the probiotics group showed significantly higher levels of immunoregulatory substances.

Ascorbic acid, better known as the water-soluble vitamin C, is what’s called an “essential vitamin” because our body doesn’t make it. You have to get this nutrient from your food or from supplements. Vitamin C has been long touted for its immune-boosting benefits of stimulating the formation of antibodies.

“Vitamin C is the queen of all-natural immune boosters,” says Carrie Lam, MD, co-founder of the Lam Clinic of Integrative Medicine in Tustin, CA. “It’s a powerful antioxidant that’s crucial for the health of capillaries, skin, teeth and bones and one of the most commonly recommended adrenal fatigue supplements.”

Vitamin C plays an important role in the creation of white blood cells that help fight infection and disease. It has been shown to accelerate wound healing and reduce the risk of heart disease. While getting vitamin C in your diet is critical for preventing immune system deficiencies, there’s not much clinical evidence that this immune booster nutrient can prevent colds or flu. Instead, studies of the effects of regular vitamin C supplementation have shown a modest 8% reduction in the duration of the illness in adults and a 14% reduction in children. Vitamin C also appeared to reduce the severity of symptoms.

“Vitamin C is generally safe to take as a supplement long-term even at relatively high doses so it’s a great addition to most supplement regimens as a means to defend against illnesses that could exacerbate symptoms,” says Trista Best, RD, a nutritionist and environmental health specialist at Balance One Supplements in Delaware.

Vitamin D is often called “the sunshine vitamin” because our bodies naturally produce it when we expose our skin to the sun. Is it any wonder then that an uptick in seasonal colds and flu coincides with wintertime when there’s little opportunity to bask in natural sunlight and many people have very low levels of vitamin D in their bodies? A 2017 meta-analysis published in the British Medical Journal showed that taking vitamin D supplements daily could help prevent colds and flu, especially in those people who were deficient in vitamin D. A separate more recent study found that vitamin D supplementation can decrease viral respiratory infection by 70% in people who are vitamin D deficient.
“Vitamin D is important to the function of the immune system and vitamin D supplements have previously been shown to lower the risk of viral respiratory tract infections,” said David Meltzer, MD, chief of hospital medicine at the University of Chicago Medicine and lead author of a recent study on vitamin D published in JAMA Network Open. “Our statistical analysis suggests this may be true for the COVID-19 infection.”

Before you rush to stock up on vitamin D, however, a precaution: “Vitamin D has lately surged in popularity and there is some evidence that people are over-consuming it,” warns Dr. Jessica Nouhavandi, PharmD, and co-founder of Honeybee Health, a compounding pharmacy in Los Angeles. “For most people, the recommended dose of vitamin D daily is 600 to 800 international units (IU).” A recent national survey pointed to an 18% increase in the number of people taking 1,000 IU or more daily.

Studies suggest that getting adequate amounts of vitamins B12 (cobalamin) and B9 (folic acid) based on individual needs is critical for immune system strength. “If there’s one place in the body that is the control center of immune response, it would be the pituitary gland, and this gland has the highest concentration of B12 in the body,” says nutritional psychiatrist Sheldon Zablow, MD, author of Your Vitamins are Obsolete. “So, a deficiency of B12 will adversely affect the body’s ability to heal and grow with a balanced immune response.” Dr. Zablow points out that B vitamin deficiencies, including inadequate folate, can trigger the immune system to overreact, causing chronic inflammation, “the source of nine out of the 10 leading causes of illness and death,” he says. Zablow recommends high-quality B12 and folate supplements because “current multivitamins contain B vitamins that are poorly made, poorly absorbed, and poorly metabolized,” he says.

Elderberry extract, honey, ginger, garlic, echinacea, and about a dozen other plants and herbs have been used as folk remedies for colds and flu for centuries. While they may not turbocharge your immune system, some studies show they offer relief and even speed recovery from these seasonal maladies. Zinc lozenges (but not zinc supplements in pill form) may help reduces symptoms of the common cold if taken with 23 hours of the start of symptoms, according to the National Institutes of Health. But more study is needed to determine the most effective dose and for how long treatment should last. “There are many supplements that are suggested to support the immune system but few are studied to the degree that vitamin C, D, elderberry extract, probiotics and even echinacea have in some cases,” says Jason Mitchell, ND, co-founder of HempFusion.com. “I would consider these to be the essential five immune-supporting items.”

If simplifying your life is your New Year’s resolution, start by taking a multivitamin; it’s a lot easier than trying to keep track of a handful of vitamin supplements to swallow every day. “Ideally one should take a personalized daily multivitamin which may contain doses of vitamin D, C, E and certain B vitamins that all help support ideal health on a year-round basis,” says Dr. Levitan. She stresses that the exact makeup of the multi and the proper dosage will vary from person to person based on their diet, lifestyle, health concerns, gender, and age. “At times of particular concern, such as when ill or feeling stressed or run down, extra vitamin D, vitamin C, and zinc can be useful,” she says. But, again, check with your physician before starting a new regimen of vitamin supplements. Otherwise, you could experience any of the 9 Dangers of Taking a Multivitamin Every Day, Say Experts.

Not taking an immunity booster? Now’s the time to start. (Photo: Amazon)

As we all brave the eye of the storm that is the coronavirus pandemic, we’re doing our best to stay healthy by wearing masks, frequently washing our hands, getting our flu shots, social distancing, avoiding gatherings and staying in — but there’s another health precaution we should all be taking: our supplements. Immunity boosters can provide your body with the backup it needs to keep you healthy and give you more protection if you come in contact with COVID-19. They’ll also help you fight off viruses and infections that could weaken your immune system, which is a no-no at the height of a pandemic.

While no supplements can specifically fight the coronavirus, equipping your body with an extra immunity boost can help you better fight off the virus, and Doctors are recommending a slew of supplements right now. Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, takes vitamin C and D to support his immune system. “If you’re deficient in vitamin D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection. I would not mind recommending—and I do it myself—taking vitamin D supplements,” Dr. Fauci said during an Instagram Live interview with Jennifer Garner.

Other doctors recommend zinc, which can help fight respiratory infections, and elderberry, another upper respiratory hero supplement.

“Between the months of November to March I was sick six times. I had more cold/flu days than healthy days. Everyone always said ‘you should take Airborne,’ and I would say ‘I take 2000mg of vitamin C a day and when I feel sick I take 3,000 and beat it.’ Since I have started taking Airborne [for one month] I have not been sick at all. This stuff works. I will never stop taking it,” says a rave reviewer.
