In times of increased physical stress (in cold and wet season, with increased physical stress), it is very important to take care of strong immune system. Healthy immune system is essential for overall health, since it is protecting the body from diseases and infections, and is necessary for normal body functioning. Because the body cannot produce vitamins and minerals by itself, they must be regularly and adequately supplied to the body through food and food supplements. Also, the storage capacity of certain nutrients in our body is limited. Therefore, for the normal functioning of the immune system and the protection of our cells against oxidative stress, a sufficient supply of certain nutrients is essential.
Vitamin C contributes to:
- normal function of the immune system during and after intensive physical activity
- normal energy metabolism
- reduces fatigue and exhaustion
Zinc contributes to:
- normal carbohydrate metabolism
- normal metabolism of macronutrients
- normal fatty acid metabolism
- normal protein synthesis
- normal function of the immune system
- protection of cells from oxidative stress
Zinc is one of the most important essential elements in our body, because it is involved in many body functions. It plays a crucial role in the healthy function of the immune system, which has a primary task to support and defend the body against diseases and infections. Since the body cannot produce or store zinc by itself, regular food intake should be considered. In the context of a balanced diet, the right choice of food is crucial.
Vitamin E and the trace element Selenium protect the cells from oxidative stress, moerover, selenium also contributes to the normal function of the immune system.
Histidine is a protein building block and is one of the essential amino acids. These must be taken regularly via the diet. Many vegetables contain only a small amount of histidine compared to animal food sources, which may require supplementing the diet with histidine, depending on your eating habits.
With vitamins and minerals in the form of food supplements it is easier to provide the needed micro-nutrients to the body.
The consequences of lack of micronutrient usually reflect in poor physical health, bad mood and feeling of weakness.
Recommended for athletes and individuals with poor diet or low energy intake.
Suitable also for individuals with a stressful lifestyle and those who are often exposed to difficult weather conditions.
The food is nowadays very poor, in terms of vitamins and minerals, therefore our organism often lacks certain micro-nutrients (vitamins, minerals ...).
