Weak Immunity

What are the signs of a weakened immune system?

  • Getting sick often and staying sicker for longer
  • Having infections that don’t clear up; they keep coming back over and over and won’t clear up with antibiotics
  • Experiencing long-lasting digestive problems such as having diarrhoea frequently
  • Feeling tired all the time
  • Any wound you have taking a long time to heal

What can cause a weakened immune system?

Your immune system can become weakened due to medications you are taking, health conditions you have as well as your lifestyle habits. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can also result in your white blood cells, the soldiers that defend your body against invaders, not responding as they should when under threat.

If these warning signs sound familiar, you need to give your immune system some extra attention.

Let’s look at the role of micronutrients when it comes to immunity

Nutrient levels are an important factor in making sure that your immune system is strong enough to fight off invaders.

Adequate intake of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) is required for the immune system to function well.

Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and Folic acid as well as trace elements Iron, Zinc, Copper, and selenium work in synergy to support the protective activities of immune cells.

Overall, not getting enough of these vitamins and trace elements may lead to a weakened immune system which can predispose you to infections.

The strength of your immune function can vary due to genetics, age, gender, smoking habits, exercise levels, alcohol consumption, diet, as well as stress.
