If you’re worried about the strength of your immune system, you’re not alone. With flu season just up ahead it’s wise to take precautionary action to help fight sickness before you get it.
First things first…
VITAMINS may be the ONLY thing you need to boost your immune system…
Our bodies require vitamins and minerals to create antibodies that fight off infections. We make and obtain many of these on our own, but in times like these, Dr. Dennis Harper suggests helping your body out with some moderate supplements.
- Vitamin A: When used on a short-term basis, Vitamin A can help support the body’s ability to fight infections, especially respiratory infections.
- Vitamin A also helps:
- Vision in dim light
- Keep skin and the lining of some parts of the body healthy
- Food Sources of Vitamin A:
- Cheese, eggs, milk, yogurt, fish, low-fat spreads, liver and liver products.
- Other Good Sources of Vitamin A:
