We are currently going through a Corona-virus spread which is causing a lot of stress and anxiety for some people. The guidelines for better hygiene are well documented at this stage. What hasn’t been broadcast is the effective use of Vitamin C for viral infections, vitamin D and Zinc to help support the immune system. Thank-fully, the Irish Examiner have recently published an article on the benefits of using Vitamin D and we are ever hopeful that more will come from trials being carried out in other countries. The use of vitamins and their efficacy is not new, it is well documented from doctors such as Abrahm Hoffer, his son John Hoffer and Joe Mercola that vitamin C therapy not only works, but it has zero side effects. Unfortunately main stream news are not very forth-coming with the information. If you have time, watch That Vitamin Movie for more details and statistics. China are currently shipping Vitamin C in by the container load as well as doing clinical trials on therapeutic doses, which are proving extremely positive! If you are not familiar with the health benefits of this amazing vitamin, let me tell you about some of them…….
- Vitamin C is an essential water soluble vitamin, which means that any excess is excreted through the urine. Keeping levels of C high is vital for better efficiency
- It is the most effective antioxidant
- In high enough doses it can prevent colds & flu’s
- Very safe
- A lot of people find high dose vitamin C very good for immunodeficiency, chronic toxin or infectious problems
- Anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory
- Good for mood
- Supports skin & bone health
- Good for a wide array of conditions, including histamine intolerance
- You can’t make Vitamin C and you can’t store it – hence the need to keep replacing it throughout the day
Theres a reason why Vitamin C is the most well-known and highly regarded vitamin in the world: This antioxidant affects many of the bodies systems, including the vascular system and natural defences.
The bottom line is that Vitamin C is one of the best supplements you can take when you are under threat from a viral infection. You need to take higher doses – 1000mg every few hours. More if you get ill with a virus! If you reach saturation point of C, in other words your body can’t take anymore, you will experience either a rumbling tummy or a loose bowel movement…..just pull back on the dosage.
Please find them in the Supplement section of the site which will give you more details.
Boosting your immune system during this time is going to be an investment in your health. We have several ways for you to do this…….
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Olive Leaf Extract
- Lemon Balm

Our recommendations for the coming months of Autumn & Winter……
Vitamin D is an essential supplement for the winter season. Shorter days and less sunlight will inevitably create a shortage. Research shows that it helps regulate the immune system lowering the risk of infection, mood issues, heart disease and autoimmune conditions. It is the essential nutrient that helps the body form and maintain healthy bones and teeth.
Vitamin C is a potent immune stimulating nutrient. It has been shown to inhibit viral replication and may reduce the severity of the common cold. It is a powerful antioxidant – protecting the cellular structures, it is essential for the healthy production of collagen synthesis required for bone, skin and tendon formation…..amongst other things!
Beta Glucans are types of fiber found in the cells of certain types of yeast, algae, bacteria, and fungi. They help to strengthen the immune system and prevent upper respiratory tract infections.
Probiotics are showing, through much research and studies, that over the last several decades, that they can and are effective in bolstering the immune system. Findings from those studies have shown that probiotics do, in fact, appear to improve the body’s immune response. That in turn helps the body be better prepared to fight off certain infections, including the common cold.
Zinc is often referred too as the forgotten supplement. Yet its role in the regulating and controlling the immune system is well documented. Zinc deficiency can severely impair immune system function. Evidence suggests that if zinc is taken within 24 hours after cold symptoms start, the supplement can help shorten the length of colds.
If you are unsure about what you need coming into the winter months please feel free to call in where we can help guide you.
