A strong immune system is the body’s defense against non-desirable and illness-causing agents like microbes and viruses. Furthermore, a strong immune system is indispensable to effectively manage and recover once infected. Several micronutrients such as vitamins A, B6, C, D and E, omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), selected trace elements, such as zinc and selenium, and polyphenols support the development and maintenance of a strong immune system. Therefore, adequate intake and consumption of these micronutrients are a cost-effective and efficient way to boost immunity. The below whitepaper elaborates on the role of each of them play in favor of the human immune system.
