What are the best vitamins & supplements to take to build my immune system?

Overview

That is a common misconception; your immune system is not built. It is only maintained. You compromise it- and therefore get sick- by practicing bad lifestyle habits; to maintain immune system health, you must make sure you are exercising regularly, eating your micronutrients and macronutrients, and keeping a positive mind.

Drinking a green juice does help your immune system because it provides essential nutrients and antioxidants however; one of the best things you can do for your overall health is to not put poison and inflammation into your body.

While vitamins and supplements can help fill in the gaps in your diet, the best way to load up on essential nutrients is to get them straight from food. Your body absorbs and uses vitamins and nutrients better when they come from a dietary source.

When it’s a vitamin or supplement,  it’s often questionable how much you’re actually getting. Because supplements are regulated as foods, not as drugs, the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t evaluate the quality of supplements or assess their effects on the body.

With all that said, what shall follow is a comprehensive list that should help you on your journey to optimal health.
