Opinion by Jake Crossman
In March of 2020, a massive pandemic shut down the entire world. Stay-at-home orders were put into place, people couldn’t leave their homes without fear of catching the dreaded Coronavirus. Nothing like this had happened in America for over 100 years since the Spanish flu in the early 1900s. The entire world was thrust into chaos, misinformation, and fear of the unknown. Immune support for Covid-19 became a very hot-button topic to discuss.
Now, almost two and half years after the first stay-at-home orders were put into place the world is returning to some sense of normalcy. If there is one thing that the virus did change forever it was the way that humans looked at their health. Humanity realized that taking care of themselves and being more health conscious was an important part of preventing a virus like this from ever happening again.
With this realization came a plethora of information about what supplements to take, what kind of medicine would make you a healthier person, and how to access these products. USA Medical has made it simple with our Immune Support. Our company has designed an immune support product that envelops anything that you might need to strengthen your body’s immune system, so you can live life with less fear of whatever illness might be out in the world. Let’s take a look at exactly how our Immune Support can benefit you and the science behind it.
Immune Support Supplements Intro
Before we get into what specific supplements are needed to strengthen your immune systems you should probably know exactly what the immune system is and its function.
“Our immune system, a network of intricate stages and pathways in the body, protects us against these harmful microbes as well as certain diseases. It recognizes foreign invaders like bacteria, viruses, and parasites and takes immediate action. Humans possess two types of immunity: innate and adaptive (HarvardHealth).”
The innate part of your immune system is the body’s first line of defense in preventing foreign bacteria or illnesses from entering the body. This would include skin, mucus, stomach acid, enzymes, and immune system cells. All of these are naturally built-in bodily defenses against unwanted pathogens. The skin being your very first line of defense is one of the most important parts of the body for several reasons but is crucial in defending against illness – taking vitamins and supplements that will improve skin health is vital to increasing the strength of your body’s defense.
Adaptive immunity is when your body is able to recognize a pathogen and defend against it by creating antibodies. These antibodies then lead to the creation of more immune cells specific to the certain pathogen, which are then attacked and killed by the immune cells. White blood cells are the most commonly recognizable immune cell. This system is regulated by our spleen, thymus, bone marrow, and lymph nodes. The reason adaptive immunity works is once that pathogen tries to enter the body again, your cells remember their specific function and then can easily destroy these foreign substances once again.
While your immune system does work hard to prevent any pathogens from entering and compromising health there are several conditions that can trigger an immune response. Antigens are probably the most common, the best example of this would be allergies from dust or pollen. These small antigens can enter your body and trigger an immune response if you are allergic to certain substances.
There are two conditions that will severely weaken you regardless of how strong your immune system is. The first is something called an Autoimmune Disorder. This a disorder in which healthy immune cells start attacking healthy normal cells in your body. The second is an Immunodeficiency Disorder. This may be genetically transmitted or picked up – examples of immunodeficiency disorders include AIDS, Multiple Myeloma, and Leukemia. This disorder severely weakens your immune defenses so you are much more susceptible to pathogen-related illnesses (HarvardHealth).
This is why in the hustle and bustle of everyday life taking an immune supplement to help aid in defending your body against disease is crucial to staying healthy.
Immune Support For Covid 19: Other Benefits
Covid-19 shifted the way that a lot of people look at health. Understanding that along with getting proper sleep, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining a healthy weight – supporting your immune system will prevent you from getting sick as frequently, and less severely, if or when a foreign pathogen enters your body.
Studies have shown that vitamins A, C, E, and B6, are able to strengthen immune response, as well as Zinc, Selenium, and Copper. Specifically Vitamin A, and Zinc are important because they are responsible for regulating cell reproduction and can ramp up immune cell proliferation.
“In these cases a vitamin and mineral supplement may help to fill nutritional gaps. Studies have shown that vitamin supplementation can improve immune responses in these groups. [8-10] (HarvardHealth).”
A lot of immune support supplements claim to be helpful but are actually lacking in several areas. Especially immune support tablets which are compressed with heat. These tablets offer little to no nutritional value at all. This is why doctors will tell you to increase your vitamin intake via your diet.
USA Medical has created Immune Support Capsules. These capsules are meant to fill in where nutritional gaps may be happening. The reason we provide these supplements in capsule form is because they break down rapidly and there are more vitamins packed into a capsule than any other type of supplement. Along with all of the nutrients above USA Medical adds in turmeric and elderberry, both of which have tons of research done on them about the benefits they have to strengthening your bodies defenses. All of our Immune Support supplement ingredients are organic and clinically backed and researched for maximum efficacy.
Immune Support For Covid-19: Final Thoughts
When the Covid-19 pandemic first came to the United States it was a very real wakeup call to all Americans to start investing in their health. Even if you didn’t ever catch the virus, preventative measures are still very important to ensure nothing like this happens ever again. Understanding overall health, and what your body might be lacking became common practice among most.
USA Medical wants to be at the forefront of these supplements and improve your health. We understand that getting proper sleep, eating healthy every day, exercising, diet, etc. are very difficult things to religiously stick to in this busy world. That is why we curated a supplement that will fill in nutritional gaps and can be taken with water first thing in the morning when you wake up.
Much like the planet, you must also take care of your body. This starts with your first line of defense, the immune system. Try taking a daily supplement and you might just be surprised at how much better you will feel.
“A better understanding of the role of nutrients in immune function will facilitate the use of bespoke nutrition to improve human health (NCBI).”
