Did you know that boosting your immune system helps to lower your chances for getting cancer and slows the aging process and helps you not get cancer?


Vitamin C.
Did you know that Vitamin C has had more research about the immune-boosting effects of Vitamin C than perhaps any other nutrient?

Did you know that Vitamin C increases the production of infection-fighting white blood cells and antibodies and increases levels of interferon, the antibody that coats cell surfaces, preventing the entry of viruses?

Did you know that Vitamin C reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by raising levels of HDL (good) cholesterol while lowering blood pressure and interfering with the process by which fat is converted to plaque in the arteries?

Did you know that a persons whose diets are higher in vitamin C have lower rates of colon, prostate, and breast cancer?

Vitamin E.
Did you know that vitamin E is an important antioxidant and immune booster, it doesn't get as much press as vitamin C, yet it's important to a healthy immune system?

Did you know that Vitamin E stimulates the production of natural killer cells, those that seek out and destroy germs and cancer cells?

Did you know that Vitamin E enhances the production of B-cells, the immune cells that produce antibodies that destroy bacteria?

Did you know that Vitamin E supplementation may also reverse some of the decline in immune response commonly seen in aging?

Did you know that Vitamin E has been implicated in lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease, but you need 100-400 milligrams per day, depending on your general lifestyle?

Did you know that people who don't exercise, who smoke, and who consume high amounts of alcoholic beverages will need the higher dosage, Those with a more moderate lifestyle can get by with lower levels of supplementation?

Carotenoids.
Did you know that Beta carotene increases the number of infection-fighting cells, natural killer cells, and helper T-cells, as well as being a powerful antioxidant that mops up excess free radicals that accelerate aging?

Did you know that the "big three" antioxidants, vitamins C and E, it reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease by interfering with how the fats and cholesterol in the bloodstream oxidize to form arterial plaques?

Did you know that Studies have shown that beta carotene can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, especially strokes and heart attacks, giving scientific credence to the belief that a carrot a day can keep the heart surgeon away?

Did you know that Beta carotene also protects against cancer by stimulating the immune cells called macrophages to produce tumor necrosis factor, which kills cancer cells?

 Did you know that the body converts beta carotene to vitamin A, which itself has anticancer properties and immune-boosting functions?

Did you know that too much vitamin A can be toxic to the body, so it's better to get extra beta carotene from foods and let the body naturally regulate how much of this precursor is converted to the immune-fighting vitamin A?

Did you know it's highly unlikely that a person could take in enough beta carotene to produce a toxic amount of vitamin A, because when the body has enough vitamin A, it stops making it?

Bioflavenoids.

Did you know that a group of phytonutrients called bioflavenoids aids the immune system by protecting the cells of the body against environmental pollutants?

Did you know that Bioflavenoids also reduce the cholesterol's ability to form plaques in arteries and lessen the formation of microscopic clots inside arteries, which can lead to heart attack and stroke?

Did you know that studies have shown that people who eat the most bioflavenoids have less cardiovascular disease?

Did you know that a diet that contains a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, at least six servings per day, will help you get the bioflavenoids needed to help your immune system work in top form? 

Zinc.

Did you know that this valuable mineral increases the production of white blood cells that fight infection and helps them fight more aggressively?

Did you know that Zinc also increases killer cells that fight against cancer and helps white cells release more antibodies?

Did you know that Zinc supplements have been shown to slow the growth of cancer?

Did you know that Zinc increases the number of infection-fighting T-cells, especially in elderly people who are often deficient in zinc, and whose immune system often weakens with age?
Did you know that too much zinc in the form of supplements (more than 75 milligrams a day) can inhibit immune function?
Did you know it's safest to stick to getting zinc from your diet and aim for 15 to 25 milligrams a day?

Did you know that the best source of zinc for infants and young children is zinc-fortified cereals?


Garlic.

Did you know that this flavorful member of the onion family is a powerful immune booster that stimulates the multiplication of infection-fighting white cells, boosts natural killer cell activity, and increases the efficiency of antibody production?

Did you know that garlic may protect against cancer, cultures with a garlic-rich diet have a lower incidence of intestinal cancer?

Did you know that garlic may also play a part in getting rid of potential carcinogens and other toxic substances?

Did you know that it is also a heart-friendly food since it keeps platelets from sticking together and clogging tiny blood vessels?

Selenium.

Did you know that this mineral increases natural killer cells and mobilizes cancer-fighting cells?

Did you know that the best food sources of selenium are tuna, red snapper, lobster, shrimp, whole grains, vegetables (depending on the selenium content of the soil they're grown in), brown rice, egg yolks, cottage cheese, chicken (white meat), sunflower seeds, garlic, Brazil nuts, and lamb chops?

Omega-3 fatty acids.
Did you know that a  study found that children taking a half teaspoon of flax oil a day experienced fewer and less severe respiratory infections and fewer days of being absent from school?

Did you know that the omega 3 fatty acids in flax oil and fatty fish (such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel) act as immune boosters by increasing the activity of phagocytes, the white blood cells that eat up bacteria?

Did you know that essential fatty acids also protect the body against damage from over-reactions to infection?

Did you know that when taking essential fatty acid supplements, such as flax or fish oils, take additional vitamin E, which acts together with essential fatty acids to boost the immune system?

Did you know that you can get more omega-3 fatty acids in your diet, when you add one to three teaspoons of flax oil to a fruit and yogurt smoothie?
