Unique compound food supplement for the immune system
A+ Immunity is a uniquely formulated food supplement that contains a well-balanced dosage of vitamins C and D as well as the minerals zinc , copper and selenium , all of which are important for the normal functioning of the immune system [ 1 ] . A+ Immunity Also contains citrus bioflavonoids , a type of micronutrient, extracted from citrus fruits and which has been extensively studied for its possible synergistic effect on the absorption of vitamin C in the body [ 2 , 3 ] .
Extra high dose of vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of the most important nutrients for the normal functioning of the immune system [ 4 ] and A+ Immunity therefore contains an extra high dose of vitamin C, namely 400 mg per capsule. Lack of vitamin C can lead to weakness, fatigue and irritation [ 5 ] . More serious deficiencies can lead to scurvy, impaired wound healing and increased risk of infection [ 5 ] .
Zinc and vitamin D important for a strong immune system
Zinc is a vital mineral that is involved in almost 100 different body functions where it acts as a cofactor in more than 40 important enzyme reactions. Zinc is important for a healthy and strong immune system [ 1 , 6 , 7 ] and participates, among other things, in the production of T cells and protects the cells against oxidative stress. Zinc is one of the minerals that is most difficult for the body to absorb [ 8 ] .
Vitamin D is a vital hormone-like vitamin that contributes to the optimal functioning of the immune system [ 1 , 9 , 10] . Vitamin D is a vitamin that is very rare in food and during the winter months it is also difficult for the body to form enough vitamin D due to lack of exposure to sunlight.
The minerals copper and selenium protect against oxidative stress
Copper occurs mostly in the liver, brain, bone marrow and red blood cells, but is also stored in the muscles, bones and heart. One of copper's most important tasks is to contribute to a strong cardiovascular system, and copper also protects the body against oxidative stress [ 1 ] . Copper supports our immune system and contributes to the normal transport of iron in the body [ 1 ] .
Selenium is found in all body tissues except adipose tissue. Selenium is important for our immune system [ 1 , 11 ] and is one of the body's most important antioxidants and contributes to protecting cells against oxidative stress [ 1 ] . Selenium is also important for sperm production and thyroid function [ 1 ] .
