    Boosting Your Immune System

    Boosting Your Immune System

    The immune system is complex, and there is a lot of research on how different nutrients impact it. Before you buy any supplements, please make sure you are already making it a priority to cover the basics, including eating healthy, sleep, hydration, and exercise. No amount of immune-boosting supplements or superfoods will make up for the basics you need to keep your immune system running effectively. If you have these basics in place, you may want to consider additional supplements to boost your immune system.
     
    There could easily be an entire episode on each of the immune-boosting supplements covered here, including folate and folic acid, vitamins A, C, D, E, zinc, selenium, antioxidants, glutathione, PQQ, herbal immune support, echinacea, elderberry, probiotics, mushrooms, and choline. This episode is an overview of the risks, benefits, safety, and evidence available on these supplements' ability to boost your immune system during pregnancy.
     
    As always, please talk to your doctor or midwife about any supplements you are considering taking. That includes any herbs or over-the-counter vitamins or supplements.

    Supporting Your Immune System

    Supporting Your Immune System

    Your immune system is what keeps you healthy and helps to fight off infection. The classic perspective is that pregnancy suppresses your immune system. Advancements in our understanding of the immune system during pregnancy paint a more colorful picture. We now see the placenta as an immune regulatory organ. An intricate symphony is going on in your immune system to protect both you and your baby during pregnancy. A more accurate way to describe it would be that pregnancy suppresses some aspects of your immune system and enhances others. Listen to this episode to learn how you can support your immune system when you are pregnant.
