Supplements should be, as their name suggests, supplemental to a healthy diet and lifestyle. However, if you are looking to take supplements to “boost” your immune system, these would be my top picks:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Oil of Oregano
- Sambucus nigra (Elderberry)
- Mushroom blend
Unfortunately, there is no single product which contains all of these ingredients. I wish there were! However, it is possible to purchase some of them in combination. Below are 6 of the products which I have researched and trust which contain these ingredients.
When purchasing supplements, keep in mind that not all products are made equal. Often subpar ingredients may be used in generics or brands which do not have quality control. Be sure to look for brands labeled “pharmaceutical-grade” which have excellent quality-control.
I personally use an on-line pharmacy called Fullscript which carefully vets its manufacturers prior to offering their products. Click this LINK to create an account with Fullscript and view the Immune Support products which I have curated for myself and my family.
