Vital Role of Zinc
Zinc is involved in virtually every aspect of the immune response. Adequate levels are essential for the healthy functioning of every cell in the body. The beneficial effects of zinc are extensive because this mineral is the body’s most abundant intracellular (i.e., inside the cells) trace element and at least 200 zinc-dependent enzymes have been identified.
Some individuals are poor absorbers of this mineral, but most cases of zinc deficiency are due to poor diet, chronic stress, vegetarianism or excessive alcohol intake. Some deficiencies result from exposure to toxic metals, such as cadmium from cigarettes or excess copper from copper-lined tap water pipes.
Zinc supports the actions of specific white blood cells that work to support the body’s immune system response to various pathogens. It is required for producing thymulin (the major thymus hormone) and therefore for the proper function of the thymus, the primary lymphoid organ where immune cells mature. A reduction of thymulin may lead to impaired immune function.
Elderberry Supports Immune Health
Elderberry, commonly referred to as European elder, is grown in most parts of Europe, North Africa, West Asia, and now the U.S., and nearly every part of the plant is utilized medicinally, as dietary supplements or for culinary purposes. The flowers and berries of Sambucus nigra are most often used medicinally and contain a variety of flavonoids that support healthy immune system function.
Of all fresh fruits or berries, elderberry measures as one of the highest in antioxidant capacity and is one of the most commonly used botanicals in the world due to its immunologic properties and effects on inflammatory processes within the body.
Take 1 lozenge per day, let dissolve slowly in mouth, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
