As we enter fall, it’s time to start thinking about how to keep our immune systems strong and healthy. CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ has the perfect plant-based formula to support your immune health this season! Packed with powerful ingredients like Vitamin C, Magnesium, Zinc and Vitamin D, CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ helps you feel the effects of better health and immune protection the natural way. In today’s blog we break down how each of the vitamins and minerals in CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ help support the immune system.
What is the Immune System?
The immune system is an intricate and sophisticated biological system that defends the body from foreign, invading organisms. Maintaining our immune defense systems can help lower the incidence of infection, lessen the severity of symptoms, and decrease the length of illness from the common cold and other illnesses.
How Does CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ Support the Immune System?
CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ is a natural electrolyte replacement drink that may help support healthy immune function, especially when the risk of contracting illness is high. CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ has immune-supporting ingredients like Vitamin D and Zinc that may support optimal health and nourishment.
In one 12 oz serving of CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+, there are 40 calories and no added sugar. Additionally, it contains 25% of the recommended daily values (DV) of Vitamin D and Zinc, 100% of the DV of Vitamin C, 20% of the DV of Selenium, 15% of the DV of Phosphorus, 4% of the DV of Potassium, and 10% of the DV of Magnesium.
Each vitamin and mineral are crucial to support a healthy, fully functioning immune system. Drinking CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ can help meet the recommended daily amounts (RDA) of specific vitamins and minerals that support immunity. Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and a well-balanced diet is crucial, but CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ is an excellent addition to any healthy diet.
What is Each Vitamin and Mineral’s Role in the Immune System?
Vitamin D plays an essential role in immune health. Its function is to regulate adaptive immune responses. Recent data has shown that Vitamin D deficiency appears to increase susceptibility to certain illnesses. Additionally, cross-sectional studies associate lower levels of Vitamin D with increased infection. One study showed that individuals with lower Vitamin D levels were more likely to have recent upper respiratory tract infections than those with sufficient Vitamin D levels.. Consuming just one serving of CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ meets 25% of the DV of Vitamin D.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps the formation of collagen. As an antioxidant, Vitamin C protects against environmental oxidative stress. Vitamin C deficiency leads to impaired immunity and increased infection. Vitamin C can readily donate electrons and, in turn, protect from damage by oxidants. Vitamin C also plays a crucial role in promoting wound healing. Consuming one serving of CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ provides 100% of the DV of Vitamin C.
Selenium is a mineral that is not as commonly discussed as Zinc, Vitamin C, or Vitamin D as it relates to immune health. Selenium is also an antioxidant that helps support the immune system. It plays an essential role in our body, and adequate amounts promote optimal health. Sufficient quantities of Selenium are needed to initiate immunity and regulate excessive immune response and chronic inflammation.. Research has shown that selenium deficiency negatively affects the immune cells and leads to increased oxidative stress. One serving of CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ has 20% of the DV of Selenium.
Magnesium is necessary for healthy muscle function. Magnesium supports glucose metabolism and plays a vital role in the use of energy-rich compounds. Exercise may deplete Magnesium, and the ability to perform physical work is sometimes compromised. The immune function may also temporarily suffer during bouts of prolonged exercise or excessive training. Sometimes, this can lead to infection. Replacing Magnesium is crucial, so consuming CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ after a workout is ideal. Magnesium also has a strong relationship with the immune system. Magnesium deficiency may pose a risk to the immune system and lead to an inflammatory response. There is 10% of the DV of Magnesium in one serving of CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+.
Zinc strengthens the immune system and promotes healthy cell function. Plasma Zinc levels decline during bacterial infections, and dietary Zinc deficiency predisposes individuals to certain infectious diseases. Zinc may also strengthen immunity by defending against harmful internal macrophages and decreasing oxidative stress. There is 25% of the DV of Zinc in one serving of CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+.
Phosphorus is vital for cellular function, acid-base balance, and cellular structure. If phosphorus becomes low, it can be life-threatening. CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ contains 15% of the DV of Phosphorus.
