List of 8 Vitamins & Minerals you need for a Healthy Immune System: Immunity is the capacity to withstand infection. Everyone’s goal is to be as healthy as feasible. Although we cannot influence our immune response to every cold, we can boost our immune system. If you truly care about your overall health, it is crucial that you take good care of your immune system, and one of the best ways to do so is to consume healthy supplements that are rich in the vitamins and minerals necessary for the development and function of immune cells. Our immune system must operate optimally in order to defend us from disease and foreign invaders.

How exactly does the immune system function?

The immune system is a complex network of cells, tissues, and organs with specialised functions. Collectively, they generate various types of cells that aid the body’s defence against infections and other diseases through a variety of mechanisms. Your immune system defends your body against hazardous or foreign substances. These compounds are known as antigens. When an antigen is recognised by the immune system, it is attacked. The term for this is immune response. Antibodies are a component of this response. Antibodies are proteins that attack, degrade, and eliminate antigens. Additionally, the immune system has a memory, meaning that it recalls old infections/antigens and is quicker to respond the next time the same organism attacks.

Your immune system protects your body from disease and infection, so it is essential to maintain it in optimal condition.

List of 8 Vitamins & Minerals you need for a Healthy Immune System

Who wouldn’t want the most robust and healthy immune system possible? Do you understand the role vitamins and minerals play in protecting the body against bacteria, viruses, toxins, and other pathogens?
Here is a list of some of the vitamins and minerals found in ForMen supplements that are essential to immune health –

1. Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant that occurs naturally in the human body and has been extensively utilised as an antioxidant in clinical settings. Alpha Lipoic Acid provides essential supplemental support to all immune cells. It may have immunomodulatory effects on both the adaptive and innate immune systems, according to studies. Alpha Lipoic Acid controls the immune system’s response to certain viruses, such as the common cold and flu.

2. Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is a potent molecule that occurs naturally in the human body and is essential for mitochondrial function. It is known to boost vitality, strengthen the immune system, and function as an antioxidant. Coenzyme Q10 supplements play a crucial role in the production of cellular energy, bolstering the immune system and physical performance, and acting as a free radical scavenger.

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is beneficial to the immune system because it aids in the production of new white blood cells, which aid in the body’s natural defence against infections. If you lack Vitamin C in your diet, your body will produce fewer white blood cells, resulting in a compromised immune system and an increased likelihood of becoming ill. Vitamin C has a reputation for boosting the immune system. As an antioxidant, vitamin C combats free radicals in the body, thereby preventing numerous malignancies and cardiovascular diseases and promoting healthy ageing.

4. Vitamin E

Vitamin E, like vitamin C, is a potent antioxidant that helps maintain cell membranes and prevents infection-related damage. In addition to combating invading bacteria and viruses, it helps dilate blood vessels and prevents blood clotting. It has been demonstrated that vitamin E supplementation above the current dietary recommendations improves immune function and reduces the risk of infection.

5. Vitamin D

Vitamin D, also known as the sunlight vitamin, is one of the most vital and potent immune-supporting nutrients. It is perhaps best known for its positive effects on bone health, but it also plays a crucial role in enhancing our innate and adaptive immune responses. The potent vitamin instructs the body to produce immune-boosting compounds, such as antimicrobial proteins that prevent the body from becoming ill.

6. Selenium

Selenium is an indispensable mineral that bolsters immunity, fertility, and cognitive function. As an antioxidant, this mineral appears to have a powerful influence on the immune system, removing free radicals linked to cancer, heart disease, inflammation, premature ageing, and more. It also bolsters the immune system by feeding the antibodies that develop resistance to illness.

7. Zinc

Zinc is an essential mineral required for the production of new immune system cells and is present in all body cells. It is essential to ingest zinc on a daily basis because the body cannot store the mineral. Zinc aids cognitive function, maintains healthy hormone levels, synthesises DNA and proteins, and strengthens the immune system to combat invading bacteria and viruses.

8. Green Tea Extract Eight

It is well-known that green tea has health benefits. It predominantly affects the immune system. One of the beneficial compounds found in green tea has a potent ability to increase the number of “regulatory T cells” that play a crucial role in immune function and suppression of autoimmune disease. Additionally, it promotes healthy skin and liver, lowers blood fat levels, regulates blood pressure, and improves cognitive health.


Inadequate sustenance is one of the primary causes of a weakened immune system. In reality, vitamin and mineral supplements are most effective as an immune system booster. If your immune system is compromised due to a deficiency in a particular vitamin or mineral, supplementing it with ForMen nutrients may result in improvements.
