Private Labeling: Immune Vitamins

It is inevitable that your body will be under attack by some form of virus or bacteria at some point or another. While many people will just tough it out and wait to feel better, they forget that they can do things to prevent this. One of the best things you can do to prevent yourself from getting sick is by eating a balanced diet, full of the vitamins and nutrients that are needed to boost the immune system. Many people fall short on their nutrient intake. This is where supplements come in. Continue reading to learn more about immune-boosting vitamins and private label immune-boosting supplements.

What Are The Immune-Boosting Vitamins?

Vitamin C

Ascorbic acid, otherwise known as vitamin C is one of the most well known of the immune-boosting vitamins. In the body, this vitamin serves as an antioxidant that can help fight against free radicals. It is also used to help wounds heal properly. In addition, when it comes to immune-boosting, vitamin C is an excellent nutrient. This is because scurvy, also known as vitamin C deficiency can leave you with a weakened immune system.

One review study of 148 different studies looked into vitamin C and in relation to infections. The researchers came to the conclusion that “vitamin C plays a role in preventing, shortening, and alleviating diverse infections.” The review found that these infections could range from the common cold all the way to pneumonia.

Vitamin C is also a water-soluble nutrient meaning that the body does not store it anywhere and gets rid of it each day through urine. This makes it extremely important to make sure you are getting enough of it. The National Institutes of Health give the following as daily recommended amounts for vitamin C.

Age Recommended Daily Amount
0-6 Months40 mg
7-12 Months50 mg
1-3 Years15 mg
4-8 Years25 mg
9-13 Years45 mg
14-18 Boys75 mg
14-18 Girls65 mg
Adult Men90 mg
Adult Women75 mg
Pregnant Women85 mg
Breastfeeding Women120 mg

You can get vitamin C from many different sources such as citrus fruits. Some of the best of these are oranges and grapefruit, however, there is one food that contains almost double the amount of vitamin C, bell peppers. In addition to certain fruits and vegetables, many other foods and drinks have been fortified with added vitamin C.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is another immune-boosting vitamin. It is used to help absorb calcium to maintain strong bones. Almost every part of the body needs vitamin D to function properly. Vitamin D plays an integral role in the immune system as it used to help fight off invading viruses and bacteria. It is important to get the recommended daily amount as dictated by the National Institutes of Health.

AgeRecommended Daily Amount
0-12 Months400 IU
1-12 Years600 IU
14-18 Years600 IU
19-17 Years600 IU
71+ Years800 IU
Pregnant & Breastfeeding Women600 IU

You can get adequate amounts of vitamin D from the foods that you eat, though some people find it necessary to also take a supplement (especially during the winter months). Some foods high in vitamin D are fatty fish and cheese. However, the main source of vitamin D for people is the light from the sun thus giving it the name, “the sunshine vitamin”. Your body can only produce vitamin D when the skin comes into direct contact with the sun.

Unlike vitamin C, vitamin D is one of the many fat-soluble vitamins. This means that the body stores it up when it does not use it and keeps it for later use. This makes it possible for excessive amounts of vitamin D to build up in the body. This is why it is only recommended that if you are already getting enough, you do not start a vitamin D supplement.

Vitamin E

In the body, vitamin E serves as an antioxidant with vitamin C to help fight off free radicals. Vitamin E is also used in the cells to help them function and interact with each other. In addition to both of those, vitamin E is needed to boost the immune system to help fight off viruses and bacteria. The National Institute of Health reminds people to get the recommended daily amount of vitamin E.

AgeRecommended Daily Amount
0-6 Months4 mg
7-12 Months5 mg
1-3 Years6 mg
4-8 Years7 mg
9-13 Years11 mg
14-18 Years15 mg
Adults15 mg
Pregnant women15 mg
Breastfeeding Women19 mg

Some of the most common sources of Vitamin E are nuts and nut oils. Almonds and sunflower seeds contain some of the highest levels of vitamin E. In addition to that, avocados, Atlantic salmon, and rainbow trout also contain small amounts of it, meaning you have a wide variety of foods to choose from.

As with vitamin D, this nutrient is a fat-soluble vitamin meaning you do not want to get too much of it as your body won’t have an easy means of removing it. However, getting too much of it is very rare and will usually only happen when someone excessively supplements the vitamin.
