The immune system is a network that defends the body from invaders, including viruses, bacteria, and other infections. It fights what it detects as something that doesn’t belong, or may be dangerous. A lot of the time, an immune response can be shown to us through inflammation or fever. So, what we may consider to be the “proof” of an illness is actually the proof that our immune system is doing its proper job.
Each person has a tailor-made immune system. Unfortunately, this can mean that some people will have overactive immune responses, where they have to deal with these symptoms more frequently, or their body defends against something that it has incorrectly identified as dangerous. Others can be immunocompromised, which means their system doesn’t react well to invaders, and they are more susceptible to the effects of viruses and infections.
Whatever the situation you find yourself in, there are ways to support your immune system. Just remember that you aren’t really trying to change the way your immune system works, but giving it the tools to stay balanced, so it does its job properly, and achieves homeostasis.
What is an Immune System Booster Spray?
Immune system booster sprays aim to bring those tools your system needs to fight off bodily invaders to you, in a handy and portable spray that can be applied nasally or sublingually. They often have ingredients that have been proven to help support your immune system, as well as mitigate the symptoms you have from common complaints like a cold or allergies.
While booster sprays are not a substitute for medications (especially for more severe illnesses like strep or the flu), they can provide a helping hand to your immune system.
Things like washing your hands often, reducing your exposure to others that may be sick, a healthy diet, proper sleep, and not smoking are also important if you want your immune system to be at its best.
What Ingredients Can Be Found in Immune Boosting Sprays?
Vitamin C: An important antioxidant found in citrus fruits, this element helps to neutralize harmful free radicals, control infections, and even heal wounds. It’s water-soluble but doesn’t store well within the body, so for best results, Vitamin C must be consumed on a consistent basis.
Another key aspect of Vitamin C is that it is able to help with the absorption of non-heme iron, which is often found in leafy greens. Ingesting Vitamin C in closer proximity to meals with iron-rich foods will allow the body to better absorb that iron.
Vitamin D: When taken in suitable doses, Vitamin D is a safe nutrient that your body needs in order to build and maintain healthy bones. Calcium can only be absorbed by the body when Vitamin D is present, so it’s crucial during almost any phase of life, but especially during puberty and for the elderly, when bone strength is necessary.
Unlike Vitamin C, Vitamin D is not found in as varied food sources, so an immune-boosting spray is a way to make sure you’re getting a regular dose.
Vitamin E: This antioxidant also neutralizes free radicals that can damage cells, and is found in nuts and seeds like sunflower seeds, almonds, and peanuts. Vitamin E is also a component in pumpkin, red bell peppers, mango, and avocado.
Studies indicate that Vitamin E supports the immune system through the elimination and reduction of free radicals that directly affect certain artery-clogging behavior. This behavior can contribute to some chronic conditions, but it’s important to know that Vitamin E should be used as a supplement, not as a substitution of other medications and health management advice given by a doctor.
Zinc: This nutrient is found in many food sources that include: chicken, red meat, and breakfast cereals that have been fortified. Like Vitamin C, Zinc is important in wound healing and the natural functioning of your immune system and metabolism.
It’s not really common to have a zinc deficiency in the US, but oral zinc can be used to help treat colds. If taken within 24 hours of the first cold symptoms, there is evidence that zinc can even shorten the length of the cold.
CBD: This powerful ingredient can do many things, thanks to the fact that it uses the cannabinoid receptors located all over the body (externally and internally) to access the endocannabinoid system that helps regulate every other system, but especially the immune system. CBD does the work of an antioxidant, anti-fungal, antiseptic, and antibiotic.
If you need something that has the multifunctional purpose of supporting and creating the elements you need for your immune system to operate properly and consistently, you cannot go wrong with CBD.
