Zinc is a mineral that works synergistically with vitamin A in activating thymic factor, a thymus hormone with vital immune supporting properties.1 Maintaining optimal zinc levels also helps maintain helper T-cell lymphocyte function, NK cell activity, macrophage function, and antibody production.
Vitamin C is well known for its ability to support immune response. Vitamin C concentrations decline rapidly in the body during periods of stress. Dietary intake is therefore crucial during immune challenges.3 Vitamin C has been found to be helpful in supporting specific components of the immune system including NK cell activity and lymphocyte function. 3 Vitamin C also provides antioxidants for the support of good health.
