The immune system is a complex system of specialized cells and biological responses integrated into the entire body, from digestion to brain chemistry and everywhere else in the body. There is a large body of proven research about how certain vitamins and minerals may support the immune system. Adequate intakes of micronutrients are required for the immune system to function efficiently. Micronutrient deficiency suppresses immunity. This situation increases susceptibility to infections, with increased morbidity and mortality. In turn, infections aggravate micronutrient deficiencies by reducing nutrient intake, increasing losses, and interfering with utilization by altering metabolic pathways. Insufficient intake of micronutrients occurs in people with certain diseases.

The vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E and folic acid and the trace elements iron, zinc, copper and selenium work in synergy to support the protective activities of the immune cells. All these micronutrients, with the exception of vitamin C and iron, are essential for antibody production. Overall, inadequate intake and status of these vitamins and trace elements may lead to suppressed immunity, which predisposes to infections and aggravates malnutrition. Therefore, supplementation with these selected micronutrients can support the body’s natural defense system by enhancing all three levels of immunity. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17922955

Lutein and Lycopene

A scientific research study classified into two classes of proteins/enzymes according to their essentiality for immediate survival/reproduction and their function in long-term health: that is, survival proteins versus longevity proteins. A modest deficiency of one of the nutrients/cofactors triggers a built-in rationing mechanism that favors the proteins needed for immediate survival and reproduction (survival proteins) while sacrificing those needed to protect against future damage (longevity proteins). Impairment of the function of longevity proteins results in an insidious acceleration of the risk of diseases associated with aging. Nutrients required for the function of longevity proteins constitute a class of vitamins that are named “longevity vitamins.” Many such nutrients play a dual role for both survival and longevity. Evidence exists in favor of the plant antioxidant carotenoids lutein and lycopene. Because nutrient deficiencies are highly prevalent in the United States (and elsewhere), appropriate supplementation and/or an improved diet could reduce much of the consequent risk of chronic disease and premature aging. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30322941
