Fighting viral infections means a strong Immune System – AMC can help that fight!

The current state of infection in our world can feel scary and overwhelming, especially without a definitive treatment. The ability of our body’s immune system to fight this battle becomes more important daily. The healthier and stronger our immune system is, the stronger our response will be to any infection.

At Age Management Center of New England, we use the highest quality, pharmacy grade nutraceuticals. Our team has created an immunity support package that we’re not only personally using, but recommending to our patients. The below products are all available through our office and can be shipped directly to you.

We recommend the following products, which have immune boosting capabilities:

  • Zinc – Zinc is a known powerhouse for immune function and support. Think of it as the “gasoline for the immune response”. One of the mechanisms of action of a front-line drug that is being tested for treating the current viral epidemic is that the drug itself opens channels in the cells to let Zinc in.
  • Vitamin D – Vitamin D is touted for many different health benefits and when it comes to immune response, its importance is vital! Most people living in the Northeast are chronically deficient in Vitamin D without supplementation. We are just emerging from the darkest season of the year and right now, our Vitamin D levels are likely the lowest. The “normal range” on Vitamin D is 30-100, but we consider the optimal range to be between 60-80. Most people require at least 5000IU daily to get close to that range but if you’re deficient, you likely require even more. Most multivitamins and generic supplements only contain anywhere from 100-2000IU. The prescription Vitamin D is D2, but D3 is what is needed for the typical immune function in the body.
  • Vitamin C – Vitamin C helps decrease inflammation in the body. When an infection occurs, many of the symptoms are due to the inflammation that occurs after an immune response as well as form the actual activity of fighting the virus off in the system. Vitamin C can help minimize the impact of inflammation on the body, which is important in order to stay healthy!
  • Liposomal Glutathione – Glutathione is made in the body and is a vital player in immune response, especially in lung function. Glutathione levels are deficient in many different conditions and is decreased with chronic inflammatory conditions and common genetic conditions. Eating a typical Western Diet and being exposed to chemicals and toxins can also affect our Glutathione levels in the body. Glutathione is also a powerful detoxification agent and at the time of an infection, it targets lung function and optimizes lung health which is vital for a properly functioning immune system!
