Did you know that the commonality among those who get the flu and become ill from viruses is that Vitamin D levels are lower than 47ng?
Did you know inflammation is the silent killer and is responsible for driving chronic disease and illness?
7 Vital Nutrients to Naturally Boost Your Immune System Naturally! Including Vitamin D, CBD, and other vital nutrients are critical for staying healthy and keeping inflammation in check. Understanding the power and importance of our God-given immune system has never been more critical than it is right now. Each bodily process and physiological system work symbiotically to protect the human organism from dangerous pathogens like bacteria and viruses.
Over the past two years, significant discoveries by best-practice evidence spotlight specific vitamins and supplements that work in harmony to reduce free radicals, balance inflammation, and provide the immune armor necessary to fight even the most dangerous pathogens.
We are excited to share HMB’s latest creation – Immune Shield Capsules. Buy Here!
1) Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)
A powerful micronutrient, there’s a reason vitamin C is known as an antioxidant. Ascorbic acid fights against free radicals, which damage cells and DNA and cause disease. Vitamin C also regulates and supports several functions of your immune system. Look for it in citrus fruits, tomatoes, bell peppers, broccoli—, and yes, you can take it in supplement form!
“Vitamin C deficiency results in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections. In turn, infections significantly impact vitamin C levels due to enhanced inflammation and metabolic requirements. Furthermore, supplementation with vitamin C appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections.”National Library of Medicine
2) Vitamin D3 (cholecaliferol)
Sometimes known as the sunshine vitamin, D3 is more important than you think. D3 triggers essential peptides (two or more amino acids linked together) in the immune system that help defend against environmental threats. We usually get vitamin D when the body converts vitamin D3 after exposure to UV rays. So, suppose you work inside and don’t get much natural sunlight exposure, you may want to consider taking a supplement. More than half of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D, which may be a fatal mistake in today’s pandemic-driven society.
“Deficiency in vitamin D is associated with increased autoimmunity and increased susceptibility to infection.”National Library of Medicine
3) Zinc (Zinc Sulfate)
Zinc, a nutrient found throughout your body, helps your immune system and metabolism function. This mineral boosts immunity by stimulating white blood cell activity and combats colds and infections as an essential trace element crucial for the growth, development, and maintenance of immune function. Deficiency in Zinc is more common than you think. Affecting up to a quarter of the population in developing countries and affects distinct people in the developed world.
“Zinc is essential to preserve natural tissue barriers such as the respiratory epithelium, preventing pathogen entry, for a balanced function of the immune system and the redox system, zinc deficiency can probably be added to the factors predisposing individuals to infection and detrimental progression of COVID-19.”Frontiers in Immunology
“An abundance of evidence has accumulated over the past 50 y to demonstrate the antiviral activity of zinc against a variety of viruses.”NCBI
Astaxanthin is often referred to as ‘the king of carotenoids’ because of its reputation as one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. This carotenoid molecule has powerful immune-boosting properties. The natural sources of astaxanthin are algae, yeast, salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, and crayfish. This red fat-soluble pigment is similar to beta-carotene from carrots. Astaxanthin as an antioxidant helps reduce oxidation, a natural response for most inflammation cases in our bodies. If not reduced, prolonged inflammation can cause insurmountable damage to our health and well-being.
“Astaxanthin, used as a nutritional supplement, antioxidant and anticancer agent, prevents diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders, and also stimulates immunization.”NCBI
This natural flavonoid may help maintain a healthy immune response. The benefit of quercetin is due to its ability to scavenge free radicals and stop them from destroying healthy cells. In addition, quercetin inhibits histamine release, which reduces inflammation and allergies. Quercetin is within red wine, apples, berries, green tea, onions, and citrus fruits. And in some studies has proven to have a wide range of biological actions, including anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral activities.
“Quercetin, a flavonoid found in fruits and vegetables, has unique biological properties that may improve mental/physical performance and reduce infection risk.”NCBI
6) Immune Booster CBD (Cannabidiol)
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid derived from hemp; this powerful phytocannabinoid (plant-made cannabinoid). It is
CBD is a powerful anti-inflammatory; when ingested it provokes a cascade of inflammation reduction through every gene in the body. CBD is documented to treat more than 50 health conditions and has patented properties for being a neuroprotectant and powerful antioxidant (https://patents.google.com/patent/US6630507B1/en).
CBD’s primary mechanism of action is to drive homeostatic function within the body. When key systems like the body’s immune system are in balance, the disease is simply unable to manifest.

“Considering all the studies conducted on immune responses and inflammation, the data overwhelmingly demonstrate that CBD is immune suppressive and anti-inflammatory.”NCBI
Beta-caryophyllene (BCP), a terpene and cannabinoid found in many plants, can help support a healthy immune response. With its vast health benefits, such as being an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, BCP is a great way to boost your immune system. BCP is a rare compound that modulates the CB2 receptors in the human body, which are found riddled throughout the immune system. A significant health benefit of BCP is it acts medicinally in the body similar to Delta-9 THC but does NOT contain the psychoactive effects Delta-9 THC does.
“Beta (β)-caryophyllene (BCAR) is a major sesquiterpene of various plant essential oils reported for several important pharmacological activities, including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, gastroprotective, nephroprotective, antimicrobial, and immune-modulatory activity.”National Library of Medicine
7 Vital Nutrients and You
The best way to get enough vitamins and minerals is by eating a robust healthy diet. Unfortunately, with 23rd Century farming practices, the majority of the vitamins and minerals found in our foods have been stripped away from greedy growing techniques. Soils are depleted, propagation techniques focus on quantity, not quality, and farmers are increasingly growing GMO, or synthetic foods which have a poor nutrition signature.
Through the power of plants and HMB’s innovative formulas, you can conveniently aid your mind and body naturally. Accompanied with the help of these seven commanding plant-based nutrients, harnessing the power of nature and her infinite healing powers may give your immune system exactly what it needs to keep the bugs away.
HMB understands how important it is to simplify and embrace convenience. HMB’s Fierce Immunity Capsules offer just that. Just two capsules daily give your immune system the fierce protection it needs to thrive in today’s global environment.
