Everybody knows that while your wedding day is the most momentous day in your life for all the right reasons it can also be very stressful. Preparation for your special day can prove to be draining both physically and mentally and with all that to say it is very important to keep your energy up and not let the stress get your immune system down.
Maintaining a healthy immune system in the run up to your big day is quintessential and at the same time incredibly facile. Here are some of the most effective vitamins that you can take to maintain a healthy immune system.
Vitamin A is the defensive line of the immune system and it keeps viruses, infections and other germs from getting into our bodies.
Vitamin C, unlike Vitamin A, is not a part of the defensive line for the immune system instead it takes the offensive line against germs and helps to boost your immune system overall.
Vitamin E has also been known to boost the immune system. Vitamin E boosts the immune system by producing interleukin-2, an immune protein that kills bacteria.
B-vitamins are energy-boosting vitamins that also boost the immune system. Vitamin B6 especially, has been shown in studies to boost the immune system by increasing white blood cell count in the body.
Zinc is the most important mineral to add to your diet when you want to boost the immune system. Zinc reduces the symptoms of colds and flu when given within 24 hours of the first signs of these illnesses.
So to ensure energy levels are at an all-time high on your big day it may be worthwhile to restock your vitamin supplies to ensure a healthy immune system and to bypass any stress related illnesses which as you can see are easily avoidable. One less thing to worry about!
