Why vitamin C is so important for immunity?
Human immune system protects the body against disease or other potentially damaging foreign bodies. The immune system is not limited in one single part of the body. It is rather made up of a network of cells, molecules, tissues, and organs working together to protect body with the series of actions.
Vitamin C benefits the immune system in various ways.
First, Vitamin C support skin’s barrier against invaders by helping skin cells function and promotes the oxidant scavenging activity of the skin. vitamin C may also bolster the fatty membranes in skin and connective tissue, thus protecting organs like the lungs from pathogens.
Second, Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system.
It has been found that vitamin C supplements taken during a cold can reduce the duration of the illness by 8% in adults and 14% in children. Practically, that means that supplementing vitamin C can shorten the duration of a cold by about one day.
Several of the reviewed studies included people under intense physical stress, including marathon runners and soldier straining in the Arctic. Among these individuals, those who took vitamin C were about half as likely to catch a cold as those who did not take such supplements.
How zinc works for immunity?
Same as with vitamin C, zinc also protects skin by helping skin cells function. It is an essential mineral for the connective tissue generations and repairs.
It also has anti-inflammatory benefits. Often found in many cold remedies, the duration and symptoms of common cold may be significantly reduced with the zinc lozenges (medicinal tablets). In clinical trials, the incidence of infections was decreased by nearly 66% in the elderly who had zinc supplementation compared with the group who did not receive supplement.
