Good nutrition and good immune system connection

The shift of the saying, “Live a long life” to “Live a healthy and fruitful life” signifies a strong immune system is ever more valued. A good immune system protects the body from infections.  The best way to support it is with good nutrition. We will talk about the effects of poor nutrition and tips on improving immunity for adults through vitamins, minerals, and high-quality proteins such as Ensure Gold with HMB for Muscles. As an alternative, Ensure Gold Plant Base is available for vegetarian or people who don’t drink milk.1, 6

The Effects of Poor Nutrition

The malabsorption of proteins, omega 3 fatty acids, and vitamin E can prevent immune cells from responding efficiently to infections. Infections flare up and chain reaction of negative health effects results.1 When the body draws nutrients from muscles and other reserves, it puts seniors more at risk of having fragile bones, muscle weakness, vision loss, and cognitive decline. Extreme dieting, changes in medication, depression, dental problems, gastrointestinal issues, or even substance abuse are some of the things that contribute to malnutrition.1, 2, 5

Tips on Improving Immunity for Adults

Eating clean, fresh food, doing some exercise, and getting a good night’s sleep are the top three recommendations for boosting immunity for adults and children alike.

Why concentrate on muscles? – This is because stronger muscles have greater reserves of amino acids that support the immune system function. An improved blood flow helps the transportation of nutrients and mobilizes molecules that reduce inflammation.1, 2, 3

Herbs and Spices – Adds important vitamins and minerals that improve immunity.

Turmeric – is anti-inflammatory and has prebiotic properties that feed the good gut bacteria. Stronger gut bacteria mean it is more effective in fighting off the bad ones and aids in digestion. This herb spice is also packed with vitamin C and vitamin A, two known vitamins that support the immune system.1, 4

Ginger – packed with vitamin B6, magnesium, and manganese, fresh ginger is a natural antibiotic. It helps in protein synthesis and effective production of immune bodies.1, 4

Garlic – The most used bulbus spice, its properties enhance the efficiency of white blood cells. Garlic also has amino acids, selenium, and oligosaccharides, nutrients that support muscle health as well.1, 4


Nutritional Supplements –

Nutritional supplements are actually a great way for seniors to fill in gaps from food and enhance the quality of life. For example, Ensure Gold with HMB for muscles is a scientifically designed nutritional supplement supported with HMB (Hydroxymethylbutyrate), a key nutrient in preventing muscle degradation. Also enhanced with Vitamin C, A, B6, and amino acids among the 28 to support immunity for adults. As a gluten-free product, Ensure Gold with HMB solves common GI issues. It is also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids that enhance the function of immune cells. Through many years of scientific formulation, just two servings of Ensure Gold with HMB for muscles a day with food, can help seniors improve muscle quality and immunity within 8 weeks*. Vegetarian or people who don’t drink milk may option for Ensure Gold Plant Base as an alternative.
