I have bought some supplements: vitamin C and zinc.
I wasn't very clear on the benefits of zinc, so I looked it up. it's seems quite a good booster for the immune system. As we are in autumn, and people will start to cough shortly (!), I wanted to make sure that I don't suffer this autumn and will avoid hospital.
Here's an article about zinc poliquingroup.com/ArticlesM...
this particular bit interests me, because I have a low white blood cells count. If I see my haematologist, I shall ask about it.
"Zinc deficiency profoundly affects the immune system because low zinc produces a direct and rapid decline in T cell function. T cells elevate the body’s immune system when viruses, bacteria, or challenges to health arise. Older people are at greater risk of zinc deficiency, which is not thought to be solely due to poor dietary intake. There’s evidence that a need for more zinc may increase with age to counter inflammation, support the immune system, and ensure healthy cell function."
It looks good!
