Immune Health: Management
Support Immune Health with Good Diet
Consumers who are interested in supporting their immune system to enhance protection from pathogens should be counseled to get adequate sleep, reduce their stress, stop smoking, participate in regular physical activity, and satisfy most of their nutrients needs with a healthy, balanced diet, but, in reality, this often proves challenging. For example, nobody eats perfectly every day, and even well-designed eating plans are often inadequate in key nutrients, leaving many people at risk for insufficiencies that may negatively impact immunity1.
Dietary Supplements Support Good Immune Health
Micronutrient inadequacies are present at every age and stage of life, and in every country, including developed areas, where consumption of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, and zinc intake may be far lower than suggested intakes. Dietary supplements can help address inadequacies in the nutrients that support immunity2. Studies show that younger adults as well as middle-age and older people who use multivitamins regularly have a significantly higher micronutrient intake for a variety of vitamins and minerals that support immunity3,4.
Multivitamin consumption adds a layer of protection in all adults when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and other lifestyle habits that support immunity. To maximize multivitamin use, it’s important for consumers to consume a supplement that supports their overall micronutrient needs as well as their immune system. Centrum multivitamins provide a spectrum of nutrients and come in a range of age-specific products that empower you to customise recommendations for your consumers.
