on the immune system is influenced by a variety of substances: vitamins, minerals, amino acids, coenzymes, glycosides, etc. Vitamins and minerals - the most affordable for us..Consider which ones have the most significant effect on the immune system.
Vitamin A (or rather its precursors - carotenoids) found in sea buckthorn, carrot, etc. Vitamin A and retinoids enhance the effects of T-lymphocytes, increases the activity of natural killer cells, stimulate immune response to several antigens, reduced immune tolerance (resistance), increase the content.lymphocytes in the peripheral blood.
Vitamin E found in significant quantities in vegetable oils (sunflower, corn, soy, sea buckthorn, and others.).Increases vitamin E content of T-lymphocytes in the peripheral blood and increases the activity of natural killer cells.
Vitamin C in addition to rose hips in large quantities found in black currants, gooseberries, parsley, nettle, citrus.
Vitamin B5 found in the seeds of many plants, brewer's yeast.There
Folic acid is involved in key metabolic processes, driving the growth and proliferation of immune cells, defining for many immune responses (antigen recognition, blastogenesis, production of lymphokines, the synthesis of nucleic acids, proteins, amino acids, phospholipids exchange).Folic acid is synthesized by intestinal microflora.At its suppression, for example, as a result of massive antibiotic therapy, an additional source of folic acid intake of food can serve as a vegetable and medicinal plants: beans, spinach, asparagus, lettuce, onions.
From microelements especially cobalt can be identified.
Cobalt in large quantities contained in the grapes, legumes (beans, peas), beets, lettuce, parsley, raspberries, black currants, red pepper.Cobalt is part of vitamin B12, which is of great importance for the functioning of the immune system.It was found that the B12-deficiency anemia develops, and lymphocyte subsets imbalance.
