Vision Egypt News: - Zinc is essential for multiple cellular functions including immunity, and it helps people suffering from pneumonia, acute respiratory infections, and the common cold.

Scientists from the Department of Internal Medicine in Michigan, USA, said zinc supplementation is effective in reducing infections in the elderly, in reducing oxidative stress and generating inflammatory cytokines.

The Institute of Immunology in Germany notes that up to 30 percent of adults have a zinc deficiency, and this may put anyone at greater risk of catching a cold.

Elderberry is well known as a support agent against colds and flu, and elderberry extract has antimicrobial activity that enables it to fight viruses, and significantly reduces upper respiratory symptoms.

Vitamin D, this fat-soluble nutrient is essential for the healthy functioning of the immune system, and enhances the effects of white blood cells in fighting pathogens, as white blood cells are a mandatory component of a person's immune system.

Vitamin D reduces a person's risk of developing respiratory infections, as it is recommended to take a vitamin D supplement during the fall and winter, because the sun is not strong enough for the body to produce this vitamin naturally at this time of the year.
