A balanced and needs-oriented supply of nutrients keeps our body running. In times of a higher demand of minerals, food supplements are a powerful tool to support the immune system and to protect our health. EFSA has approved Health Claims for zinc, iron, selenium and copper contributing to the normal function of the immune system.
- Zinc deficiency has been associated with an increasing susceptibility to infection, including viral infections. The zinc status of an individual is a critical factor influencing immunity against viral infections.
- The role of iron for immunity is necessary for immune cell proliferation, particularly lymphocytes, associated with the generation of a specific response to infection.
- Copper plays a crucial role in immunity by participating in the development and differentiation of immune cells. In-vitro studies have shown that copper demonstrates antiviral properties.
- Selenium has a wide range of pleiotropic effects, ranging from antioxidant effects to anti-inflammatory properties.
