6 food Nutrients to Supercharge your Immune System

A body system that protects the body from viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other harmful creatures, known as Immune System. But in that time people are not as much aware of their immunity strength as they have to be. Even people don’t know which nutrients and ingredients he uses for the betterment of their immune system. In this article, we discuss the six topmost Nutrients which help you to improve your immunity and strengthen your Immune system.

Nutrients help our immune system to generate more and more immune cells and they work as antioxidants and protect healthy cells, produce antibodies in our body, transfer signals from one nervous system to another. Epidemiology established that such person who is not well nourished, those people get affected by bacteria, viral and other infection rapidly than to the well-nourished person. So, It is essential to all to nourish our body to be fit and fine, below you find some essential nutrient to Supercharge our Immune system.

VITAMIN C:

It is the topmost nutrient that helps us to Supercharge our Immune system. In another case, if you have lack Vitamin C you feel more prone to getting sick. Vitamin C works as a potent antioxidant and also a cofactor for a family of biosynthetic, gene regulatory enzymes. Vitamin C supports the immune defense system by support in many cellular functions in both types of immune systems.

Here are some of the fruits which are rich in Vitamin C orange, lemon, grapefruit, kale, spinach, strawberry, bell peppers, and broccoli. 

The studies and observations show that lack of Vitamin C shows poor immunity. And its deficiency causes a high risk of virals and infection ( pneumonia ).

Because of our can’t store or create vitamin c so, everyone needed to take it. One of the interesting thing about the Vitamin C is that it is present in most things what we daily take so, need to take supplements for Vitamin C but need to check to take insufficient amount.

Vitamin B6 :

Our body needs Vitamin B6 to absorb vitamin B12 and also to make red blood cells (RBC) of the immune system. Vitamin B 6 helps to make neurotransmitters like serotonin chemical which carry the signal in our nervous system from one to another. 

The deficiency of Vitamin B6 causes disturbance in our Immune system, it can easily understand this, deficiency inhibits the production rate of antibodies in our body and also reduces the production of WBC ( white blood cells ).

As we know the biochemical reactions must perform in our Immune system. Vitamin B6 – rich in food cold-water fish, chicken, and also green vegetables, it is the main ingredient of hummus

VITAMIN E :

 As we know vitamin E is also a good antioxidant that helps the body to fight against viruses, virals, and infectious diseases. It prevents lipid peroxidation and associates cell membrane damage. Vitamin E helps in the maintenance of integrity part of the cell membrane, maintain signal transduction and also produce many of the protein.

Lack of Vitamin E may pause or slow the manufacturing process of immune cells.

Vitamin E directly Supercharge our Immune system we can take it by regular use of such ingredients as nuts, seeds, and spinach, etc.

ZINC :

Zinc is an essential nutrient for us in growth as well as in the immune system. Zinc plays a vital role in our Immune system such as a signal transporter in our CNS(center nervous system), Zn is also essential for monocytes/macrophages and anti-bacterial cells. Zn also shows the antioxidant properties.

Lack of Zn cause many problems related to the immune system such as cell-mediated immune dysfunctions, and abnormal neurosensory changes

Zn produces naturally and found in beans, fishes, meat, dark chocolate, legumes, etc.

CAROTENOIDS :

Carotenoids are the pigment found in plants, algae, and bacteria. Carotenoids are the reason that’s why plants show different colors. There 600 different types of carotenoids founded yet. They also act as an antioxidant for the human body, so, they also boost our Immune system

Some carotenoids are known to exert multiple protective effects in the function of the cellular immune system. It also minimizes the UV rays effect by sunlight.

Food that is rich in carotenoids is apricot, broccoli, squash, sweet potato, peaches, etc.

FATTY ACIDS :

In the Immune system, fatty acids have their vital role, and they also boost up our Immune system. Fatty acids work as a source of energy, signal transduction, as a structural component of cell membranes. Omega-3 fatty acids can also boost your memory.The cause of fatty acid shows the property of anti-inflammation so, it directly helps to boost our Immune system.

Lack of fatty acids causes the inhibition of mediator immune cells. Food rich in fatty acids is fish, seafood ( tuna, salmon, herring), nuts, seed( flaxseed, chia seed, walnut), and plant oil.

4 months ago Jaundice , Symptoms , treatment

What are the Symptoms and Treatment of Jaundice?

In this article, we examine the symptoms and treatment of jaundice. But first, we need to discuss what jaundice is. The term jaundice stands for the change that occurs in the sclera (white membrane in our eye) turning yellow. It is caused due to the rapid increase in bilirubin, which is yellow-orange bile pigment. Bile is the fluid production in our liver. Bilirubin is also a waste material in our blood. In a report, it is confirmed that about 60 percent of newborn babies in the United States have jaundice. So, it is the major problem in the U.S.(United States). 

As we know jaundice is related to the functioning process of the liver. So, we need to maintain our liver in some ways like eating a healthy diet, not drinking too much (or more than the recommendation), exercise regularly, and yoga (which helps our digestion and immune system in making better).

There are three types of jaundice based on their occurrence.

Hepatocellular jaundice occurs due to injury or disease in the liver.

Hemolytic jaundice occurs due to sudden breakdown of RBCs or rise in bilirubin.

Any kind of obstruction in the bile duct causes this condition called jaundice.

There are two types of jaundice Based on patient age.

  • Adult jaundice, in which the patient is an adult.
  • Newborn jaundice, in which patient is newborn

Symptoms 

Many studies show that people have jaundice but don’t show any of the symptoms related to jaundice. In this part of the article, we discuss all such cases regarding jaundice symptoms.

It is an accidental case when the person has jaundice but doesn’t show any of the symptoms of jaundice.

 The Following are the symptoms related to jaundice in the human body.

The most common symptoms of jaundice include.

  • Sudden change in our skin and eye’s white membrane (sclera) color to yellow, Pale stools, Urine goes dark, Itchiness produces in our skin
  •  Accompanying symptom of jaundice which is due to low bilirubin levels include
  • Fatigue, pale stool, darkness in urine, fever, vomiting, unfortunately, weight loss, pain production our abdominal 

Now, we describe the symptoms as per the basis of infection, if a person is infected then the person shows symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain, itchiness, and flu-like symptoms. If the person isn’t infected then such symptoms occur like weight loss, itchy skin.

If the jaundice is caused by liver-related disease, inflammation occurs.

Here you study the symptoms from many factors after that we study how to treat jaundice? and how to diagnose jaundice?

Treatment

After we discuss, how jaundice is treated? We need to know, how is it diagnosed? 

The doctor used to check liver disease signs like spider angiomas (collection of a blood vessel near the skin, Palmar erythema (palm and fingertip get on reddish), skin’s brushing.

Thereafter, doctors use urine test, CT scan, and ultrasonography to diagnose the jaundice 

In adult persons, jaundice can be cured, by our immune system. If your body has acute viral hepatitis and jaundice cured itself, and your liver heals itself. But if you have an extremely high bilirubin level then it may be a problematic situation for you, because now it uses the treatment.

In a new one, it cannot be cured itself; they need good treatment for curing jaundice. Generally, jaundice takes one or two weeks to cure, but in newborns, this may take more time. If your baby is prematurely (born) then it cures itself, but other tests are needed. 

Here we provide you information to get rid of jaundice in newborns.

Provide nutrition (cause of weight loss newborn need some supplement nutrition for growth and immune system), light therapy(in this process newborn is preserved under the light, a special kind of light not sunlight, by which photo-oxidation adds oxygen to bilirubin so, it easily dissolve in the water), Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg)(used for a variety of indications in the newborn period, such as alloimmune neonatal thrombocytopenia and adjunctive treatment of neonatal infections), Exchange transfusion(this is the vital process of heredity, and it does by exchanging the blood antibodies from his parents). With these steps, you can get rid of the jaundice problem.

If your liver got a severe problem, jaundice may be accomplished by a serious problem, such as failure of brain function and a tendency to bleed or bruise. Acute viral hepatitis is also a cause of jaundice, generally in young, and otherwise healthy people.

Additional information

I think the above-mentioned help you to understand the jaundice symptoms and treatments. But last one thing, I want to substitute, adult jaundice can cure itself, but sometimes when your bile duct gets blocked this is a serious problem, you need to take advice from doctors. One more thing, want to add for newborn jaundice is a serious problem, but it also a reason for rare brain disease
