The body’s capacity to fight disease and infection lies within the immune system. This complex system is made of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to recognize, identify, and respond to infection or injury in the body. Due to the complexity of the immune system, there are multiple factors involved in maintaining optimal immune balance. In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including the proper supplements into your child’s routine can provide support for the numerous biochemical reactions that their body uses to fight infection.

The Pediatric Immune Support Supplement Kit includes 4 core supplements that support healthy immune system function. 

These 4 supplements are manufactured by LiveWise Naturals, Endurance Products, DaVinci Laboratories, and Carlson Labs and can be purchased at the Functional Medicine of Idaho Meridian Wellness Center and Boise Clinic supplement counters.

Vitamin D3 with K2

Vitamin D supports proper immune function and has anti-inflammatory properties that help soften the body’s inflammatory response. It can help protect against respiratory infections and is necessary for blood clotting. It promotes cardiovascular health and immune function and has been shown to enhance the absorption and retention of calcium. This supplement comes in liquid form for easy consumption and contains bioavailable forms of vitamin K1 and K2 to ensure that calcium is properly utilized and deposited. 

Zinc Carnosine

Zinc is a micromineral that boosts immune defenses and has anti-inflammatory properties. It helps stabilize the cell membrane and enhances the absorption of vitamins A and D. Carnosine is an amino acid that is a powerful antioxidant that protects the body from oxidative stress. Zinc Carnosine is a chewable tablet that offers a potent 1-to-1 combination of zinc and carnosine to deliver targeted benefits. 

Liposomal C

Vitamin C plays an essential role in immune function by increasing the number of white blood cells and decreasing the production of inflammatory molecules. It supports liver detoxification, maintains healthy levels of glutathione in the body, and contains antioxidant properties that help protect the body from heavy metals. Vitamin C also supports the energy producing capacity of the mitochondria. Liposomal C comes in a liquid form that provides a high dose of both fat and water soluble vitamin C, which allows the vitamin C to be better absorbed by the cells and stay in the body longer. 

Cod Liver Oil

Cod liver oil contains omega-3 fatty acids that help boost immune function and have anti-inflammatory effects. It also helps convert nutrients in the blood into usable forms of energy and is involved in cell-to-cell communications. This supplement also contains fat-soluble vitamin A, which is essential for immune function, bone growth, eye health, cellular growth, and sexual organ function.
