Vitamin C is the fuel for your immune cells. If you’re Vitamin C deficient then your immune cells are deprived of energy to work efficiently.*
Vitamin C also helps our mucous membranes to function properly. This is important as a first line of defense against all airborne bacteria and viruses to attack them before they enter our respirator system.
Dr. Grgula further advises to limit intake of sugar and carbohydrates which will interfere with our body’s absorption of Vitamin C.
Foods high in Vitamin C include red, green & yellow bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, oranges, kiwi, tomatoes, strawberries, and cantaloupe, according to sources at WebMD.
Similar to how we use vitamin C to kick start our Immune System, CBD acts as a kick starter for our Endocannabinoid System to keep the receptors working at optimal capacity and to help the functions of the body’s central regulatory system, which includes our Immune System.
Our Immune System is one of the most important parts of the body. It’s the main defense against infections, diseases, and health issues.
If you want to ensure your Immune System is functioning optimally, you’ll want to eat right, make sure you’re getting enough vitamins and minerals, sleep deeply, and decrease your stress levels.
In addition to that, since our Immune System and our Endocannabinoid System are intertwined a great deal, it makes sense to use CBD for preventative measures. Further, CBD decreases inflammation, and we all have inflammation in our body. If you can take down that inflammation, it’s going to be better for your health because the common thread of all diseases is chronic inflammation. It’s that low-lying inflammation. According to Dr. Junella Chin,** an osteopathic medical doctor, and founder of her own Integrative Medicine practice in both California and New York, CBD has shown to be antiviral, antibacterial, and having immune modulator properties. I think it can be effective as an enhancement to building a healthy Immune System.
