1) Probiotics are friendly bacteria that usually inhabit the gut and are a very well documented optimizer of the immune system. These bacteria modulate the immune system by increasing the numbers of certain white blood cells (T lymphocytes). Probiotics also help improve digestion and protect the body from harmful pathogens such as candida albicans.
2) Astragalus ( 1000 mg daily )
This well-known Chinese herb stimulates white blood cells to both prevent and fight infections.
3) Zinc (50 mg daily)
Zinc is an effective preventive for all kinds of infections.
4) Selenium (200 mcg daily)
Regular supplementation of Selenium reduces the risk of cancers of the bladder, breast, bowel, lung and prostate. I usually recommend that people take a vitamin E 400 IU with selenium because the two nutrients work synergistically.
5) Oregano Oil (1-5 drops/day)
Oregano oil is one of the best natural supplements you can get. There’s a lot of evidence to show that oregano oil is a powerful tool against the harmful organisms that lead to infections. One study straight from the United States Department of Agriculture reported that oregano oil has such a strong action against germs that it could easily fight Salmonella and E. coli.
