T-helper type 1 cytokine release is enhanced by in vitro zinc supplementation due to increased natural killer cells
Researchers concluded that zinc may have the ability to help our immune system fight off cancer and viral infections. While I don’t often recommend individual zinc supplementation, this research strongly supports the concept of using a good quality multivitamin. If we pieced out all the vitamins and minerals that we should be taking and took them all separately, most patients would find themselves non-compliant and not reaping the benefits. However, a good quality multi fills in so many gaps and helps in so many individual ways that there really is no reason why everyone should not be taking a good quality multi.
