Magnesium and zinc – everything we need to improve our immune system!
We are all witnesses of a new global epidemiological situation, and we can say there are many important and responsible tasks ahead of us in days to come. We must preserve our health, as well as the health of the people around us. First of all, you need to follow the instructions of doctors and experts. They relate primarily to hand washing and maintaining general hygiene. Then, you are advised to stay home and have proper and adequate nutrition. The emphasis is on providing the necessary vitamins and minerals daily as well.
Still, the most important item is our immune system. How to preserve and strengthen it? Most of you are probably familiar with the basic foods and procedures that can strengthen our immunity. And did you know that magnesium and zinc are crucial for the proper and good functioning of your immunity? The explanation is as follows.
Namely, magnesium and zink are minerals responsible for supporting over 300 important biochemical functions in the body necessary for our good health. These include : protein synthesis, DNA production, energy production, then the normal functioning of all systems in the body, especially the cardiovascular, nervous and skeletal systems. There is also the prevention of inflammation, defence against foreign bodies, and our immunity creation and preservation .
Why do we need magnesium?
Magnesium is a mineral responsible for many functions in our body. Some of them are protein synthesis regulation and normal functioning of body enzymes, energy creation, ensuring normal sleep, improvement of the brain and nervous system working, and prevention of inflammation and key hotspots in the body.
A study  from George Washington University showed that magnesium deficiency leads to increased levels of inflammation in the body, which negatively affects blood vessels, cardiovascular and digestive systems, since it increases oxidative stress.
Magnesium deficiency is associated with a weakened function of the immune system. Magnesium plays a very important role in the lymphocite proliferation and function, the body’s defense cells. In particular, magnesium is required for the adhesion recognition phase in the cytolytic T-lymphocyte reaction. Here, magnesium is needed as a fuel for the production of these body’s defence cells, which fight against the influence of viruses and bacteria, and strengthen the immune response to attacks by healthy cells.
The recommended daily amount of magnesium is 375 mg per day.
Why do we need zinc?
Zinc is a mineral that occurs in our body in traces, but which our body needs every day to preserve its health. Zinc plays a vital role in a number of functions, including immune function, growth and development, brain health, mood and sleep, eye and skin health, and testosterone production.
Zinc deficiency in the body can lead to serious side effects, seriously impair the immune system function, and cause many other health problems.
How does zinc act as an immune system booster?
There are several ways in which zinc strengthens the immune system, but above all, it activates enzymes that break down proteins in viruses and bacteria, so that they can spread less through the body. Also, zinc increases the activation of cells responsible for fighting infection.
Zinc also reduces various inflammation types in the body, destroys foreign bodies, and strengthens the immune response to our body’s attacks.
A 2013 study from Ohio State University  found that zinc “lured” into cells fighting infection stopped the damage to the immune system. Scientists have concluded that if there is not enough zinc to support the immune response, an excess of enemy cells triggers inflammation – potentially damaging healthy cells and our body.
The recommended daily dose of zinc is about 10mg.
