Three Ways Biote Boosts Immune System
3 Ways Biote Boosts Immune System
1. Hormone Optimization: Optimizing testosterone levels can help improve sleep, which studies show can help improve the immune system. Hormone optimization using the Biote Method may help reduce anxiousness which can also improve immune function.
2. Thyroid Optimization: The immune system includes cells that protect our bodies from foreign antigens and microbes (bacteria and viruses). Innate immunity offers immediate protection against these microbes through our white blood cells.
3. Nutraceuticals: Biote’s wide range of nutritional supplements (nutraceuticals) help support many of the systems of the body as well as enhancing the immune system.
a. Zinc for respiratory illness (found in Iodine+) – Specifically, zinc has been shown to reduce the severity of respiratory illness. Zinc improves the integrity of respiratory cells, protecting them from inflammation and infection. One capsule of Biote’s Iodine+ contains 10mg of zinc.
b. Vitamin D for an improved immune response (found in ADK 5 & 10) – Vitamin D is also important in maintaining the innate and adaptive immune responses. A deficiency in vitamin D may increase susceptibility to infection.
c. Probiotics for overall immune system health. Our gastrointestinal tract (GI) is important to our overall immune system health. Probiotics can improve GI health by up-regulating immune function. The combination of Biote’s Multi-Strain Probiotics 20B + and Bacillus Coagulans is an excellent choice for boosting the immune system, especially during this stressful time.
