Let’s bust some immunity myths
Myth 1️⃣: If I sanitize everything, I won’t get sick.
Aside from the fact that it’s impossible to completely avoid germs, the truth is we need a healthy microbiome for a healthy immune system—to keep everything from infections to allergies to inflammation in check.
Myth 2️⃣: I need to “boost” my immune system.
Boosting immunity is overly simplified because an overactive immune system can be just as damaging as an underactive immune system—contributing to allergies and autoimmunity.
Myth 3️⃣: Vitamin C will keep me healthy.
Sure, vitamin C supports immune function, but it’s not the only nutrient we need. Other key immune nutrients include vitamins A, D, E,, selenium, zinc, and protein.
