It’s getting more and more obvious: a lot people do not have a well-functioning immune system.

If you want to eat healthier foods and allow your body to function normally, you do not always need to make dramatic changes. That is why we would like to give you some information about dietary supplements, which cost a bit of money, but can be easily integrated into everyday life and can make a huge difference to your health.
Everything in nature is made up of complex systems which have many different influencing factors and all which influence each other. For some metabolic pathways in the body, it is important to have both sufficient vitamin D and vitamin C levels. To be able to absorb them well, nutrients such as magnesium, potassium and zinc are particularly important. With a healthy diet you can already build a very good foundation here and only supplement in areas where your blood test says you’re deficient.
In Austria, a blood test every year, as part of the preventive medical check-up, is free and is a good opportunity to take a close look at the most important values for yourself!
So next time just tell the doctors to test for vitamin D, zinc, selenium, magnesium, iron and other micronutrients too!
If you are not from Austria, you can check whether there is a comparable offer in other countries or pay for a blood test. Usually, the cost of this is kept within acceptable limits.
If you have never heard of vitamin D / vitamin D3, Dr. Jörg Spitz really an optimal introduction to this topic. Vitamin D3 is the basis for an incredible number of bodily functions and is produced in the largest human organ: the skin. Through various factors such as air pollution, body covering and sunscreen, it is almost impossible to maintain a healthy vitamin D level naturally.
Fortunately, there is a very simple and good solution for it: Take vitamin D capsules or drops with a recommended dose of 40-60 IU (units) per kg of body weight. With a weight of e.g. 75kg would be a daily dose of 60 * 75 = 4500IE.
If your vitamin D level is very low at the moment (as with most), high-dose therapy may be useful – but first, ALWAYS consult with a doctor! High-dose vitamin D preparations are e.g. freely available in the pharmacy via a prescription or in lower doses.
Once the vitamin D level has been corrected, you have already achieved a lot and made a big step towards “preventing nerve diseases”.
Fats are the good guys! For far too long we have been persuaded to believe something else.
And of course … only “the good” fats are really good for our body. Unfortunately, industrially manufactured products do not include healthy fats. Specifically, it is always about the ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which should be well balanced.
This is becoming increasingly difficult nowadays, because industrial products mainly process omega 6 fatty acids – e.g. for cost reasons. Refraining from such products already brings a great deal.
In everyday life, it is advisable to buy high-quality oils or fish or algae oil supplements. In the long term, a healthy fatty acid ratio also helps prevent common diseases.
In general, but especially for healthy oils, it is important to pay attention to the quality of a product. That is why we are particularly pleased that Team-Fresh.eu readers receive a special offer from NORSAN! NORSAN offers high quality and pure fish but also algae oil, as well as oils for children and in capsule form.
As a Team Fresh reader, you will receive a 15% discount on your first order with the code “teamfresh15”.
In everyday life, but also especially to prevent infections, vitamin C is used again and again and is also tested in high doses. A few years ago, millions of people were still able to produce vitamin C by themselves, but today it is difficult to get enough through a healthy diet. A daily dose for adults of 100-200mg is recommended, which can be optimally absorbed by the body. In every pharmacy there is vitamin C in powder or capsule form. We also recommend paying attention to the quality of the product here.
One hears very little about vitamin A compared to other vitamins, although a lot research has been done about its importance and effects. Unfortunately, it is not easy to measure in the blood test, because the majority of vitamin A does not “float” in the blood, but “settles” into the tissue. Nevertheless, it is important to mention this vitamin in connection with a healthy immune system because it is a key player, especially for the immune defence in mucous membranes (mouth, nose, genitals).
If you want to prevent infections, you can supplement as with vitamin D 40-60IE (units) per kg body weight with one meal a day. Of course, vitamin A is also very bioavailable via organic fruits and vegetables such as carrots, apricots, pumpkin, kale, and spinach.
