A panel of Swiss Doctors and Professors in co-operation with the Swiss Society of Nutrition have reviewed the scientific evidence and the role of micronutrients in supporting a well-functioning immune system for optimal health.
The recently published paper highlights that the global pandemic has made nutrition and immune support of particular relevance. The researchers point out that the Swiss population are at risk because of inadequate nutritional status particularly Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, Omega-3 and Selenium. No doubt the same will apply to many or all European countries.
There is a strong correlation between nutritional status and a well functioning immune system. The study addresses the urgent need to secure adequate nutrient status by supplementation as well as a balanced diet.
