Vitamins and minerals that support immune health

Vitamin B6 is a water-soluble vitamin that is important for supporting biochemical reactions in the immune system. It is linked to benefits including reduced inflammation, supporting eye health, reduced risk of heart disease, enhancing haemoglobin production, and minimising symptoms of depression.
Vitamin B6-rich foods include chicken, salmon, and tuna.
  • Vitamin E 
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that plays an important role in helping your body fight off infections. It can also help lessen free radical damage and slow the aging process.
This fat-soluble vitamin can be found naturally in many foods, such as nuts, seeds, broccoli, and spinach.
  • Zinc
