Boost Immunity to Protect Yourself from Disease
The coronavirus pandemic continues to extend its influence. According to data as of 17 July 2020, 213 countries and territories around the world have reported a total of 139,816,23 confirmed cases of the coronavirus COVID-19, and a death toll of 593,352 deaths. As the coronavirus pandemic continues to extend shutdowns, quarantines and social distancing measures -- many people are wondering how to keep themselves well. You know that social distancing, working from home and staying inside in general is one way to protect yourself -- but are there other measures you can take? Boosting your immune system is one of the best things you can do because it is your body's key defense when it comes to fighting a virus. Even if you are exposed to a virus, the coronavirus or others, if your immune system is strong, you have a better chance of not getting sick. We’ve talked about the role of vitamin C and vitamin D in immunity enhancement. Another vitamin also plays a crucial role in immunity enhancement. This vitamin is vitamin E.
Vitamin E, a potent fat-soluble antioxidant with anti-inflammatory propertities, found in higher concentration in immune cells compared to other cells in blood, is one of the most effective nutrients known to helps support the immune system. Vitamin E deficiency has been demonstrated to impair normal functions of the immune system in animals and humans, which can be corrected by vitamin E repletion. Although deficiency is rare, vitamin E supplementation above current dietary recommendations has been shown to enhance the function of the immune system and reduce risk of infection, particularly in older individuals.
How Does Vitamin E Regulate Immune Response?
Free radicals can cause unwanted damage to cells in your body if their levels are too high. This can negatively affect your immune system, leaving you prone to illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer, all of which can increase your risk of contracting COVID-19. One way to reduce free radical presence in your body is by taking various antioxidants. Antioxidants help prevent or slow down cell damage caused by free radicals while indirectly aiding in immune function.
One of these antioxidants is vitamin E, a vitamin that dissolves in fat. This means that it can be stored in your body and used when needed. The mechanisms responsible for the effect of vitamin E on the immune system and inflammation have been explored in cell-based, pre-clinical and clinical intervention studies. Vitamin E modulates T cell function through directly impacting T cell membrane integrity, signal transduction, and cell division, and also indirectly by affecting inflammatory mediators generated from other immune cells. Modulation of immune function by vitamin E has clinical relevance as it affects host susceptibility to infectious diseases such as respiratory infections, in addition to allergic diseases such as asthma. Studies examining the role of vitamin E in the immune system have typically focused on α-tocopherol; however, emerging evidence suggests that other forms of vitamin E, including other tocopherols as well as tocotrienols, may also have potent immunomodulatory functions.
