Why we all need a lot more than just one vitamin/mineral to strengthen our immune system?

Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin D & Vitamin C to strengthen our immune system? 


We NEED Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin D & Vitamin C for Our Immune System (ASAP) - Thomas DeLauer Immune cells need vitamin C, but without vitamin D T cells remain dormant. However, taking vitamin D will deplete magnesium stores. Zinc also has a positive influence on the immune system, as does copper. Iron does have a role in immune system function, but you cannot excrete excess, which can cause damage to organs, and it competes with magnesium for oxygen. So, in theory, taking too much iron could reduce magnesium, which could then render vitamin D useless, which would ultimately mean taking vitamin C would be pointless in regards to T cells as they wouldn't be able to activate and utilize vitamin C.



Vitamin C Immune cells have active vitamin C transporter molecules embedded in their membranes that actively pump the vitamin into the cells when more vitamin C is required Vitamin C produces beneficial effects on virtually all of the immune system’s cells Study - Nutrients In 2014, a study of vitamin C published in the journal Nutrients found that vitamin C supplementation can reduce the incidence of the common cold in otherwise healthy people with chronic stress or obesity During the study, 85% of placebo recipients experienced a cold compared with just 47% of supplemented subjects https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2... Vitamin D When a T cell is exposed to a foreign pathogen, it extends a signaling device (vitamin D receptor) with which it searches for vitamin D This means that the T cell must have vitamin D or activation of the cell will cease - if the T cells cannot find enough vitamin D in the blood, they won't activate Vitamin C Needed to Convert Vitamin D into its Active Form A study published in the Journal of Nutrition revealed that Vitamin C plays a critical role in Vitamin D metabolism It was found that while Vitamin C deficiency “potentiated effects of Vitamin D deprivation and impaired a restorative action of Vitamin D” Vitamin C has been shown to specifically to influence the activity of 25(OH)D3-1-hydroxylase, the enzyme responsible for the transformation of 25(OH)D3 to 1,25(OH)2D3 (an active form of D3)
