Bariatric Surgery Success Episode #54 covering must-have vitamins and minerals including vitamin D

Your immune system is a fascinating, intricate and very capable system made up of different organs, cells, and proteins that work together. It goes into action when some type of foreign invader such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites tries to hack into your body, take over and make you sick. 

Does an Immune-Boosting Diet Really Exist?

Some of the nutrients which are critical for the healthy functioning of immune cells include vitamins C, D and E, folate, zinc, selenium, iron, and copper. 

Foods discussed where you find these particular vitamins and minerals:

Probiotic and prebiotic foods

Citrus foods like oranges, tangerines and grapefruit

Salmon, tuna and sardines, egg yolks

Oysters, crab, shrimp and mussels

Beef, ham, veal, sardines, mussels, oysters, chicken or turkey

Nuts, seeds, avocado and spinach
