Our immune system is always under assault from daily modern life. Poor diet, smoking or poor air quality, alcohol, stress, lack of sleep and exercise – all can diminish our immune system’s ability to defend itself against a wide variety of infections, illnesses and diseases.
Yes, getting more sleep, eating better and being active are important to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, but sometimes our busy lives fall short of maintaining a robust immune system. Supplements may help to strengthen our immunity* by adding those essential nutrients that we find ourselves missing in our diet.
At Sovereign Silver®, we believe every person has the right to find natural ways to live a happier, healthier lifestyle. Our Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol™ is a natural, safe* and pure way to get daily immune support*.
BIO-ACTIVE SILVER HYDROSOL
Silver has been used for more than 2,000 years to help protect health and can be found in whole grains, mushrooms, mammalian milk, spring water, sea water and tap water. In fact, silver has been used throughout history to help preserve the purity and safety of drinking water, heal wounds, treat infections and it is gaining recognition as a leader in immune support*.
If you’re looking for additional ways to support your immune system* that compliment your daily dose of silver, here are five more natural supplements to look into:
Often referred to as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, studies have suggested that adequate amounts of vitamin D in the blood can reduce illnesses.*Vitamin D may be responsible for regulating the critical and adaptive immune responses.* Vitamin D also assists with our bones absorbing calcium, making it an essential supplement for those wanting to strengthen their bones. Ideally, vitamin D should be consumed with omega 3 fatty acids (see below).
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Commonly found in fish oil supplements, omega 3 fatty acids are popular with many people because of their health properties. Fatty acids are essential for our body’s cells to function properly and new studies suggest that long-chain omega-3 fatty acids may help to improve our immune system* by enhancing the activity of white blood cells.*
Our gut is often the cause of immune imbalances and probiotics are a beneficial way to help us support our immune function.*According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information nearly 70% of our immune system cells are found in our gut and probiotics may help strengthen these cells* which will help ward off gut flora imbalances which could lead to being more susceptible to infections, illnesses and disease.

This essential mineral works as an antioxidant in our bodies, helping to build up our immune system* and keeping it functioning at its best possible level. According to Dr. Albert Ahn, a clinical instructor of internal medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center, studies have shown that zinc can help decrease the duration of colds and, with regular use, may even help prevent colds from occurring in the first place.
Many people haven’t heard of the immune boosting benefits of elderberry, however new research is starting to show that the berries and flowers from the elder plant can reduce the duration of the flu, as well as fight colds, allergies and inflammation.* According to Pharmacy Times, the elderberry has been used in some societies for thousands of years and now western medicine is taking a hard look at this herbal supplement.
Our on-the-go, fast food lifestyles may be convenient, but it isn’t the best for our health, in fact it’s especially hard on our immune system*. We encourage everyone to do their own research and take their health into their own hands. If you would like to learn more about the power of Sovereign Silver, please visit our Learning Center.
