The Best Supplements for Immune Support 

Supporting your immune system is just basis common sense.  The time, energy, and effort put into selecting the best supplements for immune support will go a long way toward peace of mind and increased quality of life. Listed here are the best supplements to do just that, in my opinion as a (Naturopathic physician.) 

Ok, so I am going to go through the list of the supplements that I personally have on my shelf for use either on a daily basis for immune support, or occassional use when either myself or a loved one isn't feeling top notch. 

I would like to mention supplements are obviously part of the picture.  To be healthy you need to treat your body like the temple it is. A good rule of thumb is don't do anything to/for yourself you wouldn't do to a baby or small child.  I'll go through the list at the bottom of the page in case you would like to see the supplements first. 

Let's start with daily use.

I usually use Innate Response multivitamin for Women. I do think it is a good idea to switch companies occasionally, simply because variety will help ensure nothing is overlooked.  

Fish Oil 

Omega three essential fatty acids are sooooo important for many factors of health.  This includes:

Healthy cell membranes which are made primarily of fat.  Every Cell in your Body needs good fats to create cell membranes.  This is monumental

Your brain is primarily made of fats as well.  Good, high quality fats in our diets and supplementing with Omega three essential fatty acids, is a must.  

You do want to AVOID seed oils, examples of these are canola,  cottonseed, soybean, corn, sunflower, and grapeseed. These are found in processed foods, which should be limited if not completed eliminated. 

Good fats include animal fats.  Butter is very good for you! Coconut, Ghee, and avocado oil are great choices too. 

I primarily use Nordic Naturals fish oil.  Carlson is also a great company with pure products. 

Medicinal Mushrooms

Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) and Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) and Chaga are wonderful for immune support. 

Host Defense has EXCELLENT products. Their mushroom blends are wonderful.  I try to take the capsules daily.  If I'm getting a scratchy throat, I use their medicinal mushroom spray. 

The Best Vitamin D Supplements

Immune System Support: Vitamin D3 has been associated with increasing the immune system. It may enhance the function of immune cells, helping the body fight off infections and illnesses. It is one of four fat soluble vitamins therefore absorption will be increased if taken with fat containing food. The other three fat soluable vitamins are A, E, and K. 

D3 is the recommended form of vitamin D to take.

Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol):

  • Source: Vitamin D3 is the form of vitamin D that is synthesized naturally in the human body when the skin is exposed to sunlight. It is also found in some animal-based foods.
  • Dietary Sources: Foods like fatty fish (e.g., salmon, mackerel, tuna), egg yolks, and liver are natural dietary sources of vitamin D3.
  • Supplementation: Vitamin D3 supplements are commonly used, as they closely mimic the form of vitamin D produced in the body.

Vitamin C and Zinc are a must when considering the best supplements for immune support. 

The Best Supplements for Immune Support When Feeling Poorly

This List includes Oregano Oil and Colloidal Silver. 

I use these when fighting off illness.

Handle your body with care, just like you would a small child. Important Factors:

Get proper rest.  It is best to sleep when the sun goes down and wake when the sun rises.  8 to 9 hours are ideal, especially if you are sleep deprived.  Additionally, please do not have your phone in the bedroom with you.  Plug it in somewhere else, preferably far away. 

Any lights should be turned off when you sleep.  This includes the TV. Also, it is ideal to have the same sleeping pattern every night.  your body may struggle if one night you go to bed at 2 am and wake at 11 am, then the next you're trying to sleep at 10 pm...I know, I'm a Mom, but seriously, if sleep is something you struggle with, these are good goals. 

And no caffeine after say noon, it can effect your ability to fall asleep. 

If you wake up to go to the restroom, limit beverages for several hours before bed.  If you wake up hungry in the middle of the night, eat protein and fat before sleep. 

Fresh air and Sunshine, every day ideally.

Eat Nourishing Food

Avoid Harmful substances, like sugar and cigarettes.

Avoid stressful situations, ex. the news, alarming programs or shows, negative people, obnoxious music, etc. 


Drink clean, filtered water.  Fluoridated water is terrible for you.  It calcifies your pineal gland, lowers IQ, and pacifies people.... it is so bad.

Please try not to get overwhelmed with all the changes suggested.  Change what you can and feel is most important.  Perhaps have goals to work toward.  Avoiding stress means from this list as well. 

Wishing you the best of health!
