Strengthening the defenses of children is of vital importance for many mothers who want to give their children the best possible well-being in their day to day. Next, the pharmacist Ignacio Pujol, owner of the Jardinets Pharmacy (Barcelona), tells us how we can strengthen the defenses in children.
How does a child’s immune system develop?
The immune system begins to develop in the mother’s womb and is reinforced during the lactation period. That is why breastfeeding is an important stage in the maturation process, supply of nutrients and Immunoglobulins. But we must not forget that our immune system, once formed, needs constant learning to continue to stay strong.
What are the signs of a weakened immune system in a child?
Our immune system is the one that protects us, fights and fights properly against viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites. If the reaction capacity of our immune system is reduced, it is when we are totally vulnerable to any disease since pathogens easily pass into our body and can cause any infectious disease. One of the main signs of a weakened immune system is the constant relapse of colds or flu. Stress, tiredness and allergies can also be a sign that our defenses are not working.
What recommendations can you give us to strengthen the defenses of children?
The stimuli of the immune system, with external agents that help mature the defenses of the little ones, will give them a more competent and effective immune system. Leading a healthy lifestyle, resting enough, exercising daily, lowering anxiety and stress are basic factors for being healthy. But it is also very important to take supplements to provide all these factors on a daily basis: Vitamins (A, C, D), Minerals (Zn) that the body needs in this maturation process. Studies reinforce that this type of supplementation and other immunogenic components such as Beta-glucans have shown to have a powerful and effective activity on the immune system, regulating and stimulating our defenses, and improving our body’s response at all times to combat any pathogens.
What role do supplements play in strengthening children’s defenses?
Our day to day, like that of our little ones, leads us to sleep little, to be stressed and often even eat poorly and for these reasons our immune system can be weakened. There are many factors that we must carry correctly and many times we do not manage to achieve it. For this reason, taking supplements, especially Beta-glucans, along with Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Zinc to help our defenses is beneficial and effective in preventing illness and helping to protect the skin, respiratory and urinary tracts, among others.
Without a doubt, reinforcing children is important along with healthy daily routines.
