With cold and flu season being right around the corner, that means it is time for acute bronchitis season to flare up as well. Today I want to talk about what acute bronchitis is and what you can be doing to support your respiratory system.† 

What is acute bronchitis?

Every single year, roughly 5% of the population deals with acute bronchitis. This can lead to over 10 million office visits at doctor’s appointments every single year. Like many viral diseases of the respiratory tract, acute bronchitis is commonly seen in the fall and winter months.†

GETTING YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM READY FOR WINTER, PART 1 – INVITE HEALTH PODCAST, EPISODE 427. Listen Now>> 

Acute bronchitis is an acute inflammation that occurs in the respiratory bronchi. This triggers the secondary inflammatory response in the body. The inflammation in the bronchial walls leads to a mucosal thickening, which is incredibly problematic. If someone has acute bronchitis, they will present with this very productive cough and will often have a difficult time breathing. They may also experience wheezing. The predominant complaint is this thick mucus that you continue to cough up.†  

Nutrients to support your respiratory tract and immune system

When you’re dealing with bronchitis, you just want it to go away. We know that viral infections are the main driver to this. We can look at natural ways to allow your immune system to get a better grasp on the respiratory system and provide the body with an added layer of protection.†

We can look at things such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC). This is great because it helps to bolster up your natural glutathione production. It also helps to thin out the mucus in the respiratory bronchi and lungs that is thickened by the inflammatory system. Oftentimes when people have or are prone to acute bronchitis and they have this hacking cough for several weeks, NAC can do so much in terms of minimizing those yucky symptoms.†    

Formulations such as the Immunity HxⓇ can also be beneficial to get much-needed Vitamin C, Vitamin D and zinc. We also have to look at things like black seed extract, which helps to ease inflammation throughout the respiratory system. It’s combined with rosemary extract and it really helps to offset some of the other allergen triggers, such as histamine. The addition of cordyceps mushrooms also helps to enhance our immune defenses. It’s a really great formulation combination for acute bronchitis.†

Let’s talk about the basics of supplementation today. People often ask me what vitamins and minerals they should include every single day, outside of any specific health concern that I may have. This is a very important question to ask because whether you’re new to supplementation or have been taking supplements for years, this is a crucial part of your daily routine. I want to talk in detail today about why it’s so important to make sure you include the basics.†

The importance of taking a high-quality multivitamin

Let’s talk about why it’s important to have a core multivitamin, multimineral routine each and every single day. Our Core Multivitamin is a comprehensive blend of all the essential vitamins and minerals that the body needs just to support everyday functionality. This includes our immune system, cardiovascular system, brain and liver. The Core Multivitamin is the best place to get started.†

This formulation also includes a comprehensive eye nutrient mix in it. You’re getting lutein to help fend off the effects of blue light rays. We have also power packed this formulation with antioxidants, because the more antioxidants, the better off we are.†

We know that the average American is not getting adequate vitamins and minerals when it comes to their diet, so this is why taking a multivitamin is so integral to helping to support the longevity of your cells.† 

How to combat nutrient deficiencies

We can look across the board and we can see how deficiencies in certain nutrients are linked to different health problems. Vitamin D is a huge one, which is why I also recommend taking Vitamin D3 as part of your daily routine. Researchers have linked low levels of Vitamin D with tension headaches, cardiovascular risk, respiratory health and immune function. We know that Vitamin D is very important.†

We also have to think about cellular energy production. This is why I always include Ubiquinol CoQ10 into anyone’s daily nutrient routine. Coenzyme Q10 is produced in the body naturally, but as we get older, that production starts to diminish. This means that our source of cellular energy begins to decline. This is problematic because CoQ10 is a nutrient that is essential not only for energy production, but also as one of our endogenous antioxidants.† 

We also have to include magnesium in the mix because most people are not getting enough of this nutrient through their diet. Magnesium is required for over 300 enzymatic functions in the body. Even though this mineral is in the Core Multivitamin, so many people do not get enough of it, so I recommend supplementing with magnesium glycinate.†

Lastly, we want to be sure that we are supporting our gut-brain connection, so we’re going to include Probiotic HxⓇ. The better we can support our microbial environment, the better off everything in the body is going to function. This includes nutrient absorption, immune system function, cognition, inflammation and more.†     

These are just basic nutrients that can help support your body on a daily basis. If someone is dealing with other health conditions that may require higher amounts of these nutrients, then you want to adjust based off of that.†  

In this episode, Amanda Williams, MPH provides a list of nutrients that are important for helping the body function properly on a daily basis. She discusses why these nutrients are so important and why they work well together as a basic supplementation routine.†

Key Topics:

  • The importance of having activated nutrients
  • The downfall of many other multivitamins
  • Blood levels to get tested to help you understand your body
