September 22nd came and went, and now the season is officially autumn. Summer 2021 left us with good memories and cherished moments with family, but as we head into the cooler months, it’s time to think about protecting our health.
Cold and flu season is right around the corner, and if there’s anything the COVID-19 pandemic taught us, it’s the importance of supporting our immune systems. Let’s look at the increased risk for infection that the cooler weather presents, and what people should consider doing to stay healthy.
Rates of Illness; When People are Most Likely to Get Sick
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention closely monitors infection rates throughout America, especially with infections that can be fatal, like influenza. According to the CDC, infection rates start to creep up in September.
In October and November, infection rates rise further, with a noticeable percentage of the population testing positive for influenza. These rates spike in December, January, February, and March, with a marked impact on school attendance and workplace attendance. Hospitals experience a greater caseload, and mortality rates go up during this time of the year.
As harsh as the cold and flu season can be for some families, much of the high rates of illness could be avoided if each family member made concerted efforts to protect their health and support their immune system.
Natural Zinc; Heal the Body and Support Immune Function All at Once
Zinc is an essential mineral, something the human body needs to survive. However, there is much more to zinc than that. Zinc is also a key mineral and nutrient for supporting immune function.
One scientific paper put it as such:
- “Zinc is known to play a central role in the immune system, and zinc-deficient persons experience increased susceptibility to a variety of pathogens.”
Zinc is a building block of the human body, and immune cells need zinc minerals to grow, spread across the body, and perform their basic functions. And while sufficient amounts of zinc can be obtained by simply maintaining a healthy diet; Americans might want to consider supplementing with zinc during flu season, especially if they cannot consume foods that are rich in zinc.

Turmeric with Black Pepper; An Ayurvedic Approach to Immune Health
Turmeric has been in use to promote health and wellness for thousands of years. The key ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, an orange-yellow component of the spice. Turmeric has been used as a potent anti-inflammatory for eons, but new data shows this natural substance offers great benefits to the immune system.
Quoting one scientific paper:
- “Traditionally known for its an anti-inflammatory effects, curcumin has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent that can modulate the activation of T cells, B cells, and natural killer cells.”
In layman’s terms, what that means is that curcumin/turmeric modulates immune function by activating the very same cells within the immune system that fight infection! On top of that, the fact that turmeric is an anti-inflammatory also assists in the body’s immune function, as a body that is struggling with inflammation is more at risk for infection than one that is not.
To help boost immune function and reduce inflammation, Immune Solution created a healthful supplement called Turmeric with Black Pepper. This supplement was created exactly as Ayurvedic medicine experts intended, creating a nutrient with antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties.
