More precisely, vitamins A, C and E and zinc support the barrier function of the skin.
Antioxidant principles such as vitamins C and E, selenium, copper and zinc counteract the harmful action of free radicals and other oxidizing compounds constantly produced by energy metabolism and more consistently during infections and inflammation. Furthermore, they modulate the reactivity of several key cells of the immune system and influence the production of pro-inflammatory substances such as cytokines and prostaglandins. Vitamins A, B12, C, D, E and folic acid and iron, zinc, copper and selenium minerals work in synergy to support the activity of the cells of the immune system. Furthermore, studies show that all these micronutrients, with the exception of vitamin C and iron, play a role in the production of antibodies.

In the latter case, probiotics may also be useful to promote better and faster physical recovery, with proven beneficial effects on gastrointestinal balance and the immune system.
