5 Basic Micronutrients for Allergies

Your heightened allergy immune response to allergens, including inhaled and food allergens, is related to 5 micronutrients and your gut health.

Gut Health is Critical

Malabsorption of micronutrients may be causing your continuous allergy issues.

Medical research shows having gut/digestion issues and being low in zinc, iron, vitamin A, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin E is associated with atopy, a heightened response to allergens. Having gut issues can contribute to lower zinc and iron levels and leaky gut.

Women with allergies supplementing these micronutrients noticed improvement in symptoms.

Zinc, iron, vitamin A, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin E are micronutrients because only small amounts, mcgs and a few mgs, are needed by your body. It doesn’t take much of a gut issue to contribute to malabsorption and deficiency of micronutrients. Macronutrients include calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus since you need large amounts, hundreds to thousands of mgs of these nutrients.
