These days, probably the number one topic of conversation in the health world is immunity. Never has our dependence on a healthy immune system been so obvious. So, it’s very timely that Dr. James DiNicolantonio has published his new book, The Immunity Fix.
The Immunity Fix explores, first, the notion that we can have a huge impact on the functionality of our immune systems based on the choices we make every day. He talks about the fundamental role of nutrition and especially the threat of deficiency of various trace minerals like magnesium and others, as well as how we should go about repleting our deficiencies. Beyond minerals, he describes how to use other, more exotic nutritional supplements appropriately to augment immune function and why the balance of immune function is particularly relevant in COVID-19.
