An autoimmune disease is a conditi on in which your immune system mistakenly attacks your body. Collectively, these diseases affect more than 24 million people in the United States.

Examples of autoimmune diseases include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy
  • Psoriasis
  • Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
  • Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1 Diabetes)
  • Celiac Disease
  • Sjogren’s Syndrome
  • Lyme Disease
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson’s

Adequate diet, exercise, lifestyle habits and vitamins and supplements will help reduce your risk of developing an autoimmune disease.

Vitamin B1 supports mental well-being and mood. Vitamin B2 helps reduce stress.

•As an antioxidant Vitamin C has been promoted to help prevent and/or treat numerous health conditions including cancer, cardiovascular disease, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and the common cold.

Vitamin D is important to the body in many ways. Muscles need it to move, nerves need it to carry messages between the brain and every body part, and the immune system needs it to fight bacteria and viruses. 

Melatonin helps with the timing of your 24-hour internal clock and with sleep. Melatonin may help with certain conditions, such as jet lag, delayed sleep-wake phase disorder, some sleep disorders in children, and anxiety before and after surgery.

Oxidative stress, a process that can trigger cell damage caused by free radicals is thought to play a role in a variety of diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and eye diseases. Antioxidants in supplements can counteract oxidative stress.
