How to rebuild immunity after illness?

During an infection or a cold, the immune system has its "hands full". However, it must not be forgotten that after the illness, the immunity must be rebuilt and the body's balance restored. How can this be done? How should the immune system be supported?

Strengthening immunity and the gut after illness

Most serious diseases require the use of pharmacological agents - antibiotics. As the name suggests, their effect is based on combating microorganisms which are bacteria. However, the effect of antibiotics is not limited to pathogenic bacteria. It must not be forgotten that the drugs also affect the condition and functioning of the intestinal microbiota, which is responsible for, among other things, the synthesis of certain vitamins, the absorption of active ingredients from food (e.g. vitamins) and determines optimal immune function.


In addition to a healthy and balanced diet, it is worth reaching for the Olimp Colonbiotic 7GG Sport Edition supplement. This product of Olimp Sport Nutrition is a synbiotic, i.e. a combination of live bacteria cultures (probiotic) with a nutrient solution in the form of fructooligosaccharides (prebiotic). It enables faster multiplication of bacteria and more efficient restoration of the lost microbiological balance. The product is available in capsule form.

Immune reconstruction after illness with vitamins and minerals

One of the most effective ways to rebuild immunity after illness is to enrich the diet with valuable vitamins and minerals. Although all micronutrients play an important role for the body, some of them are particularly important for the work of the immune system. Zinc and vitamins C and D are extremely valuable in supporting the fight against free radicals and supporting the protection against the adverse effects of oxidative stress.


These components are included in Olimp Immuno Xplode Powder, which additionally contains inulin, elderberry extract, Japanese pagoda tree extract (as a natural source of quercetin) and valuable amino acids: L-cystine and L-glutamine. All ingredients have been selected in optimal proportions, and the form of an easily soluble powder allows for the preparation of a refreshing drink with a fruit lemonade taste.

L-glutamine for immune reconstruction after illness

The aforementioned L-glutamine proves to be an essential component for healthy immunity - especially when it comes to rebuilding it after illness. People who are ill, dealing with stress or high levels of fatigue often exhibit reduced levels of glutamine. This compound is an endogenous amino acid which contributes to the formation of muscles.


The offer of Olimp Sport Nutrition includes several products allowing you to enrich your daily diet with high quality L-glutamine. The supplements are available both in the form of capsules (Olimp Glutamine 1400 Mega Caps) and easily soluble powder (Olimp Glutamine Xplode and Olimp Rocky Athletes Glutamine). All formulations are made in accordance with the pharmaceutical standard of Olimp Laboratories.
