Robert Rountree, MD on Immune Modulators

In this brief video Dr Rountree describes his 4 favorite nutrition supplements for immune modulation:

NAC – N-acetylcysteine – which activates immune cells as well as regulates the immune system so that it’s less likely to contribute to an auto-immune process. NAC is a procursor to glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant.

Probiotic – to help suppress unhealthy bacteria and promote growth of healthy commensal bacteria

Curcumin (key component of turmeric) – immunomodulator and anti-inflammatory

Medicinal Mushrooms or Medicinal Yeast – primes immune system to be ready to respond (but not overreact) when infectious agents come along.

I incorporate these foundational products into my practice every day.

Dr. Robert Rountree is an educator with the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM). In his Boulder, Colorado practice, he combines traditional family medicine, nutrition, herbology and mind-body therapies.
