Webinar: The Role of Nutrients in Developing a Healthy Immune System

August 9, 2022

Consumers are consistently misled and misinformed about the role of specific vitamin and mineral supplements that claim to support the immune system. What’s more, this has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Tuesday, August 9, 2022, from 2-3 p.m., join Mike Roussell, PhD., as he discusses the role of a nutrient-rich dietary pattern that includes pistachios to support overall immune health. Dr. Mike will describe specific benefits of key nutrients that play a role in developing a healthy immune response. He will also explore the lifestyle “blockers” that may impair and impede the most robust attempts at using nutrition to enhance the body’s immune response to external pathogens.
