3. Vitamin C
Boosting your immune system is always a great idea when you have an infection. But that’s just one of the reasons that you should be using vitamin C if you have strep throat. Most health experts recommend that you take 1000 milligrams of vitamin C every day no matter what. But if you’re fighting off an infection of any kind – including strep throat – then you should be taking 4000 mg of vitamin C a day.
Vitamin C is great for improving your immune system response and repairing damage within the body. For strep throat, it is recommended that you both take a vitamin C supplement and that you eat foods that are high in vitamin C such as many citrus fruits. Some people with strep throat make smoothies out of vitamin C fruits because they are much easier to swallow. You can also find vitamin C in capsules, Gummies, and more.
