Low white blood cell count (Leukopenia) can be caused by the following:

B12 deficiency (common), medications such as antibiotics that destroy white blood cells, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, liver disease, Sarcoidosis, viral infections that temporarily disrupt the work of bone marrow, autoimmune disorders (rheumatoid arthritis, etc.) that destroy white blood cells or bone marrow cells, diseases that damage bone marrow such as leukaemia, Severe infections that use up white blood cells faster than they can be produced. WBC can be also lower after viral infections.


In order to deal with this problem it is vital to find the underlying cause.

In addition I would immediately start taking the following to increase WBC count and boost immunity to prevent farther problems:

Most important to increase WBC count should be MetCobin (sublingual methylcobalamin form of Vitamin B12) (most important factor required in our body for all blood cells production, including white blood cells) – 2-3 tabl under the tongue after breakfast every day for a month. After that 1 tabl after breakfast.

Zinc – 15-50 mg a day after breakfast

Selenium – 50 – 200 mcg a day after breakfast

Vitamin D3 – 5,000 – 10,000 IU a day with breakfast (to boost immunity)

Magcitra (Magnesium Citrate) – 1 tabl before breakfast and 2 tabl in the evening (must be taken as Vitamin D will lead to magnesium deficiency)

Taking good quality probiotics such as UltraProbio or ImmuProbio is another great idea in case of low WBC count

Healthy Mega – 1 after breakfast

Organic Chlorella powder or Super Greens – 2 tablespoons with juice or water 30 min before breakfast and 1 tablesp before second meal

Plenty of raw vegetable salads, vegetable juices, vegetable smoothies
