With the temperature dropping and the sun hibernating, there’s no denying that winter is finally here—and with the season comes increased stress and strain on your immune system. Yep, it’s not just your imagination that you tend to get sick more often during the cold-weather months.
These are some of the vitamins you need to stock up on this winter:

Vitamin B

This is the vitamin B-complex, a collection of water-soluble vitamins. B-vitamins completely boost your immune system and may improve your body’s overall health. They may calm the brain, improve the health of the neurological system, stimulate cellular renewal, elevate mood, guard the body against illness, and encourage a healthy cheerfulness that helps to ward off the winter blues.

 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C, a powerful immune system booster, helps lessen the frequency and intensity of colds and coughs. In addition, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that guards against cancer-causing free radicals, toxins, and pollutants as well as heart disease. It also plays a significant role in the body’s manufacture of collagen, which maintains the suppleness of joints and skin.

Iron 

Keep your iron high with an iron supplement! Iron is necessary for the formation of red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body.

VITAMIN D

Ordinarily, Vitamin D is obtained through direct exposure to sunlight. So, you can see why you might need a little boost during the dark days of winter! I remember when I was fighting Covid and it somewhat helped me bounce back well. It gives Vitamin C a hand supporting your immune system, it promotes a positive mood, and it supports bone strength by helping maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorous.

Zinc

Zincs help the body’s immune system fight off viruses and bacteria—making it a real MVP during cold and flu season. According to research Zinc has proven to be effective in preventing and reducing cold symptoms. It also helps prevent viruses from adhering to cell walls in the nasal passage and is involved in antibody production, an important immune system process.

 

Lastly, it might not be a supplement but please STEAM consistently during the winter.
