With Winter here and cold, coughs and flu season just around the corner, supercharging your immune system could be easier than ever with these essential Vitamins.
When mentioning you have a cold to almost anyone you know one of the first things they will say in response is make sure you take Vitamin C. But why Vitamin C….? What is it about this everyday vitamin that seems to be able to get you back on your feet and get rid of the aches and pains of that pesky cold?
Within your body Vitamin C plays an extremely important role in protecting you. It acts as a powerful antioxidant protecting cells from free radicals and oxidative stress. Think of Vitamin C as your personal bodyguard ready to jump in front of a free radical / oxidative bullet next time it tries to attack your cells, sacrificing itself for the greater good!
200mg of Vitamin C not only boosts your immune system but if you find yourself struck down by a cold it can reduce the duration and severity of the symptoms!
Another major driving factor of catching those annoying colds are the dark nights and lack of sunlight exposure we receive during these months.
We get vast amounts of Vitamin D from the sun in summer but in winter when we are all wrapped up and stuck inside, we have to live off our bodies Vitamin D stores accumulated over summer. Taking a Vitamin D supplement each day is not only good for bone health but it significantly improves the function of your immune system.
Combining these humble vitamins could see you stronger and fitter than ever this winter, however if you are one of the unlucky ones and you are struck down, keep up the supplements and you could see it gone before you empty that jumbo box of Kleenex.
Try our Vitamin C + D Complex which provides a super strength dosage to help with those winter ailments.
