Supplements for Cold Winter Months
It seems like right after the heat is switched on for the winter, seasonal conditions are kicked into high gear. And while the colder months enable friends and loved ones to share the promise of a New Year, there are a host of other things that you’ll want to avoid “sharing.”
Vitamin C Supplements
Vitamin C is known for helping to enhance the immune system, so getting enough is important. Vitamin C helps to counteract free radicals that may stress the immune system and reduce a healthy response. Vitamin C supplements help maintain healthy levels of this essential nutrient in the body so the immunity system may function at its best.
Vitamin A Supplements
Vitamin A supplements help to sustain clear, sharp vision and play a critical role in the function of the heart, lungs, kidneys and other major organs, but did you know they also help boost adaptive immune tolerance? Vitamin A increases the antibody response, thereby acting as an immunity enhancer. Vitamin A is available in multivitamins, with fish oil, combined with vitamin D or as a stand-alone supplement, often in the form of beta carotene or vitamin A palmitate.
Vitamin E Supplements
Many are aware of vitamin E's benefits to cardiovascular and circulatory health as well as its outward beauty benefits, but did you know it could also help support and maintain immune system function, too? A powerful antioxidant, vitamin E helps maintain a strong immune system for solid defense against seasonal conditions and is especially beneficial for mature adults.
Whether you take Vitamins C, A, and E alone or combined in a multivitamin formula, these essential nutrients will help keep your immunity strong for whatever the season brings your way.*
