Nutrient Power for Immune Resilience

This month, elevate your winter wellness with science-backed supplements!

During the winter, reinforcing our immune defenses becomes important. Moving beyond the basics of a healthy lifestyle, let’s explore science-backed supplements that can provide an extra boost to your immune system.

Vitamin A – The Defender: Vitamin A is a key player in our first line of defense against viruses. Foods like liver, sweet potatoes, and dark leafy greens can be excellent sources.

Vitamin C – Antioxidant Armor: Boost white blood cells and antibody production with the potent antioxidant, vitamin C. Citrus fruits, bell peppers, and broccoli are delicious sources. Consider adding a supplement or multivitamin for an extra immune kick.

Vitamin D – Sunlit Immunity: Communicating with immune cells, vitamin D helps release the proper fighters when needed. While sunlight is the best source, small amounts can be found in foods like fish and egg yolks.

Zinc – The Micronutrient Guardian: Optimize zinc levels to fight colds and viral infections. Oysters, seeds, and nuts are rich sources. Consider a zinc supplement after consulting with a nutritionist.
