Sustained wellness starts with strong immunity
What a year 2020 is turning out to be! Aside from being the year of Covid-19, it has also seen the introduction of social distancing, face masks and increased hand washing. Countless parents and children have been introduced to online schooling, and online meetings have increased exponentially overnight. That's not where it has ended, however. Many have faced retrenchment, the depletion of a nest egg, and the loss of a loved one. How does one stay healthy amidst this 'new normal'?
Are you getting adequate nutrition?
Eating healthily and getting exercise are a start, but when you realise that even a healthy diet doesn’t supply your body with all the micronutrients it needs, it’s time to consider supplementation. Did you know, there are at least 30 vitamins, minerals and dietary components which the body needs, but cannot adequately manufacture in sufficient amounts! 1
Immunity starts with ‘C’
Vitamin C is probably one of the most talked-about vitamins of the year. It bolsters your immune system, promotes the normal functioning of your nervous system, and assists in the reduction of fatigue, promoting a feeling of wellness.2 A potent antioxidant, Vitamin C works to protect the cells from oxidative stress.3
‘D’ scores top marks, too!
Vitamin D may be an important way to arm the immune system against infections like the common cold. A large study noted that Vitamin D supplements protect against acute respiratory infections including colds and flu, providing robust evidence that this vitamin has benefits beyond bone and muscle health.4
