Time to Support your immune system?
Immune system

Even though we love the beautiful September light, we also know that fall and winter will challenge our immune system. This is why we, in our given times, will recommend you to focus on the function of your immune system. Make sure to give your body the optimal conditions to stay healthy and balanced through the coming dark and cold months.

There are certain essential minerals and vitamins that are scientifically known to support a well-functioning immune system. Among these Vitamin D, Vitamin C and Selenium are some of the most relevant to supplement.

 

VITAMIN D3

Vitamin D3 is also known as the sunshine vitamin because you mostly absorb it through the rays of the sun. It is an essential vitamin, because we cannot make it our selves which means we have to get it through our diet (mostly through fatty fish and eggs) or the sun. 

Vitamin D is an important part of your immune system. Vitamin D deficiency is unfortunately very common and most people are not aware of it. It is estimated that 1 billion people around the globe is Vitamin D deficient (source). 

Especially in the northern countries where the exposure to the sun is limited 6 out of 12 months of the year. Also people with dark skin, elderly people and infants, are disposable for low Vitamin D levels, because of their ability to absorb Vitamin D and their limited amount of time in the sun. This is why health authorities around the world recommend that these population groups support their health with Vitamin D (source). We always recommend to get your Vitamin D level tested if possible. Then you know exactly what you have to work with.

Our VItamin D3 1500 iu / 37,5 mcg is based on Vitamin D3, which is the most active form of Vitamin D.

RECOMMENDED DAILY DOSAGE:
We recommend 2 tablets in times where you wish to support your immunsystem.

Recommended dosage: 1 tablet pr day.

 
 
 
VITAMIN C 500 mg

Humans are not able to form Vitamin C themselves - and it is therefore important to get Vitamin C through our diet. You mostly get it from dark leafy green vegetables and vibrant colored fruits.

Vitamin C has a great record of health claims - which is why it is one of our absolute favorite vitamins! Vitamin C contributes to a well-functioning immune system, to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, increase iron absorption and supports the collagen synthesis.
 
Recommended daily dosage: In times where you wish to support your immune system, we recommend a daily dose 1000mg of Vitamin C. That equals 2 tablets of Vitamin C 500 mg taken throughout the day ( morning and afternoon).

Our VITAMIN C 500 mg contains 250 tablets and is formulated with Rosehip extract, Rutin powder and Calcium for better absorption. It has small white tablets - easy to swallow.
 
 
 
VITAMIN C 500 mg

This Vitamin C from VitOrtho is a great alternative to our own Vitamin C 500 mg. It contains 120 tablets and each tablet is formulated with 500 mg Vitamin C combined with 25 mg Citrus Bioflavonoids for better absorbation.

Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin which means that the body automatically excrete excess amounts.  It usually stays in the body for 3-4 hours, which makes it extremely difficult to get "too much". This is also why we always recommend to take Vitamin C several times during the day in times where you wish to support the immune system thoroughly.
 
 
 
SELENIUM 200 mg

Selenium is an essential mineral, which means you have to get it through your diet, as your body cannot produce it itself. Many are not aware of the importance of Selenium and what an amazing mineral it is.

Selenium serves as a powerful antioxidant and you mostly get it through whole grain and white meat. This mineral supports a well-functioning immune system and contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
 
Recommended dosage: Our SELENIUM gives you 200 mg of Selenium pr capsule and we recommend 1 capsule a day in times where you wish to support your immune system.
