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 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.
