The colder months are well and truly upon us!
The colder months are well and truly upon us, and throughout autumn and winter, it is not uncommon to start feeling a little under the weather. Most of us go through stages of feeling unwell as the weather turns cold and wet, but that doesn’t have to be the case.
So, what can you do apart from stock up on tissues and Lemsip?
Autumn and winter bring less sunlight, cool nights, plenty of rain and the flu season. Not only that, but we find ourselves lacking energy and motivation, picking up sniffles regularly, and some people are more likely to not be feeling themselves.
You can help keep yourself feeling good and energised all throughout winter by giving your body the things it needs to thrive.
Vitamin C helps to build up the immune system and boost immunity in the winter months. Not only that, but it reduces oxidative stress and protects against free radicals. It has previously been thought that upping Vitamin C consumption will prevent you from getting sick, which has never been proved. However, it is well known for helping ease illnesses when you are sick.
Getting a dose of Vitamin C everyday can help reduce symptoms of colds and flu. Vitamin C is essential for the body all year round, and whilst it can be found in many foods, our Multivitamin gummies can ensure you are getting enough during the winter months.
We primarily get our Vitamin D from direct sunlight, and during the winter, this is much more difficult. On those days where you leave the house in the dark and come home in the dark, your Vitamin D levels could be very low, leaving you feeling tired and unwell. Get your Vitamin D with our chewable gummy multivitamins in the winter which can help to strengthen your bones and increase feel-good hormones in the brain.
Omega 3 is used to make cell membranes, so it is critical in keeping every cell in your body healthy. Healthy levels of Omega 3 Fatty Acids work to lower your risk of disease and reduce inflammation.
Omega 3 is claimed to help with memory, brain performance and overall behaviour. An Omega 3 deficiency can lead to fatigue, dry skin, mood swings and depression, all of which can be even worse during winter.
We usually get our Omega-3 from eating seafood, but this is riddled with problems. It’s full of chemical and metal contaminants. Did you know that Omega-3 is only found in fish because they directly or indirectly consume algae? That’s why we extract our Fish-Free Omega-3 straight from the source. Our marine algae oil is sustainably produced and carefully purified to give you all the great nutrients and none of the heavy metal contaminants.
