During the winter, our immune system can take a hit, making us more vulnerable to illnesses. The good news is that supplements can help strengthen our immune system and keep us healthy. We need to up some heavy hitters during the cold and flu season.
First on the list is vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that can protect our body against colds and flu. It also reduces fatigue, not to mention the risk of heart disease. You can typically get it from foods like citrus fruits, kiwis, and bell peppers or take it as a supplement.
Vitamin D is another supplement that can be beneficial during the winter months. Our body naturally produces vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. But since we often don’t get enough of it in the winter, a supplement can help regulate our immune system and reduce the risk of respiratory infections.
Zinc is a mineral that is vital for a healthy immune system. Multiple studies have shown it can help lessen the severity and duration of colds. You can find zinc in foods like oysters, beef, and pumpkin seeds, or take it as — you guessed it — a supplement!
Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Our Supra-Mune Essentials has these all-star players in it. It’s definitely a staple this time of year.

But with the help of these vitamins and superstar mineral, you can give your immune system a much-needed boost during the winter and stay healthy.
