Getting through the daily grind can be exhausting. Work, family, and friends all pose obligations that can sometimes be overwhelming. With the unprecedented challenges the pandemic has presented, just being able to get through our day-to-day responsibilities can zap your energy. This is why it’s important to take care of our wellbeing by embracing a healthy lifestyle.
This, of course, is easier said than done. While eating right to get all the nutrients and keeping an active lifestyle are healthy habits to build, supplements are great compliments that will help keep your health in check and ensure that you meet the daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals.
To help you get through your day, here are five vitamins highly recommended to boost the immune system and provide much-needed energy for those endless tasks on your to-do list:
Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids & Rose Hips
With strains of different viruses constantly emerging, it’s important that we keep our immune system strong and ready to fight off disease. Vitamin C plays an integral part in strengthening the immune system and is also an antioxidant that helps protect us from free radical build up that causes damage to our healthy cells. Puritan’s Pride’s Vitamin C includes Bioflavonoids & Rose Hips that help in boosting Vitamin C absorption and has anti-aging and skin whitening properties.
Unlike other vitamins, it is more challenging to fulfill the daily recommended amounts of vitamin D. Not only do very few foods naturally contain vitamin D, our increased time spent indoors these days may not allow our bodies to produce enough to get us through the day. Vitamin D supplements will help us regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus for our bones as well as ensure normal immune system function. Puritan’s Pride’s vitamin D supplements provide our body with vitamin D3, a high quality vitamin that mainly comes from animal sources such as fish oil, fatty fish, liver, and egg yolks. Vitamin D3 is most commonly used as a dietary supplement of Vitamin D.
Zinc is a micronutrient with anti-viral properties that helps our bodies fight off bacteria and viruses, produce protein, and regulate insulin levels. Although we only need small amounts of zinc, our bodies don’t store zinc the way it does other minerals. To help ensure efficient absorption, Puritan’s Pride offers Zinc Gluconate.
Skin health should never be overlooked. Collagen is the most abundant protein that our bodies naturally produce. In fact, it makes up one-third of our total protein count in the body. However, apart from major factors such as smoking and poor diet, our collagen also naturally reduces as we age. To help ensure that we get enough of the protein in our bodies, we need to take the extra mile by taking collagen as supplements. With the help of Puritan’s Pride’s Collagen Hydrolyzed, it can improve skin elasticity and keeps it smooth, while also promoting strong nails and shiny hair. It also protects the joints, muscles, and bones.
Sleep is very important to attain good health. Melatonin is a brain-produced hormone that responds to and increases in the darkness. Melatonin helps regulate the timing of our circadian rhythms and improve sleep quality, helping you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. It also helps in regulating moods. Apart from helping you get a goodnight’s sleep, melatonin can also aid in immunity through activating T-cells, a special kind of white blood cells, which help in protecting the body. It is also considered a special type of antioxidant.
