Give Winter blues the cold shoulder with the right vitamins

As temperatures drop, so does our immune system’s ability to fight off disease. And we need to nourish ourselves with as many essential nutrients as possible.

We can do multiple things to make sure our immune system stays strong, like managing our stress, maintaining a healthy work-life balance, eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep … the list goes on. As much as we try to do these things equally, we must admit that a little help goes a long way. This is where cutting-edge supplements from VitaminMe step in.

Getting out of bed when it’s cold and dark outside is no mean feat. It’s a lot easier if you’ve had a night of restful, restorative sleep and your energy levels are where they need to be. VitaminMe has a range of high-quality supplements to help you avoid feeling under the weather.

What makes these products your new best friend when fighting winter woes? Their tried and tested ingredients are sourced from nature.

Energy + Mood

There are two main natural ingredients in this formula that are guaranteed to increase energy and put a smile on your dial, even when it’s miserable outside.

These magic makers are:

B12 – another key player that doesn’t occur naturally within the body. It’s crucial for energy production, so if you aren’t getting enough in, you’ll experience energy lows.

It also plays an important role in the optimal functioning of the immune system.

5-htp – an amino acid that is not produced by the body nor found in the food we consume, but in the seeds of an African plant known as Griffonia Simplicifolia. It helps increase the production of serotonin in the brain, which plays an important role in regulating mood, appetite and sleep.

It also reduces the symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Daily Multivitamin – Strength + maintain a healthy immune system

Echinacea – one of the most popular herbs worldwide, the coneflower is packed with all the good stuff. Echinacea fights stress and chronic disease through its plant antioxidant compounds. It’s a necessity to welcome winter with confidence.

Vitamin C – is no stranger to the list of things we need to consume for optimum health. Supporting the production of white blood cells, which form the body’s natural defence against infection, this vital vitamin works wonders. Tip: citrus and other fruit are a great source of Vitamin C, but rarely enough to meet daily requirements.

Zinc – Zinc helps the body’s defence cells counteract infection and regulate immune responses. Bonus: it’s excellent for skin health, bones, nails, and hair growth.
