Supplementen om de winter goed door te komen
Winter is coming…
That means that the days are getting shorter, we will have falling temperatures, and we will spend more time indoors. For many people, winter is not something to look forward too. Often people suffer from a ‘winter dip’. In this blog we will explain how you can prepare yourself as well as possible for the winter period.
Which vitamins to take in the winter?
In the winter we have less hours of sunshine, our body will also have to burn more calories to stay warm. The physiological effects and the mental effects that come with that mean that specific vitamins and supplements should be given priority in the winter. We mention the four most important dietary supplements, to get you through the dark days well.
Why take extra vitamin D3?
Vitamine D3 also called the ”sun vitamin”. Makes your body naturally when it is exposed to sunlight. But that happens less when it’s winter. The reason for this is logical: in winter we have shorter days, we are less outside and when we are outside we wear several layers of clothing that covers our skin. We need vitamin D3 for bone health, mental health and for a well-functioning immune system. Especially in the winter, it is wise to supplement vitamin D3 for optimal health.
Vitamine C is crucial all year round, but especially in the winter months. Vitamin C is important for a well-functioning immune system. Vitamin C is a boost for strengthening your immune system. And in addition to eating various fruits and vegetables, it is wise to use extra vitamin C supplements in the winter months.
Vitamine B12 is very important for the winter months. It can help to prevent a ‘winter dip’. Scientific research shows that Vitamin B12 makes a positive contribution to mental resilience. In addition, vitamin B12 is involved in many different body processes, including your energy balance.
Omega 3 is important all year round but especially in the winter months. Omega 3 is important for many body processes. Among other things, it is important for a healthy skin. The fatty acids from Omega-3 during the winter are extra important when we are exposed to cold temperatures and dry and heated air. With enough omega 3 you ensure a well-hydrated skin.
