Which vitamins are good for winter?
Because we get fewer hours of sunshine, our body will also have to burn more calories to stay warm. The physiological effects and mental effects associated with them mean that specific vitamins and supplements should be prioritized in winter. We mention the four most important nutritional supplements to help you get through the dark days.
Why take extra vitamin D3?
Vitamin D3 also called the ''sunshine vitamin''. Your body produces it naturally when exposed to sunlight. But that happens less often in winter. The reason for this is logical: in winter we have shorter days, we are outside less often and when we are outside we wear multiple layers of clothing that cover our skin. We need vitamin D3 for bone health, mental health and a properly functioning immune system. In winter it is therefore wise to supplement with vitamin D3 for optimal health.
Vitamin C is crucial all year round, but especially in the winter months. Vitamin C is important for a properly functioning immune system. Vitamin C is, as it were, a boost for strengthening your immune system. In addition to eating various fruits and vegetables, it is wise to supplement with extra vitamin C, especially during the winter months.
Vitamin B12 is very important for winter. It can help to combat a 'winter blues'. Scientific research shows that Vitamin B12 makes a positive contribution to mental resilience. In addition, vitamin B12 is involved in many different physical processes, including your energy metabolism.
Omega 3 is important all year round but especially in the winter months. Omega 3 is important for many physical processes in the body. It is important, among other things, for healthy skin. The fatty acids from Omega-3 during the winter are extra important when we are exposed to cold temperatures, dry and heated air. With enough omega 3 you ensure well-hydrated skin.
