In the cold season, your immune system could use some boost. Cold, damp weather, dry heating air, and lack of sunlight often lead to a weak defense mechanism. If you then come into contact with many people, the risk of catching colds and other viruses increases. So it’s time to support our immune system so that it steadily accompanies us during the winter months.
Vitamin D: Boosts the immune system
Vitamin D, the so-called sunshine vitamin, has a great effect on the immune system. It supports the normal function of our immune system and is also a real mood enhancer. Normally, our body produces vitamin D itself by converting the sunlight we absorb during normal outdoor activities into exactly this vitamin. But this is difficult in the dark season. “Unlike the summer months, solar radiation in Germany in the months from October to March is not strong enough to ensure adequate formation of vitamin D,” says a publication of the German Society for Nutrition. Although the body can store the vitamin, “stocks” are usually not enough for the entire winter. It is very important to regularly eat foods high in vitamin D3 – such as oily fish such as herring, mackerel and salmon, or mushrooms such as champignons and mushrooms. Additional intake of a vitamin D preparation such as Ermsech Immun may also be recommended. Not only does it contain vitamins D3 and C, but the minerals zinc and calcium as well as parts of Echinacea purpurea – a plant that was already used by the indigenous people of North America as a versatile remedy.
Move a lot and sleep well
Vitamin C protects against oxidative stress and, like zinc and vitamin D, contributes to a normally functioning immune system. Calcium also promotes a normal energy metabolism. Micronutrient capsules are available in pharmacies and at www.biokanol-shop.de. If you want to support your immune system, you should generally eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables and avoid excessive alcohol consumption. Equally important: get regular outdoor exercise. Even cloudy skies provide some solar radiation, and in general, walking and light sports outdoors keep you fit and stimulate your blood circulation. Adequate restful sleep also has a positive effect on the immune system. (dj).
