Cold temperatures increase the risk of infection and inflammation:
Changing seasonal factors such as sunlight and temperature affect Vitamin D and the immune system:
Our bodies are less exposed to sunlight in the winter which has a direct effect on the production of Vitamin D by the skin. As well as facilitating calcium absorption and promoting bone health, Vitamin D plays an important role in strengthening our immune system. Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with many immune disorders.
Vitamins and trace minerals such as Zinc and Selenium boost the immune system:
- Micronutrients including vitamins and trace minerals are essential for maintaining a strong immune system.
- A recent study suggests that Vitamin D, Zinc and Selenium supplements may mitigate the progression of COVID-19.
