Fighting Winter Illnesses

Matcha Health Benefits

Cold temperatures increase the risk of infection and inflammation:

Low temperatures and humidity levels have been shown to increase the transmission of respiratory viral disease such as the common flu  and COVID-19 .

Increased inflammation has also been linked to decreased outdoor temperatures; people with arthritis tend to feel more pain in the winter.

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:

Getting little extra help to stay well in the winter:
