Autumn officially begins at the end of October, coinciding with the clocks falling back an hour, meaning the nights start to draw in and our opportunity for exposure to natural daylight lessen.
Which vitamins are best for autumn?
A balanced diet provides many of the daily nutrients we need to live a healthy lifestyle. To support our immune system through the autumn months and build up resilience ahead of winter, boosting our intake of nutrients through vitamins and supplements can help maintain wellbeing. Vitamins to top up on include:
- Vitamin C – the energising vitamin always associated with fresh oranges, is great for immunity and keeping fatigue at bay. Benefits to taking vitamin c include, maintaining healthy cells, skin and gums.
- Vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin is an essential vitamin in achieving complete body health. Vitamin D is made naturally by the body when exposed to sunlight (from the cholesterol on your skin cells). Although there are less hours of sunlight through autumn and winter, it’s important we still enjoy fresh air and daily exercise.
- Vitamin E – keeps you feeling good from the inside to the outside. The perfect vitamin for skin care, it helps protect skin cells, helps skin stay hydrated and protects skin form sun and air pollution.
- Zinc – always a good season to put a zing in your step and increase the natural levels of zinc stored in our bones. Zinc contributes to the successful running of bodily processes, including normal immune function, fertility, reproduction and bone health.
