Here at Holland & Barrett, we stock a wide range of products to help support your immune system, including various vitamins and minerals.
Whilst there is not much we can do about our genes, the one thing we can do to support the immune system is to control our diets.
There are certain vitamins and minerals that help the immune system function normally, so making sure that we keep them topped up is key.
There is a reason your doctor tells you to make sure you are getting enough vitamin C during the winter months. This vitamin is essential for the normal functioning of your immune system.
If you are concerned that you might not be getting enough vitamin C naturally, through your daily diet, then you might want to think about taking an additional vitamin C supplement.
Holland & Barrett Vitamin C with Wild Rose Hips Caplets contains rose hips, for a natural source of vitamin C, to help support the normal function of the immune system.
The elusive vitamin D is key for normal immune function but it is hard to get in areas like the UK.
This is because the main source of vitamin D comes from the direct exposure of the skin to sunlight and we do not see that much of it year round in the UK!
You can get vit D from some foods, including red meat, egg yolks and oily fish but some diets do not include these. Do not worry though, a vitamin D supplement could sort you out and keep your levels topped up.
Holland & Barrett Vitamin D3 Tablets contribute to the maintenance of normal bones, muscles function and the normal functioning of the immune system.
The body needs essential mineral zinc for a variety of important tasks.
