Germs generally only lead to illness when the immunity is weakened. In winter, when flu is going around: you are more likely to succumb. Taking supplements during this time is vital to strengthening your immune system.

Here is list of vitamins/supplements you should consider for your winter wellness:

Vitamin C

Acts on immune cells, increasing their production and activity

Immune Boosters

Help reduce susceptibility to cold and flu infections, assisting recovery.


Helps fight viruses for faster recovery from flu.

Vitamin D and Zinc

Vitamin D and Zinc both play essential roles in maintaining health, a strong immune system and general nutrition. Zinc contributes to the protection of oxidative stress and Vitamin D3. Even health-conscious and well-nourished people may be deficient in Vitamin D and Zinc.

Vitamin D3 has many benefits such as promoting healthy bones and teeth, supporting brain, immune and nervous system health, and much more.


Probiotics are living bacteria and yeasts that are good for the digestive system. They help keep the gut healthy.

They are found in yoghurt and also in supplements. Take a probiotic if you are taking antibiotics, because sometimes good bacteria are lost with the bad bacteria. This will help to keep your natural bacteria balanced and maintain gut health.


You can treat your own condition and ailments with over-the-counter medication without a doctor’s prescription. It is safe and effective, as long as you follow the specific directions on the label and as directed by your pharmacist.
