Unfortunately, I am one of those people that ALWAYS gets sick in winter. No matter what I eat or how much I exercise, at some point (if not many points) through winter, I will have some sort of head or chest thing going on. Even my work colleagues pass comment when the season changes and predict my forthcoming illness.
In an attempt to beef up my immunity and offer myself as much protection as possible, I happily accepted an offer from Simply Supplements to try their Vitamin D3 2000iu* (£7.20) and Selenium with Multivitamins & Iron* (£8.85).
According to the Simply Supplements website, the Vitamin D3 2000iu* “is popularly taken to maintain strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also promotes a healthy immune system and normal muscle function.” Vitamin D is usually sourced from the sun’s rays so for someone like me, who works in an office 9 to 5 and gets to see very little sun, this is a good vitamin to take.
The Selenium within the Selenium with Multivitamins & Iron* “can help to defend the body’s cells against oxidative stress caused by ‘free-radicals’, which is thought to be a leading cause of disease and premature ageing. Selenium has also been shown to support a healthy immune system, fertility and thyroid function.” The added multivitamins are A, C, D and E, and along with the iron offer added protection. “These high quality nutrients support healthy brain function, immune defence and the maintenance of healthy skin and hair.”
I have been taking these for a month now and so far, so good! I may have just been lucky so far but seeing as I commute daily (surrounded by lots of coughing and spluttering), I think these supplements may be doing the trick.
