When you think about boosting your immune system vitamin C might be the first thing that comes to mind. But actually, there is also vitamin D for colds, which can help to keep us fighting fit all year round.
Vitamin D For Colds
We often suffer from a cold when our immune system is run down. It could be due to a time of stress or tiredness or it could be because we aren’t getting the right nutrients.
70% of us get at least one cold a year. Of these people, the BBC claim that “Vitamin D supplements could spare more than three million from colds each year.” That’s because vitamin D is one nutrient that our immune system needs to function. According to the NHS, “vitamin D is part of a complex process in which our body becomes ‘primed’ to fight infection.”
