Go Green This Spring: The Best Herbal Supplements for Energy + Wellness
Solaray’s Top Picks for Spring Flings
Does setting your clock forward leave you need a little extra sleep--or an energy boost? It’s not just you. Nor is it a coincidence! Daylight Savings Time can really impact your physical and mental well being in the spring.
Not to mention that springtime also brings blossoms and blooms! With both time and environmental changes, it’s no wonder that so many people find themselves searching for seasonal support during the spring months.
Vitamins and Supplements Can Support Your Immune System!
It’s important and super helpful for your body to get all the necessary vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from healthy foods. They help your body achieve optimal health. It’s also wise to take supplements that contain antioxidants for extra measure.
In fact, vitamin and antioxidant supplements have been studied for their ability to help support your body’s immune system during both seasonal and environmental changes.
So Which Supplements, Vitamins, and Minerals Are Best for Your Spring Fling?
Here are our top picks for springtime supplements!
1. Solaray Vitamin C Blends --
Vitamin C is an amazing supplement. In fact, Vitamin C may help support the immune system through seasonal and environmental changes. It’s a perfect supplement to add to your diet if you’re looking for extra ammunition in your springtime arsenal, or you’re wanting to give your body a little extra oomph and pizzaz for seasonal or environmental changes.
At Solaray, we have a wide range of Vitamin C supplements depending on your needs. From a 500mg dose with bioflavonoid complex to Vitamin C with Rose Hips & Acerola, our blends have you covered no matter what this season brings your way.
2. Vitamin D3 + K2
Say hello to sunshine. Maybe you’ve heard this before, but one of the reasons why it’s so great to get outside and enjoy all the spring sunshine is how important it is for your body. When we’re out gallivanting in the sun, the body is synthesizing Vitamin D.
But sometimes March comes in like a lion. And hopefully the April showers will bring May flowers! But, if it’s a little tricky to get outside, or if you want your cardiovascular system firing on all cylinders, we recommend supplementing with Solaray’s Vitamin D3.
It’s a truly dynamic vitamin blend, synergizing all the sun-shiney goodness of vitamin D3 with the added benefits of K2, which may promote cardiovascular and bone health!
3. Think About Zinc
Chances are that you’ve heard about Zinc.
But what is it, exactly? Zinc’s a powerful mineral that plays many roles in the human body: cell growth and development, digestion, metabolism, and helps maintain a healthy immune system. Zinc naturally occurs in dozens upon dozens of food types. From seafood to dairy, even legumes, nuts, and cereals seem to have a bit of Zinc. Some have it way more than others.
For instance, if you eat just three oysters, you’ll get 74 milligrams of it! That’s 673% of your daily value. But then again, not everybody enjoys the mucilaginous texture of raw oysters sliding down their gullet. Maybe you’re better off eating 6-7 chicken breasts?
Then again, you could always enjoy one of our Zinc supplements. The daily recommended Zinc intake for women is 8 grams. In fact, our Bio Zinc contains 15mg of the stuff--nearly 200% of the daily intake for women.
The Most Bang for Your Buck
Ever heard the phrase “living well is the best revenge?” That’s because it is. Getting regular exercise, eating a proper and nutritious diet, and good hygiene habits all help us become the best possible versions of ourselves. Our bodies and minds will thank us--as will our immune systems!
In addition to healthy habits, our Immufight Maximum Daily Defense is a great daily supplement to take for both environmental and seasonal changes. It’s packed with multiple vitamins and minerals to help your body maintain its healthy immune function.
