Tips for a strong immune system in cold season

The cold season is approaching and to stay healthy, it is crucial to strengthen our immune system. Our immune system is the first line of defence against viruses and bacteria, so it is essential to keep it in top condition. In this blog, we will share effective tips for strengthening your immune system and preventing colds, including suggestions on diet, daily habits and natural products that can improve your natural defences.

Food and key nutrients to strengthen your immune system

  • Vitamin C: This vitamin is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system. Find it in citrus fruits, peppers, strawberries and kiwis. If you opt for supplementation to ensure you get optimal levels of this vitamin, we recommend Bayer's Redoxon.

  • Vitamin D: Vitamin D plays an important role in regulating the immune response. Get enough sunlight and consider supplementation in the months when it is not available naturally.

  • Zinc: Zinc is an essential mineral for the immune system. Find it in lean meats, nuts and legumes or use supplements.

Daily habits that support immune health

There are certain daily habits that strengthen our immune system and help with cold prevention.

  • Regular exercise: Physical activity stimulates blood circulation and the lymphatic system, which can strengthen the immune system.

  • Quality sleep: Getting enough sleep is essential for a strong immune system. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

  • Hand washing: Wash your hands regularly to prevent the spread of germs.

  • Face masks: In risky situations, such as crowded spaces, wear masks to reduce exposure to viruses.

Supplements and natural products to improve your natural defences

There are certain brands that offer natural products that can help you with your health and respect your body and the environment, such as Aboca or Apoteca Natura. And some products that can improve your defences are:

  • Echinacea: Echinacea is an herb known for its ability to stimulate the immune system. You can find echinacea supplements in our pharmacy.

  • Propolis: Propolis, a substance produced by bees, has antimicrobial properties and can be useful to prevent colds.

At Farmacia Paseo del Mar, we offer a variety of supplements and natural products that can support the health of your immune system. Our team of experts can provide you with personalised advice on which ones are best suited to your needs.
