When autumn comes, the crisp air often brings with it runny noses. Immunity is a versatile entity and the body's own means of protecting itself from pathogens. The building of resistance is affected by many different factors, some of which each of us can influence. A versatile diet rich in fiber, iron and vegetables is the first step in strengthening immunity. Stress causes unpleasant inflammatory states in our body, which makes it easier for various bugs to attack through the immune system. So try to avoid stress and get enough sleep, because sleep is our body's best means of recovery and, as it were, "resets" resistance. Our urgent and exhausting lifestyle has led many to the fact that it may be difficult to get enough vitamins and trace elements from food, for example, getting vitamin D in Finland in winter is almost impossible. In order to get your daily dose of immunity-boosting foods, high-quality nutritional supplements, especially during the dark months, help maintain the best possible functioning of the immune system. According to research, vitamins D, C and B12 affect the function of immunity. Among the trace elements, zinc and selenium have approved health claims for supporting immunity. Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an important vitamin for bones and muscles, as it helps calcium to be absorbed, which ensures efficient bone regeneration, and in addition, vitamin D promotes the maintenance of normal muscle function.
