Now the cold weather has arrived and, along with it, infections, it’s time to look after ourselves more than ever to stop ourselves from getting ill. That’s why it’s important to wrap up warm, stay well hydrated, do regular exercise and eat healthily, providing all of the nutrients needed to ensure our immune system can fight and prevent infections.
Vitamin C is one of those essential active ingredients that boosts the defences thanks to its antioxidant properties.
In this article, we suggest a fun and different recipe using our Vitamin C Elements to boost the immune system at this time of year.
