Your immune system is your best defence

VITAMINS AND MINERALS

They are essential to keep the immune system functioning correctly

Our bodies are unable to make them, so we need to get them from food or food supplements.

VITAMINS

Vitamin is a word that comes from the Latin word ‘vita’ meaning ‘life’.
Vitamins are essential micronutrients for life and are crucial to keeping our physiological functions working perfectly.

MINERALS

Minerals are natural, non-organic elements. These are divided into macrominerals and trace elements.
Human beings need them to stay healthy and support bone formation, control heart rhythm and hormone production.

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is renowned for boosting the normal functioning of the immune system. It is the most powerful hydrosoluble antioxidant that exists. It neutralises free radicals (which may occur in case of inflammation) and prevents oxidative damage. It also encourages the production of collagen, a protein needed to heal wounds. It also helps our bodies to absorb the iron contained in plant-based foods.

Examples of foods high in vitamin C:

Orange, pepper, broccoli, kiwi, mango and pineapple.
