What vitamins do we need most in autumn?

In autumn, there are several key vitamins and nutrients that can help strengthen immunity and maintain health at a time when our immunity is more vulnerable to infection. Vitamin C is known for its effect on the immune system. It helps produce immune proteins and can reduce the risk of infection. Seasonal fruits such as oranges, tangerines, kiwis and apples are rich in vitamin C - be sure to get adequate levels in the fall! Plus, of course, vitamin D. In autumn, when the days get shorter and the sun is less available, vitamin D supplementation can be beneficial. This vitamin plays an important role in the functioning of the immune system.

The next step is to take care of vitamin A. This one is important for the health of the skin and mucous membranes, which are the body's first line of antiviral defense. It is found in orange and red-colored vegetables and fruits, such as carrots, pumpkins and red peppers. Vitamin E, on the other hand, is an antioxidant that helps protect cells from free radical damage. Sunflower seeds, almonds and olive oil are rich sources of vitamin E. And don't forget to get omega-3 fatty acids in your diet, which are found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel and tuna, have anti-inflammatory properties and can help maintain a healthy immune system!
