Holly Zoccolan, a healthy lifestyle and nutrition coach, spoke about winter nutrition and the most important dietary supplements.
“During the winter months, I recommend taking vitamin D, zinc and vitamin C. Vitamin D is a nutrient derived from sunlight. In the winter months, when we get less sunlight, it is better to take supplements to prevent deficiency.”
- Foods containing vitamin D
- Fatty fish
- Meat offal
- Egg yolks
The expert also noted the importance of zinc. Zinc is important in winter because it helps to shorten the duration of a cold. Vitamin C also helps prevent colds and promotes the restoration of body tissues.
Before using supplements, a doctor’s consultation is necessary.
