Herbaland’s Top 5 Picks: The Summer Vitamins You NEED

 

Vitamin D

This one may come as a surprise to you as sun exposure increases throughout the summer, but even that isn’t truly enough to meet our body’s needs! As you may know, our bodies can produce its own vitamin D with proper exposure to sunlight, however, it is difficult for us to get a sufficient amount because our bodies need to be fully exposed to the sunshine without sunscreen during peak hours of day. Most people aren’t able to achieve this on a consistent basis, plus there are a handful of risks to exposing yourself in the sun without protection. Therefore, you should continue to use vitamin D through the summer and all year long.

Summer equals warmer weather, which means you’re sweating more and therefore losing more water and precious minerals like: calcium, potassium and magnesium increasing your risk of dehydration.

 

 

  

Vitamin A, C & E

These antioxidant rich vitamins we like to call “the ACE’s” will help to increase immunity, organ function, protect and repair your skin from sun damage throughout the hot summer months.

 

Vitamin A:

According to multiple studies daily intake of this vitamin can help reduce your chances of developing skin cancer. Additionally, it contributes to the maintenance of healthy skin, plus can prevent irreversible vision damage caused by the sun. As this nutrient is a part of the fat-soluble family, it can easily penetrate the skin giving us a little added protection from the sun!

Vitamin C:

We know using this nutrient is the gold standard during cold and flu season, but here’s a fun fact: summer is the second leading time for increased risk of sinus infections and rhinitis, therefore properly supplementing will help you take the right preventative measures. Not only is summer a common season to catch upper respiratory infections, but increased outdoor activity also raises your exposure to ultraviolet light and air pollution which are both perpetrators of free radicals, fortunately vitamin C helps to protect against this damage due to its vast antioxidant properties and it may also prevent heat stroke and rash during these warmer months.

Vitamin E:

Protect and restore your skin from the negative effects of the sun. This vitamin can enhance collagen production, therefore encouraging skin rejuvenation and improving elasticity. Give your skin exactly what it needs, especially for those scorching hot summer days!

      What to use: You can find the ACE vitamins and so much more in our Adult Multivitamin Gummies!

       By incorporating these supplements into your daily summer regime will help to protect yourself and your skin against the damaging effects of the sun while keeping you hydrated with the addition of sunscreen and lots of water!
