Winter Wellness from Boots

We know that staying well and healthy is at the top of everyone’s list this year, so that’s why Boots have created a Winter Wellness Guide packed full with advice and tips on how to stay well this winter. Here’s their full guide and a snippet of key information below;

 

  • Eat the rainbow – Eating a variety of fruit, vegetables and also herbs, spices, nuts and seeds can help maintain your immune system. Try eating foods rich in vitamins B6, B12, C and D and minerals like zinc and folic acid which works to help support your immune system.

 

  • Up your vitamin D – Did you know vitamin D is important for maintaining a healthy immune system? Everyone should take a daily supplement containing at least 10mcg of vitamin D between October and March, with some groups needing to take it all year round*.

 

  • Catch those Zzz – When we sleep our immune system releases cytokines to help the body fight inflammation and infection. If you wake up tired and spend the day dreaming about sleep, you’re probably not getting enough of it!

 

  • Prevention, prevention, prevention – Prevention is key an taking small steps such as regularly washing your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds and avoiding touching your face, nose and mouth can help protect you over the coming months.

 

Boots knows more people than ever are looking at increasing their general health over the winter, which is why they’ve launched a bespoke Winter Wellness Bundle to help keep you protected. It includes all of the wellbeing products you may need in your bathroom cabinet in one handy package for just £30, including our two wellness heroes of the season – Boots Dual Defence and NEW Boots Vitamin C + D tablets.
