Work and life stress can often end up leaving you feeling burned out, and in the dreary winter season, this feeling can be amplified. But don't fret: there is something simple you can do to help your immune system, energy and general wellbeing during winter - take some supplements! Even if you manage to eat all of your 5-a-day and live well, you still may not be getting all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals needed to help keep you on top form. So, stock up on our five recommended supplements to help support your body when it needs that extra little help...
A multivitamin will not only help to maintain your energy levels¹ throughout one of the most draining seasons of the year, but it'll also help to support your immune system² so you don't get struck down with a pesky cold. Our favourite multivitamin? Solgar® Omnium®, which contains a whopping 37-active ingredients - sure to keep those dreaded winter sniffles at bay² during these winter months.
Incorporating a food supplement into your diet can help support a healthy immune system.³ With its unique combination of Ester-C®, Vitamin D3 and Copper, Solgar®’s Beta Glucan and Elderberry Immune Complex is the perfect addition to help your body through those illness-prone months³. It also contains Elderberry Concentrate which is the equivalent of 4132 mg of elderberry fruit.

It's recommended that you consume at least two portions of fish a week (one being oily fish) to contribute to a healthy diet. But, we know how hard this can be - especially if you're not a fan of fish! Opt to take the Solgar® Triple-Strength Omega-3 supplement to help support brain⁴ and heart⁵ health.
Ever find yourself feeling extra tired during winter? Then you'll be pleased to know that a Vitamin B-Complex supplement (like the Solgar® Megasorb Vitamin B-Complex) can help reduce tiredness and fatigue.⁶ How? Well, with its unique high potency, maximum absorption formula containing five B-Vitamins, this supplement supports metabolism, which turns the food you eat into energy.⁷
Curcumin is an extract found in the well-known spice turmeric, but our bodies find it hard to digest. We recommend taking the Solgar® Full Spectrum Curcumin, as this has 185x greater bioavailability that standard turmeric alone, which means better and faster absorption.
