We live in the Midwest, where heat and humidity go together like peanut butter and jelly in the summer. The days are longer, the nights are shorter, and the activity calendar is PACKED. As my Mom used to say, summers can leave you feeling like you can’t catch yourself coming or going. Which is to say, wow, I have a lot to do and little time to do it. I have a tween and two teens I have to keep up with. More than ever, it’s important to take care of my own health. This means I have plenty of reasons to take nutritional supplements, I thought I’d share my essential vitamins and minerals for summer so you can keep up, too.
Essential Vitamins and Minerals for Summer
When the season changes, it’s a good time to assess whether other things need to change, too. While you’re determining what needs to change in your schedule, your wardrobe, and your habits, be sure to consider your vitamin and supplement routine. This is important because what our body needs can change as a result of both our internal and external environments. Using the right vitamins and minerals can help maintain optimal health during hot weather months. Check out these essential summer supplements.
Vitamin B12 & B6
B vitamins are essential for summer. Vitamin B12 helps support healthy energy so you can keep up with everyone. Vitamin B6 supports a healthy nervous system and immune system. Folic acid is often paired with B vitamins because it helps support healthy cell growth and function.
Vitamin D3 helps build and maintain healthy bones because it helps absorb calcium. It may also support the immune system and other functions. One might think summertime and sunshine mean you can skip the Vitamin D3 supplements, but by using sunscreen to block the sun’s harmful rays, you may also be limiting the amount of vitamin D you can produce. And if you live in an area with high humidity, like I do, exposure to sunlight in summer can be low too because it feels like the atmosphere sits on you when you walk outdoors.
Vitamin C helps support a healthy immune system and also helps with the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for health and your body can’t make it, so you must get it through diet or supplements.
Vitamin A is important for helping your body’s natural defense against illness and infection work properly. It can also support healthy vision.
Zinc is a trace mineral. Trace minerals are those that the body only needs small amounts of but are absolutely essential. Zinc supports the healthy growth of cells, supports a healthy immune system, and supports the body in healing damaged tissues. Zinc also plays an important role in the senses of smell and taste.
Why Superior Source Vitamins
Ron Beckenfeld started Superior Source MicroLingual® in 1998 after his Dad developed Parkinson’s. His Dad developed difficulty swallowing as a result of his Parkinson’s disease. This led to his Dad asking him why he couldn’t take vitamins that were small and dissolved like his nitroglycerin tabs. Ron Beckenfeld developed the B-12 MicroLingual quick-dissolving tablet first. He has continued to create new products and now offers over 70 vitamins and supplements to aid the quest for a healthy lifestyle.
Superior Source Vitamins are MicroLingual® – “Under the Tongue Technology” that works fast, as they are quickly absorbed into the body, dissolving in seconds – NO pills to swallow or water needed!
Talk about easy! By swallowing supplements, as much as 50% of the potency is lost in the high-acid environment of the stomach. Only clean ingredients – just the way nature intended! They have NO Fillers, Preservatives, Chemicals, Dyes, or Excessive Binders.
Superior Source wants to help one lucky winner maximize their summer health with an essential summer Vitamin 5-Pack (a $75 value) including one each of their B12/B6, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, and ZincPlus supplements.
