Give your body a fighting chance this winter.

Sometimes the best advice isn’t new.

In our case, we posted it last December.

It is titled, Nine Ways to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

That post covered a variety of immune system health tips that are even more relevant today.

Since we posted that blog, one more vitamin and another mineral got a lot of attention this year: vitamin D and zinc.

Vitamin D promotes immune system health, supports the nervous system and provides other health benefits. You can get vitamin D from salmon, herring and sardines, cod liver oil, egg yolks, mushrooms and many other foods.

If you prefer to get your vitamin D from a supplement, there are a variety to choose from.

Zinc is a mineral that also promotes immune system health. You will find this essential mineral in a variety of foods, including red meat, shellfish, poultry, legumes, whole grains and kale.

There are also many zinc options, including lozenges.

Stay healthy.
