Vitamins must be supplied to the human body so that it can store them. Here are 3 classics for you to choose from:

Vitamin C
The best known vitamin for strengthening the immune system is vitamin C. However, it is not necessary to overdose it, because it does not bring more. Deficiency leads to reduced resistance to pathogens. Just be sure to regularly eat citrus fruits (orange, grapefruit, clementine, tangerine), bell peppers, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, pineapple, kiwis, cauliflower, dark leafy greens, cabbage, and tomatoes, all of which are good sources of vitamin C.

B vitamins
Especially vitamin B6, folic acid and vitamin B12 contribute to a well-functioning immune system. Taking too little can compromise immunity and increase susceptibility to infection. Vitamin B6 is found mainly in wild salmon, tuna, turkey, chicken, beef, potatoes, sunflower seeds, spinach and bananas.

Vitamin D
The “sunshine vitamin” plays an important role in building and maintaining healthy bones as well as stabilizing the immune system, as the human body is littered with vitamin D receptors throughout. Exposure to sunlight is the best way to increase vitamin D levels. It can also be found in foods such as fatty fish (wild salmon, sardines, mackerel), egg yolks and mushrooms.
