Zinc helps keep your immune system strong and plays many roles in our bodies. Vital for proper healing process and collagen synthesis, the anti-inflammatory properties are useful against skin irritations. During the summer your skin suffers much more from the effects of sun exposure and your hair can dehydrate and break more easily than usual.
POWER ZINC can reduce oxidative stress, helping eliminate some harmful effects of the sun on your body, while keeping your hair and skin super healthy!
2- VITAMIN D
Vitamin D deficiency is higher during the winter because of reduced exposure to sunlight. But vitamin D deficiencies are shockingly common in the United States. As work has shifted to offices, people don’t get the necessary sun exposure.
Sunscreen, skin pigmentation and aging can also affect vitamin D production. That’s why it is so important to continue supplementing with vitamin D even in summer! Vitamin D deficiency can impact your mood and has been linked to breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, heart disease, depression, weight gain, and osteoporosis.
Our Vitamin D5000 + K1 & K2 is the Perfect Combo: Vitamin K is used to enhance the metabolism of Vitamin D and guides calcium to the bones.
3- VITAMIN E
With some amazing anti-inflammatory properties, vitamin E protects your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. Working as a moisturiser, it can help treat chapped, dry lips and may lessen the likelihood of skin damage. UV light and sun exposure reduce vitamin E levels in the skin, which also decreases with age.
Supplementing vitamin E will not only help you recover from a minor sunburn faster, but it will act as an antioxidant, helping your liver and the rest of your body eliminate toxins. Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and keeps your skin healthy.
4- VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is an ideal supplement to take in the summertime! As we are most exposed to UV light, this natural antioxidant enhances collagen production in the skin, protecting it from sun damage. The hot weather can lead to fatigue, skin irritation, stress, and make one more prone to germs. Vitamin C is vital to the function of white blood cells, fighting infections, strengthening the immune system, and improving energy.
Vital C 1,000 from Akasha Naturals is a patented vitamin C formula designed to support your immune system, improve the uptake of the vitamin by white blood cells, and is a strong source of antioxidants.
While summer is the best time for barbecues, picnics and eating outside, it doesn’t always include the healthiest food and drink options. Hot and humid weather also creates the perfect conditions for bacteria to grow. In this scenario, promoting a healthy microbiome is crucial in summertime.
