☀️Essentials for a Healthy Spring Transition

1. Vitamin D

Despite the approaching spring, Vitamin D remains essential for those in less sunny locales. This "sunshine vitamin" supports the maintenance of bones and teeth, normal muscle function,  immune function, and inflammation response. For those not getting enough sun exposure, supplements are helpful, but foods like fatty fish, egg yolks, and fortified foods also provide Vitamin D.  

2. Probiotics

Probiotics gain particular popularity this time of the year as individuals seek to rejuvenate and rebalance their health with the transition from winter to spring. During the colder months, people often experience disruptions in their diet and exercise routines, potentially leading to digestive issues and weakened immune systems. Probiotics, known for their ability to support a healthy gut microbiome, become a key focus. Probiotics can be found in supplements and fermented foods like yogurt, bread, kefir, sauerkraut, and kombucha.

3. Vitamin C

With its immune-supporting power, Vitamin C is essential as we move from winter to spring. This vitamin is known for its contribution to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, collagen formation, maintenance of the normal function of the immune system, blood vessels and more!  Beyond supplements, citrus fruits, strawberries, bell peppers, and dark leafy greens are excellent sources of Vitamin C.

4. Magnesium

Magnesium's popularity in March stems from its vital role in supporting the body's springtime renewal. This essential mineral enhances psychological well-being, crucial for shaking off winter's gloom. It maintains electrolyte balance and aids in muscle function, preparing the body for increased spring activity. Magnesium also support energy metabolism and reduces fatigue, revitalising individuals as they transition into longer, more active days. In essence, magnesium is key to refreshing both mind and body, making it a go-to supplement for embracing the renewed energy of spring. Magnesium rich foods include almonds, cashews, edamame, yogurt, spinach, avocado, and chocolate.

Seasonal Foods 🍽️

Embracing seasonal foods like asparagus, artichokes, and peas can support your health with fresh, nutrient-rich options. These spring favourites offer a variety of vitamins and minerals and are perfect for refreshing your diet.

🌿Nurture your body with Herbs

Spring herbs not only add flavour to dishes but also provide health benefits. Here are some of our favourites. 

1. Parsley

Emerging in early spring, parsley is more than just a garnish. Rich in vitamins A, C, and K, therefore supports a healthy immune function, bone health, and eye health. Its fresh, clean taste makes it a perfect addition to spring dishes.

2. Chives

Chives start sprouting as the weather warms. They are rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin K, which is important for bone health. Their mild onion flavor enhances salads, soups, and egg dishes.

3. Dandelion

Often considered a weed, dandelion greens are edible and nutritious, rich in calcium, folate, iron, potassium, and vitamins A and C.

4. Nettle

Stinging nettle emerges early in March. When cooked or processed into tea or supplements, it loses its sting and becomes a powerhouse of nutrients, including linolenic acid, quercetin, iron, magnesium, and vitamin C.

5. Sorrel

Sorrel, with its tangy, lemony flavour, starts to appear in March. It's high in magnesium, potassium and vitamins A and C, making it great to support your  immune system and adding a fresh taste to spring meals.
March, with its promise of renewal and growth, offers an ideal backdrop for integrating these supplements into our wellness routines. 
While integrating supplements, foods, and herbs into your routine can offer numerous health benefits, it's crucial to tailor your choices to your individual needs and consult with a healthcare professional. Each body is unique, and what works well for one person may not be suitable for another.
