Winter may take a toll on your immunity system and therefore to prevent common cold and viruses to enter your body, it’s essential for you to take special care. Holistic Nutritionist and founder of Diet Podium Shikha Mahajan shared some tips to help to gear up your body with the changing season for immunity.

Spend time in the sun

As long as the weather allows, spend as much time outside under the sun. Vitamin D plays a huge role in keeping your defense system strong. It is important that you have both an innate immune response that provides an instant and front line of defense, but you also have protection against an overreaction by the immune system.


The daily amount of vitamin D you need depends largely on your age. Adults aged 19 to 70 must get 600 IU per day, while adults 71 and older should look to get 800 IU per day. Most people can get the daily amount through sun exposure.
