What Supplements Should I Take?

From bolstering your immune system to boosting concentration, supplements are serious game-changers when it comes to supporting your body. Come winter we are naturally more susceptible to coughs, colds and flu, so it’s a good idea to have a helping hand that will ward off illness. With such a large variety to choose from it can be hard to know what supplement is right for you. Ideally, you should be consuming more than one (hence why multivitamins are so successful) as a combination will better provide you with the essential vitamins you need. So, without further ado, allow us to introduce you to some rather important vitamins. Read up on each one, decide what you need most, then mix and match to get the most benefits. 


Taking the top spot for immune-boosting power, Solgar Zinc Picolinate 22 MG Tablets are vital if you’re worried about feeling under the weather this winter. Studies show that taking a daily zinc supplement can help increase your immune system, improve cell function and reduce oxidative stress. Because of this, they’re also ace at healing wounds and reducing the risk of infections. When applied topically, zinc has been found to treat inflammatory skin conditions like acne due to its ability to suppress the growth of bacteria.

Skin, Hair and Nails

Solar Skin Hair & Nails contains a blend of essential beauty nutrients chosen for their ability to aid the health of your skin, hair and nails. Collagen boosting vitamin C supports the skin’s elasticity, structure and prevents all signs of premature ageing. Copper contributes to normal pigment production in the skin, assisting with uneven skin tone. Finally, Zinc and silica from red algae protect cells from oxidative stress.


If you are looking to increase the length of your hair, be sure to get some of Solgar’s Biotin 300 mg Tablets. Known for its amazing ability to promote hair growth, Biotin is a B vitamin found in eggs, nuts and milk. It’s water-soluble and so doesn’t get stored in your body, but if you are consuming a well rounded, healthy diet you should be getting enough. As well as improving the hair on your head, biotin keeps nails strong and prevents them from peeling and splitting. It also contributes to optimum skin health and is particularly important for those who are pregnant and breastfeeding. 

Vitamin A

Most commonly known in the skincare world as retinol, vitamin A has multiple benefits for the body, including eye health, cell growth and normal iron metabolism. It occurs naturally in animal products, like oily fish, eggs and dairy, as well as vegetables and fruit. Maintain optimal levels by taking a daily dose of Solgar’s Dry Vitamin A 5000 IU Tablets. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians, one serving supplies 5000 IU of vitamin A which contributes to overall skin health and reduces signs of ageing. It also helps prevent blemishes by aiding skin immunity and increasing healing. 


Collagen is a protein most predominately found in our skin bones and ligaments. As we age, the levels of collagen naturally deplete, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and reduced skin elasticity. Popping one of Solgar’s Collagen Hyaluronic Acid Complex Tablets each day ensures you are replenishing those dwindling levels with BioCell Collagen, an easily absorbable form of collagen with hyaluronic acid. Here for the anti-wrinkle powers? Be sure to keep taking them for some time to reap the full rewards. In a few months you’ll notice smoother, firmer, more even skin. 

Gentle Iron

Those consuming a balanced diet of red meat, dairy, eggs and leafy greens should already be getting enough of this vital vit. However, those consuming restricted diets like vegans and vegetarians will struggle to get enough through their food alone. That is where Solgar Gentle Iron (Iron Bisglycinate) 20mg Vegetable Capsules come in. Feelings of excessive fatigue and tiredness are signs of an iron deficiency. Taking these supplements daily will help boost energy levels and reduce exhaustion, as well as supporting your immune system. 

Vitamin C

Antioxidant-rich vitamin C plays a role in over 300 bodily functions, most importantly, collagen maintenance, iron absorption and protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals. Despite this, the human body cannot create its own vitamin C, so taking a supplement is extremely beneficial. Solgar’s Vitamin C 500 MG Vegetable Capsules can improve everything from energy levels to your immune system. Its effects on skin are also pretty impressive. Taken daily, vitamin C promotes vitamin E and collagen production leading to a plumper, more youthful looking complexion.
