People take for granted that they’ll need to stock up on the vitamins during the cold days of winter, but vitamins are also needed when the weather warms in spring, and people spend more and more time outdoors. Yes, it’s lovely out in spring, but there are still allergens, those sneaky colds and flu that were leftover from winter, days that are uncommonly hot and days that are surprisingly cold. People also need vitamins to support those bones and muscles that have been idle during the long winter and are now called into action for warm-weather sports. What are the best vitamins to take for the vicissitudes of spring?Vitamin C
Among the many other things it is good for, vitamin C is also an antihistamine. In other words, it can ease some of the symptoms of hay fever, especially when it’s taken with anti-allergy medications. But vitamin C’s first and most important job is to help the body produce collagen and repair damaged tissue, which is just the thing for folks who find themselves a bit out of shape in the face of springtime sports and activities. Since vitamin C is also an antioxidant, it helps protect the skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. When it’s taken in tandem with vitamin E, another antioxidant, it may cut down on the risk of sunburn.Vitamin E
Vitamin E has the added benefit of being able to be used topically. Putting it on the skin before slathering on sunscreen can help prevent sunburn. Like vitamin C, vitamin E can also reduce the unpleasantness of hay fever and even asthma.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D is not only a vitamin a person takes, it’s a vitamin a person makes. Indeed, it’s one of the few vitamins that the body makes. This is so unusual that some scientists believe that vitamin D isn’t so much a vitamin as a hormone. Whatever it is, it is made when the sun’s ultraviolet rays strike the skin. Deficiency can lead to bone pain, brittle bones and weak muscles, so getting the RDA of vitamin D is a great excuse to get out into the sun for a while.

Vitamin B6
Like the other B vitamins, vitamin B6 supports the health of the nervous system, but it’s also important for the maintenance of a strong immune system. It’s also needed for the functioning of many enzymes in the body help it make proteins and nucleic acids.

With the help of these vitamins, a person can enjoy spring to the fullest!
