Look good feel great and have stronger immunity with vitamins from Watsons

Overall wellness is more than just drinking vitamins and supplements as part of your daily, but so is taking a good diet, 6-8 hours of sleep, physical activity, good hygiene and drinking the right vitamins are some of the best ways to strengthen our immune system. Vitamins are essential to good health and wellness, especially in this pandemic. How do we know which vitamins are right for us?

Different vitamins work in different ways. Vitamin C, which is water soluble, can be taken in recommended amounts at any time of the day. Also water soluble are B vitamins, which can be taken any time during the day. On the other hand, fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K dissolve in oil and need to be taken with meals for enhanced absorption. Iron supplements are okay for an empty stomach but not taken with calcium. As for minerals, don't drink calcium, zinc or magnesium supplements at the same time. It's best to have them with meals.

Watsons makes vitamins and minerals accessible to Filipinos in their 800+ stores nationwide and through their online channels. Even during lockdowns and quarantines, most Watsons branches are open to serve consumers. Shop now at any of Watsons 800+ stores nationwide (, online via ( or mobile app
( or via call & delivery service (

Here are some tips from Watsons on how to stay healthy while we're still facing a global health crisis:

Take your Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an antioxidant and this can help decrease inflammation, which may improve your immune system. Studies have also shown that Vitamin C helps you recover faster from the common cold. Berocca and Watsons Vitamin C Vitamin E Glutathione Effervescent Tablets are good sources of Vitamin C.

The importance of zinc

The body doesn't produce zinc so you should get it from vitamins and supplements. Zinc helps with wound healing and growth and development and in improving immune function, among others. Conzace has vitamins A, C, E and zinc to help improve the body's resistance against illness and infections. Those with existing liver problems could be risk for complications if they are infected with COVID-19. Take care of your liver with Essentiale Forte, which provides nutritional support for the management of damaged liver.

If you workout a lot, you need vitamin that will keep up with you.

Propan Fit helps fight mental and physical fatigue, improves immunity and for total health and nutritional
support. Get all your vitamins from Watsons, where wellness is just a tap or a click away. It's never too late or too early to start taking care of yourself to look good feel great. Taking vitamins is that extra step you need to be healthy!
