With the current situation, it's now more important than ever to take good care of yourself and stay healthy
Besides doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home and following all the SOPs, it's also important to keep yourself in good health. This includes doing things like having balanced, nutritious meals and finding ways to stay active even while at home.
At the same time, many are choosing to give their immune systems an added boost with vitamins and supplements. If you are doing so, please do keep in mind that these things are supposed to be taken in addition to your usual food diet, not as a replacement.
And of course, if you have any questions about what kind of supplements to take, you can always ask a medical professional.
