If ever there was a time to get your immune system into fighting shape, it’s during a pandemic in the heart of winter. Research proves what we’ve been told over and over: a healthy, balanced diet provides the nutrients we need to fend off colds and viruses, and anything we’re not getting from our food can and should be supplemented with vitamins, minerals and herbs.
If your medicine cabinet is sorely lacking in fortifying supplements, right now is the time to stock up. Amazon’s Daily Deal today includes price drops on vitamin D and C, turmeric, elderberry and more by Viva Naturals, a brand that’s earned thousands of five-star reviews from health-conscious customers.

It’s the one vitamin pretty much all health experts agree should be in your immune-function arsenal. Vitamin D is a powerhouse when it comes to helping your body fight off illnesses — especially respiratory infections, according to recent research. Viva Naturals Vitamin D3 5000 are high-potency pills that pair your daily dose of this “sunshine vitamin” with wholesome coconut oil, which makes it easier for your body to absorb. Vitamin D3 gives your skin, teeth, bones and muscles a boost too.
Customers say they’re convenient, too. “The softgels are small, slightly soft, and easily go down with a little liquid (if you drink any when taking it). You get enough softgels to last you just under a full year.”

Viva Naturals Elderberry, Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin D 5000 IU (120 Capsules)
This powerhouse supplement packs it all in: 5000 IUs of vitamin D along with a few other immune-boosing superstars. One is vitamin C, which supports cellular function that makes the immune system strong, according to the National Institutes of Health (and maybe every doctor you speak to). Elderberry and zinc are both time-honored antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that support immune function. No wonder this one has more than 18,000 stellar ratings.
“This is the ultimate wellness formula,” wrote one fan. “Not only does this product help with cold and flu, the vitamins and extracts provide benefits for digestion (ginger), bone health (vitamin D) and skin (zinc). Do your homework - this is truly a great product and I definitely won’t go without it!”

The spice turmeric — and specifically a component within it called curcumin — is a powerful ingredient for fighting off colds, viruses and infections. It’s popular for its anti-inflammatory properties, but it also supports cellular function. It’s believed that turmeric and curcumin’s ability to strengthen the immune system also helps it ease ailments like arthritis, allergies, heart disease and diabetes. The black pepper in these Viva Naturals supplements aids in absorption.
One happy customer notes that Viva Naturals Organic Turmeric Curcumin supplements was a feel-good vitamin that helped ease pain: “I began taking this product for my shoulder and back pain from a motor vehicle accident. By the time I got about a week or so into taking it, I noticed that not only had my shoulder and back pain gotten noticeably better, but I began to notice that my energy level and seasonal depression were getting better. I don't remember ever feeling this good on a day-to-day basis, since the summer!”
