While the COVID vaccine reduces the risk of infection, it’s still best to take small steps in preventing severe illness – and one of them is practicing self-care, be it in the form of mental health care, social self-care, emotional self-care, and physical self-care.

Good thing, some experts have provided us with some tips to boost our immune system – and best executed with some extra help like intake of vitamins and supplements.

In this article, we’ll discuss more information on mental health, self-care, and share with you an interesting find on Shopee too!

Increasing numbers of mental health issues

Health experts have seen an increased level of anxiety and depression during the pandemic. In a report posted by WHO, bereavement, isolation, loss of income, and fear are triggering mental health conditions. In addition to their report, there are over 60% reported disruptions to mental health services for vulnerable people, including children and adolescents (72%), older adults (70%), and women requiring antenatal or postnatal services (61%). In a separate report by, symptoms of anxiety disorder and depressive disorder increased considerably as well in the United States during April–June of 2020.

Here in the Philippines, suicide cases spiked by 25.7% in 2020 compared to the previous year. If this is the data released, then we should all be alarmed and should be more concerned with our mental health too.

Practicing self-care

Not all of us have the financial means to consult a psychiatrist, however, there are centers offering online psychological services. Check out the full list here.

WHO also provided some tips on how to look after our mental health:

  • Going to bed early
  • Accept help from others
  • Read a new book
  • Learn a new hobby
  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Minimizing screen time and social media usage
  • Exercise regularly
  • Keep in touch with people who care for you
  • Enjoy staycations

Aside from taking care of your mental health, other forms of self-care include organizing your closet, reading a book, virtual chat with friends, learning a new instrument, going to the groceries, and taking vitamins and other effective health supplements.

Vitamins and Supplements

But first, let’s do our research on vitamins and health supplements. What comes to mind when you hear/read these words?

Recently, we came across this brand called Puritan’s Pride. They offer over 100+ vitamins and supplements that address every lifestyle. Aside from beauty and skin products, they also offer those that target major health concerns like Immune Health, Heart Health, Health, Gut Health, Sleep Health, General Health, and more.

Highly-Recommended Supplements from Puritan’s Pride

When I hear the word self-care, having a good sleep first comes to mind. Since most of us are working from home, having a restful sleep is essential to have the energy to work the morning after in a good mood and great concentration.

Now, with hours of browsing the internet, I’ve learned that the Melatonin 3 mg from Puritan’s Pride is not only an effective natural sleep aid but helps those experiencing insomnia. If you’re low in energy, then you should take one tablet before bedtime, as this makes you drowsy after intake. Each bottle of Puritan’s Pride Magnesium Citrate contains 90 coated caplets with 200 mg of magnesium each. However, if you’re pregnant or you have an underlying health condition, make sure to consult your doctor first.

Another product I find amusing at Puritan’s Pride is the Magnesium Citrate. Did you know that Magnesium Citrate acts as a natural laxative? This is why most people use this at higher doses to treat constipation.

Another favorite from the brand is C-500mg. If you want to boost your immune system, improve antioxidant health, skincare, and cardiovascular (heart) system, then this is the perfect find. It’s infused with Citrus Bioflavonoids and Rose Hips which enhance Vitamin C absorption. Isn’t it convenient? A vitamin that supports healthy skin and immune health.

Where to buy

You can buy both the Headspace Pack Melatonin 3 mg + Magnesium Citrate at the official Shopee store for Php 1,024. For the Immunity Pack B Vitamin C 500mg + Zinc 50mg + Vitamin D3 400iu Puritan’s Pride, it’s priced at Php 1,156. Definitely worth the value.

Take care of your health now and have Puritan’s Pride a try.
