Most severe flu epidemics typically fall on the autumn period. Children’s systems are not able to properly resist all bacteria, viruses, or even usual hypothermia. As a result, they are exposed to various seasonal diseases such as acute respiratory disease, tonsillitis, pharyngitis, bronchitis, laryngitis, tracheitis. Wet weather, reduced daylight hours, and insufficient ultraviolet exposure invariably result in the autumn blues. For this reason, doctors report a marked incidence increase for neuroses, depressions, and psychoses in the autumn period. Additionally, dermatoses are mostly caused by hypothermia and a common cold, coupled with the overall reduced immunity which is so characteristic to the season.
In order to protect skin from diseases, help cope with depression, and strengthen the immune system, it is essential for children to start taking vitamins and microelements already in late summer, with special focus on magnesium, potassium, and zinc.
