The Body & Mind of Frontline Workers

The Body & Mind of Frontline Workers

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we view healthcare, mental health, our relationships with those around us, and even our dietary considerations. While these effects are observed by all of humanity as we navigate our way through the pandemic, frontline workers remain under constant threat of declining physical and mental health.

Frontline workers are responsible for the operation of essential businesses and services that are critical for society to function. Grocery stores, doctors’ offices, educational institutions, among others, are public-facing sectors that can present exposure to the coronavirus. In conjunction with the stress of avoiding viral exposure, frontline workers are placed under enormous pressure to perform their tasks at the highest level, both efficiently and under tight deadlines. These environments can create physical and mental stress, leading to health problems, such as headaches, nausea, anxiety, high blood pressure, and depression. These effects take a heavy toll on your immune system and can lead to other health implications.

How can a frontline worker reinforce their immune system?

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has created an increased awareness of the importance of a healthy body, it is important to understand that improving your health is a long-term commitment. Alongside a healthy diet and proper hygiene, vitamin supplementation plays an important role in maintaining both mental and bodily health. Proper supplementation is imperative for frontline workers, especially in strenuous environments.


C6.ca stocks a plethora of essential vitamins that aid in boosting body and immune function. Available in capsule, chewable and gummy forms, our collection of vitamins can be taken with ease, even while working on the frontlines. While the variety of options of vitamins may seem overwhelming, vitamin C and D are among the most popular and are generally recommended for overall health. Vitamin C and D deficiencies are partly responsible for impaired immunity and can lead to susceptibility to infections caused by viruses. While vitamin C is known to improve immune cell function, vitamin D, according to the Harvard T.H Chan School of Medicine, boosts the immune cells’ production of microbe-fighting proteins.

The decline of mental health.

Frontline workers are susceptible to mental health decline, particularly through stress and fatigue. The decrease in social activity caused by regional lockdowns, long work hours, and the fear of contracting illnesses at work can negatively affect even the strongest minds. This said, working the frontlines throughout the course of the pandemic can be incredibly stress-inducing. Choosing the right vitamin to supplement the brain should not be.

Vitamin B12 plays an important role in brain function and development of brain and nerve cells. Vitamin B12 deficiency can be attributed to memory loss, anxiety, depression and weakness & fatigue. Are you a frontline worker? Consider supplementing vitamin B12 into your body through our collection of well-known brands.

While nothing can completely remove the stress, fears, and anxiety caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring your body and mind are bolstered by a healthy diet and vitamin supplementation will improve and maintain your overall health. To all frontline workers who have worked exceptionally hard and persevered through these difficult times – thank you.
