ARE TAKING VITAMINS THAT USEFUL AS IT SEEMS?

Vitamins, which are an important part of our daily nutrients, began to be taken in the form of supplements to strengthen our immunity against the virus during the coronavirus pandemic. So is it as useful as it seems to take so many vitamins? Can vitamins have as much harm as good for our body? Turkey Medicals member and Specialist Bio. gave information about the subject.

  • Vitamins are components that are naturally found in food and are taken into the human body. Each vitamin has different tasks in the body. Thanks to this, the body is protected from external influences.
    .
  • Vitamins are structures that are essential for maintaining normal vital functions, but cannot be synthesized by humans and animals themselves. This is where the problem arises. We need vitamins to continue our lives, but we can’t produce them ourselves.
    .
  • In this case, although we take these mandatory components with partial nutrients from the outside, care should be taken because consuming too many nutrients to get vitamins can cause overweight and continued deterioration of our health.
    .
  • Contrary to popular, vitamins have no caloric value. That’s why they don’t give energy. In other words, taking vitamin supplements does not cause weight gain in this sense.
    .
  • On the contrary, those who want to lose weight need to have a sufficient amount of vitamins in order for the energy metabolism to work properly and digestive functions to be taken absolute.
    .
  • Vitamins are divided into ‘Fat-Soluble’ (Vitamins A, D, E, K) and ‘Water-Soluble’ (vitamins B and C). With these properties, they have a structure that can be stored and not stored in the body.
    .
  • Water-soluble vitamins begin to break down in the kidney and are excreted in the urine. That is why these are the vitamins that are most often deficient in the body. Vitamins C and B, which must be taken daily and cannot be stored in the body, are the vitamins that allow the body to be most resistant to diseases. Especially during the pandemic period we are in, it is important for our immune system to work correctly and effectively.
    .
  • Vitamins A, D, E and K, on the other hand, are stored in fat-containing cells in the body. Very few of them are easily discarded. They usually accumulate in cells where fat is stored. They can reach a toxic level, so their intake into the body should be controlled.
    .
  • Each vitamin is active in a different area of the body, helping to protect cells. Each vitamin needs to be taken for the health of different organs. In terms of mental health as well as physical health, a person should take care of consuming Turkish foods rich in vitamins in order to maintain body health.
    .
  • Vitamin A helps to maintain skin health, preventing damage to tissues. It is also known as one of the most important vitamins for eye health. B vitamins especially provide protection of brain health and also have a depression-inhibiting effect. Vitamin B types should also be consumed for nail and hair health.
    .
  • People who are known to eat a vegetarian diet may have a vitamin B12 deficiency due to the fact that they do not consume animal food. That is why people who prefer a vegetarian diet are recommended vitamin B12 for preventive purposes and, of course, under the supervision of a doctor.
    .
  • Vitamin C is one of the vitamins that strengthens the immune system. It allows the body to resist diseases. It helps the body to be more resistant to flu and colds, especially in winter. Vitamin D is known as one of the most important vitamins for bone health. It helps maintain a person’s bone health at an advanced age.
    .
  • Vitamin E promotes the regeneration of cells in the body, preventing the wear and tear of organs. It also has a cancer-protective effect. It is also known as one of the extremely important vitamins for skin health and youth. Therefore, this property of vitamin E is used in cosmetic procedures in aesthetic clinics.
