With the onset of winter and the pandemic, more and more people are worried about maintaining their immune system. Pharmacists from the main pharmaceutical chain in the country Eurovaistinė say that customers usually choose vitamin C, D and fish oil.
Jovita Juodsnukytė, a pharmacist at Eurovaistinė, says that today the most important vitamins for strengthening immunity, memory and eyesight are given less attention by customers. Vitamins C, D and fish oil are mostly used to maintain immunity.
The pharmacist comments on their benefits:
C. vitamins It’s almost always a customer favorite. Vitamin C is available in many forms: in syrups, in capsules, in pills. All types of vitamin C are well absorbed by the body, but the best – liquid forms, especially those that are liposomal. Capsules and long-acting vitamins are also very well absorbed, as the body gradually absorbs them, so it lasts longer.
Vitamin D.. This substance is very often used to maintain immunity. Like vitamin C, this substance can be used in many ways. The same rule applies: the body absorbs the best liposome. Vitamin D can also be sprayed, which is especially quickly absorbed. Vitamin D spray is suitable for use, it can be stored in a bag or car, it does not need to add water, so it can be used anywhere.
Fish oil. They are available in pharmacies in liquid or capsules, and chewing gum for children. Adults tend to choose capsules because liquid fish oil is not very sweet, but it is important that it is a liquid that is better absorbed, so it is recommended to choose this type of fish oil whenever possible.
The pharmacist reminded us that vitamins and dietary supplements cannot replace a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle; so don’t forget to eat a variety of foods, be physically active, and often ventilate the premises.
