Vitamins are a source of health in optimal doses (moderate doses of vitamins & excessive doses of vitamins) Second Part

The pharmaceutical industry offers users a large selection of vitamins and various supplements because they are a good source of health. Sometimes regular use of vitamins is necessary, and sometimes any excessive dose is harmful.

  1. Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) – vitamin B12 is needed for the formation of red blood cells. It is involved in the metabolism inside the cell, in the functioning of the nervous system and DNA synthesis. Most people with a normal diet get enough vitamin B12. Cobalamin is present in animal products (for example, one boiled egg contains 25% of the daily dose of vitamin B12). Vegetarians are recommended to take B12 in tablets because a plant-based diet does not contain B12.
  2. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – vitamin C regulates many biochemical reactions in the body. It participates in the synthesis of collagen, protects cells from the harmful effects of free radicals, is important for immunity and the maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. The organism is not capable
    independently synthesize or store vitamin C, so the supply of vitamin C needs to be constantly replenished. There is a lot of vitamin C in fruits, vegetables and berries. Just 50 grams of black currants, for example, will cover 100% of the daily dose of vitamin C.
  3. Vitamin D – vitamin D is needed to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body (bones, teeth and muscles). Vitamin D is important for the normal function of the immune and musculoskeletal system. It is present in fatty types of fish (salmon or tuna). The effect of sunlight is necessary for vitamin D to be produced in the body. That is why it is important and necessary to expose at least the face and hands to the sun every day.
  4. Vitamin E – a whole group of substances is hidden behind this vitamin. Their main role is the antioxidant effect on the body. They help maintain healthy skin and eyes, strengthen the immune system and fight infections. Vitamin E is in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds. A handful of ordinary sunflower seeds, for example, contains 50% of the daily dose of vitamin E.
  5. Vitamin K This vitamin helps the blood to clot, so it is important in wound healing. Vitamin K participates in protein synthesis and helps strengthen bones and capillaries. Scientific research says that vitamin K can slow down the growth of cancer cells. There are several types of vitamin K and all types are easily obtained from vegetables, vegetable oils, fruits and green vegetables. For example, a portion of spinach (or broccoli) has 100% coverage of the daily dose of vitamin K. The intestinal microbiota produces some vitamin K (vitamin K can be stored in the liver, so it is not necessary to add it to the diet daily).
