Springtime vitamin needs determined by female physician

Dr. Irina Pisarova, a Russian nutritionist, said taking vitamin C and vitamin D is a must to prevent diseases that spread in the spring.

And the expert says: “Spring is the season of the year when many chronic diseases are exacerbated. As a result of a deficiency of certain vitamins, immunity weakens, and the number of sunny days usually decreases in winter, and not constantly at the beginning of spring. Therefore, the body of people suffering from chronic diseases needs a weakened immune system in prophylactic doses of vitamin D. Also vitamin C, since it is a powerful antioxidant.

And he adds: Fat-soluble vitamins A and E, which can be obtained from food or in the form of nutritional supplements, help overcome the period of chapped and dry lips. A group of B vitamins is also needed, as it strengthens the immune system, improves mood, affects calmness and the nervous system. But before taking these nutritional supplements, you should consult your doctor.

“We also shouldn’t forget about zinc, which is directly linked to the immune system and helps the body produce the active form of vitamin A,” she says.
