Vitamin increasingly becomes one of the pursuits of a healthy lifestyle, but how to correctly add to it? First we should understand the relationship of the variety of vitamins and between vitamins and other nutrients. From a medical point of view, vitamin supplements are basically two main points: First, as needed, the second is to master the balance.
In fact, vitamin also needs partners. Moreover, sources of vitamins are not limited to fresh food, including those colorful health care products on the counter. Among some of these health care products, some are natural food extracts, contains many nutrients; plenty of them are the mixtures of vitamins and related nutrients; while some are chemical synthesis products, which contain only one or several vitamins.
Vitamin E and fat is gluey. Vitamin E and fat are not easily able to distinguish, like all the fat-soluble vitamins (such as vitamins A, D, K, etc.), only when the fat exist, we can effectively absorb the Vitamin E into the body. Therefore, having a meal is the best time to take fat-soluble vitamins.
In addition, Vitamin C is no longer alone with iron. As the chemical synthesis of natural products do not exist complex ingredients, vitamin C alone was at first difficult to be taken full advantage by the human body. When vitamin C meet iron, it found its own merits, that is, to make iron more easily absorbed by the body, which is a good thing to people with iron deficiency.
Besides, Zinc is the woman behind Vitamin A. Behind every successful man, there is always a woman to support him. In the vitamin world, there is no exception. Vitamin A in the treatment of night blindness is a successful case. In fact, it was supported by metallic element zinc silently. If the body lacks of zinc, vitamin A is difficult to transfer from the circulating blood to cells to play a role. Of course, in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia, vitamin A can play a supporting role.
As the various nutrients can be interdependence between each other, while a vitamin supplement alone in most cases is more harm than good. Especially long-term supplement with a vitamin, it is easy to have additive effect on the food sources of nutrition, resulting in the risk of a single vitamin overdose. In clinical practice, taking a vitamin is used to treat most appropriate nutritional deficiency diseases. Therefore, it is the best to pre-listen to a doctor or nutritionist’s advice before eating vitamin.
