The onset of winter and the pandemic are causing more and more people to worry extra about maintaining their immune system. Pharmacists from the country’s largest pharmacy chain, Eurovaistinė, say that customers usually choose vitamins C, D and fish oil for this purpose.
Jovita Juodsnukytė, pharmacist at Eurovaistinė, says that the most important vitamins for strengthening immunity, memory and eyes are now less noticed by customers. Vitamins C, D and fish oil are most often used to maintain immunity.
Their benefits are commented on by the pharmacist:
Vitamins C. He is almost always a customer favorite. Vitamin C comes in various forms – syrups, capsules, tablets. All forms of vitamin C are well absorbed by the body, but best – liquid forms, especially those that are liposomal. Capsules and long-acting vitamins are also absorbed very well, as they are gradually absorbed by the body, so it lasts longer.
Vitamin D. This substance is also very often used to maintain immunity. Like vitamin C, this substance can be used in a variety of forms. The same rule applies – the body absorbs liposomally best. Vitamin D can also be injected and this form is absorbed particularly quickly. Vitamin D spray is convenient to use, it can be stored in a handbag or car, it does not need to be added with water, so it can be used anywhere.
Fish oil. They are available in liquid or capsules at the pharmacy, and gums are available for children. Adults usually choose capsules because liquid fish oil is not very good, but it is important to note that it is liquid that is better absorbed, so it is recommended to choose this form of fish oil whenever possible.
The pharmacist also reminds that vitamins and supplements can not replace a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle, so you should not forget to eat a variety of foods, be physically active and often ventilate the premises.
