Uncontrolled intake of vitamins is dangerous during a viral infection, including COVID-19, as they make the infection stronger, and do not speed up the healing process. Especially harmful is the use of vitamins without a doctor's prescription for people with diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), said therapist Lyudmila Lapa. This was reported on December 19 by TASS.
“Viruses love vitamins. If a person gets sick, then I believe that vitamins do not need to be used at all, since by doing so we support the disease, viruses also receive energy from vitamins. Of course, this also applies to the coronavirus,”she said.
Taking vitamins, the doctor noted, is an important element in the prevention of diseases and an important stage in the body's recovery after recovery. “Moscow is a pandemic region: there are few vitamins, there is no sun, therefore we recommend vitamin D and vitamin C, all this is useful,” said Lyudmila Lapa.
According to her, it is impossible to use vitamins immediately after recovery, you need to wait at least a week. “When we have already recovered, in 7-10 days, vitamins will be very good here, because it is very healthy to restore the immune system with the help of vitamins,” Lapa said.
In addition, she stressed that you should be especially careful with taking vitamins in case of gastrointestinal diseases, since vitamins can be converted into toxins in the body and destroy the immune system.
“If we have problems with the gastrointestinal tract - and this, in fact, is immunity, then we get an inadequate picture. We can get nothing from them, but we can get a lot, then vitamins become toxins. Their content in the blood increases, and this is already toxic to our body,”explained the therapist.
Uncontrolled intake of vitamins can lead to hypervitaminization, she said. “It is necessary to do it under the supervision of a doctor, because hypervitaminization is generally difficult to treat. Sometimes, if a person complains of poor health, for example, he has a lot of vitamin B, and it is not absorbed in the body. This is a very common occurrence,”added Lapa.
It was previously reported that a more severe course of coronavirus infection can cause vitamin D deficiency.
Professor Konstantin Severinov told the Parliamentary Gazette that new waves of coronavirus will continue one after another until the majority of the human population becomes resistant to the virus. Moreover, according to him, the vaccine may be ineffective due to COVID-19 mutations.
