Spring vitamin season: how best to take and where to buy

After the winter, tired of cloudy weather and seasonal illnesses, our body needs a lot of vitamins to regain strength and get a new boost of energy.

In this article, we have prepared useful information for you on what vitamins are, how to take them best, and where to buy them on special offer.

Why is it important to take vitamins?

Many nutrients are supposed to come from food, but think about whether you eat a healthy diet every day. If your plate doesn't include 50% vegetables, herbs, fruits, and berries; 25% complex carbohydrates (grains, cereals, bread, pasta, starchy root vegetables); 20% protein (eggs, poultry, fish, seafood, offal, legumes); and fats (seeds, nuts, oils), you should supplement with micronutrients.

What are vitamins?

These are organic compounds that support metabolism, and cell growth, and energize us. Most vitamins are excreted from the body, so they need to be replenished regularly.

Water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins

Vitamin groups

Water-soluble vitamins include, for example, vitamin C and a large number of B vitamins. They do not accumulate in the body, so they should be taken daily with or without food and washed down with plenty of water.

Vitamin C stays in the body for only a few hours, so the daily dose can be divided, and B vitamins are best consumed with breakfast to stay energized throughout the day.

Fat-soluble vitamins include A, K, E, and D. We need them in small doses, and since they accumulate in the liver, they should be consumed with food rich in healthy fats. If you eat a healthy diet, you don't need to take these vitamins.

Vitamin D is involved in the proper metabolism of calcium and regulates immune responses and even hair growth. It is needed for muscles, nerves, and immunity, so don't forget to get some sun and include more fatty fish, and dairy products, as well as liver and egg yolks in your diet.

It is better to take zinc in the morning, calcium and magnesium with dinner, and collagen and amino acids on an empty stomach.
