MC "DORIS CLINICS's Choices - Vitamin D and C


Why are vitamin D and vitamin C the two most important vitamins for immunity and the good functioning of the body?

Vitamin D

Half of the population is deficient in vitamin D. This vitamin and hormone is almost never diagnosed, and its lack is often associated with various types of cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, so-called autoimmune conditions, etc. .

Vitamin D protects us from acute respiratory tract infections such as colds, flu and other respiratory infections. In people with vitamin D deficiency, the likelihood of infection and severe course of COVID-19 is much greater. A study shows that 80% of hospitalized patients in Spain with COVID-19 were vitamin D deficient.

50 to 125 micrograms of vitamin D3 (2000 to 5000 IU) is a great dose for daily immune support. To counteract a serious deficiency, however, it may be necessary to take larger daily doses for a while.

Vitamin C

Neutrophils are the immune cells that help our bodies fight pathogens. They contain 50 times more vitamin C than that in our blood plasma. Vitamin C is also important for increasing the production of other white blood cells, which protect us from infections and through which we maintain a good level of our immune system.

Dangerous free radicals are released in the body in the following situations: excessive intake of harmful foods and calories, smoking, exposure to toxins, excessive consumption of sugar, etc. All of them lead to cell damage caused by the so-called oxidative stress. As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C is extremely important in reducing the damage from these lesions.

Vitamin C deficiency can lead to bleeding gums, tooth loss, body bruising, irritability, muscle weakness, difficult wound healing, and more. You can get vitamin C from foods like peppers, thyme, parsley, spinach, kiwi, citrus fruits, and broccoli, but more often than not, supplemental intake is more than necessary.

The liposomal form of supplements is the best way for them to be absorbed by the body and transported to every part of the body.

Do not postpone the daily care and intake of vitamins D and C, which are vital for your health.

Get a referral from your personal doctor and do a simple blood test or come to the "Epika" MC. for an in-depth review with the methods of functional medicine to learn more about the importance and connection of vitamin D to your current health.
