Overall wellness became more than just drinking vitamins and supplements as part of our daily routines. However, this should include taking a good diet, 6-8 hours of sleep, physical activity, and good hygiene. Of course, you have to drink the right vitamins to strengthen your immune system. Vitamins, on the other hand, became essential to good health and wellness, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. But, how do we know which vitamins remain right for us?
Different vitamins work in different ways.
People can take recommended amounts of vitamin C, which remains water-soluble, at any time of the day. B vitamins, which also remain water-soluble, can be taken at any time during the day. Fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K vitamins dissolve in oil. People need to take these, on the other hand, with meals for enhanced absorption. You can also take iron supplements with an empty stomach, but not taken with calcium. As for minerals, don’t take calcium, zinc, or magnesium supplements at the same time. It’s best to have them with meals.
Watsons make vitamins and minerals accessible to Filipinos in their 800+ stores nationwide and through their online channels.
Even during lockdowns and quarantines, most Watsons branches remained open to serve consumers. You can also shop at any Watsons 800+ stores nationwide, online, mobile app, or via call & delivery service.
Here are some tips on how to stay healthy while we’re still facing a global health crisis:
Take your Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant and this can help decrease inflammation, which may improve your immune system. Studies have also shown that Vitamin C helps you recover faster from the common cold. Berocca and Watsons Vitamin C Vitamin E Glutathione Effervescent Tablets are good sources of Vitamin C.
The importance of zinc
The body doesn’t produce zinc so you should get it from vitamins and supplements. Zinc helps with wound healing and growth and development and in improving immune function, among others. Conzace has vitamins A, C, E, and zinc to help improve the body’s resistance against illness and infections.
Those with existing liver problems could be at risk for complications if they are infected with COVID-19. Take care of your liver with Essentiale Forte, which provides nutritional support for the management of damaged liver.
