Immunity Correction Center Director Lyudmila Lapa said that randomly consuming vitamins poses a risk during infection with viral diseases, including the emerging corona virus.
She added that taking vitamins only makes the infection stronger and does not speed up the healing process.
According to her, it is not permissible for people who suffer from digestive system diseases to take vitamins without consulting a specialist.
And she said: “Viruses love vitamins. If a person gets sick, I think there is no need to take vitamins at all, because by that we support the disease, because viruses get energy from vitamins. Of course, this also applies to the Corona virus.”
And Laba indicated that, taking vitamins is an important element in preventing diseases, including the Corona virus, as well as an important stage in the body’s restoration of fitness after recovery.
She said, “Moscow is a currently endemic region: there are few vitamins in the winter, and there is no sunlight in the city, so we recommend vitamin D and vitamin C, all of this is beneficial.” But it is not permissible to take vitamins immediately after recovery, you must wait at least two weeks.
