Can You Consume Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C And Vitamin E All At Once In A Day?
Hello Doctor, can we consume vitamin B complex, vitamin C and vitamin E all at once in a day given the spread of the covid-19 virus now as self-protection? Thank you, please answer the doctor 😊
Hello Lia, Thank you for the question.
Corona virus outbreak now is still worrying for the public. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by a newly discovered corona virus infection. This virus can be transmitted by inhaling coughing and sneezing from sufferers, indirect transmission by touching objects contaminated with this virus then touching the nose, mouth and eyes, or by close contact with the sufferer. COVID-19 causes symptoms similar to those of a common cold such as cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever, headache, joint and muscle pain; but usually the most common symptoms are fever, coughing, and shortness of breath.
You do not need to worry too much at this time because you can do several ways to prevent getting infected with this virus, namely by:
maintain hand hygiene by regularly washing hands with soap and water or with a hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
avoid the habit of touching the nose, mouth and eyes before washing hands
always keep the area clean
Avoid going outside unless very urgent
avoid the crowd if you have to leave the house
keep a distance from others at least 1 meter
avoid people who are coughing and colds
limit interactions with other people
In addition to the above methods, you are also encouraged to maintain health with adequate rest for 7-9 hours every day, increase consumption of nutritious foods regularly including vegetables and fruit, multiply consumption of water, and manage stress well. The use of vitamin supplements is actually not necessary if you can consume a variety of nutritious foods every day, however, there is no prohibition on taking vitamin supplements. Vitamin supplements that can help maintain immunity are vitamin B complex, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, selenium, and zinc. You do not need to look for different supplements with each of these ingredients but as much as possible look for one supplement with a variety of ingredients above to make it more practical. If it is difficult, you may take each of these supplements. However, don't forget that the most important thing is to take the other precautions mentioned above.
I hope this helps.
