Take Vitamins C And E Every Day
Is taking vitamins C and E every day recommended for the situation as it is now? Can children aged 12 years can take vit C and E every day?
Thank you for the question.
The epidemic of COVID-19 today indeed raises concerns. Moreover, this disease can spread quite easily from sufferers to other people. Therefore, increasing endurance is the main key in preventing the emergence of dangerous diseases.
Many ways to increase endurance, one of them by ensuring nutritional needs are met properly. Vitamin C and vitamin E is one type of vitamin that has a good function in supporting the immune system. Not only that, you need to consume a variety of vitamins, minerals and other nutritional sources in a balanced manner so that they don't get sick easily. It's okay for children to be given vitamin C and E supplements, as long as the dose is appropriate for their age, posture, and needs. However, for long-term consumption (more than 2 weeks), this is still not recommended, unless it is recommended directly by a doctor or pediatrician. Much safer, you ensure that your child's nutritional needs are met, by providing him with a variety of nutritious foods and drinks every day.
Not only that, in order to avoid viral infections, the immune system also needs to be improved by increasing rest, disciplined exercise, do not stress, also do not take drugs or herbs carelessly. Do not forget, also improve personal hygiene and maintain social distance so that the virus does not easily enter the body.
Hope this helps ...
