Winter is a beautiful time of the year, but during this period, viral infections are actively spreading, according to the medical community Svij.doc.

Some vitamins contribute to boosting the body's resistance to viral infections, which we often suffer from during the cold season, says endocrinologist Anastasiia Haletska.

The Role of B Vitamins in the Body

B vitamins are water-soluble and are collectively responsible for tissue respiration and energy production by cells in our body

They also play a role in the formation of blood cells. A deficiency in B vitamins can lead to B-12 deficiency anemia or folate deficiency anemia.

They are crucial for the nervous system and the normal functioning of the brain. Additionally, they are responsible for the elasticity, youthfulness, and suppleness of the skin, hair, and nails.

The expert mentioned that without these vitamins, intracellular respiration is unfortunately impossible. Another fact is that B vitamins do not accumulate in the body.

  • There are eight vitamins that together form the B-vitamin complex. They are found in various foods, including:
  • Vitamin B1 (thiamine) - in whole grains, pork, and fish
  • Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) - in eggs, dairy products, and liver
  • Vitamin B3 (niacin) - in nuts and sunflower seeds
  • Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) - in mushrooms, fish, avocados, meat, and lentils
  • Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) - in poultry, beef, and fruits
  • Vitamin B7 (biotin) - in fish, meat, and nuts
  • Vitamin B9 (folate) - in vegetables and dairy products
  • Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) - in salmon, poultry, and eggs

The Importance of Vitamin A

Vitamin A is fat-soluble, one of the first vitamins discovered, and it is crucial for the human body. It accumulates in the liver and can be obtained from various foods. It is responsible for growth, the immune response of the body, and the condition of the skin, teeth, and hair.

Even a slight deficiency in vitamin A can lead to vision impairment and cause dry eye syndrome.
