Having a good diet, six to eight hours of sleep, physical activity and drinking the right vitamins and supplements are important in staying well and healthy in a pandemic.
Vitamins are essential to good health and wellness, especially in this pandemic but how do we know which vitamins are right for us?
Different vitamins work in different ways. Vitamin C, which is water soluble, can be taken in recommended amounts at any time of the day. Also water soluble are B vitamins, which can be taken any time during the day.
On the other hand, fat soluble vitamins like A, D, E and K dissolve in oil and need to be taken with meals for enhanced absorption. Iron supplements are okay for an empty stomach but not taken with calcium. As for minerals, don’t drink calcium, zinc or magnesium supplements at the same time. It’s also best to have them with meals.

Here are some tips from Watsons on how to stay healthy while we’re still facing a global health crisis:
Take your vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant and 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 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.
