Natural and synthetic vitamins should be taken with food. This helps them to be better absorbed by the body. This opinion was shared in an interview with URA.RU by allergist-immunologist Vladimir Bolibok.

“Any vitamin complexes, natural or synthetic, are best absorbed when taken with food. This is how all digestive systems are arranged – when the product is digested, then it is assimilated. Some types of vitamins need their own carrier proteins, and they are also better produced when digestion is started, ”Vladimir Bolibok explained.

The immunologist added that natural products cannot replenish the full range of vitamins in the modern world. “We intuitively understand that vitamins in foods are, of course, better, because in food they are in the form of natural isomeric forms, which helps them to be better absorbed. But since the majority of the population now leads a sedentary lifestyle, our caloric expenditure is relatively low, which means that the amount of food consumed should be less, therefore, we can not meet the daily requirement of vitamins. Plus, the intensity of agriculture leads to a shortage of micronutrients in natural products, “said the doctor.

He also clarified that some people currently do not get food at all. And the third component – biologically active substances, such as bioflavonoids (contained in leaves, flowers, fruits, roots of various plants – URA.RU), antioxidants, indoles (substances released from certain vegetables – URA.RU) ), coumarins. There are about 2000 of them and only some of them we get with food. Therefore, they need to supplement the diet with them in the form of pharmaceuticals, “said Bolibok.

On this day, April 4, 1932, the American biochemist Charles Glen King first isolated vitamin C from lemon juice. A discovery was made during the search for a remedy for scurvy.
